7 Stocks That Would Make Great Graduation Gifts - 1 of 7

#1 - Disney (NYSE:DIS)

Disney (NYSE:DIS) is one of my all-time favorite stocks for many reasons. But the company’s business model provides so many lessons for graduates. Those of us of a certain age can remember when DIS stock wasn’t an ideal growth stock. However, Disney was reinventing itself before that phrase became cliché.

Today’s graduates grew up watching The Disney Channel. They don’t remember a world without Pixar Films. And during the pandemic, it’s likely that many of them turned to Disney+ as a way of passing time. This concept of reinvention gives Disney multiple revenue streams; an attribute that helped the company weather the pandemic when their theme parks and cruise lines were not in operation. 

Disney suspended its dividend during the pandemic, but that will likely be reinstated as the company begins to fire on all cylinders. When the dividend comes back into play, it will be yet another compelling reason to buy and hold Disney shares.
