Based on the valuations of the various segments of the Walt Disney Co. (DIS), and using comparable P/E ratios and P/S ratios from related companies to back into a value of the segments, the stock would have a breakup value of about $65 per share. The segments analyzed were Cable Networks, Broadcasting, Parks & Resorts, Studio Entertainment, and Consumer Products. The stock valuation was averaged between earnings and sales ratio values. A 30% discount was applied to account for errors, forced sales, fluctuations in earnings or revenues prior to liquidation, etc.
Don't agree with me? That's great! I have published my analysis on Google (GOOG) Spreadsheets and it can be viewed here. So you can copy the data to an Excel spreadsheet and re-run the numbers with your own assumptions.
Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to post the spreadsheet to allow viewers to download it with formulas, without giving them full rights to change the worksheet. If I find a way, I will get it posted in a downloadable format.
