  • IMAX

    IMAX (NYSE: IMAX) is trailing behind its five-week high of $29.62 closing Wednesday at $29.21.

    This price gives the company a market cap of 1.96 billion.

    The 50-day moving average is $27.14 and 200–day moving average is $26.56. With a fairly new business model implemented over the past 10 years, IMAX has been strategically lowering a lot of costs to its business.
