The market was flat Thursday morning as investors considered Disney’s second-quarter earnings report and lower-than-expected wholesale inflation.
The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) narrowly beat revenue estimates and missed on earnings, causing shares to fall more than 5%.
The company posted a loss on streaming, having lost subscribers during the second quarter. Recent price increases translated to higher revenue per subscriber, which helped to soften the blow.
Meanwhile, the latest Producer Price Index report came in at 0.2% versus estimates of 0.3%, giving investors further hope that inflation is easing.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss why today’s PPI report is vital… whether the bond market is set to trade higher or lower… which sector appears bullish but is actually losing momentum… plus my top ETF and option pick for Thursday!

P.S. Headline News Drives Market’s Biggest Moves
Only about 30 stocks in the S&P 500 are trading higher in 2023, the other 470 are still in the red!
But what’s really interesting is the reason why those 30 stocks are trading higher…
It has nothing to do with momentum or fundamentals. It’s all because of news headlines and catalysts.
And if you know how to target those headlines, you could unlock the potential for some amazing gains.
And my buddy Lance Ippolito is about to go live at 1 p.m. ET today, May 11, to reveal all the details on how he uses this information as a key part of his trading strategy.
