    Investors are misinterpreting positive benefit of $10 MoviePass on cinemas

    MoviePass, a movie theater subscription service, on Tuesday unveiled plans to lower the cost of its subscription to $10 a month from $30-and-up. Shares of AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. , which have already been beaten up recently, fell as much as 5.8% during the day. It was followed down by shares of Imax Corp. , which fell 2.4%, Regal Entertainment Group's 1.9% drop, Marcus Corp.'s 1.5% fall, while Cinemark Holdings fell as much as 1%. MoviePass allows members to see a movie a day for just $10 a month. B. Riley analyst Eric Wold wrote in a note to investors that he believed investors were misinterpreting the MoviePass news as a negative for the box office and film exhibitors. "The key thing to keep in mind is that MoviePass cannot do this in a bubble -- they needed the approval of both studios and exhibitors, who would not sign off on anything that was detrimental to their financial outlook," Wold wrote. "Studios and exhibitors are not taking a discount under the MoviePass model. We understand that MoviePass is absorbing the ticket discount and hoping to make up the discount through monetizing the data and the breakage." Wold said this is a positive for the cinema group as well as box office and concession results, though he believes it will be a small benefit. Shares of AMC have declined nearly 61% in the year to date, while Imax shares are down nearly 41%, Regal Entertainment and Marcus Corp shares are both down almost 19% and shares of Cinemark are down 6%.

    Cinema stocks continue to suffer as AMC shares fall nearly 5%

    Shares of cinema chain AMC Entertainment Holding Inc. were down as much as 4.8% during intraday trade on Thursday. The stock's move led a selloff in the cinema group, with Regal Entertainment Group , Cinemark Holdings Inc. , Marcus Corp. and Imax Corp. were all down nearly 2%. There was no news to point to for the share moves, but cinema stocks, and AMC in particular, have had a rough go of it recently as poor box office returns have dominated headlines, dragging down quarterly earnings and threats of shrinking theatrical windows and digital disruption continue to loom. Earlier this week, Walt Disney Co. , which has for a long time steered clear of certain streaming shifts, said it plans to launch its own standalone streaming service for its content in 2019 and end its current licensing deal with Netflix Inc. . "The industry is facing several issues, which is causing people to question the cyclical vs. structural issues for the industry," wrote MKM analyst Eric Handler in an email. Also this week AMC said it was selling its 50% ownership stake in Oscar-winning production studio Open Road Films, which it co-owned with Regal Entertainment. The sale was part of the theater chain's plan to monetize some of its assets and cut cost to combat box office volatility. Shares of AMC have declined more than 56% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 index is up nearly 10%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Shares of AMC Entertainment Holding Inc. fell more than 19% late Tuesday after the movie-theater chain announced cost reductions and said it expects to swing to a loss in the second quarter. AMC saw second-quarter revenue between $1.200 billion and $1.204 billion, and a net loss between $178.5 million and $174.5 million, or between $1.36 and $1.34 a share, versus gains of 24 cents a share in the year-ago period.

    AMC shares bounce following tough week of losses

    Shares of theater operator AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. were up 5% intraday on Thursday. AMC stock has been beaten up recently after Barclays downgraded the stock on Wednesday following a Wall Street Journal report earlier in the week saying Chinese regulators had warned that funding the company received from parent company Dalian Wanda Group violated government capital rules. AMC has since denied receiving funding for acquisitions. As this has unfolded, AMC and other cinema stocks have also been beaten up due to poor box office performance and the threat of collapsing theatrical windows. B. Riley analyst Eric Wold said AMC's stock paring losses points to some rational thoughts coming back to AMC investors. "We believe that some of the sell-side concerns around [premium video on demand] have been stretch concerns without a basis in reality around both what is best for the industry or, more importantly, catering to what consumers actually desire," Wold said in an email. "As for the Wanda situation, once AMC made it clear that Wanda has not been involved in the company's financing or acquisition activity, the issues around Wanda should be centralized to Wanda and have no impact on AMC." Shares of AMC have declined more than 38% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 index is up nearly 11%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
