    Disney should get to $80.00 by 1/1/14

    DIS is a better bet than its competitors to reach 80.00. I say sell at 80.00 because then it will dip to 70.00. Buy again at 70.00 at take the ride to 100.00.

    • I'm thinking more like 100. Who cares about value in the market of the greater fool?

    • They can get there if they increase their miserly dividend, and make it quarterly like every other blue chip

      Sentiment: Hold

      • Good Morning Jerry$$$..........a couple of quick facts for you: Disney has always been a "penny wise" company (some would go as far as to say penny "pinching"). They used to pay their dividend quarterly but stopped some years ago because the postage was too expensive.

        Disney has always "micromanaged" themselves meaning: each division is thought of as a "separate company" within the larger company. Any way they can reduce costs, they will do it.

        The stock of Disney has two distinct types of owners: institutions which own the bulk of the stock and then there is the "little guy". These are usually people who own less than 100 shares, buy the stock for their kids or grandchildren. Disney just stopped issuing their corporate stock certificate because...........(take a guess) so this demographic is their justification (which I personally think is silly).

        Lastly, expect the dividend to be increased from 75 to 90 cents. I agree with your thought about it being miserly. I would like to see the dividend at $1.80 but take your pick: A bigger dividend or a bigger stock price?
