The Walt Disney Company reported a surprising decline in Disney+ subscribers for the second quarter, causing its stock to fall. Subscribers for the quarter ending in March were 157.8 million, which is significantly lower than the estimated 163.5 million and 2% down from the previous quarter. This was largely due to an 8% decrease in Disney+ Hotstar subscriptions, although core Disney+ subscriptions rose by 1% to 52.9 million.

Despite the fall in Disney+ subscribers, the company’s direct-to-consumer revenue, which includes streaming, rose by 12% to $5.5 billion, and the operating loss for this segment decreased from $700 million to $200 million. The average monthly revenue per paid Disney+ subscriber also increased by 13% to $5.64, reflecting recent price increases.

Other parts of the company saw growth as well. The media and entertainment distribution segment saw a 3% increase in sales to $14.04 billion, and revenue from parks, experiences, and products rose by a significant 17% to $7.78 billion.

Revenues for both the quarter and the first half of the year have shown growth. Quarterly revenue grew by 13% and six-month revenue by 10%.

Wall Street Action

  • Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Kraft has maintained a Buy rating and lowered the price target slightly from $135 to $131.

  • Credit Suisse’s Douglas Mitchelson has reiterated an Outperform rating on Walt Disney and maintains his $133 price target.


Looking at AnaChart it is worth noting that not a single analyst has explicitly been bearish on the stock since the very successful call of Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger in February of 2021.

Besides Juenger, all analysts kept a bullish look on Disney while the stock lost half of its value.
