It has a strong position but in an industry that is in a secular decline. In the US we are seeing the same. The box office is not growing so they need to increase the ancillary revenues. He likes the strategy of the rec room and increase sales in liquor and pop corn. Still not enough for him to be a sleep well at night stock. (Analysts’ price target is $31.05)

He owned in the past. He got stopped out. Yield is 7%. 1700 screens and 165 theaters. They don't have control over the film slate but they do have control on the 70 million people that come every year and diversifying the offering and they are doing that with the rec rooms and so forth. People are staying at hoe and watching Netflix. A tough one.

A past pick that he has owned and sold over the years. They're doing a good job with the Rec Room and golfing. It depends on the quality of the films. Great managers and pays a 6.7% dividend. NFL Sunday has potential.

Sold out. Under a lot of pressure with the box office environment. Facing secular headwinds. Tried to diversify, but problem is trying to find the next growth vehicle. Well run, disciplined management. But he's not looking at it.

They are diversifying away from movies through the Rec Room and launching more. They have to invest money in building this operation, so it'll take a few years before the Rec Room adds to the revenue stream. This will make Cineplex an all-around entertainment centre, not just movies. They're also moving into e-gaming. All this takes time to add to revenues and requires some debt now. The stock in 2017 came off because of weak movie releases and the general overhang in this sector is Netflix. But good movies will sell movie tickets.

Are the Rec Rooms really profitable? Their costs seems high, according to their reports. CGX is competing with streaming companies--not only Netflix, but Disney and others. But they have done a great job increasing their revenue in areas of food. Many people have big TV screens, too, which is another problem. CGX has been creative in bringing opera, live hockey and gaming to its cinemas.

He is looking at CGX-T as it has a fat dividend yield and the stock has come way off. It has been very well managed over the years. If they are successful on their games room they will do well. There could be an uptick in movie attendance over the next year. The only issue is that CGX's debt is constantly expanding. (Analysts’ price target is $31.00)

It's been a disaster for three years, but their multiple is slightly less than its U.S. peers and has a better balance sheet and further ahead in diversifying away from movie-going. It has one of the best management teams in Canada, but there's a misconception that movie-going is dead. That's incorrect. The dividend is safe. They've raised ticket prices and popcorn. The dividend is safe, because they're spending cash on growth projects. Their Rec Room has been doing very well, but be patient with Cineplex with a 2-3 time horizon.

It's been a rollercoaster, killed in Q4. but he's expected a big year in the cinemas in Q2 and Q3 with a lot of box office money to be made. Also, the Rec Rooms and selling wine and beer in all theatres are good diversifiers. CGX competes with home video streaming, though. CGX is priced at a big discount to its profits in Q2 and Q3 and to its American peers. This is a contrarian play on move-going.

They're up against streaming like Apple TV (announced today) and held hostage to the big movies they release--recent films have disappointed at the box office. Cineplex has diversified into the Rec Room. He has owned this. The 7.25% yield is sustainable and good. It's well-run, but in a changing industry and isn't sure they can keep up with changes. CGX is fairly valued now.

He's owned this from time to time, but CGX is frustrating. It plays the movie pipeline, hits or misses, the stock rises or falls. A good dividend player, but there are better dividend stocks.

Growth rates have come down. It is a box office name. They have diversified but BO is still 75% of their revenues. in the end they are modeling 11% earnings growth. Trading at 19 times 2019 earnings. Dividend is safe-ish.

(A Top Pick Feb 20/18, Down 11%) Disappointed. He got stopped out last November. He's more interested in the experience factor: Rec Room and Top Golf. If they accelerate both those, this could be a good player.

You own it for the dividend, but it is paying out everything they make right now. They have great management. He would buy for the dividend but he does to expect a full recovery.

Excellent management team – they have done all the right things. It got expensive and then the stock came down. The box-office has been very stable for decades. They added a lot of services. Now is a time to buy it. The game centers are where the growth will come from. It is at a neutral valuation and he does not see a lot of downside from here. (Analysts’ price target is $33.00)
