    Cramer Says DIS Going to $100

    I remember he was bashing the stock when it was around $65 now he's pounding the table that it's going to $100. Glad to see that Mr. Cramer has finally come around.

    Sentiment: Buy

    • Disney has 4 of the biggest movies the past 12 months, and will have the two biggest movies next year. And it won't even be close. In addition to the $3 billion plus Avengers and Star Wars will make next year in ticket sales, the real goldmine will be in the ancillary markets. I worked at Disney Licensing back in the 90's, and my friends who are still there say they have never seen the volume/$ amount of licenses being sold for Star Wars and Avengers merchandise. My advice is simple. Buy $100 2016 LEAPS. Stock will hit $100 by the end of the year and $125 by the end of next year.

    • I agree it a great company but it was also great a couple years ago at $35 a share. Shouldn;t these experts be out in front of these stocks.

    • All I know is that another article keeps on coming out saying that Disney, as good as a stock as it is, is just too highly priced, and that you should only buy on a dip (now into the 70's),

      I keep on saying, keep on coming out with these articles, because Disney then proceeds to hit new highs.

      Thank goodness I didn't sell at 64, planning to buy back at 55, because it never saw 63.

      And thank goodness Baseball decided not to pursue Iger as its next Commissioner - because Iger is a very steady hand, and he will see it hit the 100's before he leaves (I think at least 120 by 2016).

      • Everyone has been calling for a pullback into the $60's or $70's for a long time now. I got burned listening the analysts on DIS before when I owned it at $29. I sold at $35 thinking it would pull back to around $25 and I could get back in. Well that was obviously a huge mistake but I learned a very good lesson in the process. Never sell great companies! If anything you can trade around your core position but with DIS I prefer to let this one sit for decades and then pass the shares onto my kids one day. Nothing like telling them they own a piece of the Marvel, Frozen and Star Wars franchises.

        Sentiment: Hold

    • Cramer says 'DIS is going to 100'.

      Everybody knows that.

      I say DIS is going to 120 in 2 years and that this year's annual dividend will be 1.00 even.

      • I agree. When Disney comes out with Avengers 2, and it does at least $250 million the first weekend, and is likely to see $2 billion worldwide, and peoples realize that Star Wars is only 7 months away, it will move steadily towards that.

        I believe they held back the dividend last year (I think it went from 75 to 85) because they didn't want it to go over 1.00 for the next year - they prefer to buy back stock, rather than dividends.

        As to our other friend who sold at 35 to buy back in the 20's, I have a friend who bought on a dip into the high 20's, sold at about 35/36, and I told him to buy back when it fell to 33 - he did buy it back, but only when it was in the low 60's. I thought of selling in the mid 60's, to buy it back when it dipped into the 50's, and, guess what, it never dipped - good thing I just held on.

    • When will it break 90?

      • 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
