Buy, Sell or Hold? fuboTV Inc. (FUBO) and Endeavor Group Holdings (EDR)

Although the entertainment industry’s long-term prospects appear bright due to solid demand, the industry may remain under pressure in the near term due to macro challenges. So, let’s analyze whether you should buy, sell or hold Endeavor Group Holdings (EDR) and fuboTV (FUBO)...

The entertainment industry has been affected by consumers’ spending cuts in the face of high inflation and recession concerns. However, the industry appears well-positioned to grow significantly in the long term.

While quality entertainment stock Endeavor Group Holdings, Inc. (EDR) could be worth buying, I think it could be wise to avoid fuboTV Inc. (FUBO), considering its weak fundamentals.

The global amusement park market is expected to reach $68.8 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 4.9%. Rapid urbanization, expansion of the travel and tourism industry, innovative rides, lodging facilities, and official products are driving market expansion.

Also, technologically advanced solutions increased disposable incomes, and investments in themed amusement parks and 4D rides will likely propel the market.

Furthermore, the global smart entertainment systems market is expected to grow at 5.8% CAGR until 2033. Investors’ interest in entertainment stocks is evident from Invesco Dynamic Leisure and Entertainment ETF (PEJ) 7.3% returns over the past three months.

However, due to high inflation, many consumers in the United States are cutting back on their usual spending habits, including their typical entertainment expenses.

Let us look deeper into the fundamentals of the featured stocks.
