What Is Affecting the Disney Stock?
Last quarter, the earnings results beat expectations with a firm number of joined subscribers. The data left Disney's competitor, Netflix, far behind the rally. This time, the company is set to repeat its success. Let's list the main reasons why this can happen.
First, the sites that track website traffic notice a substantial rise in activity over the previous quarter. Secondly, the company is genuinely excited about its 100th-anniversary celebration, which will begin during its annual D23 Expo fan event in September. That is, Disney's customers can expect more mind-blowing announces. It includes fresh Disney+, Pixar, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm updates. Thirdly, the company announced the start of the 2022 Disney Accelerator that will sponsor innovative companies worldwide this month.
The speculation around Disney’s Chief Executive Bob Chapek this year was probably the news that shook investors' confidence. He was widely criticized among Disney's LGBTQ employees and Republicans for his attitude towards Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' bill. Still, the board has extended Bob Chapek’s contract as he managed to support the company throughout the tough pandemic times.
The grim economic situation and rising inflation may be the next thing that the management of Disney will react to. The more uncertain the data, the weaker the stock will be. In the upcoming earnings report, we highly recommend you follow the company's strategy on entertainment parks and its outlook.
