Who cares. Pumping up DIS stock is like pumping air into a tire with a two inch wide puncture. Until ESPN gets fixed this stock is as flat as a flat tire.
I am glad that ESPN backed out of their deal to own a part of DraftKings (or was it Fan Duel?).
But, on the other hand, this will mean that these enterprises will become a part of the frame work of sports and the media. The media will benefit from a lot of advertising from these enterprises. And, ESPN will gain an additional benefit because all those young people who are anxious to bet on all these sports will also need to watch it every second for every update on a consistent basis. And the only way to do that is to be able to watch it live. And the only way to watch it live is to get cable or some other package that has ESPN.
Take that you BTIG analyst who thinks paying money to be able to provide a real outlet for quality live sports is a horrible thing.
Everything they sign has to be paid for. Ad revenues need to be significant enough to cover those costs. So ratings and subscriptions need to be consistently high enough to be profitable.
There are websites like that. They should've bought TNF, people love tuning in to not just MNF but TNF to see if their players are getting things done.
Should it happen ESPN should devote live segments of every player as they score with live updates?
This would be huge,a lot of veiwers seem to be interested more in their player than their team? Idk just my 2 cents.
And compare the South Korea figures for Jungle Book so far with the South Korean figures for Zootopia - about $13 million to about $7 million. I'm not going to say that this ratio is going to continue (which would translate into a total of about $60 million for JB in S. Korea), but $40 million is possible (another $30 million), plus another $10 million here and elsewhere (which would mean a total of about $965 million before Japan opens. And Japan is going to do better than S Korea. These numbers could edge out Zootopia.
ha !!!!cramer again you are absolutely right on him its buy buy buy buy then 2 days later its short sell short sell wait a minute what did i say as he salivates looking down from the camera.if you an investor and relying on this guy just take your dough an throw it out of the window at least you can rest at night knowing someone below is having a good time with your money
Sentiment: Strong Buy
They could have $300 million by the end of the weekend. Box Office Mojo is suggesting a $80 - $100 million weekend. That seems awful strong, but it has done wonderful numbers on Monday (19.5), Tuesday (23!!) and Wednesday (18). That puts it at over $195 million, with a good chance of over $210 at the end of today. With $80 million this weekend, that would mean $290, and give it a chance of $400 million by the end of the July 4th weekend - these are monster numbers!!
They may be just too good to be true.
I wouldn't give up on Jungle Book. I think it will get at least another $15 million in South Korea, and it is still gleaning money elsewhere overseas. And it is still picking up money here. I bet it has at least $950 million when it opens in Japan on August 11th. Remember, it has done well in Asia.
Last thing I heard from the sheriffs office is that they were contipletting pressing charges against the parents. They also said Disney works very hard on staying on top the the habitat on their surroundings.
Game 7 had tremendous ratings, and your right dis has some pretty good sport contracts going forward. They also just signed the big ten for several years plus Monday night football will be here before you know it.
Disney is not worried,,, people will forget any of the shooting, killings and gator attacks in Orlando by July
unfortunately Disney INS company will pay it all,, Disney executive should criminally be charged,, they knew there was danger and posted no signs,,,, i guess they wanted the wealthy people to feel it was a beach,,well it was Jaws of the Florida lake
The market is at the high again,, was DISNEY not a $129 stock,,, hmmmm seems that is not in the Dow anymore since its not a mover,,, The dog of the dow is Disney
The markets will most likely collapse sometime this year…Are you prepared? Google LionStockAlerts, they only alert short term trades that work in any market…Do this now before it’s too late.
