I have a little more than 50 shares as well. I have had it since I was a little kid. it splt once which doubled my shares, and then I also am on the Dividend re-investment plan as well so I get another share of stock every 5 years or so.
if you aren't doing it you should it is really nice, and then you don't get some losy check for $3 every year. Just call shareholder services and they can enroll you right over the phone.

Wow-Disney Stock!! – 01-11-2012,11:08 AM
Just got listed as one of the top 10 stocks to buy and hold by MSN. So maybe I actually did something half-way smart in the big financial market. A few months after 9-11, I bought 50 shares of Disney stock, near its all-time low. So I did the "buy" part, and the "hold" part, I don't expect to be a problem-I have no plans to sell, barring a catastrophic need for money. Anyone else have Disney stock?
Buy and Hold........no.
But I Buy and Sell DIS quite often.
It's been on a heck of a run since last summer.
As of last week I'm not holding any, but I'm watching for pullbacks to add again.
Disney's a pretty solid company to own.
I think most segments of their business have bright prospects.
Plus it's just fun to own "The Mouse". (Makes those massive vacation expenditures seem more acceptable)*JEFF*

Both my son's were in college. I had just sold a piece of property I owned for 40K'ish. I believe DIS was at $12.50. I almost bought 4000 shares but I didn't want to tap home equity line or do PLUS loans for tuition, so I put 10K in something earning in the 8% range now and passed on the DIS.
I really can't kick myself in the butt over it, I knew DIS stock had to rebound eventually but I know I made the right decision paying tuition.

I have around 40 shares. I have owned more but I was buying and selling and I only have 40 right now.
I have some in my IRA and I am also in the ESPP (Employee Stock Purchase Program) although i don't buy new shares (except for the div reinvestments). I started in the ESPP in September 2001, after the stocks were split.
