    Walt Disney World's reign at the top of the theme park food chain continues, thanks to the help of its Pandora — The World of Avatar land that opened in summer 2017 at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. The study provides a peek at the potential attendance for theme parks like The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) and Universal Parks & Resorts that do not publicly share their annual attendance. The study shows that Disney's Orlando parks welcomed a total of 58.2 million visitors last year, up 4.3% from 55.8 million in 2017.

    Italy imposes restrictions on Sky over Mediaset pay-TV deal

    Italy's antitrust regulator will impose a three-year ban on Sky's Italian unit from distributing exclusive contents on its online video-streaming service platform, it said on Wednesday. The move follows a deal between Sky Italia and Italy's biggest commercial broadcaster, Mediaset, which the regulator said would further limit competition in a market where Sky Italia is already a dominant player. Mediaset said last year it was selling its digital terrestrial pay-TV assets, known as R2, to Sky Italia as part of a broader content agreement between the two broadcasters.

    Comcast building in-home device focused on users' health

    Update May 21, 2019, 5 p.m.: This story has been updated to reflect clarifications from Comcast that the device is not a smart speaker similar to Amazon's Echo device, and is "purpose-built to be a sensor that detects motion," that has no role beyond health, per a Comcast spokesperson. Comcast is working on a motion-sensor device for the home that would focus on improving users' health care, CNBC first reported Tuesday, citing two sources with direct knowledge of the project. The outlet, which is owned by Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA), initially reported the Philadelphia-based media giant is in the midst of developing a device similar to Amazon's Echo or Google's Home line of devices, but with a few big differences.

  • The Sprint Stock Rally Means Nothing With No T-Mobile Merger

    The Sprint Stock Rally Means Nothing With No T-Mobile Merger

    Until FCC chair Ajit Pai spoke on May 20, Sprint (NYSE:S) stock had been stuck at $6 for over a year. That's because in April, 2018, T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) offered $6.62 per share to buy it. The all-stock deal was struck with T-Mobile at $64.52 per share. At the May 17 opening price of $75.38 for TMUS, the buyout is now worth $7.73 per share.Source: Shutterstock But none of that matters if the deal isn't done. Sprint was practically begging regulators to sign off on it in its latest quarterly report. On May 21 there are conflicting reports about the Department of Justice's attitude, some saying it's a yes, others a no.Pai's signal that he would support the merger S stock up more than 20% as trading opened yesterday, and it kept most of those gains, closing at $7.34. But T-Mobile also rose, so Sprint's value on May 21 is over $8 if the buyout goes through.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Sprint Without T-MobileSprint lost 189,000 postpaid subscribers during its most recent quarter, along with $2.17 billion, 53 cents per share. It's the kind of news most companies bury in a press release. Sprint highlighted it. * 7 Battery Stocks for High-Powered Gains Without T-Mobile, Sprint still generated $10.4 billion in operating cash flow during fiscal 2019, ending the year with over $7 billion in cash. Sprint also reduced its debt by $2 billion during the year, to $35.36 billion, against assets of $84.1 billion.The problem is that Sprint must invest heavily to justify its spectrum investment and prepare for 5G. The company spent nearly $5 billion on the network during the year, up from $3.3 billion, so total free cash flow for the year was negative $914 million.InvestorPlace's Chris Lau notes that this means the company's plan for installing smaller cells on phone poles instead of leased towers continues. Some 30,000 have been deployed so far, meaning 80% of its precious 2.5 MHz spectrum is now sectorized in this way.But most analysts are taking the company line that Sprint's prospects are grim unless the deal gets done. Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), which has been selling WiFi-based mobile under its Xfinity brand, could step in, but probably at a lower price than T-Mobile is paying.Sprint made other mistakes during the last decade, going with WiMAX technology instead of LTE for 4G service, writing off $30 billion in shutting the old Nextel network, and sitting out the 600 MHz auction in 2016, leaving it without low-band spectrum.If the deal is cancelled, some see the stock going to $3. T-Mobile Without SprintWithout Sprint, T-Mobile still looks healthy. Its own quarterly report showed net additions of 1.7 million and net income of $908 million, $1.06 per share, on revenues of $11.08 billion. T-Mobile also cut its long-term debts during the year, from $12.1 to $10.95 billion, and reported positive free cash flow of $618 million.But many of T-Mobile's expansion plans have been frozen in place by the merger, whose deadline was extended again at the end of April. The Justice Department said only "the investigation continues" and merger opponents said the companies haven't shown it to be in the public interest.Odds that the deal goes through are now little more than 50-50 even though T-Mobile is already handing out big chunks of stock to executives in anticipation. Who Else?My guess is that, after a few drinks, you'll find AT&T (NYSE:T) and Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ) lobbyists chortling over this. The failure of this merger to launch would leave them each holding one-third of the U.S. wireless market, a dominant position against two much-smaller rivals.On the other hand, if the deal is rejected a larger company, like Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) or Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), could decide Sprint is cheap at $12 billion, its market cap at $3 per share. That would make the phone giants choke on those chortles. Despite their size and financial strength compared with Sprint and T-Mobile, the phone giants are tiny next to the likes of FANG. * 7 Stocks to Buy for Over 20% Upside Potential But you can't invest in fantasy. I will stay away from Sprint until there's more clarity. The best news is clarity should come soon.Dana Blankenhorn http://www.danablankenhorn.com is a financial and technology journalist.

