If you have even a modest amount of stock in Disney, you've probably been somewhat unhappy since January of this year:
Disney investors aren't having as awful a year as Netflix shareholders. But that's not saying much.
Netflix's stock has plunged more than 40% this year, ahead of its first quarter earnings release after the closing bell Tuesday. Meanwhile, shares of Disney have dropped nearly 15% so far in 2022. That makes Disney one of the worst performers in the Dow, which is down just 4% this year.
Ouch! No good. But wait: It gets worse.
Double ouch! Of course, that's just one day, and after a long and leisurely 15% decline over the past four and a half months. But there's a more instructive way to look at these data: By measuring Disney's decline in stock relative to when they came out in favor of teaching 5-year-olds about sex.
Quadruple ouch! That's right, we skipped the triple ouch!
Things aren't looking great for Disney. Such a shame, it couldn't have happened to a nicer company!
