Out of 15 sell side analysts who monitor DIS, the consensus analyst rating on Disney is a Strong Buy
Please note that analyst forecasts are not recommendations, nor are they investment advice.
Philip Cusick, a bottom 10% analyst from JP Morgan reinstates DIS with a strong buy rating and maintains their DIS price target from $135.00 to $135.00, on Feb 13, 2023.
Following the release of the company's Q1 2023 earnings report on 2023/02/08, Cusick resumed his coverage on The Walt Disney Company with a Strong Buy rating and no change to his $135 price target.
He had the same price target until 2023/01/12, the analyst reminded investors, when he temporarily suspended rating the stock because of a period of restriction.
With Disney's Park's better profitability and lower direct-to-consumer losses, the company reported "strong" Q1 results, Cusick said.
His Strong Buy rating "is driven by continued strength at Disney’s theme-park segment—domestically and internationally—in spite of a potential slowdown because of macro uncertainty,” the analyst continued.
Cusick also made the following points:
“While we are cautious on the media landscape overall due to sustained streaming losses and advertising headwinds,” the analyst wrote to conclude his note, “Disney is our favorite name among the group because of the company’s strong asset mix and what we expect to be a rapid decline in streaming losses in the next year.”
For Q1 2023, The Walt Disney reported:
Management did not provide financial guidance in its press release or earnings call.
CEO Robert A. Iger commented: “After a solid first quarter, we are embarking on a significant transformation, one that will maximize the potential of our world-class creative teams and our unparalleled brands and franchises.
“We believe the work we are doing to reshape our company around creativity while reducing expenses, will lead to sustained growth and profitability for our streaming business, better position us to weather future disruption and global economic challenges, and deliver value for our shareholders.”
