    Anyone know the best place to buy a share in Disney?

    If I buy enough, maybe I'll get to call the shots.

    Uh, at just about any brokerage? :p

    Good for you for developing an interest in your financial future as a result of the acquisition, though!

    I wouldn't invest too heavily in this at this point in time, given how little we know about it.

    Disney is a cash cow anyway; I don't know that you'd make a huge return after Episode VII comes out, any more than you would now.

    Any stock market-involved thang.

    In the same way that if you buy shares of viacom you own any paramount film or shares of comcast you own a universal film, yeah, I guess.......

    But why would you buy shares unless you bought a lot? To buy a lot is the only way you will make significant money. To buy a lot you need a lot of money. Only if you bought A LOT would you be able to control the new direction of SW and Disney.

    A share of common stock entitles you to a pro rata share of the equity interest in the company as a whole and not any divisible portion of it. Disney, however, could create a derivative or some other class of stock that may be based off Star Wars revenue stream.

    In Soviet Russia, Disney owns piece of YOU! Wait. They do here in the USA, too

    I work for Disney. Sometimes I think how great it is to work for the company that does Pixar, Marvel, Muppets, and Star Wars.

    But then I get depressed because I don't get to work on any creative projects at all, just garbage TV.

    They have a nice stock matching plan, but I don't make enough money to really invest in it and pay my rent.

    Disney informed their major stockholders to expect a loss for the next two years arising from the LucasFilm aquisition. Once 2015 rolls around, they are fully expecting a windfall.

    Apparently, one of the few Jedi powers that hasn't yet been shown on screen is their ability to make it rain.
