The following video is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Joe Magyer, discuss the top business and investing stories.
In this segment, the guys take a look at DreamWorks Animation (Nasdaq: DWA ) , and its latest picture, Rise of the Guardians. The film has grossed only $40 million domestically thus far, and having cost $145 million to produce, it may be a serious loss on DreamWorks' books. But that may very well bring the company down to a point where it's a nice time to buy.
The company every animation studio is hoping to emulate is, of course, Disney. It's easy to forget that Walt Disney is more than just the House of the Mouse. True, Disney amusement parks around the world hosted more than 121 million guests in 2011. But from its vast catalog of characters to its monster collection of media networks, much of Disney's allure for investors lies in its diversity, and The Motley Fool's new premium research report lays out the case for investing in Disney today. This report includes the key items investors must watch as well as the opportunities and threats the company faces going forward.
