Disney's future of profitability is a multi-pronged offense starting first with it's powerhouse of licensed brands being made into movies. Marvel has become the highest grossing franchise of all time, Star Wars will be a big hit even if the movies are somehow terrible (which, given Disney's ability to make incredible movies seems unlikely), and Pixar doesn't even seem to know what a bad movie is. Speaking of movies, have you seen Frozen? The answer is most likely yes, and if you've seen the lines for meeting Elsa at any of their theme parks you'll know just how big these movies can be. Speaking of theme parks, they've been knocking it out of the park too. Circling that analogy back around it leads me to my final point: ESPN. Does that one even need explaining?

Avengers and Frozen! :) Double-digit revenue and income growth. Great portfolio of brands for long-term growth.

If content will rule TV then Disney is in the right place.

DIS has a lot of momentum built up from excellent developments in its media division, especially the recent success by Captain America 2. More will come from the upcoming Star Wars franchise continuation.

Having recently acquired Marvel, I believe Disney is making smart choices. If they don't botch Star Wars I think that can be a HUGE asset to the Disney CO. Time will tell...

Disney looks like wants to roll over and get to $75
Any short-term pullback must be bought though!

Currently owns it and planning to wait it out!

What are two things that people willingly overpay for most? Nostalgia and their children. Disney's got a sustainable stranglehold on both.

Disney is the movie studio best positioned to succeed in the future. It holds the biggest brands and blockbusters.

So many opportunities. Theme parks, movies (Star Wars), TV stations (new deal with Dish for streaming service). Should easily outperform.

Star Wars and Shanghai is all in the future and Pixar and the others so no sign so far of slowing down. Theme park pricing is starting to get a little heady, but lots of international visitation continues, especially where the dollar is unfavorable to a particular foreign currency (WDW right now attracts a LOT of business from Brazil). Paris, while not technically part of the company, is slowly on the mend with a new, focused management. So far the only downside continues to be the old DIMG group, but making money in games and online games is terribly difficult and will probably always be a low margin business, but one Disney needs to stay in for brand recognition.

Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Marvel...three of the entertainment industries largest movie franchises which Disney now owns. Each will continue to guarantee billion dollar box office tentpoles for many, many years to come...and that is almost a guarantee.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.

Equities are somewhere between fair and overvalued right now, so you want to buy high quality companies and it doesn't get much better than this one.
