Results

Disney $DIS-0.6% revenue increased 3.8% year-over-year. The company generates revenue from two segments, media and entertainment and parks, experiences and products

Media and Entertainment segment revenue decreased 0.8% year-over-year to $14 billion. Analysts were expecting USD 14.36 billion.

Parks, Experiences & Products segment revenue increased 13% year-over-year to $8.33 billion. Analysts were expecting USD 8.25 billion.

This category includes, for example, the streaming service Disney+ or Hulu. Analysts expected the DTC segment to realise a loss of EUR 777.7 million. The DTC segment realized a loss of only USD 512 million. USD.

The number of Disney+ subscribers reached 146.1 million against expectations of 154.8 million.

Outlook

For fiscal year 2023, the company expects to spend USD 27 billion on content creation. Content creation expenditures typically account for approximately USD 30 billion. These savings are due in part to the termination of collaborations with certain writers and actors in connection with the Hollywood strikes.

Word from the CEO

CEO Robert Iger said, "This is my eighth month back in the CEO role and we have already made many important changes that are reducing costs and moving us toward surpassing our stated goal of saving $5.5 billion."

Analyst commentary

An analyst from Citi said, "While the number of DTC (Direct-to-Customer) subscribers fell short of analysts' expectations, but the results are broadly in line. Disney has indicated that the tipping point in terms of DTC should occur by the end of fiscal 2024."

An analyst from Vital Knowledge said, "Disney has done well in cutting costs, which helps shore up the bottom line even during a difficult period. It's nice to see a small loss from streaming, but that's offset by pressure in subscribers.

An analyst at Truist Securities said: 'The results include a profit that is above analysts' expectations but subscriber numbers are low.

The results are solid. I have $DIS-0.6% stock in my portfolio and now I will wait for the stock to start rising😁

Great job! Good luck!

Thanks :D

Nice results. But I'm still waiting for them to drop on occasion and I'll buy for less. Maybe I'll miss it after all.

Unfortunately, we rarely get it perfect 😁

I wouldn't expect much to fall any more from ATH you've got about -55% and those 78-87USD and then once we get steadily above 90USD then 90-100USD are pretty much strong supports for me. I'm not afraid to buy anywhere in those levels as I'm aiming for at least 130USD and higher. However, I probably wouldn't sell anyway... :)

Consideration with head and heel, at what level would you sell?

For me satisfaction,up in my opinion will go;) and then it will be even more satisfaction :)

I have no doubt:)

I'm just thinking I should have bought more at the time :D

For me its all ok trying to save the pity of those subscribers, but either way Disney will eventually go up I trust him.

I'm the same way🙏

Agreed, I'm also quite happy, it can be better but here hold it will be slower, I believe about it then but consistent growth. I'm still holding and maybe thinking I should have bought more for the $85 or so. 😁

If you're going to hold long term it probably doesn't matter if you buy 85 or 87.5😁 you'll want to sell anyway at 120,130,140,200 ? 😁 I kind of don't care about that anymore in that regard even though many times I know I'm going to buy and like hell of course the next day it still goes down maybe a dollar or two but I'm taking it as my tradition. 😁

You're so right, it's the way I want it, so if a dollar or two higher purchase it doesn't matter. But as you also write, more often than not, I also buy and it somehow goes a few dollars lower. 😁

For me, the results here are about right. Sure, it could be better every time, but it could also be worse. I'll continue to hold the stock.

Exactly, I hold the stock the same way in the long term, so it won't affect me personally.

I've been holding for a long time, too. It's still a great quality company.
