SeaWorld Jumps on Oscar Snub for ‘Blackfish’ Whale Picture

SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. shares rose after “Blackfish,” a documentary critical of the theme-park operator’s treatment of killer whales, didn’t receive an Oscar nomination today.

Shares of the Orlando, Florida-based company, advancing for the sixth straight day, climbed 8.4 percent to $33.59 at the close in New York, the biggest gain since its first day of trading in April.
