WWE stock has skyrocketed +5.15% in after-hours trading on official confirmation from the company regarding its deals with NBCUniversal and Fox.

WWE stock is currently trading at $71.75 and traded up as high as $72.50 after-hours.

Many analysts have been updating their coverage of the stock in recent weeks. I initiated coverage on the stock on May 25th with a 12-month price target of $65. Wells Fargo has a price target of $78. KeyBank Capital has a price target of $71. 

According to company officials, “substantial revenue growth” from the new deals has WWE updating its guidance, targeting adjusted OIBDA of at least $200M for 2019, which covers just three months of the new deal rates.

WWE will be holding a conference call tomorrow at 8 A.M. to discuss more long-term perspective on the deals.

All eyes will be on WWE’s next earnings report, currently scheduled for July 26th, 2018.
