Disney is sliding after hours after another poor quarter, in which the Mickey Mouse company which recently severed relations with Netflix, reported a miss on the top and the bottom line, reporting Q4 EPS of $1.07, down 3% from the $1.10 a year ago, and below the $1.14 expected. The number would have been even worse had the company used the 34.3% effective tax rate it had one year ago instead of the lower 30.8% rate it used this quarter. The revenue miss was even worse, with DIS generating $12.78BN in Q4, 3% below a year ago, and over half a billion below the $13.32BN expected. Total operating income declined by 11% to $2.8BN from $3.2Bn a year ago, while free cash flow remained flat at $2.7 billion.
