Does Disney Still Have the Magic for Investors?

The following video is from Wednesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Charly Travers and Jason Moser discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, Disney (NYSE: DIS  )  reported a 6% decline in first-quarter earnings. Disney's parks and resort business and its media business reported big gains for the quarter, but Disney's studio entertainment business slipped 5%. Our analysts discuss what this means for investors.

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.
