Disney focuses on streaming and skyrockets on the stock market

October 13, 2020 16:00

Walt Disney Co. announced yesterday at the close of the market that it is going to begin a business reorganization, focusing on streaming services and its Disney + platform. In this way, the company will create a division for the development and production of exclusive content for its platform and another for distribution.

Disney's goal is to counteract the effects of the coronavirus pandemic crisis that has forced it to delay major movie premieres, leading to the closure of many movie theaters. It also aims to compensate for restrictions on public attendance at its theme parks.

Investors have received Disney's change of course and its commitment to streaming with optimism: its shares are registering increases of close to 5% in the pre-opening of the New York Stock Exchange.
