    You�ve been targeting a price of $23.50 for months. What caused you to pick that target (tools, friends in high places, etc)? Do you plan to turn around and go long once it hits your target or will you finally be out of here and move on to bigger and better things?

    Thanks in advance

    Hmmm, interesting new products, a relatively low P/E and an approx 2% dividend.

    This stock looks ready for a strong year.

    CREAF might be a nice addition to a diversified protfolio.

    Speaking of next year,

    Next year I expect the shrub to borrow one from tricky dick�s book and bring the boys home a few months before the election. It�s almost a sure fire way to gain a few points in the polls.

    What do you think?

    Of course I do believe in your targets; pixr is bound to head much higher as shorts are squeezed.

    Why Pixar Prefers Disney

    at_last_at_last at_last_at_last Sep 19, 2003 2:20 PM Flag

    A few points to reconsider from my last post:

    1) If evergreen income tapers off then then can't fly too high off �just one movie per year�.

    2) Disney is responsible for part of the evergreen effect (via stores, via television, via theme parks). Pixar needs Disney more than Disney needs Pixar.

    A few more points for the longs to consider

    1) This year your investment in Pixar was highly diluted due to employee stock options

    2) From what I recall �Forever more new employee stock options will continue to dilute your investment in Pixar�

    3) Each year, a fixed percentage of outstanding shares is used to calculate and create a new pool of employee shares

    4) Even if the stock splits, dilution continues at the current rate �in perpetuity�

    5) Steve Jobs doesn�t care squat about investors. He only cares about employees. That is the number one reason �you no longer get a letter from the CEO and you don�t get posters in the mail�.

    * Unless Steve Jobs changes his ways, I no longer see Pixar as a good long-term investment.

    $80 by Nov, Will it happen, will I lose

    I too shorted in the 60�s

    Who would have thunk that this @#!$ stock would have soared into the 70�s

    If this stock continues to climb I might also be forced into covering

    I�m no worried about a stock split. It will never happen, Steve Jobs likes a high price. Cause it keeps the shares in the hands of the wealthy and it makes the stock less liquid. These be good for us shorts, and good for Stevie boy

    I am a itsy bitsy bit worried about it heading into the $80�s.
    Upward pressure would squeeze a few of us into covering
    In turn, their covering could force more of us into covering
    I�d be like the snowman effect from Monster�s Inc
    Careful of yellow snow cones, eh?

    Regardless, It probably won�t hit mid $80�s until early November
    Whenst the DVD hits the market and millions of copies are sold

    I�ll be coverith longst before than

    Dow Jones Business News
    Pixar Net Jumps 87% on Success of 'Finding Nemo'
    Thursday August 7, 5:45 pm ET

    EMERYVILLE, Calif. -- Pixar Animation Studios posted an 87% jump in second-quarter profit on revenue from its hugely successful animated movie, " Finding Nemo."
    The digital-animation studio late Thursday reported net income of $19.5 million, or 34 cents a share, compared with net income of $10.4 million, or 20 cents a share, a year earlier.

    The mean estimate of analysts surveyed by Thomson First Call (News - Websites) was for earnings of 22 cents a share.

    Revenue more than doubled to $48.9 million from $22.8 million a year earlier.

    Pixar said its revenue was driven primarily by $260 million in world-wide box office receipts from "Finding Nemo" during the quarter. The film opened on May 30.

    "'Finding Nemo' has passed 'The Lion King' to become the most successful animated film ever released in North America," said Steve Jobs, Pixar's chief executive, in a prepared statement.

    Pixar makes a big splash with latest film
    Thursday August 7, 8:55 pm ET
    By reporters in New York

    Worldwide box office receipts from Finding Nemo helped Pixar, the computer animation studio, increase second-quarter revenues to $48.9m, versus $22.8m a year-ago. Box office sales of the underwater adventure during the quarter was $260m. Receipt sales are now at $374m.

    "Finding Nemo has passed The Lion King to become the most successful animated film ever released in North America," said Steve Jobs, Pixar's chairman and chief executive officer.

    The California based company earned $19m or 34 cents per diluted share compare to $10.4m, or 20 cents per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Earnings exceeded the group's previous guidance of 12 cents per share and analysts estimates of 22 cents per share.

    The animation studio's latest success substantially strengthens Mr Jobs' bargaining position with Disney, which markets and distributes Pixar's films. Pixar is contracted to produce two more films for Disney, but can now start renegotiating its arrangement, or even forge an alliance with another distributor
