    The article is rather lengthy to post and Yahoo is not cooperating atm. You can Google the headline to read the rest.

  • Boeing Co. appears positioned to beat out two smaller rivals for the bulk of a multibillion-dollar NASA contract to ferry astronauts to and from orbit, according to government and aerospace-industry officials.

    An award to Boeing would represent a victory over the newer Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or SpaceX, which had been considered a favorite in many quarters because of its lower costs and nimbler approach. The decision on the development of space taxis will be a milestone for commercial space endeavors, locking in unparalleled authority for contractors to develop and operate vehicles with limited federal oversight. An announcement is expected as early as Tuesday.

    Recent signals from the Obama administration, according to the officials, indicate that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's leadership has concluded on a preliminary basis that Boeing's proposed capsule offers the least risky option, as well as the one most likely to be ready to transport U.S. crews to the international space station within three years. The officials cautioned that a last-minute shift by NASA chief Charles Bolden, who must vet the decision, could change the result of the closely watched competition.

    But interviews with numerous space experts from industry, government and elsewhere—all of whom have been monitoring developments closely—reveal a growing consensus that Boeing is likely to emerge as the big winner to develop and operate the nation's replacement for the space-shuttle fleet, which was retired in 2011.

    Good point about Burns, Goldman, Merrill & BABA. Ya just KNOW that a good part of Burn's presentation will be about LGF's partnership with BABA (As if they didn't already know) and it's potential. I hear quacking also, and it ain't my beloved Anaheim Ducks!

    Burns did a great job last time. Let's see what happens Friday through Tuesday, during and just after the presentations.

    The last I heard BABA goes live Thursday the 18th. LGF may not be finished with the BABA boost in stock price yet. These next 6 trading days could be very interesting with Burns & BABA.

    May through August would be a separate pattern and could be interpreted as a completed head & shoulders, complete with sell-off. The current inverted head & shoulders pattern is about 95% completed. Time will tell.

  • July through present time on chart. Should the pattern complete in the next few days, BA would shoot up to high 130's up to about 141. Worth watching.

    Past Milestone Award recipients include Clint Eastwood, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, director Steven Spielberg, director James Cameron, NBC Universal Vice Chairman Ron Meyer, Weinstein Co.'s Bob and Harvey Weinstein, CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves and Walt Disney Co. Chairman and CEO Bob Iger.

  • It's been a good year for Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. Chief Executive Jon Feltheimer.

    The head of the Santa Monica movie and TV studio reaped dramatically higher compensation because of a new long-term contract that he signed in May 2013. The agreement extended Feltheimer's tenure to May 22, 2018.

    Then, in August, the studio reported a better-than-expected profit of $43.3 million in its fiscal first quarter, spurred in part by lower marketing costs.

    On Tuesday, the Producers Guild of America announced that Feltheimer would be honored with the Milestone Award at the 26th annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Jan. 24, 2015.

    The award, the guild's highest honor, recognizes "an individual or team who has made historic contributions to the entertainment industry."

  • Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. -- already the most acquisitive Chinese company this year -- is about to be armed with another $8 billion for deals as it seeks to transform itself from an e-commerce site into an Internet behemoth.

    Purchases could span mobile applications such as Snapchat Inc., an Internet-television provider like Roku Inc., smaller content studios such as Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. (LGF) and even cloud-software companies such as Akamai Technologies Inc. (AKAM), according to CM Research. A case can also be made for acquiring Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO), which owns a stake in Alibaba, though other transactions are more likely, said Yahoo shareholder Ironfire Capital LLC.

    At the top end of expectations, the Alibaba IPO would raise $21.1 billion, topping Facebook Inc's (FB.O) $16 billion listing in 2012 as the largest-ever technology IPO.

    Alibaba, could set a new record for the world's biggest IPO if underwriters exercise an option to sell additional shares to meet demand - putting it as high as $24.3 billion, and overtaking Agricultural Bank of China Ltd's $22.1 billion listing in 2010.

    The company launched its IPO on Monday and is expected to price the deal on September 18.

    Co-founder and executive chairman Jack Ma has spoken with investors in New York and Boston so far this week, presenting the company's growth strategies and addressing concerns over its corporate governance.

    Alibaba has kept tight control over the IPO, leaving a vacuum at the helm of the group of banks managing the offering - a move that has led to a complicated arrangement and left some bankers complaining it has created additional layers of work, according to people familiar with the situation.

  • (Reuters) - Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (IPO-BABA.N) has received enough orders for its record-breaking initial public offering to cover the entire deal within just two days of its launch, people familiar with the IPO process said on Wednesday.

    There was no indication as to where most of that demand was in the $60-$66 per share indicative range for the IPO, said the people, who couldn't be named because details of the offering demand aren't yet public.

    Alibaba, a Chinese e-commerce titan, declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.

    Thanks Wanna, I own about the same shares as the last 2 years, but I'm sure they do target larger shareholders in general. I don't remember them calling before. With all the litigation, or attempted litigation, regarding LGF, I didn't recognize their name and let the call go to voice mail. Now I see it's routine.

    Saturday A.M. I got a phone message from MacKenzie Partners, Inc. regarding voting before the annual meeting. I already voted, but this is the first time ANYONE has contacted me prior to ANY annual meeting. Have they contacted others on this board?

    "Glad to know that LGF shares a little bit in this via our EPIX partnership"

    "a little bit"

    Wanna, if you're saying that success for one Epix partner regarding hit movies is beneficial for all partners, then I would have to agree. In fact, that would be kind of obvious (not a slight), so I would be surprised why anyone would argue against such a simple statement.

    This message was approved by me, Dan

  • One week only. Pretty much pure profit, whatever the box office take. I can't help but wonder if this means a reboot of the series is coming or if this is just a way to make some easy money for the current quarter.

    LGF buys North American rights to zombie film Maggie, but Yahoo doesn't want you to know about it. (I tried to post the article 10 times.) You can Google the movie and read for yourself. Lionsgate bought the movie before it's expected premier at the Toronto Film Festival.

  • The makers of The Expendables 3 are continuing their crackdown on everything piracy related. Movie studio Lionsgate has now started to warn downloaders of the film, with alerts also going out to seedbox users.

    Over the past few weeks movie studio Lionsgate has rolled out an unprecedented anti-piracy campaign to stop people from sharing leaked copies of The Expendables 3.

    Aside from dragging six file-sharing sites to court, Lionsgate sent out hundreds of thousands of takedown notices to websites that linked to pirated copies of the leaked movie.

    As a result all traces of the movie were completely wiped from many file-sharing sites. However, the movie studio still isn’t satisfied and is now going after individual downloaders as well.

    Lionsgate has started sending takedown notices targeting people sharing the movie via BitTorrent. The notices are being sent to various ISPs who are urged to forward them to the customers whose accounts were monitored sharing the movie.
