If you're a Star Wars fan, this is unquestionably a great time to be alive. With franchise owner Disney (NYSE:DIS) at the helm, it has the power and resources to expand the narrative to new frontiers. And it's doing exactly that, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi scheduled for release this December. That alone is enough to get excited about Disney stock.Source: Volodymyr Plysiuk / Shutterstock.com Of course, the Magic Kingdom isn't stopping there. The company's much-awaited streaming platform, Disney+, will soon launch with the headlining Star Wars-based live-action series, The Mandalorian. It follows the exploits of a bounty hunter in the style of Boba Fett, a fan favorite character. Written and created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian could help lift Disney+ past streaming rival Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX). And that would likely send DIS stock into hyperspace.Moreover, Disney is apparently having the effect that it badly wants. In Netflix's third-quarter earnings conference call, the streaming giant's management team acknowledged competitive difficulties. Although NFLX executives have admitted a "modest headwind" from DIS and streaming newcomer Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), I'm sure the conversations behind closed doors are much more vibrant.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsOn the surface, this tension seemingly bodes well for Disney stock. But breaking the binary dynamic between Disney's empire and Netflix's rebellion comes another unexpected player: AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC).In a stunning announcement, the cineplex operator will introduce a streaming video store for films that have just finished their theatrical run. More importantly, AMC has partnerships with the biggest Hollywood studios: Disney, AT&T's (NYSE:T) Warner Bros., Comcast's (NASDAQ:CMCSA) Universal, Sony (NYSE:SNE) and Viacom (NASDAQ:VIA, NASDAQ:VIAB), which owns Paramount. * The 10 Best Mutual Funds for Your 401k But will this end up cannibalizing DIS stock? For Disney Stock, Everything Centers on ContentOn the surface, the last thing streaming companies need is more competition. By increasing the number of (exclusive) options, for the end-consumer, you're killing what makes streaming beautiful.On average, a corded TV subscription costs more than $64. Cut the cord, though, and you're looking at compelling options. Netflix offers their basic plan at $9 and their premium at $16. On the other hand, Disney will start their monthly subscription price at a crazy-low $7. And Apple TV+ is going subterranean at $5 per month.But as the streaming customer adds up these services, the discount against cable becomes less meaningful. Plus, who has time to watch all this content?Therefore, AMC will definitely have an impact on the streaming landscape. But will it negatively affect DIS stock? I highly doubt it.For one thing, Disney partnered with AMC. Clearly, both sides see this as a symbiotic relationship. Second and more importantly, the deal emphasizes what matters most: content.From the cineplex industry's perspective, their revenue stream has flatlined. But what brings in the people are the big franchise movies like Star Wars. As I've argued before, DIS owns an enviable content empire, which should drive both box office sales and DIS stock.For the streaming component, Disney is also in an enviable position. According to Stephan Paternot, co-founder & CEO of Slated, the differentiating factor in the streaming wars is, again, content. Regarding this business, Paternot states, "All players, including AMC, will need to ramp up acquisition of content to attract and maintain subscribers."Such sentiment suits Disney stock perfectly. Although the company's prior acquisitions have been pricey, they were also focused. Disney recognized that they needed compelling content to win the next evolution in entertainment. They're merely practicing what they preach. Disney's Victim ListAs reality dictates, not all streaming relationships are symbiotic. Regarding AMC's news, I believe stakeholders of DIS stock can relax. The deal is good news for the two parties.But what about the rest of the pack? Notably, Netflix has the most to lose since they've long been the uncontested streaming player. While I do see risks, I think Netflix has some safety buffer. In recent years, the company has proven that their core catalyst lies well beyond the underlying streaming platform. * 7 Restaurant Stocks to Leave on Your Plate If Paternot is correct about his assessment, Netflix should get a reprieve: they offer brilliant original content.So, who will become streaming's losers? Frankly, I'm not feeling Apple TV+. Although its price point is attractive, the limited content volume is not. You're getting considerably more value from either Disney+ or Netflix.I'm also not getting a great read from Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) Prime Video. With so many options now with AMC in the mix, Prime Video appears largely superfluous.However, Apple and Amazon have their own core businesses, where as Disney is all about entertainment. With Disney+, management's long-term strategy is finally making sense. And that's great news for Disney stock.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto was long AMC, T and SNE.

