Ever since Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS) launched Disney+ in late 2019, there's been lots of speculation about if and when it will overtake Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) as the world's most popular streamer. At the time of this writing, Netflix has approximately 220 million customers, while Disney+ has north of 137 million.
Warren Buffett once said that his "favorite holding period is forever." However, there are plenty of stocks that he doesn't even hold for five years. Why doesn't the legendary investor always live up to his ideal? Things change.
There are few certainties in life, and one of them is that a trip to Walt Disney's (NYSE: DIS) theme park resort in Florida isn't cheap. The "Disney World is too expensive" chant is making the rounds again, after social media and now major news outlets are rebroadcasting a deceptive chart showing how daily admissions at Disney World have far outpaced wages, rent, and gas. It's true -- as a New York Post headline claims -- that a one-day ticket to Disney World has soared 3,871% since the Magic Kingdom first unlocked its turnstiles more than 50 years ago.
