    It's best not to try to trade Disney. I learned that the hard way in the past. Owned 100 shares @ $28 and sold at $35 thinking it would drop back down under $30 and I could load up again. I listened to the 'Fast Money' crowd and it cost me a bundle. My current position in DIS is not for sale and will eventually be turned over to my kids one day. I can't think of a better long term stock to own than this one.

    I owned 100 shares of DIS at $28 and unfortunately sold out at $35. I let the talking heads on CNBC talk me into selling and waiting on the next dip to get back in. Well obviously I outsmarted myself. I bit the bullet and bought back in at $64 and I plan on literally holding these shares forever. Disney is a company you want to turnover to your kids one day.

    As for Cramer....he was openly bearish on DIS when it was around $60.

    Buy and Hold Disney for your Retirement.

    I agree with you 100%. One of the biggest investment mistakes I ever made was selling Disney at $35 after buying it at $28. The "gurus" out there were saying that you should sell at $35 and wait for a pullback to $30 and get back in. Well guess what? $30 was never seen again and either was $40, $50, $60, $70 etc.

    The LucasFilm and Marvel acquisitions changed the game entirely for Disney. They now have an incredibly deep pool of iconic characters and content to draw from for many years to come. The Star Wars craze has not even begun yet and when it does you will see the stock moving to even higher highs.

    DIS is without a doubt one of if not the best "buy and hold forever" stocks in the world.

    I expect the movie to easily exceed $1 billion worldwide making it's way to $1.5 billion before it's all said and done. Star Wars: "The Force Awakens" will do even bigger numbers. It is an exciting to time to be a Disney shareholder!

  • As oil continues to fall all-in costs for the miners should fall with it. Earnings this year should be much better for the well capitalized miners. Oil is down 50% since last June. That has to count for something.

    Sentiment: Buy
