Stock of the Day: Disney

Pixar, a division of The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS  ) , has released 14 films in its history and all 14 have debuted at No. 1 at the box office. Monsters University is the latest after taking in more than $82 million in its opening weekend. One of the keys to Pixar/Disney's success: consistency. In this installment of Stock of the Day, Motley Fool analyst Jason Moser discusses how the company is able to build on the success of the movies by leveraging characters from the Pixar universe into Disney's theme parks, TV properties, and more.

    I completely DISAGREE - there is one thing which is consistent with Disney but it's not "quality" of human relations and this translates on the market as "bad karma". I PREDICT we will see a huge DECLINE in DIS stock values when more catastrophes within the organization and its deployment polices will reflect. One of sad but now knowledgeable misinformation about Disney is it's informal "non diversity" program. Disney has gone on records stating it hasn't devoted the material resources nor promotion of "diversified culture" in its fairytale depictions of an alter-tangented utopia of unbelievable "princesses" and mock idols manufactured on bubble gum fluff to the masses. When in reality the storyline lack substance and the material reflects "dark" and gothly creations of the imagination. More and more parents are realizing Disney gives kids nightmares because of the lurid imagery layered within "mystic" gnarliness. I stopped watching Disney after "The Princess & The Frog" when I worked there and found out - it may be the "happiest" place on Earth in signification but in reality, based on the morale of upper management's mistreatment of lower level employees - it's the "unhappiest". One thing is for sure karma always catches "up" and mirrors what it beholds. "Fairest" takes on a much broader and insidious interpretation when the cobwebs of child molestation, mind control funded programs, and political bribes hit the waves about "Disney".
