    Lionsgate finds a new young-adult novel to split into multiple movies

    With The Hunger Games series a mere two films away from wrapping up, Lionsgate finds itself facing a future without a plucky, confident heroine to help it dominate the box office. After what is assumed to have been several awkward weeks spent asking their teenage children just what the cool kids with readily disposable incomes were reading nowadays, executives at Lionsgate went out and bought themselves what could become the next big young-adult movie franchise: Jason Mott’s The Wonder Of All Things.

    Mott’s sophomore novel, The Wonder Of All Things tells the story of Ava, a 13-year-old girl who finds she has restorative powers after she heals the injuries of her best friend Wash, following an incident where a plane crashes at an air show. Word of her ability gets out, and soon people from all over the world are flocking to Ava’s small town in the hope she’ll use her gift on them. Deadline compares the premise to other films that feature an intersection between the supernatural and the mundane, like The Green Mile or Phenomenon, although it sounds like there’s a bit of M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable in there, too.

  • Is this the next teen sensation? Lionsgate has picked up the latest secret super-powers novel The Wonder of All Things by Jason Mott, author of The Returned.

    The Wonder of All Things is similar to the film Phenomenon and less like superhero movie. A miraculous thing happens to a character, and then that character has to deal with the repercussions of their newly acquired gifts, along with the attention it generates. Here's the logline from Deadline:

    When a pilot loses control of his plane during an air show and crashes into the stands, two 13-year-old best friends, Wash and Ava, are trapped beneath the rubble. They are found by rescuers, but Wash is seriously injured, a chunk of steel protruding from his belly. Ava tries to help him by pulling free the metal, but blood rushes out; he's dying. She panics and puts her hands on the wound, crying. When she pulls her hands away, the wound is gone, healed without a scar. Rescuers captured the miracle on their cell phone cameras. It goes up on YouTube, and she becomes the center of attention from media, scientists, and religious leaders.
    This makes the second deal for Mott, as The Returned is currently a TV series on ABC.

    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.

    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.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • 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. "

  • Full story on main page, under Headlines. My favorite excerpt:

    " 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.

    lagunadan92677 lagunadan92677 Jul 3, 2014 7:27 AM Flag

    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.
