Patience can bring a double-digit return from a Disney stock

Shares of Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS) has risen an impressive 54% in the last six months (126 trading days) and is currently trading at $ 190 per share. DIS’s recent stock set was driven by the strong performance of its streaming business, Disney +, as demand for streaming was high during the pandemic. Disney + boasts a total global subscriber of 95 million in just a year and a half since launch. To put things in perspective, Netflix has reached 200 million subscribers after a decade of operation; at the current rate Disney is likely to reach a turning point in a much shorter time. In addition to strong demand for streaming, with the phasing out of locks and the successful introduction of vaccines, market expectations are high for Disney’s traditional businesses, such as cable and theme parks. This has led to great investor interest in DIS shares, which has led to an impressive rise in its price. But will Disney shares continue for the coming week or is a stock correction more likely?

According to the Trefis Machine Learning Engine, which identifies trends in the company’s stock price data over the past ten years, yields on DIS stocks on average close to 5% in the following quarterly (63 trading days) period after an increase of 54% compared to the previous six-month period (126 trading days). But it is especially likely that the shares will have bad The S & P500 over the next three months, with an expected return that would be 1.5% lower than the S & P500.

You can test the answer and many other combinations on Trefis Machine learning to test DIS’s chances of growth after a fall and vice versa.
