Disney Rakes in Flurry of Cash From <i>Frozen</i> -- But Can It Last?: StockTwits

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Disney's  (DIS) 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.

$DIS basically nails it.

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.

Just bought $DIS before earnings, which were great! Small rally after earnings but hold & watch. Slow and steady wins the race in this one!

Disney reported double-digit increases across all of its businesses and the highest quarterly earnings per share in company history -- as noted by Walt Disney Chairman Robert Iger in a statement.

$DIS Great beat with double digit growth across all segments. ALL segments. Now thats how you beat. Expect to see some upgrades near term.

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