Walt Disney

Shares of media and entertainment giant Walt Disney closed slightly lower Tuesday despite the company posting quarterly earnings and revenue that topped Wall Street's expectations.Some market watchers have criticized Disney's valuation, as it currently trades at a price-to-earnings ratio of about 25, trader Guy Adami said.

He noted that "there aren't a lot of Disneys out there." Trader Tim Seymour contended that Disney will fare well as more cable companies continue to offer custom packages, because its ESPN network is a valuable asset.
