As the year winds down and the festive spirit takes hold, the stock market often presents a curious yet anticipated phenomenon known as the Santa Rally. Within this whirlwind of festive trading, let’s look at how two titans of the tech world, Amazon and Apple, might fare during this unique season.
Disney: Earnings Report Will Be Presented on August 12
2021-08-10 • Updated
What will happen?
Disney, the world’s largest family entertainment and media enterprise company, will present its earnings report for the second quarter on August 12 after the stock market closes (23:00 GMT+3). The release will be followed by an investor conference call at 23:30 MT, August 13.
What to expect?
Analysts expect a massive turnaround in Disney’s revenue. The company took losses during the COVID-19 pandemic when its core travels (theme parks, cruises, and hotels) faced closures and capacity restrictions.
As the economic reopening will possibly take longer than it was expected because of rising Delta variant cases worldwide, and Disney's parks coming back to their capacity slowly, investors will also focus on subscriber growth in the entertainment giant's streaming service, Disney+, which was benefiting from the stay-at-home environment.
The moment of truth is coming for Disney’s stock. Price is getting squeezed between 100- and 200-day moving averages as investors and traders await the Q2 earnings report. The RSI and MACD oscillators also show no clarity since both indicators are “flatting” on their averages. Right now, the price has formed 4 significant levels: $192, $184, $170, $154. If Disney overperforms the expectations, the price will rise to $184 and $192. Otherwise, it might drop and close December 2020 gap at $154.

Earnings season is a crucial time for investors and analysts, as it provides insights into how well companies have performed over the past quarter and gives indications of their future earnings. In 2023, expectations for US Q1 earnings were low due to economic challenges and rising interest rates. Surprisingly, many companies beat these low expectations, with 75% of S&P 500 companies surpassing forecasts.

Last week I gave a trade idea on XAUUSD with a target around the $2,020 price line. At the time of writing, XAUUSD already exceeded the target and I’m sure that would leave a lot of people wondering what to expect next. Below, I have presented my view of how I expect the price action to turn out in the meantime.
