    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.

    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!

    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.

  • Connie Britton has replaced Sharon Stone in Lionsgate’s action comedy film “American Ultra,” which recently began shooting in New Orleans.

    Lionsgate acquired U.S. distribution rights in March for $7 million for “American Ultra,” starring Kirsten Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg with “Project X” director Nima Nourizadeh helming from a script by Max Landis.

    Eisenberg will portray a stoner and Stewart will play his girlfriend in a small town. His life takes an unexpected turn when his past comes back to haunt him as a sleeper agent in a government operation created by Britton’s character. Stone left due to a scheduling conflict.

    Britton stars in Lionsgate’s “Nashville,” currently in its second season on ABC.
    “Ultra”producers are Anthony Bregman, Kevin Frakes, Raj Brinder Singh, David Alpert and Britton Rizzio, with Ray Angelic as executive producer.

    Britton is repped by WME and Untitled Entertainment.

    Gee whiz wanna, why wouldn't you accept investment advice from someone with the maturity level of a six year-old? It must have taken him all night long to think of "Wanna-Dollar."

    I've blocked him just as I previously blocked "Chicken Little", aka aaron, last year. I have no time for these nitwits who refuse to grow up. The only way to discourage attention seekers is to put them on ignore.

  • 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: 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    Beggs' apparent startup, however, is driving toward a goal of $100 million in annual profitability, underpinned by the longevity of its hit shows.
    The key to success, he adds, is taking advantage of a rapidly expanding array of digital platforms that takes Lionsgate well beyond the traditional confines of American network TV.

    "It all happens much sooner. The windows open up sooner. People want content quickly. Carriers that we're selling it to want to hold onto it. That's the new battleground, between stacking and SVOD and who gets what, when and what's the value," Beggs said, describing an unfolding TV landscape.
    Unaligned with a major network, Lionsgate as an outside supplier thrives by converting ongoing rights to TV shows it produces into digital revenue.

    So while Lionsgate has a hit in Nashville, which is headed to a third season on ABC, it's also headed toward syndication and second cycle windows on other TV titles via innovative streaming deals.
    A case in point is the binge-watcher Orange Is the New Black, whose second season has just debuted on Netflix and already has been renewed for a third season by the U.S.-based video streaming giant.
    "They will watch the whole season. And then they will wait for another year. And that will be painful," Beggs said of fans watching each season of Orange Is the New Black in one go, or until sleep overtakes them, as opposed to scheduled, extended viewing.

    And Beggs points to Deadbeat proving a hit with international buyers at the recent Los Angeles Screenings after being picked up for a second season on Hulu on the heels of its first-season launch.

  • Lionsgate Television and Tandem Communications have set crime drama Sex, Lies And Handwriting at ABC. The project, now in development, is intended as straight-to-series, with a fall production start in Vancouver eyed should ABC move to greenlight the pilot script.

    Sex, Lies And Handwriting is the first project to come out of the joint venture Lionsgate Television and Tandem Communications, a Studiocanal company, launched last year to co-finance and distribute hourlong dramas using the straight-to-series model Tandem employed for its first drama series, Crossing Lines, as well as its miniseries including The Pillars Of The Earth and its follow-up World Without End. As expected, the partners tweaked Tandem’s existing approach, in which the Munich-based company financed its series (mostly though international pre-sales) and completed the projects before taking the finished product to the U.S.. With Sex, Lies And Handwriting, an American network, ABC, is brought in much earlier in the process for more simultaneous sales in the U.S. and Europe and Canada. Other network development partners already on board for the potential series include Bell Media (Canada), TF1 Network (France) and ProSiebenSat.1 (Germany). The series would be produced in Canada by Sea To Sky, the Canadian studio joint venture between Lionsgate and Thunderbird Films.

    Rider, I couldn't agree with you more regarding Frozen. Compared to other Disney animation films, I considered it average. IMO Frozen couldn't hold a candle to Beauty and the Beast. ANY song from Beauty was better than Let It Go. The thing is, the movie was aimed at small children, and I don't recall any other movie for children that ran against Disney. Strategy and a little luck helped make it a blockbuster. When I walked into a theater and saw the special Frozen song rooms, I rolled my eyes but felt a bit jealous also.

  • Hellbent on pleasing the underserved--and burgeoning--Hispanic audience, Lionsgate and Pantelion Film have scheduled upcoming flick "Spare Parts" for release on January 16, 2015.

    Starring George Lopez, the film is based on the true story of four Hispanic high school students who start a robotics club and, with no experience and little money, work their way up to challenge the country's reigning robotics champ, MIT.

    Jaime Lee Curtis, Marisa Tomei, Alexa PenaVega and Carlos Pena star alongside Lopez. Sean McNamara, who has helmed many kids TV and film projects, is directing from a script by newcomer Elissa Matsueda.

  • Kevin Beggs told the Banff Festival how the mini-studio is creating content for the next wave of premiere content distributors in an expanding streaming and subscription pay universe.

    BANFF, ALBERTA – Lionsgate TV Group chairman Kevin Beggs took to the stage at the Banff World Media Festival on Monday for what was expected to be an applause-filled victory lap.

    But the 15-year Lionsgate veteran, who has helped the mini-studio grow to major Hollywood status with TV hits like Mad Men, Weeds, Nurse Jackie, Anger Management and Orange Is the New Black, didn't come to brag.
    Instead his simple keynote message to Banff delegates was Lionsgate TV is just catching fire.
    "We view ourselves as just starting," Beggs told the Banff Springs Hotel audience as he answered questions from the iconic former CBS newsman Dan Rather.

    To be sure, increasing demand for Lionsgate TV shows has put the mini-studio's TV group in an enviable position.
    But Beggs told The Hollywood Reporter after his keynote address that he goes to work every day assuming he leads a startup.
    "And you have to act on these opportunities as if, should they not work, you will be out of business," he added. (contd.)

    "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."
