Movie giant Disney had another massive year in 2018. With multiple weeks left to go in the year, Disney movies have collectively made more than $7 billion worldwide. Disney hit the milestone on December 9, according to Variety. This is just the second time ever that any movie studio has reached $7 billion in a year. The first studio to do it? You guessed it, Disney set the record with $7.6 billion in 2016. The movie industry's top movies of the year came from Disney. Avengers: Infinity War ($2 billion) was the No. 1 movie of 2018 based on box office performance, with Black Panther ($1.35 billion) following in second place. Universal's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ($1.3 billion) was No. 3, with Disney's The Incredibles 2 ($1.24 billion) at No. 4

It creates the possibility that your friendly neighborhood, and very lucrative, Spider-Man could appear in future films. The Deadpool franchise, which pushed…
This whipsaw action in the stock market has been the case all year. The United States in an economic war with the world and until recently we’ve had nothing but negative rhetoric about it. Moreover, we face the threat of an inverted yield curve in the United States. Considering the environment, and that the S&P 500 is struggling to stay flat, Disney stock has held its own — up 5% in a year.
There are a few big-name stocks which have held up well during the recent stock market rout. One of those names is Disney (NYSE:DIS). Disney stock is just 6% off its recent highs, while the S&P 500 and Dow Jones are both in correction territory.
The already high level of competition is expected to tighten as Walt Disney Co. and AT&T Inc. go live with their new streaming services next year, Germany’s DZ Bank AG said in note. For Netflix, more streaming options increases the risk of larger media players withdrawing attractive content in an effort to entice viewers. Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has veered his focus toward in-house productions to shift dependency, but DZ Bank still sees Netflix at a disadvantage given its already high level of debt and negative free cash flow.
Apple (AAPL) has seen its stock price plummet over 24% in the last three months as investors digest what's next for the tech powerhouse after it signaled that its days of insane iPhone growth are done. Now, the question is are Apple's days of substantial revenue growth over?

Walt Disney World has brought back its Christmas Tree Trail attraction to Disney Springs retail and entertainment complex for the third year. Guests visiting the marketplace can tour the mini holiday experience that includes falling snow, music, food and beverage and, of course, the signature themed Christmas trees.

The good news for Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU) from Cowen has the investment bank and financial services company naming it the best idea of 2019. Cowen also provided an update when speaking about Glu Mobile. It also increased the price target for Glu Mobile stock from $8.00 to $9.50.
Shares of Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) have been pulverized over the past few months, despite running an excellent business. One could argue that Roku shares were overvalued and many bulls would concede the fact that it wasn’t cheap. It’s why Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) has outperformed so much over the past five years and why Disney (NYSE:DIS), AT&T (NYSE:T), HBO, Showtime and countless others have been rolling out their own streaming services.
Netflix (NFLX) has been the leading global streaming company for a while now. The arrival of over-the-top (OTT) streaming services has led to a fall in traditional TV services in recent years. Netflix’s problem is compounded because these companies will be pulling their content from the streaming giant.
With only one “new” title opening wide in theaters this weekend — and that was a re-release of a 25-year-old movie — the domestic box-office charts looked pretty much the same as last weekend.

(NYSE: DIS) flick “Ralph Breaks the Internet” with $16 million and Universal's “The Grinch” with $15 million — mark the first time that two animated movies have topped the box office for two weeks in a row. Year-to-date, the 2018 domestic box office will pass $11 billion this week, marking the fastest that threshold has ever been reached.

The Walt Disney Co. knows how to tease its fans with just enough on its future Star Wars lands to create a frenzy. The theme park giant's Twitter account shared a picture on Nov. 7 that gives a quick look at the ongoing construction of the new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land opening at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland California next year. There's no detail on if the picture is from the Florida or California version, but ongoing work seen from beyond construction walls in Orlando show the work in still on pace for a fall 2019 opening.
