Shares of Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) have been volatile lately, which has given investors an opportunity. Disney stock had been rallying over the past few trading sessions as it bounced off the 200-day moving average, but Disney stock was under pressure the day after the Oscars, falling about 1.5%.Source: Richard Stephenson via Flickr (Modified) It's left some investors scratching their heads, even though it's clear that other studios -- like Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) -- did nab a lot of awards and attention at the show. But we don't buy stocks based on how they'll do during a few award ceremonies. We buy them based on their future earnings potential. When it comes to Disney, there's plenty of potential. Let's look at a few reasons to buy Disney stock. Big Year for the Disney StudioWhat a year it's going to be for Disney when it comes to film releases. And while the analysts may short-change some of these films, remember that these are the guys that didn't see Black Panther being that impactful when it ultimately went on to become one of the most successful movies of all time. * 7 Consumer Stocks to Buy and Hold for Years Here's what we're looking at 2019: Captain Marvel and live-action Dumbo in March, Penguins and Avengers: Endgame in April, and live-action Aladdin in May. Toy Story 4 hits in June, The Lion King in July and Frozen 2 in November. And what better way to finish out the year than with Star Wars: Episode 9, right?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSimply put, the studio is going to crush it this year and Disney's top and bottom line are going to feel a boost as a result. Strong Economy, Strong BusinessThe economy continues to chug along and the labor market is as tight as it's been in quite some time. What does that mean? Well, for one it means big business for Disney.Family vacations to Disney parks, splurging to lodge in the magical hotels and paying up for extra perks should help drive higher margins and revenue for Disney. The fact that attendance remains strong despite higher park prices will only drive up profits for the entertainment king.But a strong economy translates to more than just park sales. It means more little kids dressing up as Avengers and Elsa from Frozen for Halloween. It means more toy sales -- which also benefits Disney's partner Hasbro (NASDAQ:HAS) -- around the holidays and more outings to the theatre. No matter how you slice it, a strong economy is good for Disney. Streaming Could Boost Disney Stock Click to EnlargeThis last reason is somewhat of a wild card. We could have easily said that shares are holding over long-term downtrend resistance and as a result that warrants a buy of Disney stock. For the record, I don't disagree with that premise, but instead wanted to focus on a different potential catalyst.The streaming wars are evident and cord-cutting is most definitely a secular trend. Only someone who lives under a rock would argue against that reality at this point. It's dealt a tough blow to cable companies and AT&T (NYSE:T), while allowing companies like Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) to post massive moves to the upside.In any regard, Disney has already launched ESPN+, a streaming platform for its ESPN content. However, the larger opportunity rests with Disney+, which will have the company's movies (like Star Wars, Marvel, etc.) and it family-friendly content on it. For those that think people won't pay for it, just realize how many times a kid wants to rewatch the same movie over and over again and Disney+ just became a parent's best friend.With its acquisition of Twenty-First Century Fox, Disney will also control a majority of Hulu, yet another streaming option. Many of Netflix's top-streamed movies have been Disney and soon it will start losing the latter's content. Disney has a real opportunity with streaming and investors will want to see if that enthusiasm gets priced into the stock at some point this year, with Disney+ expected to launch later this year. * 7 IPOs to Get Excited for in 2019 Remember, as Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) YouTubeTV, Roku and other streaming platforms and skinny bundles gain momentum, Disney is a winner thanks to its best-in-class content.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

JAKKS Pacific's (JAKK) top line in fourth-quarter 2018 was impacted by the Toys 'R' Us liquidation. The company expects sales to grow by nearly 5% in 2019.
Hasbro, Inc. (HAS), a global play and entertainment company, has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as one of the 2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies. Hasbro has been recognized eight years in a row, and is one of only three honorees in the consumer products industry.
First, let's address the big thing we've all noticed in Weight Watchers International (NASDAQ:WTW) and that's the stock has been a huge dud. WTW stock is down roughly 60% over the past 12 months and has been trapped in a massive downtrend. Why would anyone want to enter this name ahead of earnings, scheduled for tomorrow, February 26, after the close?Source: Shutterstock Well, there are actually a few decent recents to consider owning WTW stock. When the calendar flips to a new year, people turn to making resolutions. "New year, new me," they say. For many, that means dieting and exercise, which means more money for Weight Watchers. As we push into the summer season, beach-bod goals have more customers jumping into a Weight Watchers plan. * 5 Dow Jones Stocks That Will Lead the Market Higher Put simply, while Weight Watchers stock may not enjoy fiscal Q4 as much as many other companies -- say like a Canada Goose (NYSE:GOOS) or Hasbro (NYSE:HAS) -- it has six solid months of business coming. Fiscal Q1 and Q2 are the company's two strongest quarters. But if guidance is weak, investors will ignore that catalyst. They need a strong outlook from management to get this stock flying.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Valuing Weight Watchers StockIt's hard to be overly bearish on a stock that's already down 60% over the past year. Further, it's hard to be bearish on that stock when it's expected to earn $2.86 per share for fiscal 2018. Not only is that up almost 75% from fiscal 2017 (assuming WTW can deliver in-line or better Q4 results), but it also values WTW stock at just 10.3x earnings.Revenue is set to grow more than 17% in fiscal 2018 and analysts see even more growth ahead. Growth estimates for 2019 stand at 8.2%, with earnings forecast to grow another 20% to $3.43 per share. Again, it's important that Weight Watchers is able to deliver a solid outlook, giving investors a reason to bid this name higher.We need to see strong subscriber growth and know that business is holding steady. While Q3 wasn't a bad quarter, the company did miss on earnings and revenue expectations. Interestingly enough though, management raised its full-year outlook in the quarter, so it's surprising that investors didn't cut WTW a little slack. Either way, it doesn't matter. We need a solid quarter and outlook to get the bulls back on board.Analysts are looking for 60 cents per share in Q4, down from the 63 cents per share they were looking for 90 days ago. On the revenue front, Estimates call for ~$347 million in sales. As we saw in Q3, the results do matter, even if the outlook is strong.On the balance sheet front, WTW would be more attractive if the company didn't carry $1.6 billion in long-term debt, although that is down more than 25% from fiscal year-end 2015. Remember, this is a ~$2 billion market cap company, so its balance sheet is somewhat less than ideal. Trading WTW StockDespite some of the seemingly positive developments at Weight Watchers, we have one true guide: price.Simply put, it's been a rough ride for WTW stock. However, shares are oversold and momentum is seemingly bottoming out, as indicated by the blue circles on the RSI and MACD measurements. Weight Watchers stock also has a 17% short interest. * 7 Cheap Stocks That Make the Grade On the weekly chart, as shown above, the 10-week moving average continues to pressure the share price lower. It is now below the 200-week moving average as well. If we get a positive reaction to earnings, I need to see a close over the 10-week moving average near $33.80. Should we get it, then it can kickstart a larger rally, perhaps up to $40, where a prior downtrend line current resides. Should WTW stock react negatively to earnings, look to see that the bottom of downtrend support holds, currently near $25.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.
