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 top-line is expected to benefit from the solid line-up of big budget movies slated to be released over the next 18 months. Parks & Resorts segment continues to show robust performances both domestically and internationally owing to rise in customer spending, higher ticket prices and attendance. ESPN+, the company’s sports streaming service, achieved 1 million subscriber base milestone, which is positive for Disney’s upcoming direct-to-consumer service. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, Disney’s ongoing investments on its technology platform are expected to keep margins under pressure. Additionally, higher programming costs at ESPN remains a concern. Moreover, weakness in the Consumer Products & Interactive Media segment is a headwind." (10/1/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We are downgrading Disney stock from at this time, as the stock’s recent run-up fails to reflect that a higher price paid for Fox’s Entertainment assets would reduce the value of Disney to its shareholders. Alternately, the absence of completion of the transaction would also be negative for Disney as it would mean the company would be unable to realize the synergies it expects to produce from the transaction. The strategic position of the company would further be weakened relative to what would otherwise be possible without the transaction." (6/18/2018)
