Disney (DIS) hit a new 52-week high of $44.05 on Wednesday after reporting strong first-quarter earnings on Tuesday after the close. In response to Disney's early price action on Wednesday, RealMoney's Gary Morrow wrote:

"A pullback from the $44.00 area would be healthy considering the big move. A logical support area to consider is around $41.25. A dip back down to this area would fill the breakaway gap left behind after this morning's open, but I doubt that Disney bulls will allow the stock to drop that much. More likely is a bit of back-and-forth movement over the next week or so, leading to a new base near $42.00. I don't expect the old highs to contain the stock for long, but a pullback may be needed before $44.00 is put in the rearview mirror."

As of the most-recent reporting period, Disney shows up in the portfolios of Mark Hillman at Hillman Capital, comprising 0.5% of the total, and is one of the top holdings of Mason Hawkins at Southeastern Asset Management, at 6.8% of the total portfolio.
