Disney Outperforms Expectations, Reports Minority Stake In BAMtech - Walt Disney Company The NYSE:DIS

Shares of Walt Disney Co DIS 0.96% were trading lower in Tuesday's after-hours trading following a strong earnings report. Disney reported Q3 EPS of $1.62 versus estimates of $1.61. Sales were $14.277 million versus estimates of $14.15 billion.

"Cable Networks revenues for the quarter increased 1% to $4.2 billion and operating income increased 1% to $2.1 billion," Disney's release said. "The increase in operating income was due to growth at ESPN, partially offset by a decrease at the Disney Channels, lower equity income from A&E and lower Freeform results."

  • Media Networks revenue rose 2 percent year-over-year versus prior gain of 5 percent.
  • Parks & Resorts revenue rose 6 percent year-over-year versus prior gain of 4 percent.
