The article examines the stock performance of Walt Disney Co. after the reorganization of the firm that was solidified by the departure of executive Nina Jacobson in the U.S. in 2006. Despite intense speculation on the Disney reorganization, the company's stock price has not declined in July 2006. This trend is attributed to the continued box-office strength of the Disney film "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" and investors' perceptions that the changes mark a long-term philosophical shift in the company.
