Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) received a downgrade from Keybanc to "sector weight" from "overweight." The firm cited a myriad of reasons, including slowing subscriber growth for Disney+, structural changes in content distribution, and its new labor contract in Florida that is likely to pressure margins. DIS is inching lower after the bear note, down 0.7% at $88.22 at last glance. 

Support at the $87 level appears to have kept a lid on losses, though pressure at the $95 level and 40-day moving average still lingers above. Year-to-date, the security is up a slim 1.7%. It's worth noting that DIS' 14-day relative strength index of 31.6 sits on the cusp of "oversold" territory, which would indicate a short-term bounce is on the way. 

The majority of the brokerage bunch is bullish. Of the 22 analysts in coverage, 20 carry a "buy" or better rating on Walt Disney stock. Plus, the 12-month consensus price target of $116.92 is a 32% premium to current levels. 

Options traders are pricing in extremely low volatility expectations at the moment. DIS' Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 22% ranks in the lowest percentile of its annual range.
