UPDATE.....

Dow Jones entertainment giant Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) may finally settle its long-standing board battle during its annual shareholder meeting scheduled for Wednesday.

Disney shareholders on Wednesday will vote on the makeup of the company's board of directors. The Dow giant has been battling against activist investors Trian Fund Management and Blackwells. Trian and Blackwells have campaigned for influence over the board.

Also, BofA on Monday raised its price target on Disney stock to $145 from $130 and kept a buy rating on the shares. The firm said theme park performance remains robust and projects operating income to grow in the low-to-mid teens in the second quarter. Disney in Q2 should continue its strong underlying momentum that was reported in Q1, while CEO Bob Iger appears to be in control and on a growth offensive, the BofA note said.

Last week, UBS hiked its price target on DIS stock to $140 from $120.

Analyst John Hodulik forecasts a 25% three-year compound annual growth rate for Disney earnings, and $9 billion in free cash flow for 2024. He sees that ballooning to $14 billion by 2026. The note also said free-cash-flow growth should support dividend growth, as well as ramp up stock buybacks and incremental investments.

UBS remains bullish on Disney stock with a buy rating, Hodulik wrote.

As well, Daiwa analyst Jonathan Kees on Monday said Disney's settlement with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis "removes a risk that has hung over the name." Daiwa maintained a buy rating on DIS stock with a $133 price target.

Why the Disney Weekly Options Trade was Originally Executed!

Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) shares rose more than 2% on Monday following a fresh upgrade on Wall Street. The shares have continued to move upwards since then.

Barclays analyst Kannan Venkateshwar upgraded the stock to Overweight from Equal Weight and boosted his price target on shares to $135 from the prior $95. The move implies roughly 15% upside based on current trading levels of about $120 a share.

Venkateshwar argued better-than-expected free cash flow and earnings guidance, coupled with "tactical tailwinds" such as the Hollywood strikes, Hulu's consolidation, and cost cuts, have helped buoy investor confidence.

Meanwhile, "the propensity among media investors to be long Disney, has resulted in the stock outperforming broader markets meaningfully thus far this year, at a pace faster than we anticipated."

"The incessant Disney-related news flow ahead of the proxy vote has dominated investor considerations since last quarter's earnings, and we expect this to continue helping the stock near term," said Barclays.

The stock has been on a tear since the start of the year, up more than 30% compared to the S&P 500's (^GSPC) 10% rise over that same time period.

Further Catalysts for the DISNEY Weekly Options Trade…..

It's a significant turnaround for the company after its stock price hit multiyear lows last year.

The media giant has been grappling with challenges that include a declining linear TV business, slower growth in its parks business, and losses in its streaming business. A heated proxy battle with activist investor Nelson Peltz has also clouded the company's outlook.

But Venkateshwar argued Disney's next phase "may be more impactful as a number of turnaround elements still remain work in progress and may manifest more in numbers starting next year."

In his bull case, the analyst said sooner-than-expected streaming profitability could serve as a boon to the stock price.

"We expect Disney streaming to break even potentially a quarter or two earlier than company guidance of Q4 2024," he explained. "This is in part driven by the tailwinds from cost cuts over the last few quarters and recent price increases."

Other Catalysts.....

Cost-cutting initiatives have paid off with Disney reinstating its dividend at the end of last year after postponing its payout during the pandemic.

Most recently surpassing its fiscal first quarter earnings expectations in early February, Disney’s Q1 EPS of $1.22 crushed the Consensus of $0.97 a share by 26% and soared from $0.99 a share in the comparative quarter.

Disney’s bottom line is now projected to expand 21% this year and is expected to jump another 19% in FY25 to $5.47 per share.

Attributed to its cost savings initiatives since the return of CEO Bob Iger in 2022, Disney’s long-term debt has drifted down to $42.1 billion compared to peaks of $52.91 billion in 2020.

Reinstated Dividend.....

Piggybacking to Disney's reinstated dividend, it will now pay a semi-annual dividend of $0.45 per share following its strong Q1 results which is 50% above its first post-pandemic payout of $0.30 a share in early January. The ex-dividend date is July 5 and is payable on July 25.
