The Walt Disney Stock Price Is Stable After Substantial Revenue Growth

Disney’s Streaming Service Isn’t Coming to Popular Streaming Devices

The Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS) stock price remains stable after positing high double-digit growth in revenues. Its earnings declined sharply from the previous period due to restructuring costs and investments in growth opportunities.

Fortunately, investors are particularly focusing on Disney’s growth prospects instead of earnings.

The Walt Disney stock price is currently trading around $132, down from a 52-weeks high of $147 a share. Analysts believe strong revenue growth along with the potential launch of Disney streaming service is likely to drive the share price higher in the coming days.
