Walt Disney's stock was surging after an investor day presentation that earned praise and price target hikes from several top Wall Street analysts.

Shares of the entertainment giant jumped 14% on the heels of Thursday's investor presentation, where Disney rolled out new streaming subscriber numbers, its content slate for the next several years and announced a price hike for Disney+.

Needham analyst Lauren Martin, one of the top Wall Street researchers in the internet and media space, said in a note to clients that Disney has already surpassed Netflix as the leader in streaming video.
