USA (1)

Walt Disney (DIS), a U.S. major entertainment and media firm, reported that it swung to a 3Q net loss of 4.72 billion dollars from a net profit of 1.43 billion dollars in the prior-year period. Revenue plunged 42% on year to 11.80 billion dollars.

Disney pointed out that, impacted by social-distancing measures amid the coronavirus pandemic, its theme-parks business resulted in a loss of 1.96 billion dollars, compared with a profit of 1.72 billion dollars a year earlier. 

However, excluding one-time items such as restructuring costs and impairment charges, 3Q Adjusted earnings per share (Adjusted EPS) amounted to 8 cents, much better than analysts' expectations of an Adjusted loss per share (Adjusted LPS) of 64 cents.

Disney's share price jumped in after-market hours.

On a Daily Chart, the Stock remains supported by a Bullish Trend Line drawn from April.
