Strong Revenue Growth Could Drive Disney Share Price Higher
The entertainment company has generated 34% year over year revenue growth in the final quarter of fiscal 2019. The full-year revenue grew 17% compared to the past year. The company’s strategy of transforming its business model by focusing on media networks, studio entertainment and direct to consumer segments is working.
Fortunately, the launch of the streaming service turned out to be the biggest catalyst for Disney. The company has generated 10 million subscribers in a single day. The market reports are showing almost 1 million subscribers addition on a daily basis.
Loop Capital predicts more than $1 billion in revenue addition from the streaming service. Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould says, “Looking at progress so far, Disney’s five-year target of 20M-30M domestic subscribers “appears to be quite conservative.”
Analysts Raised the Price Targets

On the other hand, Hedgeye analyst Andrew Freedman looks more optimistic about Disney share price performance. The analyst expects DIS shares to reach $200 level in the coming quarters. Overall, Disney appears like a good stock for value investors.
