Michael Kramer

The Walt Disney Co.'s ( DIS) stock performance over the past year has been anything but magical, with shares rising by about 4% versus an S&P 500 that has increased by 14.5%. Analysts are forecasting for the company to see earnings growth of nearly 25% when it reports quarterly results in August. Options traders are betting shares of Disney will rise by expiration on Sept. 21 based on the betting at the $105 strike price.
