What are Wall Street analysts saying about Walt Disney stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Walt Disney stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Disney’s strong film slate is expected to boost its Studio Entertainment segment results. Recently released Captain Marvel became the third-highest domestic release of all times in the month of March and the seventh highest MCU debut film. Additionally, future releases including Avengers 4 may aid top-line growth. Moreover, with the completion of Fox’s acquisition, Disney can strengthen its TV slate and expand its international presence and DTC offerings. Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+, supported by content strength from Disney and Fox, may give tough competition to Netflix and Amazon. Notably, shares have outperformed the industry over the past year. However, higher programming costs at ESPN and heavy investments in streaming services continue to hurt profitability. Moreover, softness experienced in tourism in China negatively impacted Shanghai Disney Resort results." (4/15/2019)
