What are analysts saying about World Wrestling Entertainment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about World Wrestling Entertainment stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Although World Wrestling Entertainment shares have comfortably outperformed the Zacks categorized industry in the past one year, the trend might reverse in the near term due to decline in earnings estimate for the first quarter and full year 2017. Recently, the company reported the fourth quarter of 2016 earnings, which came in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate after missing in the previous two quarters. However, continuous decline in pay-per-view and home entertainment revenues have been concern for investors. Competition in the entertainment video space has increased significantly and might become more intense in the coming days. Nevertheless, WWE is executing a five-part strategy to strengthen and expand the WWE Network, which includes creating new content, implementing programs that will have higher customer attraction and retention power, introducing new features, expanding distribution platforms and entering into new regions."

Based on FY17 guidance, we maintain our 2017 rev estimate at $785mm (up 8% y/y), but lower our EPS estimate to $0.57 (up 30% y/y, 11% below prior estimates) and we raise our capX estimate, owing to higher investments in programming and production facilities. Paying subs at 1/31/17 were 1.50mm (up 18% y/y), of which 1.11mm were US and 0.39mm were international. Total subs (including free trial period) at the same date were 1.68mm, up 15% y/y.
