    Big beat on earnings, forward earnings guidance raised & earnings call begins soon. I would expect investors are looking for reassurance about Ex-Im bank (How well BA would survive without the bank - worst case scenario, since many believe that the charter will be extended) as well as forward guidance about jet production rate. IMO, I think we'll be at $38 VERY soon.

    Wanna is the accountant around here. IMO, $45 would be the discount price, while $50-$60 would be more realistic.

    Time Warner's worth didn't suddenly increase by $11/sh. on Thursday. It's value was already there. Investors, as a whole, just didn't recognize it. The same with LGF. This is not a $32/sh. company. As more and more articles appear regarding M&A in the industry, and as Lionsgate's name is mentioned more and more in said articles, LGF's true value will be realized whether or not there is ever an actual buyout, IMO.

  • Full story under Headlines on main page. Next to a buyout, the next best thing is being discussed as a possible buyout target! My favorite excerpt:

    " The Internet companies may prefer to sign licensing deals or build more content on their own, said JMP Group Inc. If they wanted to be bolder, Google or Amazon could buy their way to more programming with a purchase of “The Hunger Games” maker Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. (LGF), or Amazon could even buy Electronic Arts Inc. (EA), CRT said. "

    " China's growing appetite for overseas assets could influence the rate of consolidation. Earlier this week, Chinese online giant Alibaba Group and film studio Lions Gate Entertainment struck a partnership to launch a streaming service in China. "Our libraries of historical titles are enormously valuable over there," Tawil says. "Anything with robots or monsters, they go crazy and we've got a ton of that over there." "

    Lionsgate deal with Alibaba positive for shares, says Piper Jaffray

    Piper Jaffray views Lionsgate's (LGF) partnership with Alibaba (BABA) as positive for shares saying it should be "completely incremental" with limited investment. Piper thinks the agreement can lead to a deeper relationship with Alibaba and it keeps an Overweight rating on Lionsgate with a $45 price target.

    "To be called Lionsgate Entertainment World"

    NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF_) are up 4.52% to $30.03 in pre-market trade after it was reported that the entertainment company and Alibaba Group are teaming up on a subscription streaming service for mainland China that will offer the "Twilight" films, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Divergent" and "Mad Men," Variety reports.

    To be called Lionsgate Entertainment World, the service will be available next month exclusively through Alibaba's latest generation of set-top box. The pricing was not disclosed in the announcement but it's likely to be similar to other SVOD services, Variety said.

    The venture moves Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce and Internet giant, into entertainment content delivery for the first time.

    TheStreet Ratings team rates LIONS GATE ENTERTAINMENT CP as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

    "We rate LIONS GATE ENTERTAINMENT CP (LGF) a BUY. This is driven by several positive factors, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself."

    Pre-market up almost $1. Let's hope that sticks during regular trading. (OMG, I still can't believe they pulled this deal off!) Also, ER just over 3 weeks away.

    Funny, just when I was growing tired of CNBC's relentless discussion of Alibaba and it's IPO, THIS happens! Yes, I agree this is huge, in regards to both China AND Alibaba. If Divergent doesn't make it to China's theaters, it will still be seen via streaming.

  • FARNBOROUGH, England, July 14 (Reuters) - Qatar Airways rejected the first three new A380 superjumbos supplied to it by Airbus, its chief executive said, adding it was very disappointed with the European planemaker.

    Qatar Airways Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker also said the airline was not yet ready to finalise an order for 50 Boeing 777X - the U.S planemaker's new version of its 777 long-haul jet.

    Al Baker was speaking to Reuters Insider TV on the sidelines of the Farnborough Airshow.

    Delivery of Qatar Airways's first three A380s has been hit by delays due to unresolved cabin issues, forcing Qatar to withdraw the jet from the industry jamboree in southern England.

    The delivery had originally been expected around the end of May but was pushed back after the airline apparently rejected the aircraft during a routine pre-delivery inspection.

