Dan Loeb's Disney Activist Stance Gets Mixed Reviews


Wall Street experts are giving mixed reviews to activist investor Dan Loeb's letter to the Walt Disney Co., in which he pushed for dividend payments to be instead used to boost streaming content.

The mid-week news that Loeb, the founder of hedge fund Third Point, suggested the Hollywood giant spend $3 billion that has traditionally gone into its dividend per year on more content for its streaming service Disney+, earned praise from those who want Disney to become more like Netflix.

But others argue the Mouse House can keep growing its streaming subscribers, while also bringing back its dividend, which it suspended in May amid the coronavirus pandemic.
