Factors Influencing the Stock
Disney’s popular content slate is aiding portfolio strength. The company’s animation flick Ralph Breaks the Internet reached the zenith of the top 10 weekend domestic box-office estimates. This helped Disney achieve the worldwide $7-billion mark year to date as of Dec 10.
Additionally, Mary Poppins Returns raked in $23.5 million at the domestic box office last week. Moreover, The Avengers: Infinity War had made a whopping $258 million domestically on the opening weekend itself. Further, Disney’s Black Panther alone generated $700 million in domestic sales to become the third-highest blockbuster in the United States.
Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War also significantly contributed to fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 Studio Entertainment revenues, which surged 50.2% year over year to $2.2 billion. Further, Disney’s line-up for the next year, including Captain Marvel, Dumbo, Aladdin, The Lion King, Toy Story 4 and the next Avengers film, is expected to deliver yet another year of massive hits.
