Ever since I saw the first Saw movie I feel in love with Lionsgate's work. They keep coming out with amazing films that some would consider more "indie," they keep drawing in big actors, and keep landing major contracts for blockbuster hits such as The Hunger Games.

Here’s a list of questions that will make your mind slightly confused:

“What is the colour of a mirror?”

“If you enjoy wasting time, is that time really wasted?”

“If anything is possible, is it possible for anything to be impossible?”

“If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?”

“If you try to fail and succeed, then which have you done?”

“Why is ‘abbreviated’ such a long word?”

“Why is a boxing ring square?”

“Why is it that rain drops but snow falls?”

“Why is it that when you’re driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?”

“Why is the third hand on the watch called second hand?”

“Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?”

“Why is the word dictionary in the dictionary?”

“Why isn’t there mouse-flavoured cat food?”

“Why do you need a driver’s license to buy alcohol when you can’t drink and drive?”

Today I opened a position in Lions Gate Entertainment (it’s near an all-time high, why not?). Lions Gate is a relatively small rising star in the movie/television production and programming field, with hidden gems (low-cost, high-revenue projects) including the Saw franchise and, most recently, the ongoing Hunger Games franchise. Lions Gate has substantial debt and some irregular cash flow production, but the company has proven its ability to manage debt over the past several years while increasing margins.

So long as the company manages to produce sufficient cash flow and allocate incoming cash to paying down its debt levels, I see a bright long-term future for the business. Over the past year the company has reduced its debt from $1.12 billion to $917.07 million (that’s a $200 million decrease in debt in one year).

Lions Gate has shown its ability to adapt to an evolving market for movies and television programming: namely, taking advantage of growing online distribution through avenues such as Netflix with “Orange is the New Black.” Gary Bourgeault, in an article for the Fool, outlines why this is especially beneficial for Lions Gate:

"What's also important to the growth of the company is the partnerships it has engaged in with streaming sites such as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu. Netflix and Amazon are particularly important to the international growth of Lionsgate, according to CEO John Feltheimer:

'This is a portion of the market that will continue to grow significantly in the years ahead because of the demand for original content from Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and other streaming companies.'"

http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/10/20/what-investors-are-missing-with-lionsgate.aspx

Producing online content, in other words, opens Lions Gate to an expanding online and international market. Lions Gate is a relatively new and small player in the realm of movie/television production, but the company is demonstrably innovative and adapting to a growing online and international market. Lion Gate’s CEO, Jon Feltheimer, has been with the company since 2005 and owns 2.1 million shares of common stock, making him the largest direct individual holder of the company’s common stock.

Lions Gate has its share of risks; any company with substantial debt will be vulnerable financially. However, Lions Gate is getting its financial house in order while continuing to innovate with an expanding product line and partnerships with Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, which expose the company to an expanding online and international customer base.

While Lions Gate is close to an all-time high today (what stock isn’t?), in the ballpark of $36.30, I felt compelled enough to open a position in the stock today. An innovative and expanding product line, improving financial situation, and experienced and involved management team all contribute to my confidence in the business as a new long-term shareholder.

Virtuous cycle of low-budget horror flicks producing big profits for the studio, which are then reinvested to bring audiences high-potential franchises (i.e., The Hunger Games) and quality TV (i.e., Mad Men, Orange Is the New Black, etc.)

Stock prices assumes it's recent string of hits will not only continue, but increase. More likely to revert to the mean.

Small player with good growth plan. Products are tied to discretionary spending which is coming back in the next couple of years.
