    The congress shut down the proposal on the movie futures in 2010 , but left the door open for the so called celebstocks , is the use of real money in the cards for the future?? It would be awesome for moneymaking....one could sell Johnny Depp stocks to regular Janes just like that

    Take it as you guys never heard of fantax, that allows you to invest in the revenue of athletes. Looking at the athletes, none that I'd personally invest in or want on a team. Nothing against them, but knowing their game don't see them breaking into the elite upper echelon of the positions they play.

    Wow they had a great idea , how do they make money tho??? Commissions??? They handed 4M to Vernon Davis and his stock right now are exchanged at half of the IPO price...it's a good way to diversify your fantasy or sports betting risks , they should go after backup qbs (brady 2001 and kaepernick 2011) or valuable players looking for money right now and they should move away from football (european soccer and NBA are more secure markets if one has to invest directly in a player) . This even opens up "stock manipulations scenarios" the CB of the St. Louis Rams could buy a bunch of Davis stocks , let him score a couple of TDs and make easy money out of it.....not to mention the fact that a player could easly buy his own stocks to pump up their value....It could be a great moneymaking tool if you are on the right side of tha ball...at the same time you could lost your entire investment if you had Bostick stocks in your portfolio......at the end of the day it's always a bounce of the ball that determines if you make or lose money therefore only high end fantasy football players are the ones that should look into this and be able to make money out of it..they could even become "brokers"...not gonna happen tho..the leagues would declare war to this market and they'll go ask uncle sam for help because it could mine the credibility of their product.

    Celebstocks would be much more stable...unless an actor/musician dies or loses his mind (any reference to Charlie Sheen is not intentional) you would NOT lose half your money overnight...all things considered it's very likely that even an arrest would cause a the stocks to rise

    I don't think it's that awesome for moneymaking. Looks like betting to me not investing.

    How could you ever know for sure what movie will be a success and what movie not?

    Celebstocks sounds like a terrible investment. Like penny stocks.

    But then again, I've been proven wrong many times. I'm not really good at speculating.

    There will be a lot of assasinations because criminals will short the futures.
