Perfect Score

If you're one of the Mouse's stockholder, rejoice.

The Walt Disney Company: The Only Mega Cap With A Perfect Piotroski F-Score

There are currently 163 stocks in our database with a market cap greater than 50 billion. Out of the 163 stocks only one has a Perfect Piotroski F-Score of 9, and that stock is the Walt Disney Company. ...

The Piotroski F-Score is a score from 0 to 9 that measures overall fundamental health of a company. It is calculated by awarding one point for each of 9 conditions that the stock passes. The conditions are as follows:

Most recent Yearly Net Income > 0​
Yearly Cash Flow from Operations > 0
ROA has increased year over year
Cash Flow from Operations > Net Income
Long-term Debt to Assets has decreased year over year
Current Ratio has increased year over year
No new shares were issued in the last year
Gross Margin has increased year over year
Asset turnover has increased year over year ...

Experts point out that it's almost impossible for a large company to score a perfect 9 for any stretch of time. Conditions change. But damn, conditions are currently real good.

...Disney has a slightly lower price to sales, a much lower PE, a higher sales growth trailing 12 months, a much lower price to book, and a much higher analyst expected 5-year growth rate than the average of companies with a market cap greater than 100 billion and not including financial stocks. ...

What they're saying is Walt's place is a "buy."
