      • Certainly possible this could slide further -- you never know with illiquid stocks such as HOLL. But I am a long-term investor and think it goes a lot higher in the next two years or so. The sum-of-the parts story here is just way too compelling. It should eventually get respect -- although I do recognize that a catalyst is tough to identify.

    • Someone wants out -- perhaps tax-loss selling related?? Either way, I absolutely LOVE the stock here. This is the way I see it...

      Has $10MM in cash vs ~$40MM market cap. No debt and not burning cash.
      Owns 100% of Broadway.com. Not the greatest asset but at least it is now profitable -- and should be even more so given recent big cost cutting and a new website design.
      Has a 26.2% stake in Movietickets.com and gets paid ~$2MM dividend/yr from the stake.
      Only two players in online movie tickets -- Fandango.com & MovieTickets.com. Comcast bought Fandango in '07 for $200+MM, which would imply a nice valuation for MovieTickets.com. Fandango and MovieTickets.com could ultimately combine as there is no one-stop online movie ticketing service that covers all theater screens.
      Also has ~$150MM in NOLs.
      Divested Hollywood.com, which was losing money. Still getting paid from the buyer -- I think about $8MM left at ~$600K/yr current run rate.
      So, HOLL is basically a sum-of-the-parts story: The Movietickets.com stake is probably worth $30M and the broadway biz $25MM. Then you have the $10MM in cash; the ~$8MM remaining Hollywood.com payout. All this vs ~$40MM market cap.
      Problem is the stock barely trades and may take a long time to play out. But solid risk/reward here for the long term, I believe. Just gotta be able to stomach volatility.
