In a surprising turn of events, The Walt Disney Company's stock took a nosedive this morning, hitting a new 52-week low at $83.02, representing a decline of over 3%. The downward trend has raised concerns among investors and industry analysts alike.
Disney (DIS) is now on track to close at its lowest level since 2014, excluding the pandemic-induced market lows. This significant drop in stock value has left many questioning the factors behind this downturn and its potential long-term implications for the company.
Yahoo Finance Markets Reporter, Jared Blikre, provided a comprehensive breakdown of Disney's market capitalization, revealing a staggering $16 billion loss since Bob Iger's return as Disney CEO. This alarming decrease in market cap further emphasizes the extent of the company's struggle and raises questions about its future prospects.
Disney's recent performance has also made it one of the worst-performing stocks in the Dow today, with losses hovering at approximately 3.5%. As the closing bell approaches, it appears that Disney is poised to end the day at its lowest level in nearly a decade.
