What are Wall Street analysts saying about Imax stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Imax stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "IMAX shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Apart from blockbuster Hollywood titles like Avengers: Endgame, IMAX is also benefiting from Chinese language releases. Notably, IMAX China recently stated that the company collected box office gross of RMB250 million in August from IMAX theaters across Greater China. IMAX noted that this was one of its best monthly performances, driven by blockbuster Hollywood and Chinese language titles including Ne Zha. However, IMAX’s significant exposure to China is a risk. Moreover, higher operating expenses, particularly marketing expenses, are expected to hurt profits in the second half of the year. Moreover, the company faces stiff competition in the out-of-home entertainment industry." (10/1/2019)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We are encouraged by new opportunities in the core business line such as greater flexibility in screen usage (now primarily international, but hopefully extending to domestic markets), reduced screening periods for individual films within a larger number of titles (very few run more than a couple of weeks) and experimentation with reseating options. Attention to the cost structure is also important to profitability. Further, newer initiatives in strengthening brand recognition and reception coupled with continually improving video and audio delivery technology, now including laser, contribute to renewed confidence in IMAX."
