Is Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. a Buy?

Fast-growing  production company Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. (NYSE: LGF  ) has made a name for itself by helping to produce such popular titles as The Hunger Games Trilogy and The Twilight Saga as well as AMC Entertainment's award winning show "Mad Men".  Despite the success of these and numerous other titles released by Lions Gate the stock has experienced a modest pullback from an all-time high of just over $35 a share set last fall. The company has and continues to face stiff competition from major Hollywood studios owned by Viacom and Time Warner's Warner Bros. Studios, but has managed to build upon its success since being founded in 1997.

Given the company's proven ability to execute in the unpredictable entertainment industry, might the stock's recent pullback present a buying opportunity for long-term Foolish investors? Motley Fool Consumer Goods Analyst Sean O'Reilly analyzes the important facts surrounding Lions Gate and lets investors know if Lions Gate stock is worth a closer look.
