  1. I first read this as you were buying Pixar. The Lizard King was having a ??? moment. NOOOOO, Disney!!! Turns you haven't lost your mind. Nice buy.

    1. LOL...but why Disney (DIS) is a NO? It looks good too, S&P gives it a "buy" rating. I think it's a little overvalued though.

      Thanks for stopping by, FV.
