From time to time, we get some updates about how some of these changes have impacted the Company financially and what potential new changes might be on the horizon. We’re about to get more of those updates soon with Disney’s upcoming quarterly earnings call. And two days ahead of the call, things are changing with Disney’s stock.
During Disney’s most recent Investor Day conference, we got to hear about TONS of new shows and movies coming to Disney+ or theaters in the next few years.
And while Disneyland and some of Disney’s other theme parks around the world are currently closed, Disney World and other Disney theme parks are currently open. Taking all of this into account and with news of vaccines already starting to be distributed in the United States, one analyst has upgraded his rating of Disney’s stock.
When you think of Disney, you may only think about their movies, merchandise, and theme parks. But, Disney and some of its current or former leaders can be very much involved in the community and political matters as well.

During Disney’s last quarterly earnings call, we got to hear a bit more about Disney’s focus on its direct-to-consumer businesses and updates about Disney+.

Soon we’ll get to listen in on another quarterly earnings report that will give us an update on how things are looking financially for the Walt Disney Company right now, and Disney has just shared when this next earnings call will take place.

There’s a lot of change happening with Disney entertainment — most recently, we learned that Radio Disney would shut down early next year.

We’ve also seen large layoffs announced for the Parks, Experiences and Products division. But, today, just days ahead of Disney’s Virtual Investor Day, Disney stock is trading at some of the highest values its seen all year.
