Disney’s streaming services seem to be going well for the company as they believed to be worth over $100B alone.
According to a new estimate by Barclay’s, the company is currently worth over $320B and nearly a third of that is thanks to Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. Barclay got this number by calculating Disney’s Enterprise value from its core businesses and then subtracting that from its entire worth. Enterprise, in this case, is a value measure that combines market cap with short and long term debt.
According to this calculation, Disney’s core businesses made up over $213B of its value. This value comes from Disney’s more traditional sources such as the films it produces, theme parks and so on. This, however, leaves over $107B-$108B to be accounted for which seems to come from Disney’s streaming services.
This means that Disney’s streaming services are now a major rival to that of the streaming titan, Netflix. The company took well over twelve years to reach the value that Disney’s streaming services have achieved in a matter of months. Netflix itself is currently worth $144B and it is not inconceivable that Disney’s streaming services could eventually catch up.
This has no doubt helped contribute to Disney’s current high stock prices. The price of a single piece of Disney stock has raised by 30% since last year with the stock value taking a huge jump since Disney+ launched late last year. Whether or not it will be able to maintain this level of growth, however, has yet to be determined.
