DIS Analysis

The Walt Disney Co. (DIS)

Shares declined by 1.9% over two days, or a -339% annual rate. The options position produced a 23.1% yield ond ebit for a +4,206% annual rate.


DIS publishes earnings on Tuesday after the closing bell.

I shall use the series of weekly options that trade for the last time 10 days hence, on May 19.

Implied volatility stands at 19%, which is 1.9 times the VIX, a measure of the volatility of the S&P 500 index.

DIS’s IV stands in the 52nd percentile of its annual range and the 76th percentile of its most recent broad movement.
