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, "Parks & Resorts division once again turned out to be the savior for Disney in first-quarter fiscal 2018. The company, whose shares have outperformed the industry in the past six months, delivered positive earnings surprise after missing the Zacks Consensus Estimate in the preceding quarter. However, the big take away from the quarter was top-line performance, which surpassed the consensus mark for the first time in six quarters. Further, Disney is acquiring majority of Twenty-First Century Fox’s assets, which includes its Film and Television studios accompanied by cable and international TV businesses. The deal provides a bout of fresh air to Disney, which for quite some time now has been jostling in the fast changing media landscape. The addition of Fox's rich library of movies and TV series would greatly enhance Disney’s prospects in the streaming service. However, falling subscribers at ESPN remain a concern." (2/16/2018)
- 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We continue to value Disney at $94 per share on a YE2018 basis, rating the stock Sell. Disney reported fiscal 1Q18 (calendar 4Q17) earnings for the period ending December 30, 2017 on Tuesday. Revenues rose +4% (including less than a percentage point of top-line benefit from the acquisition of BAMTech). This compares with our forecast for revenue growth of +5%. Operating income margins of 26% vs. 25% in the year-ago period were better than our 23% expectation, and adjusted EPS of $1.89, up from $1.55 in the year-ago period, was also better than expectations." (2/7/2018)
- 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We update estimates to factor in Disney CEO Bob Iger’s statement at an investor conference Sept. 7 that Disney’s EPS was likely to be comparable in F2017 to F2016, a step down from former guidance for modest growth." Disney’s stock dipped on the comments, along with the media group. But we read the reduced EPS outlook as mainly due to Hurricane Irma, meaning the EPS trim should largely come back in F2018. We didn’t see Iger raising any new secular concerns, although another presenter, Comcast, raised a form of secular concern with disclosure of expectations for up to 150,000 video sub losses in the Sept. quarter, due, in part to competition from skinny bundle SVOD services. But competition of this sort isn’t necessarily negative for Disney (or CBS, Fox, Tegna and TV stations), since they are largely in the online skinny bundles." (9/8/2017)
- 4. UBS Group AG analysts commented, "overblown," at least according to UBS's Doug Mitchelson, who maintains a Buy rating and $126 price target on Disney's stock.Disney recently announced its own direct-to-consumer OTT (over-the-top) service for ESPN along with its Disney/Pixar-branded content, Mitchelson commented. While management hasn't yet provided much information about the financial aspect of the service, a serious of reasonable assumptions support management's move.Overall, the analyst is estimating that incremental operating expenditure and lost revenue will hamper Disney's fiscal 2018 EBIT by only an incremental $270 million and another $200 million in the following year. Granted, while this figure appears to be "significant," (9/5/2017)

Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
