Not only have the geeks invaded the earth, they're clearly having their way with the HSX this morning as what seems like a large percentage of stocks are sci-fi/fantasy related.
On the leader board the highest mover is When Worlds Collide, the sci-fi remake which
hack director Stephen Sommers was going to helm but which now will reportedly be led by Steven Spielberg. It's obviously that news that has shares up five points to $36.25 on volume of over seven million shares. Amazing what the news of an Academy Award winning director whose films rarely loose money coming aboard will do to a share's price.
Rounding out the geek theme is today's IPO of the Day: Voltron. That's right, the big screen version of the 80's cartoon (and does anyone else remember the sticker books you could buy at stores like 7-11 and White Hen?) debuts today and is already down a point and a half.
