  • These 4 Stocks Are "Future Proof"

    By Adem Tahiri - June 17, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, CNK, DWA, RGC

    Blockbuster, Borders, Circuit City; it seems like every day technology is putting another household name out of business. While investing has always been about anticipating "what's next," today's investors have to be especially careful. For today's investors a rock solid company with a wonderful history can literally become worthless over the course of one short year.

    But because of this technological disruption, I feel that some investors more »

  • The Next Industry to Die: Hollywood?

    By Sam Mattera - June 15, 2013 | Tickers: CNK, NFLX, RGC

    Legendary filmmakers Steven Spielberg and George Lucas made headlines this week after they warned that Hollywood could be on the verge of imploding. Specifically, Spielberg and Lucas believe that studios have made too many aggressive bets on too few films, and that a string of box office failures (something that they feel is inevitable) could bring the industry to its knees.

    It’s an interesting premise, and given that it more »

  • Which Cinema Stock Will Give You Max Returns?

    By Ben Popkin - June 14, 2013 | Tickers: CKEC, CNK, IMAX, RGC

    Going to see a movie used to be a good evening out with the family or a date, but now, people seem to be spending more time at home enjoying their personal entertainment systems. Since peaking in 2002, domestic theater attendance has dropped from 1.58 billion tickets sold to a projected 1.27 billion tickets to be sold in 2013. With Americans staying in to watch TV, what can more »

  • Can You Make Money in This 'Dying' Industry?

    By Michael Russell - June 4, 2013 | Tickers: CKEC, CNK, NCMI, RGC

    The cinema industry is dead. In the mass media, such articles have become commonplace. Some articles blame the lack of creativity of filmmakers. Others note premium video-on-demand services and distributors tinkering with release windows. But concerns about the death of cinemas are much overstated. Carmike Cinemas (NASDAQ: CKEC) offers a great way to exploit this pessimism.

    The first thing to note when looking at this industry is that although attendance more »

  • More Risks for Regal to Reckon With

    By Brian Hill - May 13, 2013 | Tickers: CKEC, CNK, IMAX, RGC

    With nearly 7,000 screens and more than 500 theater locations, Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC) is the nation’s largest developer and operator of multi-screen theaters. 

    In its recently filed 10-K, they present a variety of risks the company faces, including the growing competition from video-on-demand and other home entertainment platforms,  which I analyzed in my previous post “Regarding the Risks of Being Regal”.

  • The Advertising Stock You Shouldn't Overlook

    By Mark Lin - May 6, 2013 | Tickers: CNK, NCMI, RGC

    In today’s world of declining attention spans, companies are increasingly turning to cinema advertisements to reach out to consumers. National CineMedia (NASDAQ: NCMI), which makes money by selling advertisements in North America’s largest in-theater digital network, is the prime beneficiary of this trend.

    However, much of the expected growth in cinema advertising is already factored into the stock price with National CineMedia trading at a forward P/E more »

  • SWOT Analysis of National CineMedia

    By Eric Novinson - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: CNK, NCMI, RGC

    National Cinemedia (NASDAQ: NCMI) sells the ads that show up on movie theater screens. This business model limits National's operating costs because the movie theaters pay for much of the necessary equipment, which allows this advertising company to pay out large dividends. National Cinemedia has a symbiotic relationship with the movie theaters themselves. Three major movie theater chains, AMC, Cinemark, (NYSE: CNK) and Regal, (NYSE: RGC), created National Cinemedia more »

  • Is Size a Disadvantage for America’s Hometown-Theatre Chain?

    By Mark Lin - April 8, 2013 | Tickers: CKEC, CNK, RGC

    Size matters, or at least that is what the market thinks, assigning the smallest motion picture exhibitor, Carmike Cinemas (NASDAQ: CKEC), a low forward P/E multiple. However, in this case, the undervaluation for Carmike Cinemas is further justified by the fact that the company is highly-geared and does not pay a dividend.

    Carmike Cinemas is the nation’s fourth-largest motion picture exhibitor, with 249 theatres and 2,502 screens more »

  • IMAX: Maximum Growth, Minimum Risk

    By Leo Sun - March 12, 2013 | Tickers: CNK, IMAX, RGC, DIS

    Over the past decade, IMAX (NYSE: IMAX) has become synonymous with the premium experience of watching Hollywood blockbusters - on a screen as high as 98 feet with over 40 speakers. It wasn’t always this way - for the first three decades after its debut in 1971, IMAX was restricted to special presentations at museums and educational venues, since technical limitations kept films short, at approximately 40-50 minutes.

  • Time for Investors to Go to the Movies

    By Frank Constantino - February 19, 2013 | Tickers: CNK, RGC

    The movie theater business is one that has always intrigued me.  I'm not a movie buff and on average I probably go to the movies four times a year.  That number seems below average from what friends and family tell me.  However, I see the power in the theater business. 

    Movie theaters are durable businesses that have high margins, generate lots of cash, and have high barriers to entry more »
