6 Consumer Stocks That Won’t Slow Down: Disney (DIS)

Consumers love shopping … and consumer also love entertainment.

That’s why another household name and relatively ubiquitous company that simply has to be on this list is Disney (DIS).

It makes the cut partially because our culture and consumers love media so much, and partially because there are simply so many ways money is coming into the company.

From TV shows and movies to their accompanying amusement parks and merchandise, you can just picture a kid begging his or her parent for the latest Disney apparel — and Pops finally giving in.

Just like Target, being an established brand has hardly tarnished growth. Shares of Disney stock are up 14% so far in 2015 and 23% over the last year.

Toss in thick operating margins, double-digit growth prospects and decent dividend, and there’s a lot to like.

Dow Jones Stocks to Buy: Disney (DIS)

Disney (DIS) may be one of my favorite Dow Jones stocks of all time. Yes, I know that everyone is fretting over ESPN, but those concerns will pass.

If there is one thing that Disney has repeatedly proven over all the years it has been with us, is that it can transition. I don’t just mean in terms of management (although Eisner to Iger has been brilliant), but also in how it approaches everything having to do with entertainment.

I’ve been harping on the Pixar, Marvel and LucasFilm acquisitions in every column, but that’s because these studios are truly the future for Disney. They truly will provide content for the next hundred years that it can center its entire business around. We know Star Wars will be a monster hit. We know Marvel is killing it every time.

And so will Disney. Forever.

Large-Cap Stocks to Buy: Walt Disney (DIS)

Although, I personally am not a fan of their amusement parks, Walt Disney (DIS) is at the top of my list of large-cap stocks to buy.

Currently many investors are saying DIS is a little expensive, trading at [b]22 times past earnings,[/b] as DIS is on the verge of releasing what could be the biggest blockbuster movie of all time and a true game changer for the stock with the new Star Wars movie.

But regardless of what happens with Star Wars, let’s take a look at why Disney tops the list of large-cap stocks to buy today, tomorrow and anytime time you have extra money to invest.

When you buy DIS you are purchasing a company with stability, revenue reliability and long-term staying power due to the multiple business units Disney operates in.

Having multiple business units is highly sought after because if one unit is struggling, the others can make up the difference. But even more than that, the harmony in which each unit leverages the success of the others makes Disney a one-of-a-kind organization.

From the outside the different units may all look like a random assortment of diverse businesses.

But Disney’s ability to leverage network stations such as ESPN, ABC or the Disney Channel to promote other Disney-backed projects (think movies), which it can then incorporate into its theme parks, serves to increases merchandising, thus bringing it full circle to Disney’s Television Group for new ideas.

This whole process also takes what would normally be a one-time and one product customer, turning them into a multiple product life-long customer.

Thinking of the long-term, if the Star Wars reboot or any other major Disney backed project turns out to be a bust, Disney should easily be able to survive. The company was ranked #11 on Forbes list of the “World’s Most Valuable Brands in 2015,” which gives it the strength to work through a few possible missteps, if they were to occur.

And did I mention Disney is the 30th largest company in the world based on market cap, making it one the largest, large-cap stocks?
