Upcoming Earnings To Watch: DIS, FOXA, SNAP

The week of July 30 was another busy one during second-quarter earnings season. Apple AAPL blew investors away on its way to its historic $1 trillion market cap, while Tesla TSLA continued its polarizing ways. All of the FANG stocks have now reported, but the week of August 6 is full of big names as well.

Apple’s quarterly earnings soared by 40% to reach $2.34 per share, coming in above the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Apple’s fiscal Q3 revenues climbed 17% to hit $53.27 billion, also topping our estimate. Meanwhile, the electric car power posted a larger-than-expected quarterly loss but did surpass revenue estimates.  

Many investors are also still sorting out what to do with Facebook FB and Netflix NFLX going forward, while Amazon AMZN and Alphabet GOOGL seem poised for continued growth. But, there are still some major players set to report their quarterly earnings.

Luckily, investors can always use the Zacks Earnings Calendar to plan out their schedules for earnings, dividend announcements, and other important financial releases. With that said, let’s take a look at three of the most important reports during the week of August 6.

The Walt Disney Company DIS

Disney DIS is set to officially purchase a huge chunk of 21st Century Fox’s business after Comcast CMCSA bowed out of the race. The firm hopes its acquisition, which includes Fox’s film and TV studio, will help it better compete in the age of Netflix and Hulu. Furthermore, Disney will roll these key Fox assets into its own streaming service that is due out at some point in late 2019.

Shares of DIS are up roughly 12% over the last three months. And our current Zacks Consensus Estimate is calling for the company’s quarterly revenues to climb by 8.8% to hit $15.49 billion. Disney’s quarterly earnings are projected to surge by over 24% to reach $1.97 per share. However, our earnings estimate has fallen by $0.08 over the last 30 days, which means analysts are less positive about DIS than they were a few months ago.
