    Disney Stock Has Runway, but Not in the Short-Term

    Disney (NYSE:DIS) stock has seen a nice run since April, with shares up more than 30%. Investors are highly bullish on the announced Disney+ streaming service. But with the company's current valuation, is short-term upside limited?Source: Shutterstock Disney is a content machine, and the expansion of streaming will enhance monetization of its entertainment properties. But does this mean short-term upside to the Disney stock price? * 9 Retail Stocks Goldman Sachs Says Are Ready to Rip Read on to see whether the Magic Kingdom's share price still has runway.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Content is King, and Disney is King of ContentDisney's decade-long acquisition spree (Marvel, Lucasfilm) capped off with the purchase of 21st Century Fox. With franchises such as The Simpsons and Avatar joining the portfolio of Star Wars, and the Marvel Universe, it is safe to say Disney is "King of Content."According to Box Office Mojo, Disney's film distribution arm (Buena Vista) had a 34.9% studio market share for the first half of 2019. Combined with 20th Century Fox's 3.9% market share, the combined Disney-21st Century Fox took home nearly 40% of theatrical box office receipts.While theatrical is only a small portion of film entertainment revenues, these figures indicate how the popularity of the company's content is leaps and bounds ahead of peers.Warner Bros., which is owned by AT&T (NYSE: T) subsidiary WarnerMedia, had only a 14.4% market share. Comcast's (NASDAQ:CMCSA) Universal had a 13.5% market share. Sony's (NYSE:SNE) Columbia Pictures had a 9.8% market share. Paramount Pictures, a unit of Viacom (NYSE:VIA) was far behind the pack, with just 5.1% studio market share.But is this extensive collection of entertainment franchises the company's key to beating Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) in the streaming wars? Streaming Strategy Key Catalyst for Disney StockAfter the 21st Century Fox purchase, Disney owns two-thirds of streaming service Hulu. Disney now has full operational control, and can buy out Comcast's one-third stake as early as 2024.Along with ESPN+, Disney already has assets in place to rival Netflix in the streaming wars. Add in Disney+, and the company could leverage their content dominance into a commanding streaming market share.But in the short-term, the company's streaming platforms are losing money. Both ESPN+ and Hulu generate operating losses. Disney+ will lose money for several years as well, with the company anticipating the service to only reach profitability in 2024.Disney generates sufficient free cash flow ($2.7 billion alone in Q1 2019) to subsidize these losses, but in the short-term could see earnings take a dip. Excluding one-time items, the company's Q1 EPS was down 13% YoY.On the other hand, Disney may be able to use increased operating efficiencies to mitigate streaming losses. The 21st Century Fox acquisition is slated to be accretive to earnings, as the company expects $2 billion in cost synergies by 2021.Long-term, the streaming strategy could push the Disney stock price to new highs. But at the current valuation, can investors expect additional short-term upside? Valuation: DIS Stock Pricey, But Could See More ExpansionTo a value investor, Disney stock is a hard pass. Trading at 22 times forward earnings, and at an Enterprise Value/EBITDA ratio of 19, DIS stock sells at a premium to its direct peers:Viacom: 10 times forward earnings, EV/EBITDA of 7.7CBS (NYSE:CBS): 8 times forward earnings, EV/EBITDA of 9.5AT&T: 9 times forward earnings, EV/EBITDA of 7.7Comcast: 13.4 times forward earnings, EV/EBITDA of 10But comparing DIS stock's valuation to its "old media" peers may be the wrong way to look at the stock. To the investing community, Disney's killer combo of billion dollar franchises and streaming infrastructure justifies a premium valuation.If the company continues to meet expectations, investors could bid up the Disney stock price to a valuation closer to that of Netflix and Amazon.But are investors getting ahead of themselves? It could be five years before shareholders see a return on the streaming build-out. With several years until streaming becomes a cash cow, investors may have better opportunities to enter Disney stock down the road. Disney Stock Price Has Runway, But Not in the Short-TermDisney has proved itself time and time again to the investing community. Figuring out new ways to reinvent the wheel, the content juggernaut is a master at monetizing entertainment. With this impressive track record, it is highly likely the streaming strategy will be another game-changer.But the streaming growth story is fully baked into the Disney stock price. Short-term, this could mean that shares tread water at the current price level, potentially falling off if the company's quarterly results fail to meet expectations.Long-term, the streaming strategy could move the needle once it reaches profitability. But in terms of short-term gains, investors should be cautious before entering a position in DIS stock.As of this writing, Thomas Niel did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

