I NEVER do this but wtf I will try to help a bagger out...Presently you can get the Jan 2019 DIS $105 calls for less than $600...

These things will be trading around $1000+ in december when star wars is coming out.
I own disney stock at a great +++ right now from some great buys and I am always tracking it for new opportunities to increase my holdings. I've bought calls today to secure $$$.. Basically if disney goes over $105 in the next year I'll get a tidy $$$..


Even if you don't want to go the call route, straight up stock purchases at sub $100 are great right now. There has been a lot of fear for the whole ESPN issues with viewers etc but I think that's over rated. Disney marvel/star wars is cranking in the dough and JJ abrahms just signed on...


I am going to regret putting this in writing...

I bought the rights or "Option" to purchase 100 shares of disney at $105 a share anytime before the 3rd week of Jan 2019. For thisi paid (including fees $597 per contract). So if Disney goes to $110 a share I hold the right to buy 100 shares at $105 so that makes the intrinsic value $500. I paid $597 so I would lose $97. But options also have a time value so the longer the call (this one is over 15 months) the more opportunity it has to go up in value so the more money it's worth. The time value could be $300 so you have $500 intrinsic and $300 time for a total value of $800 and a $200 profit.
The cool thing about options is you don't have to buy 100 shares of stock to close the contract. (You'd need $105x100 shares or $10500). You can just sell the contract to someone else at it's value.

The are also looking to acquire 21 century fox, which I believe has a 60% stake in Hulu which would immediately give Disney control over an established streaming platform. Disney is trying to roll out it's own streaming service and HULU would save them tons of work and marketing...

So this isn't even a Star Wars bump yet...

The folks who revived Disney since the 80s have done a terrific job. Eisner, Katzenberg, Ovitz, Iger. I think maybe the run is over but I don't know shit.

...aaand there you go...Disney acquires 21 Century fox, has the ins for a streaming platform, snags FX, Fox Sports, UFC broadcasts, Movie Library and just gets an even scarier hold on the eyes and ears of the consumer...and as a stock holder I smile...$120 by this time next year...greedy fingers crossed...
