Disney price target cut at UBS as company faces new streaming costs, impact of Hurricane Irma
Analysts at UBS lowered their 2017 and 2018 earnings estimates for Walt Disney Co. , also dropping the 12-month price target to $122 from $126 on Friday after Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger told investors that the company's earnings growth would be stagnant. During a Bank of America media, communications and entertainment conference on Thursday, Iger told those in attendance that 2017 earnings would be roughly in line with the prior year's earnings, lowering expectations from previous guidance of modest growth. Disney shares took a 5% slide during intraday trading on Thursday following Iger's comments. The lower earnings expectations, Iger said, are due, in part, to expenses tied to Disney's BAMTech investment for its stand alone streaming service and impacts Disney parks are seeing from Hurricane Irma. Lead UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson also mentioned in a note to investors lower ratings at Disney's ABC network and tough content and licensing comparisons. "Many investors are questioning how Disney's valuation can expand while estimates are coming down due to investments in the future," Mitchelson wrote, noting the irony as investors have demanded media companies stop licensing content and build streaming platforms of their own. "This is compounded by the uncertainty as to the pace of decline of the pay TV bundle and the impacts of video fragmentation. As Disney officially starts its streaming shift, Mitchelson said it's critical that ESPN demonstrate pricing power, that cable losses are shored up by virtual multichannel video programming distributors, that content and the parks business continues executing, and that Disney displays cost discipline. Disney shares have declined nearly 7% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 index is up 10% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up more than 10%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
