Walt Disney Company
Founder: Walt Disney
Walt Disney had started a contract with M. J. Winkler to produce comic strips that could be released in papers and eventually on T.V. The Steam Boat Willy (or the first Mickey Mouse cartoon) was released in a New York theater and had received a lot of attention. More cartoons had followed after this and eventually the business has moved to California on December 26, 1939. From there, arguments and downfalls had happened (ups and downs like every business) until Disney had become one of the most well known corporations in not only America but other countries as well.

Would I Invest?
Because this is a public corporation, I would definitely think about investing in it because it is so well known and I couldn't imagine why anyone wouldn't want to work with Disney. It's a fun and family based company that not only kids love, but adults too. I imagine that it pays well and treats it's employees with respect and it's a community that I'd like to be part of.
