View Financial Analysis: My Research 2013

I am comparing Discover Financial Services (DFS), Visa (V), and Mastercard (MA). And it looks like Visa will make a strong investment. 

As far as Verizon (VZ), the 10-year earnings history does not look good. AT&T's 10-year earnings history looks better.

Disney (DIS) seems like it has a Durable Competitive Advantage. They sell a product that hasn't changed - Mickey Mouse - generations after generations kids will always buy into Mickey and go to Disneyland. Their financial statements also looks good. But the stock is currently expensive.

 I also analyzed  Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) to see what the big fuss is about. It seems like GMCR has something unique. Coca-cola made a huge investment in GMCR and they were recently bought out by a hedge fund. 

As a side note, I also took a look at Lionsgate (LGF), but their 10 year earnings history, financial statements or balance sheet does not look good.
