Mediagiants Disney and Netflix have both proven to be extremely successful companies over the years, and eachlanded a spoton the Forbes list of the world’s most valuable brands in 2018.
这些年来,媒体巨头迪士尼和Netflix都被证明是非常成功的公司,并在2018年福布斯全球最具价值品牌排行榜上都有一席之地。

Now the two are in a battle to win over the world’sbinge-watchers, as Disney recently announced the November debut of itsstreaming platform, Disney+.
迪斯尼最近宣布其流媒体平台Disney+将于11月推出,现在,这两家公司正在进行一场战斗,以赢得世界上那些追剧狂人的支持。

Which company’s stock would have made you richer if you invested 10 years ago, though? The answer is Netflix — by a lot.
但是,如果你在10年前投资,哪家公司的股票会让你变得更富有呢?答案是Netflix——比迪士尼多得多。

According to CNBC calculations, a $1,000 investment in Netflix on April 23, 2009, would be worth more than $58,000 as of April 23, 2019, for a total return of over 5,700%.
根据CNBC的计算,2009年4月23日对Netflix投资1000美元,到2019年4月23日价值将超过5.8万美元,总收益率将超过5700%。

If you put $1,000 in Disney over the same period, your investment would be worth about $7,700, a total return of over 680%. During the same time period, the S&P 500 returned 320%.
如果你在同一时期投资1000美元到迪斯尼,你的投资价值将达到7700美元,总回报率超过680%。同期,标准普尔500指数的回报率为320%。

The difference between the two investments comes to more than $50,000.
这两项投资的收益差额超过5万美元。

While Netflix would have made you more money, any individual stock can over- or underperform and past returns do not predict future results.
虽然Netflix可以让你赚更多的钱,但任何一只股票的表现都可能超过或低于预期,而且过去的收益率无法预测未来的结果。

After Disney’s announcement, in fact, Netflix shares fell 4.5%. (The company reported quarterly earnings per share and revenue last week that beat estimates, though, and the stock is up more than 34% year to date.)
事实上,迪士尼宣布流媒体平台Disney+后,Netflix的股价下跌了4.5%。(不过上周,该公司公布的季度每股收益和营收超过了预期,该股今年迄今已上涨34%以上。)

对于观众来说,一周一集的剧集,看完需要再等上一周,实在心欠欠…养肥了再看吧,身边防不胜防的剧透党又叫人怕怕。

Binge,n.狂欢,放纵;v.狂欢作乐。binge eating,饮食无度。

3)streaming platform流媒体平台

streaming platform提供的是Streaming services,“流媒体服务”=让你一次看个够~噢~噢!

Stream,n./v. 流,流动;涌出。

如They played in a cool mountain stream.他们在清凉的山间溪流中嬉戏。
