Is IMAX Among the Best Stocks to Invest in Now?

Iron Man 3 is a huge hit everywhere, especially in China, where IMAX booked $1.8 million in gross receipts -- a new record -- as Walt Disney 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.
