Rumors Hint Pixar Nearing Distribution Deal

Inside Bay Area has an article indicating that Pixar May be nearing a deal with Disney. Steve Jobs, Pixar's Chief Executive indicated to investors that he is "optimistic" when it comes to obtaining a deal with a post-Eisner Disney. This, along with the impending release of "Cars", was enough to nudge Pixar into the next bracket of stock suggestions.

As discussed in an earlier article here, Pixar had trouble obtaining a new distributor for its films. That Disney might reacquire distributorship is both good and bad. Good, since Pixar makes great films and distributing them is pretty helpful to getting them viewed. Bad, because they tried to get someone else, and they are now going back to Disney, who knows they couldn't get a deal elsewhere. Hopefully for the audience, mutual greed will win over pride. -- Terrence Ryan
