Also for some reason analysts are projecting .87 EPS for 3Q despite summer being prime time for the theme parks and Guardians coming out in August and expanding to Japan in early September. Strange...
Big Hero 6 is a big budget movie for them that I am sure they expect to do big numbers WW (at least 500M). Also even though the budget is small (relatively) for Into the Woods because it's a musical, I think with that cast it could do big numbers as well.
Yeah....I'm SURE Disney insiders will want to unload their stock before those awful Avengers and Star Wars movie come out next year. They'll be lucky to gross 50 cents. I agree the stock will pull back into the $80s before going much higher, but to think insider trading will play any part in that move is ridiculous..
Although I believe you will see 120 in the next 18 months, and I believe the quarter and year end results will provide a nice boost, I think you might be in a little holding pattern for awhile (like 85 - 95). Disney doesn't have real blockbuster movies for a few more months, at least until March when Cinderella comes out (followed by Avengers 2, Tomorrow Land, a couple of Pixar movies, and then by Star Wars). And the comps will be hard to beat as Disney had Frozen last year in November.
I'm not saying the Disney isn't a wonderful stock, nor is it going to be at this level for more than 6 months, but it doesn't have any real catalysts that will lead it to breakout. But I've been wrong many times before. And I'm not selling.
DEQI adds poker to its growing list of gaming titles Latest purchase is Actua Poker and the company has already begun UIS distribution
Aw. I meant to hit the down thumb. Solid company and will hit $100+...some day. Like all stock, it won't be a straight up ride but this company is a Long hold into retirement and buy on big dips/market downturn.
DEQI targets actual money players with its newly acquired poker game, Actua Poker. The new title boosts the company’s growth potential as management moves to deliver on its business plan
I agree. But, if you've been comparing the Guardians numbers with Captain America, this weekend was the first time (since the first weekend) that the daily figures (on a weekend basis) fell behind Captain America - only about $1 million, and these are preliminary figures, but I was hoping that the domestic would break $300 million - but these figures are still stellar.
There seems to be some real growth on the overseas figures - after a slow start, they seem to be doing very nicely.
I think that Disney really really knows what they are doing. Someone asked when is Disney breaking 90 = maybe today.
The race baiters just love it when something happens to a black man or woman. They show up in force & promote violence. Then the looting begins.
And once again the naysayers thought it would tank. Marvel is gold, and 2015 is going TO BE HUGE. Avengers 2 will break all box office records. Star Wars will do a close second. And so much more just in movies, this company is growing and growing.
Probably this week.
But there has been the smallest of #$%$ in the armor this weekend. Guardians has been consistently beating Captain America's daily numbers (after just missing the first weekend), at least domestically (overseas might be a different matter, but this remains to be seen). This weekend it may be about $1 million less than the comparable weekend. If it had held up this weekend, it could have looked like a $300 million winner - now it may have a tough time beating $275 m - which is still about $100 more than Disney had hoped for.
On the other hand, the 100 foot journey seems to be very nicely, although this is not a big budget item.
Disney will still be 120 in 18 months
That's what I am doing!! Have owned the stock for 30 years!! Thanks to splits my original 100 shares are now 4800 shares. Have already set up trust so that each of my 4 daughters will get 1200 shares upon my passing... Double the shares if Disney does another split!!
Disney closed above $87 back on July 9th. It took over a month for it to close above $88, despite flirting with it repeatedly. It has taken less than a day for the stock to power above $89....I'm looking for the stock to climb steadily until the RSI breaks 70 (it's at 64+ right now), before retrenching a bit. But from there, the next stop will be $100+. And it will get there easily by the end of the year.
