The Week in Review/The Week Ahead: The Universal Fund [UNIVX], Episode 22

Posted by: UNIVX (a.k.a UNIVXFund) on Feb 17, 21:33

Finally we're back seeing some sizable gains, and we did it this week without any help from Deadpool.  From Saturday night to Saturday night, we had a 10.7% gain (we're up an additional 4% so far this week).

In addition to the info I posted about in last week's update, we also made some cash last week on the Blumhouse Tilt line-up, including 6 Miranda Drive getting a release date this May.  Not too much more to communicate since most of it was already covered last post, so let's check back in with our monthly increases.

9/10       $10 IPO

10/10     $13.33     33.3% monthly increase

11/10     $21.61     62.1% monthly increase

12/10     $31.11     44.0% monthly increase

1/10       $37.60     20.9% monthly increase

2/10       $44.60     18.6% monthly increase

                             35.8% average monthly increase

                             346% total season-to-date increase

Future projections:

3/10       $60.57

4/10       $82.25

5/10       $111.70

6/10       $151.68

7/10       $205.98

8/10       $279.73

8/31 cashout     $351.89

I'll continue to update this, increasing the accuracy of the projections, after the 10th of each month.  Now let's turn our attention to the next 3 Universal properties.


The Coldest City

An adaptation of Antony Johnston's graphic novel about cold war spies in the 80's, starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, and John Goodman.  It'll be David Leitch's directorial debut since he wasn't credited for John Wick, and the script is from Kurt Johnstad, who previously adapted 300 and wrote Act of Valor.  Filming is currently underway, with a likely late 2016 release.  The stock sits at $10.56 right now and is currently on a steady in-production downslide.  John Wick was a modest success in theatres, and took in $39 before it delisted on HSX.  It's not Deadpool money, but going in now will likely at least triple your money over the next year, assuming all goes to plan and City gets a wide release.


Colossus: The Forbin Project

Originally intended for Ron Howard and Will Smith, this one IPO'd over 5 years ago and hasn't received any news in almost 3 years.  While IMDB still lists the project as in development, it no longer links Howard or Smith.  Not too much money to be made shorting this one at $1.56, but it almost seems an inevitability that it will eventually cash out.  At least a lot more likely than the project ever moving forward in the forseeable future.


The Legend of Conan

This one IPO'd in 2013, and most recently received a non-specific production start date last June, with nothing since.  Considering the relative failure of the most recent Terminator movie and the subsequent waffling of the studio considering parts two and three (or five and six, depending on how you want to number), I think an additional re-launch of another, older Schwarzenegger franchise is probably off the table.  Nothing is ever certain, but shorting this one at its current $6.69 will probably give you a slow but steady stream of profit until it eventually delists.


And that wraps another week.  Race hits theatres wide this Friday.
