    Stunning report - +0.30%
    Sometimes I am really wondering if the traders/investors are retarded or something...I mean, what are they expecting?I am almost sure tommorow $DIS is going down a bit.

    Almost every stock I own that beat expectations went down so it's no surprise that even $DIS can't get a break on good earnings/guidance.

    Like the stock but sure would love if the dividend would be increased well above the current 1%

    So what is the problem if DIS does not raise their dividend up to 2% if the stock price increases by 20%? Be blessed because you own the stock.

    Only saying that a substantial dividend increase would be like a cherry on top of a sundae - - Can't hurt to wish ( I know I know ... careful what you wish for . . . New Disney movie . . . Go Disney)

    DIS is more a growth-y blue chip like V, MA etc. If you want dividend, go pharma stocks like PFE or JNJ

    I just don't see DIS as expensive like so many say it is...far to many growth opportunities for years to come. Seems like every major acquisition is highly profitable and applicable to more than just the silver screen.

    Correct.

     

    I can't way to see how they monetize Lucas's Star Wars franchise. They've already made back what they paid for Marvel and then some...
