Is Disney Buying Netflix? Stocks Of Netflix Rises From Disney Takeover Rumor?
Last Monday, the shares of Netflix closed higher at 4.14 percent in U.S. trade after rumors of Disney's interest in acquiring the streaming company. William Power, Baird analyst, said "whether Disney, Apple or someone else, Netflix could become a target." in the "recent M&A rumors"
However, a spokesperson from Netflix said the company will not comment on the rumors and will not announce anything as the company is still in its period of blackout ahead of its October 17 earnings. Disney was not able to comment either regarding the rumor.
Tony Wible, Drexel Hamilton Analyst, was reported saying the sudden rise of Netflix shares could be due to rumors of Disney's plan to acquire the company. However, it looks like Netflix "hasn't shown it wants to be acquired." Meanwhile, Disney has already shown their interest in streaming. Just last August, it invested in BAM Tech, a streaming video company, and DisneyLife, where people can stream movies and TV shows of Disney, amounting to $1 billion.
