Mario Gabelli Comments on Walt Disney

Guru stock highlight

September 04, 2019 | About:
Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) (1.7%) (DIS – $139.64 – NYSE) is a diversified media company, with operations in cable network television, television broadcasting, filmed entertainment, theme park operation, and consumer products. With leading intellectual property across brands like Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars, Disney is well positioned to develop its previously announced direct-to-consumer product Disney Plus, creating a true competitor to Netflix. We also expect the company’s parks and resorts business to grow materially over the medium term as recent investments begin to generate a return. While facing the secular threat of cord–cutting, the company’s legacy cable properties ESPN, ABC, and the Disney Channel should continue to generate cash sufficient to fund Disney’s investment in its OTT service.

From Mario Gabelli (Trades, Portfolio)'s Gabelli Asset Fund's second-quarter 2019 shareholder letter.
