Don't Worry, Disney Will Keep Deadpool For Adults

DEADPOOL 2

Shares of Disney rose 1.8 percent to $114.70 in after-hours trading.

Disney video game titles have been dropping like flies.

In its first quarter earnings report, Disney reported $1.86 EPS against a consensus estimate of $1.55.

Disney chief Bob Iger said on an earnings call that he understands there is significant interest in the R-rated Deadpool movies, and he pledged that Disney will "continue in that business", and potentially even expand to do more. Results were buoyed by increased guest spending and higher occupancy rates at Disney's USA theme parks.

"If its existing media assets are churning out good cash and it's able to contain its costs, the video streaming push later this year should make investors excited and help the stock to get out of its current sluggish spell", he said.

The Rams are expected to have a completely healthy roster heading into the Super Bowl as there are no injury designations. Michel turned out to be a great late first-round pick, and he knows how fortunate he is to have joined the Patriots.

Parks have been Disney's profit mainstay as the company navigates this transition. Disney's booming studio entertainment division posted a 27 percent decline, due to an unfavorable comparison to the same quarter one year ago, which featured the release of box office smashes "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and "Thor: Ragnorak".

"The increase in operating loss was due to the investment ramp-up in ESPN+, which was launched in April 2018, a loss from streaming technology services and costs associated with the upcoming launch of Disney+, partially offset by an increase at our worldwide channels and a lower equity loss from our investment in Hulu", the company said.

As part of that effort, Disney will withhold programming such as upcoming movie "Captain Marvel" from Netflix. That deal will give Disney a majority stake in Hulu, which the company aims to offer alongside Disney+ and ESPN+.

Disney's own movie and TV show streaming service, Disney+, will arrive around the end of 2019 and when it does it is likely to have a stellar line-up of content.
