Is CBS Corporation (CBS) a Survivor?

Disney didn’t exactly hold up well, considering it dropped approximately 50% at its lowest point during the financial crisis. But that was still better than CBS and News Corp, which both dropped more than 60% at the time. Disney likely held up best thanks to its incredible diversification.

Though CBS is highly diversified, not many companies can hold a candle to Disney when it comes to diversification. Top-notch diversification, quality debt management, and brand recognition are likely to make Disney the safest and best long-term option in the group.

It’s easy to forget that The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) is more than just the House of Mouse. True, Disney amusement parks around the world hosted more than 121 million guests in 2011.
