MGM will acquire TV assets of 'Vanderpump Rules' producer Evolution Media
The TV production and distribution arm of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer said on Tuesday it's acquiring the assets of unscripted TV producer Evolution Media. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Evolution Media's roster of shows include hit reality shows such as "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" and "Vanderpump Rules," which air on Comcast Corp.-owned NBCUniversal's Bravo. After the deal, the company will operate as Evolution Media, an MGM company, and founder and Chief Executive Douglas Ross will become the company's president. "Doug and [Alex Baskin, president of programming and development] have been creating and producing hit series for decades," said MGM TV head Mark Burnett in a statement. "These guys have talent and drive and will help our MGM Television 'hit machine' to continue to grow and grow."

Verizon CEO says company is not eyeing deal to buy Disney
Verizon Communications Inc. Chief Executive Lowell McAdam told journalists during the annual media and technology summit in Sun Valley, Idaho that "No," the telecommunication and media company will not buy Walt Disney Co. , according to media reports. Last week the New York Post reported that rumors had been circling that Verizon was eyeing a purchase of the Mouse House empire. Analysts were quick to the denounce the report and now Verizon's chief executive has said the company isn't looking at a potential deal. Verizon recently completed its acquisition of Yahoo Inc.. And the narrative looming in the media industry has been that media companies would be attractive targets for tech and telecom companies. The industry has been waiting to see if Facebook Inc. , or Apple Inc. would look to acquire a media company to help their push into TV, and Verizon rival AT&T Inc. is currently in midst of a deal for Time Warner Inc. . Verizon shares have declined more than 19% in the year to date, while Disney shares are down less than 1% and the S&P 500 index is up 9% during the same period.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

GE's stock falls to pace Dow's losers, heads toward lowest 20-month low
Shares of General Electric Co. slid 3.7% in afternoon trade Thursday, on track to close at the lowest level since October 2015, after a downbeat analyst note from J.P. Morgan. Although the stock was the biggest percentage decliner among the Dow Jones Industrial Average's components, the $1.01 price decline was shaving just 7 points off the Dow, which was currently down 70 points. Since the Dow is a price-weighted index, GE shares have the least influence on the index's price because they are the lowest priced. A 1% move in GE's stock affects the Dow by 2 points, while a 1% move in Goldman Sachs Group Inc. shares , which are the highest priced in the Dow, would have a 16-point affect. On Thursday, the stock weighing the most on the Dow was Walt Disney Co.'s , which was losing $1.46, or 1.4%, to shave about 10 points off the Dow.

Disney's global theme parks saw attendance decline in 2016, but revenue increased
Walt Disney Co. shepherded fewer people through the gates of its theme parks around the world in 2016 compared with the year earlier, according to a report from independent group the Themed Entertainment Association. It's a rare slowdown for the largest theme park operator in North America, but attendance fell at all of Disney's parks except for Shanghai Disneyland, which hasn't been open a full year. It should be noted that Disney raised some ticket prices at its theme parks last year. While attendance at North American parks saw slight declines, with the Magic Kingdom attendance falling 0.5% and attendance at Disneyland down 1.8%, overseas parks suffered the greatest slide. Attendance at Disneyland Paris plunged 14.2% and at Disneyland Hong Kong attendance was down 10%. Nonetheless, revenue at Disney's parks and resorts increased 5% year-over-year in 2016 to $17 billion, though, that was just below FactSet's $17.2 billion consensus. Disney shares have gained nearly 3% in the year to date and more than 8% in the trailing 12-month period. By comparison, the S&P 500 index is up nearly 9% in the year and close to 16% in the last 12 months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 7% in the year and almost 19% over the last 12 months.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Movie theater stocks suffer after a disappointing Memorial Day weekend at the box office
Shares of movie exhibitors and theater chain operators were down Tuesday after the box office suffered its lowest 4-day Memorial Day weekend draw in 18 years. AMC Entertainment Corp. led the decline, falling nearly 5%, while IMAX Corp. fell 4%, Cinemark Holdings Inc. fell more than 2% and Marcus Corp. fell 2%. Regal Entertainment Group's was less severe, falling less than 1%. The box office brought in an estimated $179.0 million over the 4-day weekend, which is the lowest gross for the typically busy weekend since 1999, said ComScore analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Foot traffic at the multiplex, which has been relatively stagnant for years, disappointed over the weekend. Dergarabedian said the slate of movies so far this summer, aside from Walt Disney Co.'s "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," have been poor. Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" topped the holiday box office but received little help from critics, pulling in $77.0 million, according to ComScore estimates. The box office's other new comer, "Baywatch," distributed by Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures pulled in just $23.0 million. So far in the summer season, the box office is down 5.6% compared with the same time frame last year. "The pressure is on right now," Dergarabedian said, as the industry looks to June releases "Wonder Woman" from Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros., Disney's "Cars 3" and "Despicable Me 3" from Comcast Corp.-owned Universal Pictures. The S&P 500 index was flat during Tuesday trade.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.

