This final note on the way out, which I’ll set up by saying ticker symbol DIS, The Walt Disney Company, lost about a half percent today.

Not a big deal, but then there’s this: Disney has decided it’s gonna stop issuing actual paper stock certificates — as have many other companies, to be sure.

But how many of those had Bambi and Mickey and Donald Duck on ’em, huh?
