  • Movie Theaters and Hotels for an Uncertain Future

    By Eric Novinson - June 27, 2013 | Tickers: MAR, RGC, MCS

    The Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS) offers a decent dividend payout and a resilient business model. This company owns both hotels and movie theaters, so it benefits from diversification. Marcus has a limited geographic footprint, with many of its properties in the Midwest, so it has room to expand. The company has also invested in modern theater technology, such as 3D-capable screens. Marcus could be a better long term pick than more »

    By Adam Levy - June 25, 2013 | Tickers: RGC, SNE, DIS

    If you thought video piracy was a big issue in America, it’s even more rampant abroad. The phrase “Chinese bootleg” isn’t even the half of it.

  • 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 »

    By Anh HOANG - June 10, 2013 | Tickers: MDP, RGC, SON

    In a previous article, I pointed out three stocks in the consumer-cyclical sector: Darden Restaurants, Hasbro and Gannett. Those three stocks satisfy several important but simple investment characteristics for long-term income investors: 1.) uninterrupted dividends for the past 10 years; 2.) dividend yield is higher than 3%; 3.) EBITDA multiple is less than 10.

    In this article, three more stocks with similar characteristics will be discussed. They are Sonoco Products 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 »

    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.

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.

  • Regarding the Risks of Being Regal

    By Brian Hill - April 23, 2013 | Tickers: NFLX, RGC, TWX

    “You Ought to be in Pictures” was a popular song in the 1930’s and 40’s about the excitement and glamour of being on the performing side of the film business. Oddly, there doesn’t seem to be a complementary romantic song about investing in the film business, probably because angel investors have from time to time lost pots of money backing films that flopped. Fortunately, more risk averse 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 »
