Disney Trying To Woo Fox - Technology Stocks
Ayelet Wolf 5/24/2018 4:30:45 PM

Unless #Disney terminates it's agreements with other streaming providers like #Amazon and #Netflix, I don't see the value in having a standalone product featuring their films. Most are already available elsewhere, why would I sign up for yet another service $DIS

Netflix’s Price Increase Signals Original Content Isn’t Enough
BreakingBad News 10/9/2017 7:53:55 PM

Good comment thread. Yes, #Netflix has much to offer and a rabidly loyal customer base. But the financials can't be ignored either. And unlike TV networks, they can't make up additional revenue in advertising without alienating the very customers whose loyalty the company relies on to survive.

I believe the solution is to take a page from #Disney's book and focus more on licensing. Sure Disney made billions of people paying to see it's lovable princesses, and other cartoon characters, not to mention the Star Wars franchise. But they've many more billions off the licensing of these characters.

Netflix has come up with some really top tier original content for both adults and kids. Not to mention brought over some cancelled shows which already had cult followings. They should leverage these character with licensing opportunities and bring a much needed additional revenue stream. $NFLX $DIS

Disney’s ESPN Continues To Struggle With Lost Subscribers

Good question. The value of buying #StarWars made much more sense as it's in #Disney's wheelhouse with movie production, licensing, toys, etc. And that purchase has paid off in spades. But #ESPN? I don't see the value. I think they should spin it off.

I never understood the value proposition of #Disney buying #ESPN in the first place. Can someone explain to me why this made sense in the first place? Where are the synergies? $DIS

Never understood the value proposition for #Disney acquiring #ESPN. A divestment or spinoff would be a good idea. $DIS

I feel that a #Netlfix acquisition would be a smart decision. Given the fact that they have the content and infrastructure in place to support the high demand and traffic for #Disney's content. $DIS $NFLX

Yelp Inc. Surges, The Walt Disney Co Falls On Earnings
Gil Richards 8/10/2016 3:16:16 PM

#Disney's "Parks and Resorts revenue increased 6% to $4.4 billion." Not unusual to have a nice increase over the summer, but with all the bad PR they've received over their negligence in allowing an alligator to kill a visiting child, I expected $DIS's next quarter won't be nearly as impressive.

Is Disney A Very Good Stock?

Aren't you concerned about the fallout from the alligator attack on $DIS and #Disney's potential liability?

I hope that family sues #Disney for all it is worth. This should never have happened.

While all this is true, I assume #Disney $DIS will plummet now that toddlers are being eaten by alligators at their resorts. Tragic.
