Me too! I only got one for me and one for sis, but those were much better prices than they are now. lol

Pretty much ALWAYS buy for the long term.

(I've held Disney for a long while already. I expect the 'long stall' to end soon.)

I get come on offers every now and then to purchase another one, but I donít like the new design nearly as much as the one I have.

Edit: when I looked at the new ďstockĒ, it appears itís not a real stock certificate, itís only a certificate denoting youíre an owner.
Disney had way too many people that owned one share only... they had to mail proxy info for voting, dividends, etc. to thousands of people that had one share only... for the graphics. Which were very cool by the way! But it was way too expensive so they went Book Entry only. The new "certificate" isn't really a share of stock, but it is available to shareholders only, and you can hang it on the wall. But everything regarding shares is electronic. Other companies did this too... but Disney with the cool cartoon was by far the most popular singular shares.

The funny thing is that if they just announced 5ish years ago when they dropped the paper stocks that you could still order a custom fake certificate to go with an electronic stock purchase, then nobody would have cared. I would have rathered that actually
