Disney’s performance in 4Q appears to be a continuation of recent trends, say analysts at BofA Securities in a research note. Advertising is improving sequentially but not necessarily rebounding, while theme park trends overall remain healthy. The entertainment giant’s short dispute with Charter Communications should have a minimal impact. “FY24 outlook is clearly more positive as it will reflect solid underlying momentum at parks and continued improvement in losses at DTC, ” say the analysts. CEO Bob Iger has made a lot of progress in his first year back, but more is needed in the second year. The analysts believe the near-term strategic priorities include NBA contract renewal, bringing in a strategic partner or partners for ESPN, settling streaming service Hulu’s ownership and any potential asset sales or restructuring.
Tesla (TSLA) is likely to report lower Q3 deliveries than previously expected due to the impact of factory downtime, with more downtime likely to come next year, Wedbush Securities said in a note on Friday.
