Management Comments

The Chairman of Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution, Kareem Daniel, said, “Since launching two years ago, Disney+ has captured the hearts and imaginations of audiences around the world with its best-in-class originals and robust library of beloved films and series.”

Wall Street’s Take

Last month, J.P. Morgan (JPM) analyst Alexia Quadrani reiterated a Buy rating on the stock with a price target of $230 (32.1% upside potential).

The analyst has lowered her Disney+ subscribers estimate to 164 million from 185 million for 2022; to 210 million from 230 million for 2023; and to 235 million from 360 million for 2024 due to “conservatism given still so many unknowns on the rollout over the next few years.”

Analyst Recommendation

Overall, the stock has a Strong Buy consensus rating based on 15 Buys and 4 Holds. The average Walt Disney price target of $215.06 implies 23.7% upside potential. Shares have gained 24% over the past year.
