Earnings Outlook: Disney earnings: How do you solve a problem like ESPN?

Walt Disney Co. is set to report earnings for the fiscal second quarter after the market closes on Tuesday.

Here’s what investors can expect:

Earnings: Disney DIS, -0.58% is expected to report per-share earnings of $1.41 for the quarter, according to analysts tracked by FactSet. That would be a 4% increase from the same period a year ago, but a 9% drop compared with the sequential first quarter. The media and entertainment giant has beat FactSet’s expectations in eight of the past 10 quarters.

Estimize, which crowdsources estimates from sell-side and buy-side analysts, hedge-fund managers, executives, academics and others, expects Disney to report earnings of $1.46 per share.