Blame Dow industrials' late-sesion slump entirely on Boeing, 3M, Disney's stock
The Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading in negative territory late Wednesday afternoon, weighed down by a late-afternoon slump in shares of Boeing Co., Walt Disney Co., and 3M Co. The trio of Dow components combined were cutting about 45 points from the blue-chip gauge, which was off 50 points, or 0.2% at 20,924. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index traded near break-even levels, while the Nasdaq Composite was flirting with another record close, up 0.1% at 6,126. The downdraft for the Dow, which has been under pressure all day, accelerated on reports that Boeing halted flights for its fleet of 737 planes due to problems with its turbine engines. MarketWatch has not interdependently confirmed those reports. Meanwhile, Disney's shares were down after the company disappointed analysts' expectations late-Tuesday on revenues. Shares of 3M Co. were off 0.6%--the third worst performer on a point basis in the Dow. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Hulu hires AMC Networks executive Joel Stillerman to expand original content
Hulu announced on Wednesday it has tapped former AMC Networks Inc. executive Joel Stillerman as the streaming platforms newly created chief content officer. Stillerman, who was president of original programming and development at AMC, will be in charge of overseeing the growth of Hulu's content partnerships, acquisitions and expansion of its originals slate. Hulu, which is expected to soon launch a live streaming TV option, is a jointly owned by Walt Disney Co. , 21st Century Fox Inc. , Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Inc. . "Over the past several years we've grown our audience and our content offering exponentially, and now is the right time to add Joel's creative and strategic leadership to the team and drive the next phase of Hulu's content business," said Hulu Chief Executive Mike Hopkins in a statement. Competition for exclusive content in Hollywood has continued to increase as streaming platforms like Hulu and rivals Netflix Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. have invested more in content production, distribution and acquisition. Hulu, which is currently streaming an adaptation of Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale," made a splash last year with its first Golden Globe nomination for its comedy "Casual."

Disney beats 2Q profit forecasts
Walt Disney tops 2Q earnings expectations, misses revenue forecasts
Disney shares down 2% as quarterly revenue narrowly misses expectations
Shares of the Walt Disney Co. fell 2% late Tuesday after the media giant reported fiscal second-quarter per-share results above expectations but revenue came in a tad below forecasts. Disney said it earned $2.39 billion, or $1.50 a share, in the quarter, compared with $2.14 billion, or $1.30 a share, in the prior-year quarter. Excluding one-time items, Disney earned $1.50 a share, compared with $1.36 a share a year ago. Revenue rose to $13.34 billion, from $12.97 billion a year ago. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected the media giant to report adjusted earnings of $1.41 a share on sales of $13.41 billion. Disney's cable networks revenue for the quarter increased 3% to $4.1 billion and operating income decreased 3% to $1.8 billion, due to a decrease at ESPN, the company said in a statement. That decrease was due to higher programming costs, thanks to a shift in timing of College Football Playoff bowl games relative to Disney's fiscal quarter end and contractual rate increases for NBA programming. Disney's studio revenue was off 1%. Theatrical distribution results were comparable to the prior-year quarter, the company said. "The current quarter benefited from lower pre-release marketing costs and the strong performance of "Beauty and the Beast," but such benefits were offset by the performance of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Zootopia" in the prior-year quarter compared to "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and "Moana" in the current quarter.

Viacom shares fall more than 7%, leading broader media selloff
Viacom Inc. shares were down more than 7% in afternoon trade on Wednesday, leading the broader media sector in an afternoon sell off. Following Viacom, shares of AMC Networks Inc. were down nearly 6% and 20th Century Fox Inc. shares fell more than 5%. Shares of Walt Disney Co. and Comcast Corp. were down more than 2%. There was no clear reason for the sell off, but Evercore ISI analyst Vijay Jayant attributed it to rearing cord-cutting fears, as the industry shifts focus to streaming. Earlier on Wednesday Hulu, which is jointly owned by Disney, Fox, Comcast and Time Warner, launched the beta version of its live TV service and Akamai Media reported poor revenue outlook due to continued weakness in its media business. Viacom will report second-quarter earnings on Thursday and is expected to post lower year-over-year profit at 59 cents per share with slightly improved revenue of $3.03 billion, according to FactSet. Shares of Viacom have gained more than 12% in the year to date, while declining nearly 5% in the last 12 months. By comparison, the S&P 500 index has gained nearly 7% in the year and 16% during the prior 12-month period.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
