Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc May Win With MoviePass

Something should not sit right with investors when a company hints at blockchain technology getting incorporated into its business model. But when Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc (NASDAQ:HMNY) did such a thing on Jan. 10, it gave the stock a strong lift, at least in pre-market. Helios is not the only company doing this: Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:KODK) did the same thing on January 9. When it unveiled cryptocurrency, its stock rallied from $3 to over $12 a share. To even consider investing in HMNY stock, astute investors must look at Helios’ key product: MoviePass. [ipm_internal_ad_list ipm_ad__post_id_1="1103165" ipm_ad_copy_1="10%20Stocks%20to%20Banish%20From%20Your%20Portfolio%20Forever" ipm_ad_url_1="" /] MoviePass is a potential money-maker for Helios. Consumers who sign up for the service save significant sums of money. And word is spreading fast just how good a deal subscribers get. Over 500,000 signed up to the movie-ticketing service in under a month, giving MoviePass over 1.5 million paid subscribers. Subscribers may buy one movie ticket a day for a flat monthly fee. But MoviePass then pays theaters the full price for a ticket. The obvious question is: How is losing money from each movie-goer sustainable? Unless the company collects more revenue from subscription fees than the cost of movie tickets, MoviePass will not survive for very long. Helios may be borrowing the money-losing gameplay from Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX). The online TV and movie streaming giant started its business by renting out DVDs. It pivoted its business by selling online streaming subscriptions. In that time, subscriptions soared. These days, Netflix may raise monthly subscriptions without its customer defecting. Helios probably has the same ambitions as an early Netflix: Grow the user base in the hundreds of thousands monthly and then worry about revenue later on. MoviePass must work quickly. Already, Cinemark launched Cinemark Movie Club in November at a competitive price. MoviePass may still have the first-mover advantage, building its brand-name awareness ahead of the competition. Having a massive user base will inherently increase the value of MoviePass, not only for the subscription revenue. The app will collect useful user data that the company may then mine. This would let movie theaters pitch more suitable advertising to the movie-goer.  Read Article
