  • However, Disney has other assets with growing business to offset the emerging troubles of ESPN.
  • ESPN is still the second-most valuable sports brand. It will lose subscribers but it will remain a long-term accretive business for Disney.
  • I expect Disney to beat street estimates when it reports its Q3 2017 ER this coming August 8.
  • I Know First still has positive, near, intermediate and long-term algorithmic forecasts for Disney.
