Disney’s share holder have a lot to be happy about right now. Barclay’s have valued Disney at over $200 Billion worth, with their streaming business taking $100 Billion in valuation.
The report released on Monday values Disney’s streaming platform, including the new Disney+ platform, Hulu, and ESPN+, at almost half of the entire company. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the $100 Billion valuation is almost 70% of Netflix’s valuation.
“Multi-year investment cycles with limited visibility need a narrative to align investors with management goals,” the Barclays analyst wrote in another report Tuesday. “This is something that Disney has done a great job of over the course of 2019 and has in turn given the company more degrees of freedom to invest aggressively in its streaming efforts.” (The Hollywood Reporter).
With the Streaming War just starting, this is a good sign for the Disney family of streaming services.
