Despite exciting quarter, Disney misses Wall Street expectations
(CNN) - Despite a quarter full of excitement, Disney's revenue for the three months ending in June was lower than Wall Street expected. Disney posted $20.2 billion in sales for the quarter, compared to analysts' projection of $21.4 billion, the company announced after market close Tuesday. Despite missing analyst expectations, sales in the quarter were up 33% from the same period last year, thanks to wins for the company in its studio entertainment and media networks businesses. Those movies and others helped Disney set a record for the highest grossing year for a film studio ever, an achievement announced last week, just seven months into the year. That deal helped beef up Disney's streaming lineup ahead of the planned launch of its streaming service, Disney+, and also gave it a majority ownership stake in Hulu.
