Disney (Walt) Company (NYSE:DIS) -- Semi-Monthly Update
Disney looks strong fundamentally but is beginning to look just a bit Toppy technically speaking. Mild Caution is warranted. I just completed my weekly study of all my High Profile Cyclical - Conglomerates / Entertainment. This is a study that is one more that enjoy because I have spent so much time and experience in the study of Companies like (DIS). Visiting with this friend is fun.
My previous articles on DIS (just click) will provide you with the exact history of my Forecasting and its accuracy.
My Performance for Disney can be found below and is well over 43% per year for the last 5 years.
My objective is to identify changing trends for my Forecasting Analytics. Simple stated, I want to have current notes to quickly refer to on the anticipated direction of this Sector and Industry Group.

Forecast & Opinion from my Study / Analytics:
Disney (Walt) Company and other Cyclical - Conglomerate / Entertainment Sector Companies are tracking well. Although (DIS) has been in a strong Up-Trend for well over a couple of years it is always an excellent contributor to my Analytics. My Forecasts were both Accurate and very Profitable over the past several years.
Forecasted Performance - - - Bullish Cycle - - Performing Well:

Typically, "Pazazz Performance" does not come from Companies like (DIS). In good times this conservative giant does the job quite well along with paying a decent dividend.

Ascending - BUT - Remember - Greed is ALWAYS Costly.
At this time (DIS) remains in a Bullish mode and has produced an annualized profit - over the past few years of about +43%. (that's per year - not including dividends).
It, however is currently giving -- both Fundamental and Technical - - Bearish "Warnings" that if ignored will be costly.

Thanks for your interest in my Forecasts - work / analytics . . .
My Current Forecast way back in late 2011 was very positive and it has paid off very well! (I will be more specific upon request).
If you own or are considering owning Cyclical - Conglomerate / Entertainment Companies, the securities are definitely on the strong side and remain Favorable. Disney (Walt) Company is currently strong both Fundamentally and Technically. I have reservations about the coming direction of the General Market, therefore I have placed it on an Initial Bearish Forecast - "Warning." (I can help if you want).
My Current Opinion is to HOLD in anticipation of taking profits.
Fundamentally (weighting - - 40%): My Analytics from my Fundamental Valuation play a vital role in profitable managing money. At this time my Valuations of (DIS) are positive but not euphoric. Plainly stated they are Improving and look quite positive and they are positive for the foreseeable future.
Technically (weighting - - 35%): Even with this fine Company, my Indicators are notably breaking down. It is currently selling near its highs of $76. The future direction of (DIS) must be monitored with care.
Consensus Opinion - ( weighting - - 25% ): My third pillar of Research is one that is ALWAYS distorted to the Positive by most all financial analysts. I believe that is because they are afraid of being Bearish. I Am NOT! My articles on "Reality" are supportive of this - have a look.
I will personally and promptly reply to any serious investor's inquiry as to my very cautious position for (DIS) !
