Shares of Disney (DIS)initially rose in after-hours trading Wednesday. But they quickly turned lower after the company’s CFO acknowledged that the second half of the year may not be quite as strong relative to the first half when it comes to streaming. Disney+ ended its fiscal second quarter with 137.7 million subscribers, up 7.9 million from a year ago and better than estimates. Investors were keen to see those Disney+ numbers after Netflix last month reported a decline in paid subscribers for the first time in more than 10 years. Disney’s fiscal second-quarter revenue rose 23% to $19.25 billion, helped by strong theme park sales. Revenue would have been $1 billion higher, if not for the early termination of some licensing agreements to make more content available for streaming. Disney reported adjusted earnings of $1.08 per share.
U.S. futures are lower, European stocks are lower and Asian markets ended lower.
