The warning signs for the toy industry started last year when “Cars 3” -- considered a surefire success -- proved lackluster for licensees like Mattel Inc.
Twenty-First Century Fox’s (FOXA) (or Fox’s) dream to gain full control of Europe’s largest pay-TV broadcaster Sky by the end of June 2018 came under scrutiny when Karen Bradley, culture secretary of the Competition and Markets Authority, asked for a detailed review. She also raised doubts about the company’s commitment to broadcasting standards and asked reviewers to examine it carefully. During that period, it grew at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 1.9%. In 1Q18, its top line increased 7.6% YoY (year-over-year), driven by double-digit Cable Network Programming segment growth.

Sure, plenty of Hollywood movies earn over $150 million in China, but very few top $600 million in North America.
Walt Disney (DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox (FOX)(FOXA) exude confidence that their $52.4 billion asset transaction deal will sail through regulatory reviews without much delay or need for significant concessions. Meanwhile, AT&T (T) and Time Warner (TWX), which are seeking to combine in a deal valued at $85.4 billion, have taken longer than originally expected to complete their deal. It’s not that Disney and Fox don’t expect significant regulatory scrutiny of their deal, but they hope that regulatory reviews would conclude quickly so that they can close the deal in the next 12 to 18 months.

Walt Disney (DIS) reached a deal in December to purchase most of Twenty-First Century Fox (FOX)(FOXA), the media and entertainment conglomerate controlled by billionaire Rupert Murdoch. The announcement of the deal ended months of speculations that Disney was looking to acquire strategic assets to try to bolster its competition as technology companies such as Netflix (NFLX), Amazon (AMZN), and Alphabet’s (GOOGL) Google disrupt traditional media and entertainment companies. In the deal with Disney, Fox chose to offload its entertainment unit and media operations that it apparently views as not very important in the future it’s seeking.
There has been plenty of optimism about media stocks and tax cuts, but that's only gone so far for Viacom (VIAB), which is falling on Tuesday on news that a merger with CBS (CBS) is far from a done deal, even if insiders are hoping to reunite the two media companies. Rosenblatt's Alan Gould reiterated a Sell rating on Viacom today, writing that even combined, the two companies aren't big enough to create real value for shareholders in the shifting media landscape, and there aren't many synergies to recommend the deal. Elsewhere in media today, B. Riley's Barton Crockett updated his estimates for companies to account for their benefit from lower taxes, and he also upgraded 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to Buy, with a $46 price target, writing that if the Walt Disney (DIS) deal gets done, which he sees as increasingly likely, Fox will have even more benefit than the average media stock. Crockett argues that the upgrade reflects Disney's big benefit from the tax reform, the fact that Fox is still trading at a discount to the takeout offer, and that regulators can probably be appeased by selling assets, which Comcast (CMCSA) might be happy to buy.
