More on Disney's (DIS) FQ2: Revenue gains were paced by segment strength at Parks and Resorts +14% Y/Y to $3.302B, Consumer Products +12% to $763, and Studio Entertainment +13% to $1.34 up as Oz: The Great and Powerful bumped up against a soft comparable from last year which included the below par haul for John Carter. Cable network revenue was up 9% to help offset slipping broadcast revenue with the company noting affiliate revenue benefited from contractual rate increases. The loss at Disney Interactive narrowed to $54M as the segment looks poised to be a major back-half 2013 topic. DIS +1.0% AH. (PR)

    Time for Market Current folks to drop the John Carter nonsense.
    Disney made a profit on the movie. It was labeled a "flop" after the first month here in the US. The movie fared better overseas and turned a profit. Oz: The Great and Powerful was a blockbuster. No comparison is needed.


    Disney is a strong company and hits it out of the park more often than striking out.
