Bottom line

While it’s possible to turn a profit investing in movie stocks, keep in mind that — like any investment — movie stocks are not immune to risk.

And if you’re new to investing, or if it’s been awhile since you’ve taken a critical look at your investing accounts, compare brokers to make sure you’re getting the best features in your trading account.
