    PIXR EARNINGS OUT 1st TWO WEEKS IN MAY

    I've seen it go both ways.

    At the end of
    February, I sent an email to Bryn to ask about box-office
    details and got an auto reply because she was on
    vacation.

    In the auto-reply she attempted to answer
    several typical investor questions and stated that
    earnings wound not be released until May.

    My point
    being �the May date for earnings was picked quite
    awhile ago�. I would not try to read too much into it,
    but if you must... Hmmm, you may assume that they are
    being nice and giving the shorts more time to cover.
    (LOL)

    Perhaps you should be.

    The facts are
    starting to add up !!!

    If I was short on this stock
    I would start to worry a lot about
    some of the
    "facts" that I've seen posted here.

    It appears
    that some people are trying to post facts in order to

    help others make an informed decision about this
    stock.

    zzzxxx, What have you done for this stock
    lately.

    Oh that right, you are the Walt basher and the hype
    smasher. (LOL)

    Good luck, you need it.

    It appears that Pixar tried to issue a press
    release in which that
    stated that Toy Story 2 is now
    the number two animated motion
    picture of all
    time. Of course, they mixed this news in with
    their
    Academy Award nomination and no one was
    listening.

    HOLLYWOOD, Calif., March 26 --
    Disney/Pixar Pictures has issued the following caption to

    http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20000326/TOYSTORY

    The stars of Disney/Pixar's hit computer-animated

    horse, Bullseye; Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head; super-cool
    action figure Buzz Lightyear and his cowgirl companion,
    Jessie -- make their way down the red carpet at the
    Shrine Auditorium on Hollywood's biggest night. The

    performed on the telecast by Grammy Award-winning singer
    Sarah McLachlan. Released in 1999, "Toy Story 2" became
    the second most successful animated film of all time
    and a favorite with moviegoers all over the world.
    Academy Award-winner John Lasseter directed the film.

    Last Tuesdays's International numbers were
    $186.5M
    Last weeks numbers from Japan were $5.1M
    Total is
    $191.6M (.2 additional from U.S. domestic)

    These
    numbers do not include Europe !!!

    It is no wonder
    that Tarzan has not been updated in awhile.
    It was
    released in June of last year so its run should be over by
    now.

    Amazon says "This item will be released on April
    3, 2000."

    eToys says " Ships on: 3/23/00"


    I'd place my bet on Amazon over eToys.

    Even
    though prior press releases said March 2000, the nature
    of
    computer software dictates that it will
    always be late.

    Ouch, It appears that we�ve hit rock bottom.

    Time to sell before the earnings from Toy Story 2 arrive.

    Lord knows how far this stock will drop with a huge infusion of cash.

    The only reason to settle for less is if you
    are
    one of four million shorts praying for a
    drop.

    BTW. Has anyone been able to verify the
    following?

    "Brad Bird has signed a three year contract with
    Pixar"

    http://www.aint-it-cool-news.com/display.cgi?id=5252

    Brad Bird, director of The Iron Giant... Could be
    rocket fuel for PIXR !!!

    It seems like the folks
    are Pixar a keeping the cards a little too
    close.

    With good news like this and revenue from Toy Story 2
    already here

    This stock could easily soar past $60

  • at_last_at_last by at_last_at_last Mar 10, 2000 11:55 AM Flag

    Correct me, if I am wrong, but I believe that it
    is already March 11th in Japan.

    Next week TS2
    becomes the number three animated movie of all
    time
    Soon it will be hitting the half-billion
    mark

    Guess what boys, earnings are already
    flowing

    This is going to be a blow out quarter
    $$$$$$

    To $60 and Beyond

    RE: Shorts having made money

    by tortoise28 Mar 9, 2000 6:46 PM
    at_last_at_last at_last_at_last Mar 9, 2000 7:51 PM Flag

    The shorts don�t really make money until they
    cover.
    Most of the �4 million shares� shorted on Pixar were

    shorted at prices between $40 and $50 per
    share.

    How could one call these shorts, smart investors.
    Because they did
    most of their business at a time
    when revenue was low and expected
    revenue was
    still a six months to a year away.

    Recently,
    many of the shorts have started to buy back in the $35
    - $37 range.
    This is a smart move because they
    are locking in their profits just prior
    to a time
    when revenue is ramping up. (The first few quarters of
    real earnings
    from a movie releases tend to be
    fairly loaded.)

    The good news that the shorts are
    now covering. The writing is on the wall.
    Prices
    are going higher. The bad news is that the shorts are
    making profits
    by covering at these levels. (If a
    few aren�t burned then they will be back.)

    It
    is too bad that Pixar�s PR doesn�t do more to hype
    this stock. It would
    be great if a few shorts got
    burned so they would think twice about shorting
    Pixar
    again. (Pixar�s management team is a little too
    friendly, huh?)
