Wold commented:

“We are revisiting IMAX Corporation (IMAX) in order to highlight, what we believe to be, a significant near-term positive inflection for both the investment thesis and shares heading into 2019—we recommend that investors continue to build positions in IMAX ahead of that becoming more widely understood. Although we made a push around IMAX in our 9/10 note, we came away from a recent meeting with management and a review of final 3Q18 box office data increasingly positive around underlying improvements with China box office trends, the benefits of an evolving strategy for new system installs in China as well as the elimination of lingering margin headwinds from shuttered business initiatives.”
