The Wrong Reason to Sell Disney

Disney's (NYSE: DIS  )  stock dipped last week after the company pushed back the release dates on two Pixar Animation films, meaning that next summer will be the first in eight years without a new Pixar movie in theaters.

In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos argues that the scheduling change, despite its potential to ding to Disney's results next year, is a non-event for long-term shareholders. If anything, Demitrios says, investors should applaud the fact that Disney isn't releasing what could have been a subpar film just to pad results for a given calendar year.
