It had a nice pull back on earnings disappointment. It more has to do with charting trend. Buy low and sell high concept.

These parks are great and are entrenched with moats that no really new parks such as those managed by Disney ~ Six flags ~ and Fun ~ Cedar Fair will be built anytime soon if ever...

SIx has gone thru bankruptcy and has done rather well..................................................

Expect a larger yield than treasuries and what the bank gives.................... LMAO/......................

WHy not give SIx a try................................................

Six Flags would have to increase their yearly EPS three-fold to justify the current trading price of $45 per share. Yes, I know that they just increased their dividend to .60 per quarter giving a yield of 5%. Yes, there are rumors that Six Flags may not have to pay taxes for the next decade/

However, even with this dividend (which I question whether they can even afford to pay) and the tax break, the stock is still far over-valued in my opinion. Unless there is some major - I mean major - increase in profits on short oder the price has to fall from here.

I'm thinking the day after a 4.5% price jump, due to a rosey outlook in the earning call, is a good spot to start my short position (thumbs down).

I've been stalking this stock for a couple of weeks now waiting for a pullback, but I'm going to have to pile in with the green thumb now on the announcement of the dividend increase late yesterday.

This stock looks like it has a lot of potential following the company's exit from bankruptcy in 2010 and all the debt relief they got as a result of that.

TMFDeej has a pretty helpful discussion about the company in his pitch which I'd recommend to others to read.

The Company refinanced their debt in December with a new credit facility and term loan financing and it looks like that new financing package probably relaxed some of their restricted payment covenants on dividends and share buybacks. I have yet to verify that, but that is my impression so far. They announced a $250 million share buy back plan a few weeks ago and now increased their quarterly dividend from 6 cents a share to 60 cents a share, that's a TENFOLD increase!! The current yield stands at about 5% as of this writing.

I'm not ready yet to put up real money into this name, but I'm planning on digging into my research in a big way soon, maybe even tonight or tomorrow.

Based on my cursory first pass at researching this company I can see the potential for the stock to get to $80 or so in about 4 to 5 years time. That was before they cranked up the dividend, though. Now I'm thinking higher yield and compounding potential from reinvested dividends and probably lower terminal value.

This could be a good opportunity, but there are a few things I need to dig into in greater detail. TMFDeej's assertion regarding their long term tax shield is high on my list of diligence items. If that's correct, its a big boost to their cashflow. I'm also very interested in gaining a better understanding of their new financing package and what new flexibility it may have given them.

Management does seem to be making a commitment to treating the shareholders well which is something I always like to see.

I see a lot of potential here, but will remain cautiously optimistic until I complete my analysis.

This amusement park may be no Disney World or Universal Studios, but it has consistently been a market player for more than 40 decades. The company garbles up smaller parks and incorporates them into its franchise. Summer is coming soon and the amusement park season starts with a lot of new rides and attractions and parents itching to unload their kids for a few hours.