  • 3 Dow Jones Stocks to Buy for the Next Decade

    3 Dow Jones Stocks to Buy for the Next Decade

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average may be a fundamentally flawed index in terms of how it's weighted -- choosing to use price rather than the market cap -- but in terms of what companies are in the index, the Dow Jones can't be beat. Dow Jones stocks represent the "Bedrock of America" and some of the most important companies on the planet. There's a reason why financial media still quotes the close and movements of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.However, some of the thirty Dow Jones stocks are better than others. This is especially true when looking at what names will still be in the index down the road and continuing to lead in the world of business.Some Dow stocks feature very forward-looking businesses models and operations. It's these firms that will still be alive and kicking far into the future. And it's here that investors can score on some future potential and the gains and dividends that come with it. In the end, while the Dow is still important, but some stocks within the index are just better than others.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy to Pay the Bills With all of that said, you might be wondering: Which Dow Jones stocks have the best long-term potential? Here are three of the best stocks to buy from the index. Visa (V)Source: Shutterstock When it comes to long-term bets with the Dow Jones stocks, Visa (NYSE:V) has to be at the top of the list. The firm is one of the biggest plays on the continued shift toward a cashless society. And as one of the oldest and largest names in the space, V continues to dominate as we reach for plastic rather than cash.The reason is Visa's business model. The firm functions as a toll-road and collects fees from merchants, banks and other institutions every time someone uses a credit or debit card. V simply operates a secured payment network and moves money from one account to another. So, despite having a Visa logo on your credit card, V itself isn't issuing credit or lending you money.This middleman position is incredibly important for the future. More transactions continue to hit Visa's network. Over the first three months of the year, Visa processed more than 47 billion transactions. This was a 9% year-over-year jump and it's only growing further. With online commerce and fewer people using cash, Visa will be the dominant force going forward. The firm also continues to make inroads into additional services to keep upstarts like PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL) at bay.The best part of all of this is that V features very fat margins and amazing cash flow growth. More transactions on its network simply mean bigger profits for the firm. And it continues to share those profits with its investors -- growing its dividend by 850% over the last decade.The future cashless society will run on Visa. That fact makes one of the best Dow stocks to buy for the long haul. Disney (DIS)Source: Shutterstock Let's be honest, as long people have children, Disney (NYSE:DIS) is going to be making money hand over fist. And lately, DIS has plenty of reasons to underscore that fact.For one thing, its buyout of 21st Century Fox created a media powerhouse. This brought many major movie and T.V. franchises under one roof. And if anybody can monetize that content through a variety of channels, it's Disney. And one of those ways will be its new streaming services.Disney has already begun pulling its shows and movies from rival streaming services in order to make them exclusives to its new Disney+ service. That's big because the vast of streaming is kids programming. With the complete Disney, Lucasfilm, Marvel and Pixar movie libraries as plenty of its original programming content from the Disney Channel, Disney+ will be the go-to channel for parents looking for entertainment.When you combine with the firm's new moves in its park and recreation divisions -- such as Star War's Galaxy Edge -- as well as continued movie development from its studios, there's a lot to like about DIS stock for the long haul. And we've already begun to see those results. Just take a look at Disney's record second-quarter earnings. Those great results don't even take into account streaming yet. * 7 ETFs With Oodles of Diversification For investors, DIS stock is a perfect blend of growth for the long haul. Cisco (CSCO)Source: Shutterstock These days, that famous scene in The Graduate wouldn't be about plastics, but about the cloud. Cloud computing, networking, the app economy continues to reshape how businesses and consumers do, well, everything. Which is why Dow Jones stock, Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) continues to be an amazing long-term pick.CSCO's bread-n-butter remains networking and communications equipment. It still builds all the switches routers, modems and other guts needed to make modern data centers and the internet/cloud computing function. This isn't a bad business to be in as data center demand continues to grow. Analysts at Jones Lang LaSalle estimate that data center demand will double by 2021 as cloud adoption grows. That will send plenty of money Cisco's way.But the ace up Cisco's sleeve has to be its newfound focus on services and software.The firm now offers plenty of tangential products designed to go along with networking. They can not only build you a network but secure it, offer data analytics and other similar products to look after this equipment. These services often come with long subscription times and very fat margins. It's here, that CSCO has quickly become a cash cow and one of the best dividend stocks in the technology sector.Its approach on both equipment and services sales, coupled with rising overall data center demand, CSCO has the goods to keep growing far into the future.As of this writing, Aaron Levitt did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Streaming Already Looks Like a Problem for AT&T Stock

