Walt Disney Company (The) (NYSE:DIS) was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a sell rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Disney shares have underperformed the industry in the past three months, primarily due to ongoing concerns regarding ESPN future. Identical to performances in the past few quarters, ESPN disappointed in the third quarter again. Further, the stock came under pressure after the company reported mixed third-quarter fiscal 2017 results, wherein earnings came in above the Zacks Consensus Estimate but revenues lagged the same for the fourth straight quarter. However, the company’s decision to terminate distribution agreement with Netflix for subscription streaming and having its own streaming services – one for Disney and Pixar brands and another for ESPN followers is likely to be driving factor in the long run. Further, in an effort to attract online viewers, Disney which had earlier acquired 33% stake BAMTech announced its intention to acquire another 42% stake in the firm. Moreover, movie and its Parks & Resorts business bode well.”
