When the Walt Disney Company (DIS) purchased the Star Wars franchise from George Lucas, I remember thinking at the time that the purchase was an awesome one. After all, when you are a media company, it is all about the content. Or to rephrase it, "content is king". Without the right content, you are destined to fail.
With media companies, the goal is simple. Have as many sets of eyeballs looking at your content as possible. But Walt Disney has other things going for it too, like its theme parks that attract millions of visitors each year.
Disney in Florida is adding a new Star Wars themed section that they are building in their park, sort of like how Universal Studios has a whole section with a Harry Patter theme.

In the article I wrote for Goldman Sachs today, I made a reference to Disney’s chart. Goldman’s chart illustrates the potential for Disney’s trade that is setting up. Be certain to check out Goldman’s article too!
I’ll be sure to support the stock price by getting out to see the new Star Wars movie with my son over the Christmas break
I hope to see it with the wife over that same time period….it’s getting good reviews and I am a Star Wars nut, so it should be fun!!