    Finally, some good news for AT&T (NYSE:T) shareholders: T stock hit a seven-year low late last year, but it has rallied since. In fact, the AT&T stock price reached a 52-week high last week before a modest pullback.Source: Shutterstock However, I'm not buying the rally. I've long been a skeptic toward AT&T, and I see little reason to change. The merger between Sprint (NYSE:S) and T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) could provide some competitive help. But Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Dish Network (NASDAQ:DISH) reportedly are entering the market. Plus, AT&T continues to lose share to T-Mobile and Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ).Admittedly, a 6% dividend is nice. But AT&T also has some $200 billion in debt. We've seen low-growth, high-debt dividend stocks like Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD) and Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC) cut their payouts in recent years. AT&T's dividend looks safe for now. But if the cellular business stumbles and DirecTV continues to decline, that may change.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe wild card here is WarnerMedia, built through last year's $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner. WarnerMedia not only adds potential growth, particularly in its HBO and Warner Bros. Entertainment divisions, it gives AT&T control of both content and distribution. That's something media companies increasingly have sought of late. * 7 Dependable Dividend Stocks to Buy But for the AT&T stock price to move higher, the acquisition needs to be a success, and WarnerMedia must grow. The announcement of that unit's plans for a new streaming service casts early doubt on those hopes. The Pricing Problem for HBO MaxWarnerMedia's new service will be called HBO Max, and that alone shows the problem here. WarnerMedia charges $15 per month for HBO Now, the unit's streaming service. The new service will include HBO, along with content from its Turner networks, Warner Bros. studio, and other properties like Looney Tunes.WarnerMedia naturally wants to price its new service in a way that captures the value of the non-HBO properties. But it has a problem. The standard plan from Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) costs $13. Disney (NYSE:DIS) is launching Disney+ in November for $6.99 a month.Thus, HBO Max probably is pricing between $15 and $18, according to reports (AT&T hasn't released an official figure yet). For the approximately 35 million existing subscribers, a shift makes sense. But WarnerMedia is then getting at most just $3 per month in incremental revenue from those subscribers.That incremental revenue -- at most slightly over $1 billion a year -- isn't much. And it isn't even free. WarnerMedia is foregoing an estimated $80 million in annual licensing revenue from Netflix just to reclaim the rights to Friends. It ostensibly will compete with its own TBS and TNT networks, which will lose advertising dollars as cord-cutting accelerates. Any incremental revenue from the current HBO subscriber base and the associated profit, still seems to leave WarnerMedia cannibalizing itself.So, the service must add new subscribers. But here's the exclusive content on HBO Max at its launch next year: HBO, Friends, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Pretty Little Liars, and content from The CW. There are other original series and movies. But is any customer going to pay $18 for that bundle if she's already passed on HBO? How many customers will pay a premium over Disney's and Netflix's cheaper content? Probably very few. The HBO Max Problem for T StockWarnerMedia head John Stankey has said his goal is for the streaming service to reach 70 to 90 million customers. As The Motley Fool pointed out, Disney has targeted 60 million to 90 million within five years. Netflix currently has 60 million U.S. subscribers.Even with an existing HBO base of 35 million, Stankey's goal seems hugely optimistic. There's little reason right now to see HBO Max outperforming those streaming rivals simply from a content standpoint. DirecTV Now subscriber numbers already are plunging, which bodes poorly for the new service. Execution, meanwhile, has been poor from the jump.Stankey originally publicly floated a three-tier pricing structure which, as CNBC reported, had barely been discussed with other senior executives. That concept was axed later. The Hollywood Reporter detailed the confusing rollout (and the questionable logo) of the service, closing by asking, "what the h-- is HBO Max, really?" That's a question WarnerMedia hasn't yet answered less than a year from the launch. AT&T Has Yet to Address the Cord-cutting CrisisAnd a failed streaming service is a big problem for T stock. It undercuts the entire rationale for combining AT&T with DirecTV and Time Warner. It very well may lead to declining earnings overall, as the mobile business stays sideways, profitable landline revenues continue to fall, and DirecTV and Turner both suffer from cord cutting. Without streaming driving growth, AT&T simply looks like a group of challenged business. Even worse, the company carries a debt load that is literally historic in its size.Particularly with the AT&T stock price back at the highs, investors are betting on some sort of success in streaming. Right now, I don't think that success is on the way. And I believe that, once again, T stock will give back its gains.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.

