Why Fox Chose Disney over Verizon
The Disney-Fox Deal: Netflix, Cost-Cutting, and Other Concerns
January 16, 21:35:02 UTC

Is Disney Acquiring Fox for $52 Billion or $66 Billion?
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.

Disney patent may hint at potential in-park Star Wars, Marvel game
The Walt Disney Co. may be looking into how to give theme park visitors powers, much like "the Force" in Star Wars or the various powers possessed by Marvel superheroes. A new patent published with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, dubbed "Location-based Experience with Interactive Merchandise," aims to use various toys like gloves, and gestures to control environmental factors such as projections, holograms and displays with virtual adversaries. This image hints at powers popularized in Marvel superheroes, to be used to interact with an in-game character.

Tax Cuts Are Great for Media, But…
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.
