What are analysts saying about Walt Disney Co stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Walt Disney Co stock:

  • 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We are raising our PT on Disney to $128 (from $118) and upgrading shares to BUY from NEUTRAL. While shares have appreciated from their 2016 relative valuation lows, we still see strong potential upside to relatively conservative estimates and anticipate valuation multiple expansion as the company enters another robust film, consumer products and parks expansion cycle. We maintain our more cautious view of the Networks business (for both DIS and the broader media industry), but believe adequate conservatism is reflected in consensus estimates, particularly given the company's inclusion in all new video bundles established over the past two years." (3/14/2017)
  • 2. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "Sentiment and stock performance has turned positive as investors: 1) feel better about ESPN sub trends after positive comments from management on the last earnings call; and 2) look ahead to a robust F2018 film slate. We think this positive turn comes too early and the risk/reward skews negatively (our target is $88, upside scenario $110, downside is $70). We still see more negative data points than positive for ESPN and believe consensus Studio estimates embed better performance per film, which is a key risk, in our opinion." (1/18/2017)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Disney’s primary cash cow, ESPN, has been under immense pressure as the Pay-TV landscape continues to change owing to migration of subscribers to online TV. Waning subscriptions will have a telling effect on the network’s ad revenues. Falling subscriber base and higher programming costs of these businesses have been a cause of worry for quite some time now. However, if we go by speculations ESPN is planning to sell its own streaming live TV package directly to customers. In an effort to attract online viewers and bring back the golden days of ESPN, the company has inked a deal with video streaming, data analytics as well as commerce management company BAMTech. On the other hand, sturdy movie business due to recent blockbusters and strong performance of its Parks & Resorts division continues to provide cushion to the stock. Disney is in the process of rolling out more themed attractions in parks and resorts." (10/19/2016)