    Value Is Here, Right Now in Roku Stock

    What goes up must come down, or so we're told. But if that discussion is about pricey-looking Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) stock, investors would be wise to tune into today's momentum opportunity and buy before shares grow even richer. Let me explain.Source: Shutterstock Its earnings season for many on Wall Street. And if you like watching paint dry, Citigroup (NYSE:C) which kicked off the festivities this week with its results, is just waiting for bulls to wake up to its better-than-forecast report.Then there's ROKU.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWith earnings still a full month away Roku stock is breaking out with nary a peep from today's headlines. Unofficially, ROKU could be anticipating a stronger-than-forecast confessional from streaming video on demand or SVOD giant Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) which releases results Wednesday night.While Netflix may be the crown jewel, the SVOD market is a crowded field. There's Disney's (NYSE:DIS) Hulu, the forthcoming Disney+, Prime Video from Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), HBO Go, Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) YouTube and the list goes on and on. But as the platform of choice for watching all that entertainment, Roku stands to benefit no matter who can outspend who on content to control our eyeballs. * 9 Retail Stocks Goldman Sachs Says Are Ready to Rip So sure, you could maintain that Roku stock is expensive. It is and many of my colleagues at InvestorPlace have argued that point. But during growth phases of a secular trend like the one fueling ROKU, shares aren't going to offer traditional value investors many, if any, opportunities.The good news is ROKU stock is offering momentum traders a terrific chance to profit right here, right now. Roku Stock Weekly Chart Buying pullbacks and larger corrections are of course the most commonly accepted way to "find value" in a name such as Roku stock. And while those types of entries rightfully find favor among investors, they also have their limitations.The most obvious challenge is when that pullback entry in ROKU turns into a much-more-punishing spiral in the share price. Many investors will pull the plug on their prior optimism and dump shares at a loss in fear of even larger losses. And it's easy to second guess ourselves too.More often than we like to believe, those "value" opportunities don't look nearly as attractive when the punishing price action occurs. Remember 2018's market correction? And compared to the stodgy old Dow Jones Industrials or a mature tech company like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), those declines paled next to Roku stock's crash of 65%.Today's breakout entry doesn't have those potential shortfalls. With the market at its back and a breakout from a month-long base in hand, a momentum purchase in ROKU stock, plain and simple, makes sense. It has its own special kind of value in this type of environment which shouldn't be dismissed.My only recommendation in Roku is this -- remember to take profits when they're offered. And please don't make the mistake of allowing a breakout to become a pullback and, potentially, something much more sinister.Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in any securities mentioned in this article.

    Looking for More Pre-Earnings Magic from Disney

    To receive further updates on this Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) trade as well as an alert when it's time to take profits, sign up for a risk-free trial of Strategic Trader today.Earnings season has officially started, and that means there will be increased volatility in the market for the next few weeks.We try to limit our risk by not holding trades through earnings announcements. So just like with the Costco (NASDAQ:COST) trade we recommended last week, we're looking to trade on a company without holding it through its earnings report. We don't do this with every trade, but we have found it to be a successful approach in most cases.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWalt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) has been a fantastic stock for us this year, and with the recent release of The Lion King and Spider-Man: Far From Home, we think now is a great time to open a new trade.We've successfully completed two bullish put write trades on the company this year, and it's slowly becoming one of our favorite stocks to trade on. New Movies and New MarketsThe last time we recommended a trade on DIS, we mentioned the success of movies like Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, Aladdin and Toy Story 4. Avengers: Endgame continues to close in on Avatar's box office record. The recently released Spider-Man: Far From Home has already earned $847 million globally. DIS's movie offerings are going to keep bringing in cash for the company.We also mentioned that DIS is expanding into streaming services. The company now owns a large stake in Hulu, and Disney+ will help increase its dominance in that market. And unlike other companies that wade into streaming services, DIS has money from its movies, TV shows and theme parks to help support a new service. Resistance at $142 Could Become SupportWe frequently mention that old resistance becomes new support, and that seems to be the case with DIS. The stock completed a bullish "wedge" continuation pattern as it broke above horizontal resistance at around $142 last week. Before that, it had been consolidating below $142 for nearly a month.Daily Chart of The Walt Disney Company (DIS) -- Chart Source: TradingViewIf $142 becomes new support for DIS, that makes it a good strike price for a put write.DIS is scheduled to release its second quarter earnings on August 6, after market close. And as mentioned above, that leads to more volatility. We don't want to get caught in any post-earnings profit taking, so we want to pick an expiration before DIS reports earnings.To find out which DIS puts we're selling -- and to get access to our full portfolio of income-generating trades -- consider signing up for risk-free trial subscription to Strategic Trader today.

    5 Dow Jones Stocks to Buy Now

    U.S. equities continue to show an upward bias on Monday, with the S&P 500 holding above the 3,000 level while the Dow Jones Industrial Average remains north of the 27,000 level. Impressive gains all around as Wall Street continues to look past things like uneven economic data and an inverted yield curve to focus instead on the dovish policy pivot by the Federal Reserve and the likelihood of interest rate cuts later this year. A number of mega-cap components in the Dow are perking up nicely and still present attractive entry points for buyers on the sidelines looking to get into the action. The early action in many of the names seems predicated on a thawing of U.S.-China trade relations later this year. * 10 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for the Rest of 2019 and Beyond With all of that in mind, here are five Dow Jones stocks to consider: InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Caterpillar (CAT) Click to EnlargeShares of heavy equipment maker Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) are extending further away from its 200-day moving average to close in on the prior high set back in April. A breakout here would put an end to a long downtrend pattern going back to January 2018 and would set the stage for a challenge on the prior record high near $170, which would be worth a gain of more than 21% from here. The company will next report results on July 24 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of $3.12 per share on revenues of $14.5 billion.
