why would i buy a stock with a $3.5B market cap, that just had revs of $54M? plus the biz model is terrible and the data they provide is not even close to reality. This valuation makes no sense.
Seen these before. The company is doing this so they can take advantage of the expected rising share price. This means earnings will be good. If the stock dips Monday, I will be using this as an opportunity to buy more, prob at a 5% -8% discount over friday's close.
how can this be a public company, when there estimates are garbage. The company produces real estate value estimates that are inaccurate, and is selling for 12x revenue. What a joke! 4 homes on our street have sold for an average of $530K with a range of $520K to $540K in the past 6 months, all roughly the same type of home. ZEstimate is $465K roughly on all the homes...off by 10%??? their algorithms are garbage...what happened to common sense?
Looks like i was way off today.
Good news is days like this should get our 50 day moving upward again. We have broken out about the 200 day average, which we have done before only to fall back. However, the last few days of trading have been promising. Another week or so of $15-$16+ trading should get our 50 day to cross back above our 200 day - bullish signal. Plus the Tron trailers look awesome, which could have IMAX end the year strong.
this stock has been acting schizophrenic lately. I am long, but i think it will pop in the morning then slowly trickle down to negative territory. it has been struggling to stay above $15 for some time.
"Insiders" in most publicly traded companies are on a 10b-51 plan. These plans are set up to sell a specific number of shares on a regular basis, on a specific day of the month/week, over a specific period of time. It is a contract. THis protects the Insider and the Company from being accused of selling ahead of, or after specific news, and allows them to benefit from the appreciation of the shares of the company over time. It doesn't mean they no longer believe in the business (as they are likely being compensated with more shares), they are getting part of their compensation. Sometimes you benefit with news, sometimes you don't, sometimes it doesn't matter. When you see "automatic sale", a 10b-51 has been triggered.
Toy Story will be bigger, for several reasons.
1. it has been over 10 years, so you hit a fresh age group plus previous generation of views. Shrek cranked out 3 movies in a relatively short time span.
2. There is only so much you can do with Shrek, story wise. Toy Story has better story options.
3. Ticket prices in the late 90s were much lower, so it will be easy for TS3 to exceed.
IMAX is a good long-term play as they are opening more and more theatres, higher ticket prices, and a good lineup of flicks. I would rather see a slow steady climb to 25-28, a stock split by the end of the year, and likely little or no debt by this time in 2011. A quick run-up which will lead to major swings, and this stock doesn't need it.
yes, they can't pay their gas bill let alone a monthly fee for XM, her magazine and the donations to Save the Whales.
