Abstract: A unilateral weighted shift on a Hilbert space is an operator such that for some orthonormal basis and weight sequence . If we assume , for all , and let for and , then is unitarily equivalent to on the weighted space of formal power series such that . Regarding as multiplication for on the space , it is shown that, if and is analytic in a neighborhood of the unit disk, then either is cyclic for or is contained in a finite-dimensional -invariant subspace. This was shown--by different methods-- for the unweighted shift operator by Douglas, Shields, and Shapiro [**2**]. It is also shown that every finite-dimensional -invariant subspace is of the form
