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 increasing investments in ESPN+ and Disney+ are expected to hurt margins. Higher programming costs at ESPN due to increase in contractual rate for a few sports programs are anticipated to keep profits under pressure. Further, due to the ongoing investments, Disney anticipates DTCI operating loss to be higher in third-quarter fiscal 2019. Notably, shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, Avengers: Endgame tasted phenomenal success, which is expected to reflect in the company’s near-term top line. Currently, the film holds the record for the fastest earning $1-billion film globally, beating Avengers: Infinity War." (7/9/2019)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We update our model for the investor day and put our estimates at the high end of ’24E subscriber guidance for Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN +, although we view this as conservative as we think content cost guide is sufficient at this price point. We are ~2% above consensus on FY2Q19 earnings, see pg.2 for details. Sub guidance achievable and likely conservative despite lower spend per sub than Netflix. A key area of pushback we received on our bullishness towards Disney+ from Disney bears and Netflix bulls was content spend guidance is not high enough to meet the sub guidance. As seen in 3, we expect Disney to spend substantially less than Netflix (NFLX – on original programming and licensed content in aggregate, and modestly less on a per sub basis." (5/6/2019)