(Bloomberg) -- The stakes are often high when Netflix Inc. reports results: Stock swings of 10% or more aren’t uncommon. But with the shares down more than a fifth since the streaming giant disappointed investors in July, the risk of another plunge may be lower this time around.When Netflix posts results after markets close Wednesday, analysts expect an increase of about 800,000 U.S. subscribers for the third quarter and about 6 million internationally. Whether or not the company hits those targets may depend on how much Netflix’s new programming resonated with viewers.The timing of Netflix’s latest shows probably helped subscriber growth, said Third Bridge’s Scott Kessler, who cited the new season of “Stranger Things” as a potential driver. Netflix also may have gotten a boost from a competitor’s show, HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” ending its run.Gerber Kawasaki Inc., a Netflix investor, also expects “a pop from the people moving from HBO and resubscribing,” thanks to “Stranger Things.”Still, Gerber investment adviser Nick Licouris said the firm has been reducing its position because of looming competition from Apple Inc., Walt Disney Co., AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. The Santa Monica, California-based wealth manager holds more than 12,000 shares valued at almost $3.7 million, according to a June regulatory filing.The earnings report this afternoon “is a heavily debated setup, the trickiest one in a while,” said Lynx Equity analysts KC Rajkumar and Jahanara Nissar. The firm called it “a high-wire act” where “much could go wrong.”Given that Netflix has been growing so much faster internationally, analysts will be eyeing the company’s progress -- and spending -- in key foreign markets.“We’re looking to see if there’s any meaningful traction with some of the lower-priced, mobile-only plans -- with India primarily,” Andy Hargreaves, a KeyBanc Capital analyst, said in an interview.Netflix itself predicted in July it would add a total of 7 million subscribers in the third quarter -- 800,000 in the U.S. and 6.2 million elsewhere.Read more: Netflix Investors Are Bracing for Another Disappointing QuarterMany investors may still be smarting from the company’s last quarterly report. Three months ago, Netflix posted disappointing second-quarter subscriber growth -- and a rare drop in the U.S. The shares slumped 10%.“It would be hard for it to be worse” this time, Hargreaves said, though investor concerns will persist as new streaming services increase the risk of higher subscriber churn or marketing costs, according to a note.Rosenblatt Securities predicts the company’s fourth-quarter subscriber guidance will miss Wall Street’s consensus, according to a note from analyst Bernie McTernan. He expects the forecast to “be treated with greater than normal skepticism” given that Netflix is reporting weeks before the launch of competing offerings, such as Disney+.“Netflix has never faced this level of competition from a new entrant,” he wrote.And although Netflix remains the largest short in the film and entertainment sector, “short sellers have been slowly trimming their exposure,” according to financial analytics firm S3 Partners. The streaming service’s short interest totals $6.2 billion with almost 22 million shares shorted and about 1.8 million shares covered since the beginning of August, the firm said.Gerber’s Licouris sees room for both a Netflix and Disney+, but warns that “at some point, it becomes extremely saturated.”On Tuesday, for example, the largest U.S. theater chain, AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc., announced a new service that would give U.S. subscribers online access to nearly 2,000 movies for rent or purchase.See also: Netflix Earnings-Linked Options Lean Bullish in Run-Up to ReportWhat Bloomberg Intelligence Says:Netflix will not only have to exceed its guidance for 7 million subscriber additions but also deliver a healthy 4Q forecast to allay concerns that have dogged the company.-- Geetha Ranganathan, senior media analyst-- Click here for the researchJust the Numbers3Q streaming paid net change estimate (Bloomberg MODL)3Q domestic +798,3603Q international +6 million3Q revenue estimate $5.25 billion (Bloomberg data)3Q GAAP EPS estimate $1.05 (range $1 to $1.23)4Q streaming paid net change estimate (Bloomberg MODL)4Q domestic +1.28 million4Q international +8.04 million4Q revenue estimate $5.51 billion (range $5.40 billion to $5.70 billion)4Q GAAP EPS estimate 82c (range 44c to $1.12)Data31 buys, 10 holds, 4 sells; avg.

Imperial Capital analyst David Miller said AMC Theatres new streaming service for its loyalty program members will likely spur more loyalty from those customers and may help the company take market share from competitors. "In general, more services tacked on to loyalty programs in price elastic businesses tend to, more often than not, foster more loyalty," Miller wrote in a note to clients. "That has been the case over the years in the airline industry as airline loyalty programs have grown more sophisticated." Miller said his initial reaction to the news was negative. AMC said the more than 20 million U.S. households that are AMC Stubs members can now stream more than 2,000 films on its mobile app, and/or a Roku device on demand and receive points against their Stubs memberships, that can be used in-theater. That seemed to encourage them to stay at home to watch films, the exact opposite of what cinemas are trying to persuade them to do. But he changed his view on seeing the positive market response and realizing that the company is using its loyalty program as a distribution network for the first time. "'AMC Theaters on Demand' now has the opportunity not only to promote various trailers for upcoming films in the theater, but also to promote new theater/re-seating renovations and/or MacGuffins Wine Bar features at select locations," he wrote. The analyst is sticking with his outperform rating on the stock and $21 price target. AMC shares were up 2% premarket, but have fallen 25% in 2019, while the S&P 500 has gained 19.5%.
