Will Disney benefit from an advertising rebound and a return of consumer spending?
That's what Wall Street will be looking for when the media giant reports its fiscal second quarter earnings after the market close.
Analysts and investors will also be looking for any forward-looking comments; What kind of impact will an NFL lockout have on the company? What do ABC and Disney's cable networks, including ESPN, expect to see at the Upfronts? How is consumer spending holding up at the parks? And will higher oil prices slam the parks?
Wall Street analysts expect Disney to report $9.127 billion in revenue, up 6 percent from a year ago, and earnings per share of 57 cents, an 18 percent increase, according to Thomson.
