When are Disney’s Q2 2023 earnings expected?

The Walt Disney Co., listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), is the largest media and broadcasting company in the world. The company is set to report its second quarter (Q2) earnings for 2023 on Wednesday the 10th of May 2023.

The Walt Disney Co. Q2 2023 earnings: What to expect?

Data compiled by Refinitiv data arrives at the following consensus estimates for the Q2 2023 results:

  • Revenue of $21.8bn for the quarter
  • Revenue to have increased 7.54% (from the prior year’s comparative period)
  • Earnings per share $0.99 (vs Earnings per share of $1.08 in the prior year’ comparative period)

Traders and investors alike will look to assess the influence on the business the return of CEO Bob Iger has had. Subscriber numbers for the Disney+ service could be negatively affected by the company’s failure to renew IPL India cricket broadcasting rights as well as an increase in subscription costs. The business will be hoping to see earnings supported by a continued post covid momentum in the Theme Park business, which saw revenue increase by almost 30% in 2023.

The share price of Disney continues to trade in a broad sideways price environment. Range trading between price levels might in turn be preferrable than trend following techniques at this stage. In the near term a break of the 100.60 level suggests 106.70 as the next upside resistance target.

    • I overheard a discussion between two friends and one was telling the other that Bitcoin is a scam and that a lot of people preached about the halving and how people could cashout from it. The other friend was trying to convince him to continue holding his asset but he refused and replied that nothing would stop him from selling the coins he's holding.  When I heard that man mentioned cashing out from the halving, I understood that he might know about Bitcoin but he's not properly enlightened concerning it. A lot of expectations were cut short after the halving event cause most people expected Bitcoin to set a new height of $80k but then it didn't even get close to the previous all time high and have reduced below $60k currently.  I think people shouldn't get discourage by that, though I didn't experience other halvings cause I had zero knowledge about Bitcoin then but i think something similar have occurred before in one of the previous halving where Bitcoin price didn't go up as expected but later traced back and went up after some period, a lot of people might begin to panic and sell their coins but I still see this an opportunity to buy more Bitcoin and for those who are not opportuned to do so, holding is the best option, please correct me if you think am wrong

    • Non-Playable Coin (NPC) is a weird and wonderful experiment that smashes together meme culture, NFTs, and DeFi. It's like someone threw a bunch of internet trends into a blender and hit puree. But hey, that's kind of what makes it interesting. So, NPC has a massive token supply - like, a whopping 7.9 billion. That's basically the entire global population. It's like they're trying to make ownership a thing for the masses. And then there's the Meme Fungible Token (MFT), which is like a token shape-shifter. It can switch between ERC20 and ERC1155 standards, making it a flexible little beast. So, is NPC the ultimate meme coin for the NFT generation just because it got listed on Bitget? Nah, let's not get ahead of ourselves. It's an innovative project, sure, but it's not the only game in town. There are other meme coin and NFT hybrid projects worth exploring. What do you think, folks? Is NPC a brilliant mashup of memes, NFTs, and DeFi, or just a fleeting fad? Share your thoughts in the comments!"
