Reportedly, Disney would double earnings by the end of 2024 on the back of drive from Marvel content helping its new streaming service, says Morgan Stanley. The company said Disney might double earnings per share from $6.50 in 2020 to $11–$12 in 2024 since it increases its Disney+ streaming customer base. In a note to clients, analyst Benjamin Swinburne said, “For all the complications of Disney’s business model changeover and the stock’s investment case, the strength of its content underpins all.” In addition, Marvel plays “possibly the most critical role” in putting up Disney+’s value for customers. So far this year, Disney’s stock climbed by almost 30%, following the company declared its new streaming service, Disney+.
This new service is planned to launch in November at the lower price of $6.99 per month without advertisements. In this year, Disney has found major success in releasing many recording-breaking movies. Disney’s release of Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame,” was stated the highest-grossing movie of all time. Though Disney deals with a large implementation challenge for its streaming service, the media titan’s content and brands give it a potential chance of success, stated Swinburne. Disney is counting on getting 60–90 Million Disney+ subscribers by the end of 2024 and Swinburne asserted as “Marvel has surpassed beyond fanboy demand to mass market” these aims are realistic.
