Walt Disney Dividend

Sector: Communication Services

Industry: Entertainment

Walt Disney (DIS) had paid a dividend since 1977 until “temporarily” suspending the dividend on 5/5/20 due to COVID-19.

Nobody has had more of its divisions hit by COVID-19.  Its theme parks, hotels & resorts, cruises, ESPN (live sports), and movies (theaters) have all been materially affected. The only short term bright spot was the ultra successful launch of their streaming service (Disney Plus).
