Avatar Drives IMAX Stock

January 11, 2010 at 11:59 am  ·  Category: Culture and Current Events, Stocks

Last Monday, IMAX (IMAX) announced their first $100 million box office quarter for the 4th quarter, driven by $54 million from Avatar.  In the past week, IMAX outfitted theaters did about 25% of Avatar’s domestic box office with just 2% of the movie’s screens.

The company still hasn’t proven it can make much money, with only $1 million in earnings through the first 9 months of 2009 – though the fourth quarter obviously looks to be strong.  That for a stock with an $850 million market cap.

Perhaps they are turning a corner.  But the stock might already reflect that.
