After running neck-and-neck with Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) in 2012 -- with both more than doubling the market's average return -- Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) has moved ahead of the pack this year, up 22% so far in 2013, versus 16% for Disney, and 9% for the S&P 500.
Expect Warner to keep leading. A plan to spin-off its slowly deteriorating publishing business should allow the company to enjoy even greater earnings impact from forthcoming box office blockbusters such as July's Man of Steel, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova in the following video.
