If you have researched Disney and are satisfied it meets your selection criteria, then it's a good choice for you. We believe everyone should make their investment decisions based on their own analyses. Disney is a fine company, so if you're satisfied, then it's a good idea. If you're concerned, you might try posting a question or two in the Disney folder where it's specifically discussed.

Putting the bulk of your money in the index fund until you do further reading and gain some additional knowledge is a reasonable course of action. Keep on reading and keep on exploring. As you gain more investment education and confidence, your decisions will become much easier. We'll help on those issues you find confusing, but rarely will we offer specific recommendations or advice. The decisions we leave to you.
