Large Buying Action and Inflow of Money Witnessed in Walt Disney Company

09 February, 2017, 00:40 | Author: Celia Hoffman

Disney shares closed Tuesday down less than 1 percent to $109. (YUMC) reported that appointments of Joey Wat as President and Chief Operating Officer of Yum China, reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, Micky Pant, and Johnson Huang as General Manager of the Company's KFC business, reporting to Ms. Wat. DIS EVP, Control, Fin Plan & Tax WOODFORD BRENT also sold 1,728 shares, at a stock price of $106.95. The score shows the rating on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1=strong buy and 5=strong sell.

DIS was 1.28% to $107.61 in after-hours trading shortly after its earnings report was released. In Iger's 12 years at the helm of Disney, the company's shares have more than tripled in value, compared to roughly a doubling of the S&P 500. This is a positive change from Walt Disney Company (The)'s previous semiannual dividend of $0.71. In the most recent quarter, DIS cautioned that fiscal 2017 would bring modest earnings-per-share growth, mostly because of "comparability factors" to previous year. The High end of the Estimate is $16.43 Billion, while the Low end of the Estimate is $15.88 Billion.

Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp (CTSH), the consulting and business services provider reported revenues in the fourth-quarter ending in December soared 7.1% from a year ago to $3.5 billion.

Some analysts have warned, too, that DIS results have a high hurdle to jump on a year-over-year comparison. That missed the $15.3 billion average of analysts' estimates compiled by Bloomberg. For the past 5 years, the company's revenue has grown 6.3%, while the company's earnings per share has grown 17.9%. While the stock isn't a screaming buy here, the combination of a relatively attractive valuation, strong cash flows, and a healthy earnings growth outlook continue to make us long-term bullish. The average revenue estimate for the year ending September 2017 is $57.42B by 30 analysts.
