The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer-goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discusses topics around the investing world.
Disney has been a tremendous long-term holding for investors, and it isn't showing any signs of slowing down. That's because Disney has one key advantage over the competition: a deep pool of characters to put on film. The importance of these characters is demonstrated in the smash success of The Avengers, and the huge flop that was John Carter. Fortunately for Disney, its 2009 acquisition of Marvel gave it even more characters to use in future films -- something its competition can't claim.
