Pixar, a division of the Walt Disney Company (DIS), has released 14 films in its history and all 14 have debuted at No. 1 at the box office.  "Monsters University" is the latest, after taking in more than $82 million in its opening weekend. One of the keys to Pixar/Disney's success: consistency. 

In this installment of Stock of the Day, Motley Fool analyst Jason Moser discusses how the company is able to build on the success of the movies by leveraging characters from the Pixar universe into Disney's theme parks, TV properties and more.

Earlier I commented on an inappropriate title for an MSN news item.  The title labeled Toby Keith as a racist.  Now I have to comment on another misleading title.  This is not a news story.  It's an blatant advertisement and truth in the news media should dictate that they can't hide an advertisement in a supposed news story about a TOP STOCK of the day story line.
