NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Disney's (DIS - Get Report) quarter had a happy ending, thanks in part to the success of its latest animated princess musical Frozen. And investors on StockTwits.com were singing the stock's praises Tuesday night. Disney closed at $81.03 last night.
The company reported after the close Tuesday. It posted second quarter earnings per share of $1.11, excluding non-recurring items. That was a 40% increase from the same period a year ago and easily beat consensus estimates of 95 cents. Revenue rose 10% to $11.65 billion. Wall Street had expected $11.2 billion, according to the Analyst Ratings Network. Disney shares edged half-a-percent higher in the after hours market following a brutal trading day that bathed the StockTwits' heat map in red. Investors called for shares to rise tomorrow after Tuesday's dust settled. Sentiment is 87% bullish, according to StockTwits analytics.

@harmongreg I love the Mouse! Take your fundamentals- Add Star Wars- More Avengers, More Marvel and drumroll- The SEC Network/ESPN = 100+ ?

Studio revenue jumped 35%, driven by higher unit sales of Frozen compared to Disney's prior animated title Wreck-It Ralph.
