Re: Rasulo Resigns

W.D., what do you think Rasulo will do post-Disney? Will he go to DreamWorks Animation, Netflix, Amazon? I was thinking maybe he might open his own production company.

Re: Drudge: Tomorrowland Bust

W.D. was just talking about one movie and his comment that you take out of context is whether or not it will make money or not standalone. We know W.D. as much as anyone is happy with the studios performance. And even in regards to Tomorrowland he [more]

Drudge: Tomorrowland Bust

It's hard to imagine being #1 at the box office and being listed as a bust. But BoxOfficeGuru.com did a nice job putting deminsions to the story that made sense:

Ant-Man Preview

My grandson saw the Ant-Man preview for the first time. When asked if he wanted to see it, here is what he said: "It's a Marvel movie. It will be awesome." He also noted that it looked funny. He felt the same way about the Pixar name when [more]

Grandson on Tomorrowland

We made the 1:45 PM showing of Tomorrowland on Friday. There were 12 people in our 200 seat theater. Eleven were 40 or older! That was not a good indication how the movie was being received nationally. [more]

So for many reasons the answer to the question: “will the commodity price rally continue?” is particularly important at this juncture. Our view is that it will prove very tough to make further significant gains in commodity prices from here unless [more]

I wish. That would be the best of all worlds. I did a quick search on the NVE site and on Google. Neither links EMP-proof and NVE's products or anyone else's.

Re: Copper, lead, zinc rally.

One more thought on zinc. Zinc is usually a byproduct of silver mining. If you'd like to try a turnaround story that has silver, gold, zinc and lead, take a look at Hecla Mining. When lead and zinc both head north of $1.00 a pound, Hecla's byproducts [more]

Re: Is ESPN the riskiest part of the Disney Empire?

I don't feel confident in the same way about ESPN. Here Disney does not really own the content it just kind of leases it (from the NFL , NCAA or whoever).
