Disney Stock Drops Due to Underperforming ‘Avatar’ Opening Weekend

Disney shares dropped, hitting a 52-week low after James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water” fell short of box office expectations over the weekend.

At this time shares of Disney are trading at 85 per share which is down $10 from last week.

‘James Cameron’s ‘Avatar: The Way of Water launched in theaters this past weekend, earning a little under $135 Million domestically, with global earnings estimated at around $435 Million.

While Disney’s stock had risen during the pandemic when former CEO Bob Chapek helped weather the storm — reaching above $200 per share at one point in 2021 — it has since fallen according to CNBC.
