Dow component Walt Disney ( DOW) is slated to deliver its fiscal fourth-quarter results after Thursday's closing bell. The average estimate of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters is for earnings of 54 cents a share in the September-ended quarter on revenue of $10.36 billion. Year-to-date, including a 4% drop ahead of the report during Wednesday's regular session, Disney shares have declined 10%. The stock topped out at $44.34 on March 4 and sank to a 52-week low of $28.19 on Oct. 4, so it's seen a bounce of roughly 20% in the past month or so. At current levels, the shares trade at a forward price-to-earnings multiple of 11.8X based on the fiscal 2012 consensus estimate for a profit of $2.88 per share. Evercore Partners, which has an overweight rating on Disney, lowered its price target on the stock to $40 from $42 on Oct. 30 and also brought its earnings estimate for the quarter down to 54 cents from 57 cents "despite the fact that DIS results rarely match consensus." Indeed, it's been a mixed bag over the past four quarters, two misses and two beats.
