    DWA vs MVL valuation, DIS paid $4 billion

    For 2009, Marvel reported net sales of $676.2, and DIS bought them for $4 Billion, or approximately 5.9 times sales.

    So if DWA has $700 million in sales, and we apply the same metric, we get a valuation over $4 Billion.

    Not saying everything is equivalent, but we do have the same type of annuity, intellectual property company. This seemes cheap to me. I've been watching since about $34 and had to buy today.

    Good fortune to all

    • Bingo! DWA is more profitable as well because it does not publish comic books which is a good but not great business.

      I thought this would run by now but am content to hold, add and wait.

      • Yup, I will do the same. Plan to add and trade as opportunities present. I was a MVL and DIS holder at the time of the acquisition, and did very well. Still a very LONG term DIS holder, and LOVE the IP based companies like this. 100 years from now they will be making money on Shrek, the same way DIS does with Mickey and Donald, Goofy, Snow White etc., etc.

        Good Fortune!!
