Loftus Peak’s chief investment officer Alex Pollak has queried Disney’s decision to pay $US71.3bn ($97bn) for 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets in 2018. He notes that both Disney and Fox largely generate their revenue streams from the sale of content to cable and pay-TV companies, but these sources of revenue are under increasing threat from video-on-demand services like Netflix. Pollak says Rupert Murdoch sold 21st Century Fox because he decided that it could not compete with companies like Netflix and Amazon.