    Each time the market sold off, taking BA with it, BA fought it's way back up to unchanged. I see that as a positive. Friday's close will be key for BA, IMO. I don't want to see BA drop down to the next support level around $122. We still have the airshow starting Monday and the countdown continues for the ER. Good luck longs!

    New Earnings Estimates and Preview

    lagunadan92677 lagunadan92677 Jul 4, 2014 1:02 AM Flag

    BA has shown in the past that it won't stay under $130 for long. That is why my current position is 2 1/2 times larger than it was 2 weeks ago. The Dow is over 17,000 and BA sits below $129 today. Excluding any major macro issue, the air show (with anticipated orders) and earnings (anticipated upside surprise) will, IMO, boost BA to $138-$140+ depending on the degree of the good news ahead.

    Actual EPS has exceeded estimated EPS in at least the last four consecutive quarters. If BA has a successful week at Farnborough and they beat $1.99/sh. earnings the following week, there should be a nice recovery in the stock price. I've added to my positions since I consider below $130 to be dirt cheap.

    "ex-im issue will remain till it gets resolved"

    Your lack of knowledge concerning the stock market is astounding. 30 years of trading experience tells me that Ex-Im bank is a small bump in the road. Even if the bank closed, which it won't, BA would survive just fine. Anyone who reads the news would know that the bank is expected to be reauthorized, albeit last minute. The senate should vote in the near future.

    I couldn't help but notice that your posts are usually political. You are useless to me or anyone else that owns or trades stock. Welcome to my ignore list.

  • CHICAGO, July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] today confirmed that the new 787-9 Dreamliner and the P-8A Poseidon will participate for the first time in flying displays at the Farnborough International Airshow, which runs July 14-20. This year's airshow marks the 40th anniversary of Boeing's participation at Farnborough.

    The 787-9 – flight test airplane ZB001 -- will be on static and flying display from July 14 through mid-day July 18.

    The P-8A, a military derivative of the company's Next-Generation 737-800, is a multi-mission aircraft that provides advanced anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare capabilities for the U.S. Navy and Indian Navy (P-8I). It will join Boeing's multi-role F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fighter in demonstrating versatile capabilities during daily flying displays. Both aircraft also will be on static display.

    Boeing is working with customers and partners to bring several other aircraft to the show, including Qatar Airways' Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, which will be on static display July 14-18. The Boeing Maritime Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) will also be on static display, making its debut at Farnborough. Built on the Bombardier Challenger 605 business jet, the Boeing MSA leverages P-8 mission systems to provide maritime and overland surveillance, anti-piracy, coastal security and search-and-rescue capabilities.

    Together with the Royal Aeronautical Society, Boeing is presenting airplanes built by students from the "Schools Build a Plane Challenge" – an initiative providing young people in UK secondary schools with the opportunity to learn new skills by building an operational light aircraft from a kit: www.boeing.co.uk/sbap. Two aircraft, constructed by students from Yateley School, close to Farnborough in Hampshire and Marling School in Gloucestershire, are scheduled to participate in the flying display on Futures Day, Friday, July 18, and remain on static display for the public weekend.

    Takeover speculation in the press is always good. An actual takeover is even better. I'd say there's a 40% of a takeover within 12 months myself, but this is a message board and not the press.

    140 by 2016? I would expect 138 by October 2014 myself, with 140 being a realistic possibility.
    Considering our current state of Congress, Ex-Im bank issue probably won't be resolved until the last moment on 9/30, but early indications are that Republicans will either give up the fight against it or try to pass a compromised version (shorter term?).
    That doesn't mean that the stock price is dead in the water until then. After a short period of days or weeks, investors will consider the issue as "priced in" and then continue trading pretty close to normal. IMO 145 could be reached by year end.

    P.S. My thanks to falmouth for providing important data on BA. (Also on one of the more challenging message boards, I must say.) Can you imagine a message board where everyone works together and red thumbs are reserved for the spammers? They are few and far between.
    I can't and won't try to be an expert in all of my holdings. I've learned more about 737's and 777X's in the last few months than I expected, but that doesn't compare to my knowledge of some of my other stocks. Help is always appreciated.
