Take a look at GNUS. Was trading at .28 cents a bit over a month ago...just hit $3.60! They are launching a new digital Kartoon Channel across the major platforms on June 15th.

CEO Andy Heyward is the producer of Inspector Gadget along with numerous cartoon series. He is the who's who when it comes to kids animation.

Isn't it too late now that it already doubled in the past week /10 days?
Do you assume that it is going to keep climbing? why?

I bought some, so now your best bet is to short it. Just saying... I'm the worst thing that can happen to a stock's value.

CEO owns a ton of stock he has repurchased over the past two years much of it above $7 per share.

The launch of the Kartoon Network is June 15. Expect a decent ride up until at least then....or not?

Dont bet the kids college on it but it has been as low .05 cents with dismal outlook for the past couple of years.

With the new funding and the Allstar team of animators and kids media professionals on board the outlook has turned much more positive.

Heyward sold his last portfolio of kids programming to Cookie Jar for over $80 million. He is in his 70's but still has the respect of the industry when it comes to kids animation. He is also one heck of a deal maker.

This is highly speculative, the company doesn't hold much in assets so its valuation sucks. The fact that Heyward has repurchased so much of the stock shows he is committed to seeing this through to whatever end that may be.

Been watching this for a couple of years with a small amount into it. The way the stock was issued with warrants to his "buddies" in the beginning, along with a split, it has been "shorted" all the way down to the .05 cents I mentioned in an earlier post.

They were in mortal danger of losing their NASDAQ listing for not being in compliance with price minimums. They just regained their compliance with Nasdaq and were able to issue a 20 million share offering which you see has been gobbled up in the past couple of days!

The announcement of the Kartoon Channel formation on May 6 gave the company a huge shot in the arm. It will be "broadcast" on Apple TV, Amazon Prime, Comcast, Dish, SelectTV, Sling and other online platforms.

Just know that they don't have much in the way of content at the moment so I am not sure how that will play out.

With Heywards history and connections in the biz he should have no problem getting owners of animated content to sign on.

Could this be the next Nick or Cartoon Channel? Possibly, and that is why this is so speculative.

The guy is a hell of a pitchman but he has success under his belt.

Take it for a ride and then get off and maybe take a shot again if it dips.

It was a "start up" formed from another company he owned with his now ex wife just six years ago, so you won't find much good news until recently.

Again, its highly speculative and a fun short term play with a few bucks you can afford to gamble with.

I had a small position in it which, until I added more in the past days, was a total loser! It is having a nice run that I would expect to last until the launch on June 15.

I can hold on for another two weeks, what the hell, there is nothing else to gamble on besides NASCAR right now so why not?

Great advice! As the saying goes "Pigs get slaughtered!"
This is definitely a take the money and run gamble. Up .46 or 11% since the close today

GNUS is bouncing around $4.96 in pre market trading! Should shoot well into the upper $5 today!
