7 Top-Rated Media Buys

5. Walt Disney (DIS - Get Report) is a worldwide entertainment company operating in segments like media networks, resorts, studios, interactive media and consumer products.

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2011 was $9.08 billion, up 6% year-over-year compared to the previous year. Diluted EPS rose 2% during the same period. Overall, the company's media networks segment performed exceptionally well, registering 12% and 17% growth in revenue and operational income, respectively.

The company's operating cash flows for the first six months increased 23% to $3.1 billion over the same period prior year due to higher operating cash receipts from segments such as media networks, resorts and consumer products. However, free-cash flows came lower on higher capital expenditure as the company made final payment in relation to Disney Dream, resort expansions, and spending on theme parks. Total investments in parks, resorts and other property stood at $1.85 billion.
