Disney+ has added subscribers. She has owned them for some time. They have good content and it is priced reasonably. She signed up and was impressed with all the streaming options that were available. The theme parks are doing well globally as has the movie production segment. It is reasonably priced and although they will likely lose money on their streaming services for the first couple of years, she sees it as a good long term hold.

For years, it wasn't doing much, but he bought it because Disney+ was coming. Also, their other businesses are great. Buy this for the long-term. They will grow their dividend 10% annually. Valuation isn't expensive compared to its peers. Disney+ subs will exceed expectations.

It’s a huge, great company. It’s picked up from Disney+. The competition is looking to pan out for them, but Netflix is still competitive. From October to February, they tend to do well.

It's peaked for years at 4x its book value without breaking through. But when they announced they were streaming, the stock broke out. We've had a speculative buy signal just as earnings forecasts are tailing off. As long as it holds at $140 support, you're safe. Fundamentals vs. technical data.

(A Top Pick Nov 13/18, Up 31%) Liked the deal with 20th Century Fox. It diluted the cord-cutting with ABC and ESPN, and set the stage for Disney to get into the streaming wars. Trading around 20x earnings, while Netflix trades at 3x that value. Disney has the chops to go toe to toe with Netflix.

Has owned this since 2012 and buying it recently. Launching their streaming service today. Last week, they reported good numbers about their Dutch test for Disney+. Their movies and theme parks are performing well. They can leverage their content well to attract subscribers. Overall, she's confident Disney+ will do well. Wait for a pullback and don't chase this. Buy for the long term.

They have the best content to compete with Netflix and are priced well. There may be some execution risk after buying Fox, but their amusement parks still make up a big chunk of revenues. Also, their brand is unmatched. (Analysts’ price target is $153.71)

They have great media assets, like ESPN and Fox, which are on cable. But Disney+ is a streamer, which needs a separate subscription and may lead to cord-cutting of their own assets--cannibalizing. Overall, the streaming space will become more competitive. Now, Disney is fairly valued. If they get customers to double-dip in both media, how long will that last?

A great box office that spills over into merchandise and streaming. Verizon just announced they will give Disney Plus free to subscribers. A blue chip holding. Yield 1.34% (Analysts’ price target is $154.00)

DIS vs. NFLX Two completely different companies in the same business. Netflix is the grand daddy of streaming. Success built on increasing subscriber base. Under the hood, it's cashflow negative. Accounting tricks let them amortize earnings. Disney is an established behemoth, getting into streaming. They own parks and ESPN, and have substance to support streaming investment.
