    EV/EBIDTA 7.5, l.t.debt/income 2.9, fwd PE 11.8

    EV/EBIDTA 7.5 -- ready for a 33% pop

    long-term debt to TTM net income 2.9 -- great financial shape

    fwd PE 11.8 -- undervalued

    has outperformed the S&P 500 over past 3m, 6m, 1yr, 2yr, and 5yr periods

    as soon as any money comes back into the market, a lot of it is going straight to this great value play on an unparalleled brand and media/merchandise/vacation empire

    • I fine this discussion interest. I sold recently over concerns about gas and the economy - I think DIS will have a weak quarter and will take a hit.

    • dream baby dream.

      why or why do so many people on this board think that disney exists in some universe separate from the rest of the economy?

      theme park attendance is down and operating costs are up.

      year over year film comparisons are down.

      consumer products is a non-player -- keep in mind that theme park merchandise is reported under theme parks.

      media networks have nowhere to grow. one potential upside is a one time advertising revenue bump from the political campaigns.

      buy gold.

        well, maybe because it had 8% yoy earnings growth in the middle of the worst economy since 2002?

      • where r u getting your facts from? This down that down,NOT T DIS is a global co.with parks and hotels in France, Japan, and Hong Kong China. When a person pays 100 euro to get into the park in France it translants into a 150 American pesos, even with the same attendence rev. with be up40% Example. When they see Walle for 9 euro=$15 dollars,plus a 24% increase in online Hits,making them #1 on media online hits. I have 2 nieces age 14,17 staying with us for the week,asked if they watch Dis, guess what? They watch miley and H.S.M. as well as several other shows.This is not the same co. that catered to 5/10year olds.Now I own Dis to make a profit and at 34/35 I will sell some,and at 29/30 I will buy some.
