Disney Stock: Lots Of Questions This Week
Sure, there is a positive outlook for DIS; however, there are a lot of Disney stock questions, too…
For Disney investors and fans alike, the quarterly financial call has become a spectator sport.
Yes, investors are interested in the nuts and bolts of it all, but more and more these calls tend to belly future planning and sometimes even franchise storytelling – insomuch as those details help bolster opinion about The Mouse’s standing on Wall Street.
However, rarely will a second-quarter investors call garner as much attention as this Thursday’s webcast out of Burbank.
Thursday: All Ears On Burbank
Of course, The Motley Fool’s Rick Munarriz sets up this week with some analysis. And while he sees some reason to keep expectations in check, he also sees reason for Disney fans and investors alike to remain hopeful.
That said, he does say that The Walt Disney Company can no longer rely on Disney+ to carry the weight of the conglomerate.
“[N]ow it’s time for other segments to start carrying their own weight,” he wrote on May 10. “With Disneyland finally reopening in April and Disney movies returning to the multiplex in March investors are ready to weigh the bellwether on more than just a fast-growing streaming video platform that won’t be profitable until 2024.”
Key Points Of Interest: Disney Stock Questions
The look ahead should be a lot kinder than the look back. Disney’s slate of theatrical releases will start picking up with the live-action Cruella origin story later this month. Restrictions are starting to lift at Disney World, and it’s quite possible that capacity restraints will be eased heading into the telltale summer travel season. Even Disney’s cruise ships… could be eyeing a resumption of travel in the coming months.
Rick also added that the rise of the subsets above might mitigate any slowing of momentum at Disney+
However, The Motley Fool analyst also posted a number of questions, all of which will be of interest to anyone who visits a Disney park.
Those queries and the even-handed prelude to this week’s quarterly call make Munarriz’s piece a good, and important, read.
