Is IMAX Among the Best Stocks to Invest in Now?

Iron Man 3 is a huge hit everywhere, especially in China, where IMAX (NYSE: IMAX  ) booked $1.8 million in gross receipts -- a new record -- as Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS  ) set a high watermark of its own.

If you're wondering if that makes IMAX one of the best stocks to invest in now, you aren't alone, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova. More than 1,600 Fools have rated the stock in our CAPS investor intelligence database, giving it four out of five stars.

They've good reason to be confident. Even as 3-D too often falls flat, audiences have taken to the widescreen IMAX format and the additional footage that often comes with it. For Iron Man 3, the company collected a record-breaking $28.6 million at the gate during this past weekend's U.S. opening and $39.3 million since its international debut. The best part? It's only May. IMAX could be well on its way to the biggest summer movie season in its history, Tim says.

    Hi Tim

    I agree that Imax is one of the best growth stocks to have & the best is yet to come in the next few years with release of sequeals like Avatar2 & 3. Hopefully IMAX will be able to accelerate the rate of install of their backlog,which at present stands in the order of 3 years.More screens more profits!

    IMAX has been in my portfolio for over 5 years-got in @$6.25/share & should be able to be over $50/share in 1/2 years.

    Cheers
