Looks like we locked in 87 for the day.
Next test is 87.30. We need a 5 min block to close above that.

Sentiment: Strong Buy
I think DIS is headed for 120 in the next two years.
I'd suggest hanging on for the ride.
Well, if it was 88 in the aftermarket yesterday, its not today. It's down nearly 50 cents
Don't really know why - maybe the pulling of the Time Warner offer - it really shouldn't matter, but if TW was worth so much, maybe some thought (accurately) that Disney was worth more, and the pulling of the offer lowered the bar.
Maybe a little disappointment on ESPN (although I would say that Fox's pulling its offer means that it is still at a disadvantage in competing with espn). And really, how much more can espn make? - Disney is still firing on all engines, and it has much to move with the movies (Avengers 2 and Star Wars) in the 18 months, and it also has Shanghai Disney opening which will boost the parks segment.
You are an idiot. The other 40% is important. 5-10% I can understand that comment but 40% just proves that you don't know JACK!
While I like Disney, the upside seems capped 10-20% within the next year. Where-as Jakks Pacific (JAKK) who is selling the Frozen merchandise is shorted 60-70% right now and seems very undervalued. With the great results from Disney, the holiday season near, and a potential sequel in the works (plus Disney is essentially franchising the movie), JAKK has a long way to run up in my opinion. Plus they are making the toys for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which comes to the big screen very soon. Again, I like Disney, just saying if you want to play other angles with Frozen, appears JAKK is one of them.
Avengers 2 and 3 (with Guardians of The G. Included) , Ironman 4, CaptainAmerica 3, Thor 3 and Guardians 2, Star Wars, etc. Several 2-3 billion $$ movies and franchises in this group. Antman and one of my favorites, Doctor Strange, already have dates. MARVEL WILL RULE THE BOX OFFICE AND DISNEY WITH THEM. One day DC will bow to Marvel and the Justice League will duke it out with The Avengers.
There is potential in the prospect. Perhaps it would be more seriously considered if the share price stagnates.
Impact of the movie will not be know foe another six to 12 weeks.
There is also 3D movie of the same.

Indian and China means nearly half the world population.
In foreign language in Mexico Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) will be in late August and early September 2014
this movie will easily take in $1.5 billion, and 2 billion is possible.
but the real news is Guardians of the Galaxy. After taking in over $94 million in is first weekend, a shade under what Captain America did in its first weekend, it did over $11.5 on Monday which is about $5 million more than Captain America did on its first Monday - this bodes well for Guardians - it could easily beat Captain America's present nearly $260 million, and maybe press $300 million - this is really, really quite a haul. Disney was hoping for $65 million in its first weekend, and maybe a total domestic $200 million.
It may be that the overseas haul won't be so wonderful, as it is behind Captain America on an overseas basis. But I hope (I am an optimist) that this may catch fire overseas too.
Disney's earnings could be closer to $5 for the year, rather than the predicted $4 - this supports a price over 90 in the next few months, and I still think you will see over 120 within 18 months.
Good to see you back, ghetto, to resume your years long record of being consistently dead wrong on DIS. Keep on shorting (btw, debt is not terribly high and all refinanced at amazingly low rates).
