In Time Warner’s (NYSE: TWX  ) pantheon of DC Comics characters, none stand so tall as Superman and Batman. But what about Wonder Woman? The Amazon princess could out-earn Man of Steel if given a real chance by Warner executives, says Fool contributor Tim Beyers in the following video. The right story would take advantage of the viewing public’s fascination not only with Greek mythology but also powerful women. Look at The Hunger Games. Jennifer Lawrence’s appeal as bow-wielding heroine Katniss Everdeen earned nearly $700 million at the worldwide box office for Lions Gate (NYSE: LGF  ) .

Sure, it’s been a great year for Dr. Pepper Snapple. It’s gained 21% so far this year, easily besting PepsiCo’s 6.5% rise, Monster Beverages 6.9% advance and Coca-Cola’s 1.4 % increase. Now, however, it’s time for Dr. Pepper’s shares to “take a breather,” explain Citigroup’s Wendy Nicholson and Peter Chun: Dr. Pepper Snapple has appreciated 22% year-to-date, far outpacing Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Monster Beverage and the S&P500.

With this big move in the stock now behind us, we downgradeDr. Pepper Snapple to a Neutral rating. Our reasons for the downgrade are … Continue reading
