Disney Stock Drops After Earnings – Why We're Still Bullish

Disney stock is down almost 13% this year and 21% in the last three months.

The latest Star Wars installment failed to give Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) stock an expected boost in January, despite generating over $1.5 billion in domestic box-office revenue.

"Star Wars," however, helped Disney almost double its studio operating income to $1 billion in its first-quarter earnings report, which it released Tuesday.

In its best quarterly earnings ever, Disney's earnings per share jumped to $1.73 a share from $1.27 a share in the same quarter last year.

Some investors have blindly trusted Wall Street's "buy the dips" mantra ever since 2009. And companies have obliged by spending some $2.3 trillion on stock buybacks since then.

The Tesla stock price is down over 25% this month, and analysts have been quick to slash their price targets.

The rocky bear market isn't helping either, and shareholders are wondering if this is the time to sell before earnings are announced on Feb. 10.

Market Crash

The Market Crash Will Start by June 20

Today I am issuing an official Super Crash Warning. That means we are on the verge of a serious market crash in the near future, which I now predict will hit by summer, June 20, 2016, and it's not going to be a good one.

It must seem like I never have any good news for you, but it's my job to see the world as it is, not as I'd like it to be. And what I see is things getting worse by the day…

What to Do Now If You're Short Twitter Stock

Stifel Nicolaus analysts made headlines when they recently downgraded Twitter, noting that they were returning their rating to "where it should have been all along – Sell." Other analysts are piling on.

So the question for millions of investors becomes what to do now...
