Why The Disney (DIS) Ride Might Be Just Getting Started

 | 

It is always hard to bet against the mouse house. The world enjoys the magic of Disney everywhere. With the plan for Disney to deliver its own over the top service, all eyes are on Disney to see if that can work. If any one company has the content to do it, it is probably Disney.

Let's look at the chart, because Disney made fresh new all time highs when dividends are included on Friday.
so This chart has multiple things that make it bullish. The stock has been outperforming since early October. While the rest of the market pulled back, Disney held up very well. That is really bullish. We can see this also broke a three year down trend in relative strength as well as new 52-week highs in relative strength. Very bullish when the stock did not drop like the indexes. The price has been consolidating for four years and has been in a $20 range for the last two. That is very bullish overall. The recent price action which is continually stretching the ceiling suggests this base is about to be left behind. 

One thing to watch on Disney is the momentum trend shown on the PPO. It looks like it wants to push higher in terms of momentum but it is up against this declining momentum line. Be careful if the momentum starts to roll over here. The reason this trend line exists at all is the momentum continually peaks just when investors thought the stock could go on to new highs.

You can also see Arthur Hill's commentary on the short term setup in this article for members. Disney close up. One of the best values on the internet is the editorial content on StockCharts.com.

Here is this week's broad market review video. This also demonstrates the new Market Summary video and how to get to it.
