Should Investors Be Watching These Top Entertainment Stocks Right Now?

As investors await the Federal Reserve’s latest monetary policy call, entertainment stocks continue to shine in the stock market today. This appears to be the case as most of the companies in this space are bringing their A-game. After all, we are heading into the holiday season where most people would be looking to spend time with their loved ones. This can be in a variety of ways ranging from movies to cruises, and even streaming content. As such, it would not surprise me to see investors eyeing this section of the stock market now.

Notably, a key name in the entertainment world to know now would be Disney (NYSE: DIS). This week, the company is releasing its latest blockbuster movie Spider-Man: No Way Home across the globe. As it stands, current estimates point towards the movie raking in $100 million over its three-day debut. Should this be the case, it would be the highest pandemic-era opening for a movie. Pair this with Disney’s vast array of ongoing series and reopening tourism offerings and DIS stock could make for an attractive buy to some.

Elsewhere, travel firms across the board continue to ramp up their operations to meet rising consumer demands. Just this week, global cruise operator Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NYSE: NCLH) completed a nearly $200 million round of investments towards improving its ships’ exhaust gas systems. In theory, this would serve to further reduce its overall emissions to better accommodate global gas emission standards. Regardless, as consumers turn towards the entertainment industry this month, investors could be inclined to do the same. With that said, could one of these top entertainment stocks be worth watching now?
