I cut the cord (except the broadband) a while back and seems that AMC, hbo, showtime, Comedy Central (Viacom) and just about every single entertainment from sports to wrestling has figured out how to stream their content for a fee and sell advertising online- so why does everyone doubt that Disney has made the wrong decision regarding keeping ESPN with cable for now. Do analysts and pundits really think they know more than Disney executives, do they think they are playing Mickey Mouse? Holly #$%$ people are just stupid- just wait them out. When there is no longer large amounts of money to be made via cable programming and advertising, then Disney will make the move. If anything they gave their vote of confidence in the cable package. I would not underestimate how addicted people are to commercials being better than most the shows and channel flipping- that is a hard habit to toss.
I'd like to see some numbers -perhaps the call will elaborate. Pretty decent report, lets see if the negative nanny's start with the 'spending more on content', etc. I'd like to see at least 23 tomorrow.
the dips before a conference call to explain what the report mentioned- 1 wide release as a distribution arrangement only for Lakeshore- same damn thing with TWX- just not that many movies in the quarter and everyone runs for the doors- I love it.
Relatively new - just noticed they have a new attorney that specializes in this sort of thing elected to the board- I'd say that is a pretty strong message. Not exactly thrilled with the implications that it could be a vestige of hope due to a poor earnings report tomorrow. Assuming the dollar will make things appear less exciting. I hope the preparation for exporting natural gas via LNG will help things take off- when do they start- end of the year? Well here's hoping they blow it away like SKX.
I don't see any specific number- but with Has beating expectations and the war between MAT and Has appears to have raised the stakes in any buyout offers. Assuming Jakk has a longer contract for Frozen would make them crucial to have(own) in the event Mat is loosing their Frozen properties /rights 2016 to HAS. Just the Frozen toy line alone is worth more than their market cap alone- in the event they got a good contract that does not expire until 2018 +.
I'd like to see a threesome between LGF, Starz and AMC- I bet that is what Malone has in mind. They would be the king of content- superior to HBO and Showtime.
been watching for about 10 minutes
With the battle between BABBA and Tencent and Baidu, this will be bought out at a very nice premium or it will simply grow into a goliath along side the big three. The advertising revenue will be a huge golden goose and the tie in's with larger properties to ride the marketing waves (like Disney, despite not having exclusive deals=still an opportunity=advertising revenue and possible future exclusive contracts). Can the short, short,short- imbeciles please give it a break.
is blaming a strategy, how exactly does that work. Has it made you money? Do people that don't agree with you ever get it right? What about what they have done right? Holly #$%$, why am I bothering?
well said, but I bet this type has to suffer from their own ignorance- and attempt to make those around him suffer also. It is probably a great mystery to this individual why they are unable to make money in the market blaming the players and companies constantly, whilst ignoring their own choices and thinking.
Why=Consolidation- and to belong to one of the 3 behemoth internet companies-Tencent, Baidu or Alibaba- that already bought a large percentage of Yoku already for 30/ share. So it is most likely Alibaba will want the rest, but considering all 3 are at war with each other anything is possible. Or they can decide to cooperate and use the advertising for all their companies and intertwined businesses together- either way Yoku get's paid for advertising products. Alibaba owns a movie studio also- don't folks think that may fit with production of a multitiude of programs on Yoku? Then there are the programs about video games- maybe Tencent wants that? It's good to be wanted- hence the stock price and expanding business.
yup a mistake- makes it harder to get back in when you loose that extra dollar - this is probably a long term hold. I usually learn after 3 lessons, then forget latter- then repeat.
Can they make money riding it up slow or can they pull the rug from under the shorts and make money that way? What are the odds of anything happening before options exp on June 19? The premium would be better, but the risk- is a real gamble.
