Last week Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock to a buy from a hold and raised its price target to $134. The next day, BMO Capital downgraded it to an underperform from market perform, and cut its price target to $88 a share.
Goldman stated that ESPN headwinds could subside in the near future. The key to Disney's stock, Cramer said, is that the market already assumed that ESPN will keep losing subscribers at a rate of approximately 2 percent.
Thus, Goldman thinks the risk-reward is favorable, as the weakness is already baked into the stock.
Goldman also cited Disney's film slate for 2018 as being strong, followed by its theme parks. Additionally, Goldman also believes the company would benefit the most from President Donald Trump's proposed corporate tax cuts.
BMO Capital acknowledged the sentiment has been more positive to Disney, but said the positive turn came too early. BMO thinks the Nielsen's monthly cable subscriber numbers could be down this year, and warned to not get too excited about box office numbers for Disney's new films.
BMO also worried that Wall Street wants Disney to make a big acquisition. It also said not to get too excited about Disney's prospects in 2018 if long-time CEO Bob Iger will be stepping down in the middle of the year.
Ultimately, Cramer found merit to the arguments from Goldman and BMO. However, the stock still remains remarkably cheap at just 16 times next year's earnings estimates, which is below the average stock of the S&P 500.
"That says the risk-reward is still in your favor and the bulls are right to bet on the future," Cramer said.
