Shares of entertainment technology company, Imax Corp. (Nasdaq: IMAX) rose after positive comments from Merriman Curhan Ford analyst, Eric Wold.

Wold reiterated his “Buy” rating and increased his Q2 estimates for Imax, stating that the “Transformers” movie generated about $18.3 million in its first five days playing on the company’s large screens. Wold initially expected Imax’s Q2 box office results to total $59 million, but raised his estimate to $75 million due largely to the success of “Transformers.”

“In addition, the movie could help drive upside to 3Q box office expectations,” he said.

Wold now believes Imax will report Q2 earnings of 4 cents per share on revenue of $38.2 million, compared with his earlier estimate of EPS of a penny on revenue of $35.7 million.

Shares of Imax Corp. are up almost 8 percent since January.

About Penny Stocks

The term "penny stocks," also known as micro-cap equities, micro caps, small caps, pink sheets, refers to shares in a company that trades for less than $5.00. Most penny stocks trade on the OTCBB market and the pink sheet electronic quotation service. Penny Stocks can be very volatile and can see gains as much as 500% in a day. Volatility in penny stocks is also dangerous because penny stocks can come down as quickly as they go up. If you trade penny stocks based on stock picks, make sure to always do your due diligence on the companies you're considering, use stop loss orders, and book your profits when you are in a position to do so.
