15h valuewalk
In Part 1 and Part 2  of this series I covered 12 of the 30 Dow Jones Industrial Average stocks that I considered the most expensive of the index.  With this part 3 I will be looking at 6 additional Dow stocks that for the most part I would consider fully valued to only moderately overvalued.  What this suggests is that although I am not inclined to add new money at this point, I would not be anxious or worried about selling them at these levels either.

How Walt Disney Co Stock Is Drowning Under the Weight of ESPN

2017-10-19 investorplace
Think you know Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS)? It’s obviously the dominant name in kid-friendly films, and it operates the most magical theme parks on the planet. If you think the value of DIS stock is first and foremost a reflection of success (or failure) on those fronts though, think again. Its television properties like The Disney Channel, ABC and of course the beleaguered ESPN actually make up the organization’s biggest division (as measured by revenue), and this so-called Media Networks arm is also the biggest contributor to the bottom line.
