    After undeniable successes of 3D films such as Avatar and the Hobbit in the box office and Life of Pie and Hugo in the Academy Awards, it looks like 3D is here to stay. Let's examine the prospects of two companies more »

  • What is Holding IMAX Down?

    By Michael Carter - December 27, 2012 | Tickers: IMAX, RLD, RGC

    It has now been over 3 years since the winter blockbuster Avatar began its record-smashing journey in the box office to become the first film to break $2 billion in sales worldwide.  In that same time frame, IMAX (NYSE: IMAX) has soared over 73% in share price.  It could be said that Avatar began a chain reaction for future movies to implement IMAX and 3D technologies.  With the success of more »

  • Don’t like 3-D Movies, Deal With it, Because They are Here to Stay

    By Ryan Guenette - October 10, 2012 | Tickers: DLB, IMAX, RLD

    "With digital 3D projection, we will be entering a new age of cinema. Audiences will be seeing something which was never technically possible before the age of digital cinema - a stunning visual experience which `turbocharges` the viewing of the biggest, must-see movies. The biggest action, visual effects and fantasy movies will soon be shot in 3D. And all-CG animated films can easily be converted to 3D, without additional cost if more »

    "Did you ever wonder why we are always like...wearing gloves?" - An Extremely Goofy Movie

    Well, did you ever wonder why cartoon characters are always...like...wearing gloves?  Surely the animators couldn't possibly think it to be a good reflection of reality.  Really, who wears gloves at all?  Besides a butler and perhaps the Queen, no one wears white gloves.  Yet Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, and even the Super more »

  • Everyone Loves Explosions! (Profits, Too)

    By T. M. Loyd - October 2, 2012 | Tickers: AMZN, DLB, IMAX, RLD

    It's our tendency to always want bigger, better, more exciting experiences, and film has sought to deliver, decade after decade. The latest sweeping, truly cinematic films like The Dark Knight Rises have used IMAX' (NYSE: IMAX) proprietary technology to accomplish their impressive and overwhelming cinematography. Director Christopher Nolan's express disinterest in 3D for his trilogy, even as the technology saw increasing use across the industry and internationally, has more »

  • Building to a Cl-IMAX

    By Chad Henage - August 23, 2012 | Tickers: CNK, IMAX, RLD, RGC

    While IMAX (NYSE: IMAX) has to rely on blockbuster movies to really move earnings, the company showed in its recent earnings report what it can do when a few blockbusters are released at once. IMAX needs blockbusters like The Hunger Games and The Amazing Spiderman to really perform well. This is not an ideal setup as I like to see more consistent business that doesn't rely on studios, the company is performing well and the larger the IMAX network grows, the better the numbers should get. Let's take a look at what's going on with this premium theatre concept and figure out what investors can expect in the future.

  • I Have A Way To IMAX Out Your Performance

    By Chad Henage - March 30, 2012 | Tickers: IMAX, RLD

    Knowing that IMAX needs big blockbuster movies to thrive, how can you tell when to buy and when to sell the stock? There are two primary factors I look at, including the movie release schedule for the upcoming year, and the rate of IMAX international expansion. While earnings and cash flow are important, to be a rewarding investment IMAX needs to have big movies to draw the crowds. The company also needs to be able to continue expanding internationally, where they make more money.