  • Streaming Excitement Isn’t Enough to Keep Boosting Disney Stock

    Streaming Excitement Isn’t Enough to Keep Boosting Disney Stock

    It took a while, but Disney (NYSE:DIS) shares finally have moved. Disney stock traded sideways for nearly four years. But the launch of Disney+ last month sent the Disney soaring to new highs.Source: Baron Valium via FlickrAs it turns out, I was half-right. A week before the company announced the details of Disney+, I wrote that company's streaming move would shape the direction of DIS stock. I noted that if Disney, through its streaming efforts, could create even one-fourth of the value of Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), the Disney stock price would rise 20%.Both predictions turned out to be accurate. Of course, I also thought it would take years for Disney to prove the value of its streaming plans, and potentially for DIS stock to achieve those 20% gains. Instead, investors bought the plan immediately. Disney jumped over 11% on the first day, and it would take just a few more sessions to show that 20% increase.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks to Buy for Over 20% Upside Potential With those gains, however, the same problem arises: what moves DIS stock from here? CEO Bob Iger repeatedly has noted that earnings are going to take a hit from streaming in the near term. Even subscriber numbers likely won't be available until early next year. And the rest of the business is not performing well.Disney already has pulled back after the initial pop. I wouldn't be surprised if it returns to its rangebound ways for at least the rest of the year. Disney EarningsDIS didn't move much after earnings (adding 0.4% last week), which makes sense. For all the optimism about streaming, there are real challenges in the operating business which were highlighted in the fiscal second quarter report.Most notably, earnings per share fell 13% year-over-year on an adjusted basis. Revenue climbed 3% but all of the gains came from the assets acquired from Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ:FOX,FOXA). Excluding a modest amount of revenue from Hulu, who was consolidated onto Disney's earnings during the quarter, Disney revenue actually fell year-over-year.To be sure, spending behind ESPN+ and, to a lesser extent, Hulu pressured earnings. But the story at the moment is largely what it was. Media Networks operating income declined again, according to figures from the 10-Q. That's even with affiliate fees (payments from cable and satellite operators) increasing 4%. Those fees will decline at some point as subscriber counts continue to fall and contracts are renegotiated.The Parks business continues to be solid, though attendance was a bit light (including a decline at the international parks). Studio Entertainment revenue and operating income fell, due to a tough comparison against a Star Wars release the year before.Those numbers likely will be much better in Q3 thanks to the blowout success of Avengers:Endgame, but the segment remains choppy, if generally headed in the right direction.Overall, the quarter tells the same story Disney has for some time. ESPN remains a big worry. The rest of the business is growing, but not necessarily spectacularly so. There's certainly nothing in recent results to change that story. Streaming and Disney StockIf the legacy business doesn't inflect, the question is whether the streaming opportunity can move the stock higher, at least in coming quarters. It seems somewhat unlikely, if only because there's unlikely be much in the way of news.We know what the plans are going to be. For the rest of this year, at least, the argument is going to be over what streaming profits look like not in 2020, but more importantly 2022 and 2025. Is Disney a real competitor, or at least a complement to, Netflix? Will new services from Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and AT&T (NYSE:T) unit WarnerMedia be a threat? Is Disney+ a plan for families or, given properties like Star Wars and the Marvel Universe, broad enough for everyone?The answers to those questions will take years to play out, but most investors likely have taken their positions at this point. Certainly, investors are optimistic. But bear in mind that Disney stock added $24 billion in market value in one day when the details of the streaming plans were announced. DIS now trades at over 20x next year's earnings.That's a multiple based on streaming growth, and the fact that FY20 profits will be depressed. Investments behind the streaming effort, as well as the loss of high-margin licensing revenue as Disney pulls its content from other distributors (including Netflix), are going to hit earnings next year.That's fine. An investor can't argue, as I have, that Netflix can grow into its valuation, but that Disney is too expensive at 22x FY20 earnings. But the catch with Disney stock is that if optimism towards streaming grows, it likely comes at a cost to near-term earnings. What Moves DIS Higher?If cord-cutting accelerates, making streaming more valuable, Disney's existing properties will take a hit in terms of both affiliate fees and advertising revenue. If it doesn't, it's tougher to make the argument that Disney+ is worth more than what's already baked into the Disney stock price.Longer-term, that problem may not matter. Even with the sideways trading of the last few years, Disney has been a terrific investment. That might continue. But it's going to take time. It's exceedingly difficult to see a positive catalyst for Disney stock before 2020 at the earliest. And so DIS may resume its old ways until the streaming service has a chance to drive even more optimism.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
