Financial Markets News: what STAR WARS is doing to Disney

| May 21, 2015 | More

The Force is with Disney in a big way, and financial analysts are predicting that the next Star Wars movie, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” has the potential to skyrocket Disney share values by as much as 25 percent over the next six months. Before you sink your entire inheritance into everyone’s favorite mouse, however, make sure that you have all the facts. Certain things will have to happen in the stock market over those six months in order for share values to take off to that degree[1].

According to MarketWatch analyst Nigam Arora, “It is common for movie-studio stocks to run up in anticipation of a major release.” Furthermore, said Arora, “There has not been any recent movie release more anticipated than ‘The Force Awakens.’” He went on to add that in his opinion, while Disney is a great long-term stock to own, there are some risks associated with buying it at this time. He noted that Disney is likely to be overbought in the coming months, making values more volatile and likely to head downward quickly, and that at this time, fewer investors own larger share volumes of Disney stock, which also can affect a stock’s stability. In the long term, Disney stock has gained 3800 percent in value, so holding for the long haul is probably a pretty good option.

Would you buy Disney stock right now? Do you already own some?
