What are Wall Street analysts saying about World Wrestling Entertainment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about World Wrestling Entertainment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "WWE’s focus on increasing original content, subscriber growth, rise in TV rights fees and monetization of video content across digital and direct-to-consumer platforms bode well. These led the stock to outpace the industry in a year. Although revenue fell short of the consensus mark in third-quarter 2018, earnings surpassed the same after missing in the preceding quarter. Notably, both the top and bottom lines improved year over year. Management envisions significant revenue growth in the final quarter with adjusted OIBDA in the band of $45-$55 million. However, we believe that fall in ticket sales during live events, lower number of live events, rising costs at WWE Network and stiff competition from other entertainment platforms may hurt profitability. Also, the company's media segment remains vulnerable to rising capital expenditures, content cost and operating expense." (1/21/2019)
  • 2. Citigroup Inc analysts commented, "Tilly’s (TLYS) reports 2Q results AMC 8/29. We believe that the company got e-comm/omni- channel back on track for BTS. Our checks suggest that positive brick & mortar traffic continued for the seventh consecutive Q. Relevant to industry laterals, Zumiez (ZUMZ) reported July comps +9.1%, which we believe was driven by traffic to a large extent and Urban Outfitters (URBN) recently reported positive traffic across regions. All of TLYS’ departments comped positively in May except for accessories (down lsd). With the restart of omni-channel systems, we believe overall digital performance improved over the -7.2% comp in 1Q, particularly given that monthly comps sequentially improved in 1Q and were up lsd in May. Omni-channel is gearing up with DTC fully turned on during 2Q for the beginning of BTS." (8/27/2018)
