Here’s a look at some of the companies the Yahoo Finance team will be watching for you today.
Investors are weighing in this morning on Disney’s (DIS) latest earnings report. The Mouse missed on the top and bottom lines but reported strong results for its movie studio, parks and broadcast unit. Disney CEO Bob Iger also revealed its new streaming service will launch late next year.
It could be a rocky ride today for Snap (SNAP). The parent company of Snapchat posted unusually strong numbers after the bell on Tuesday, including a $250M investment from a Saudi prince. But the company also reported its first ever decline in active daily users. CEO Evan Spiegel blamed the user drop on a recent redesign.
Apple (AAPL) insists its iPhones aren’t spying on you. In a letter to Congress, company officials said iPhones don’t record audio while they’re listening for you to wake up Siri. And it requires explicit permission from users before apps can access the microphone. Apple says it has removed some software from its App Store over privacy concerns.
Ford (F) is out with a new plan to win over drivers in China. It’s rolling out the Ford Territory, a midsize sport SUV meant for the middle class. Ford is partnering with a Chinese company to build the vehicles in China, a market where the automaker has struggled in recent years.
