Recent Buy: The Walt Disney Co.

Jan 27, 2015: Bought 27 shares of DIS at $94.32 per share.

The Walt Disney Company (DIS), more commonly known as Disney, is a diversified international family entertainment company based in Burbank, California. Founded on October 16, 1923, by Walt Disney and Roy O. Disney, the company established itself as a leader in the American animation industry before diversifying into live-action film production, television, and theme parks. Today, Disney operates in five business segments: media networks, parks and resorts, studio entertainment, consumer products and interactive media.

Disney pays dividends annually in the month of January and has a streak of 5 years of dividend increases. My initial yield on cost (YoC) is 1.22%.

Disney's stock has significantly outperformed the S&P since September 2011 and, consequently, over the last 10 years. DIS has a 5-year Beta averaging about 1.16.
