Is Miley Cyrus' 'Hannah Montana' a Good Investment?

Stocks in this article: BHSNEDISLGFLYV

Miley Cyrus is the 25th sexiest female according to Maxim, a magazine for men published in 16 languages and sold in 75 countries with a circulation of nearly 9 million, and a subsidiary of Biglari Holdings (BH)

Cyrus' first film was the classic fantasy drama Big Fish directed by two-time Academy Award Nominee Tim Burton and released by Sony (SNE) in 2003. Danny Elfman was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Music, Original Score for his work in the film.

At the time, Miley Cyrus was only 11 years old and she played the part of Ruthie. She was credited as Destiny Cyrus. Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert was produced in 2008 with a budget of $7 million and eventually sold $70,642,036.

Hannah Montana: The Movie was produced in 2009 with a budget of $30 million and it was a huge success as it posted $155,545,279 in sales. The last song was produced in 2010 by Touchstone Pictures, a subsidiary of Disney  (DIS) with a tiny budget of $20 million, and it was a comparatively huge success with over $89 million in ticket sales.

So Undercover was released by Lionsgate (LGF) in 2011. LOL was a romantic comedy made with a small budget of $11 million, which I think is a mistake if you already have a film with over $100 million in sales.

If nobody wants to hire you for a $40 million film two years after the success of the last song then you need to invest 49% of the budget in association with another four struggling actors and/or actresses or wait another year. The wrong picture can ruin your film career. I suggest that Miley Cyrus hire Justin Timberlake as his Jerry Maguire. Let him pick the roles for you. He seems to know what he's doing.

A new romantic drama written by Nicholas Sparks, Abby Kohn, Marc Silverstein and/or Jason Katims starring Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth could be a killer combo hard to resist for housewives and teenage girls. A horror film starring Miley Cyrus as the damsel in distress attacked by the crazy meth head Aaron Paul could also work. The Bangerz Tour began on February 14,2014 and ends on October 23, 2014.

So far, 93% of the tickets have been sold for $9,397,119. This tour is ongoing. Her last tour sold over $26 million in tickets with only 21 shows. This time she is performing 78 shows.

If you invest wisely in publicly-traded companies printing tickets like Ticketmaster (LYV), you'll make enough money to attend all the concerts you wish to attend for the rest of your life.
