    Disney Heads Toward Buyback

    Next up on incoming Disney (DIS:NYSE) CEO Bob Iger's hit list: selling radio assets, brokering a new deal with Pixar (PIXR:Nasdaq) and buying back shares.

    Sources say the Burbank, Calif., company is ready to announce plans to buy back a chunk of its shares, though specifics on the timing and volume of any buyback remain unclear.
    This is a snipit of the full article... But the Buyback of stock has not be discussed here at least... It is an attempt to bolster the stocks price which has sagged a bit... Although the shares have been up since Roy started working with Disney Management again... I guess they see it as good sign, eh?

    I used to own a blade of grass in the parking lot, but they bulldozed it to build CA.

    Sometimes that is a temporary support for the stock - there needs to be something a bit more... my gut says Bob announces something meaningful before and just after he takes over... he needs something more than just buying back stock..

    Sweet. I'm one step closer to figuring this site out. Thanks for the explanation. I guess I'll never be the boss. I live too far away to have an Annual Pass. But I am proud of my new stockholder status. Wait...now I'll have to start paying attention to the smart people stuff as well as the fun people stuff. More work for me. This bites.

    Sorry. Kind of an inside joke among Disneyphiles. AP (annual pass) holders can sometimes feel they possess extra privileges while they're at the park. Unfortunately, some bad apples have given AP holders a bad rep as pushy, demanding and rude.

Not a $100, framed commemmorative thing, but a $26.00 share of stock/piece of paper, whatever you get. Maybe he can get 1 a month or something. How would I....I mean, what should I tell Pete to do?
    Well if you don't want the frame (I am assuming you looked up OneShare.com), I recomend a super value brokerage where you can buy a share of stock and ask them to convert it to a certificate...

    This is actually a common question...

    I recomend Sharebuilder.com, because it is great if you just are starting out buying small amounts of stock... They have a Tuesday Market order system where you can purchase a share for $6. And because you are buying in street name, you can aquire ownership for less than one full share...

    However there are more than one brokerage that would be more than happy to do this for you...
