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 is expected to benefit from its solid slate of theatrical releases in fiscal 2020. Its upcoming movies, including Mulan, Free Guy and Black Widow, are anticipated to aid Studio Entertainment top line. Moreover, growing popularity of Disney+ makes it a key catalyst for the company’s prospects owing to a strong content portfolio and a cheaper bundle offering. Notably, Disney+ is set for launch in India on Mar 29 through Hotstar and in Western Europe on Mar 24. However, the company anticipates higher operating losses in the DTC & International segment due to the ongoing investments in Disney+ and the consolidation of Hulu. Moreover, closure of Shanghai and Hong Kong parks due to coronavirus is expected to negatively impact profitability. Notably, Disney’s shares have underperformed the industry in the past year." (3/4/2020)
  • 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)
