    Re: Fast Money

    As you may recall, the Fast Money guys discussed the fact that Animal Planet and Discovery Channel are more Disney friendly than R-rated movies from LGF. Just keeping it real.

    IMO, we REALLY need a "beat" in earnings. An earnings beat coupled with a short squeeze will do wonders for the share price. Conservatively, I'm thinking $45, but with the right amount of panic $50 could happen.

    Shorts Are Dropping - June 8th

    "Lions Gate Entertainment Corporation (NYSE:LGF) has witnessed a drop of 10.3% or 1,575,357 shares in its short figure. The short interest diminution took it from 15,240,404 on June 15,2015 to 13,665,047 on June 30,2015. In terms of floated shares, the short interest was calculated to be 9.8%. The days to cover are 11 given that the daily volume averaged 1,215,976 shares. The information was released by Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc (FINRA) on July 10th."

    The other 90% haven't felt the need to close their positions yet. Some may be waiting for $38 or $39, but most I think, human nature being what it is, are waiting for $40. Considering all the buzz around Netflix and content in general, I'm thinking $40 could be here very soon. I'd love to see a real short squeeze.

  • AMC has given a straight to series pickup to “Broke,” a drama from Clyde Phillips about two troubled friends who open a restaurant.

    AMC has ordered 10 episodes of the series, targeted for debut next year. Project is based on the Danish series “Bankerot.” Lionsgate TV and AMC Studios are co-producing the project, to be exec produced by Phillips, Henrik Ruben Genz, Malene Blenkov and Piv Bernth.

    “Broke” revolves around a talented chef who is in trouble with the mob and a recently widowed sommelier who is raising his teenage son. The two decide to pursue their longtime dream of opening a restaurant together despite their many personal trials.

    Phillips is coming off of Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” which he steered as showrunner for its final three seasons. He was also a driving force behind Showtime’s “Dexter.”

    “Clyde Phillips is a supremely talented creator we’ve known and admired for years,” said AMC president Charlie Collier. “Clyde has repeatedly demonstrated his skill for crafting complex, flawed, yet irresistible characters, and we’re looking forward to him bringing his continued brilliance to ‘Broke.’ We’re also so happy to be partnering once again with our good friends at Lionsgate after the extraordinary journey we shared on ‘Mad Men.’ ”

    Shorts Are Dropping - June 8th

    Since June 8th, volume has been average at best. Certainly not all of the volume was short covering. Days to cover for shorts was approx. 10-11 days. It seems to me that if LGF can clear $38 VERY soon (Monday is suitable for me), we could see this rally continue awhile longer as remaining shorts panic. IMO
    I began selling some of my extra shares but still am long 7200+ shs.

  • Vin Diesel’s upcoming sword-and-sorcery adventure, The Last Witch Hunter, is apparently conjuring so many good feelings with Lionsgate Entertainment, that they’re already green lighting a sequel.

    The word comes from Diesel himself, who broke the news to his fans earlier today. In his announcement, Diesel also seemingly revealed that Liongate has hopes for a multi-picture franchise surrounding The Last Witch Hunter's world. Referred to as “The Axe and Cross franchise,” by Diesel, it sounds like Lionsgate has plenty of Witch Hunter films ready to go.

    Directed by Brek Eisner, The Last Witch Hunter follows Kaulder (Diesel), an immortal witch hunter who must strike down ancient, evil, witches in modern times. The film also stars Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, and Michael Caine. It hits theaters on October 23.

    I recently received an opinion from Wade Hansen of Learning Markets (Courtesy of Scottrade):

    AFTER getting through resistance between $37.81 & $38.00, he sees a possible target of $45. Due to the steep trajectory of the current climb, it is very possible that LGF will blow through $38 in short order, otherwise a longer consolidation could occur (Below $38) which is more common.

    Take it for what it's worth, but I wouldn't sell below $40.

    I expect BP to be a strong buy around $39 & $40 for longs:

    1) Oil is expected to be higher by the end of the year.

    2) Deepwater Horizon payments will stop soon (June 8, 2015 filing deadline) and will begin to be anniversaried out of earnings (Higher earnings ahead).

    Last day for filing damage claims due to Deepwater Horizon accident. I'm looking ahead at the next 12 months and am buying more shares now:

    "The deadline to file a claim for economic loss resulting from the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster is June 8.

    Since opening on June 4, 2012, the Court Supervised Settlement Program has paid nearly $5 billion to more than 62,000 Gulf Coast businesses and residents.

    Businesses in Southwest Florida that haven’t filed a claim could be eligible for economic loss compensation, even though the oil rig explosion and resulting spill never marred area beaches."
