Warner Bros. Discovery: High Chance of Bankruptcy Says 'Wealth Optimization Service'

A “personalized wealth optimization service” states that Warner Bros. Discovery has a high chance of going bankrupt.

The site, Macroaxis, lists “Warner Bros Discovery Stock Probability Of Bankruptcy” at 58%.

By comparison, Disney, albeit a much larger company, is less than 1%.

The site says, “Most of Warner Bros’ fundamental indicators, such as Probability Of Bankruptcy, are part of a valuation analysis module that helps investors searching for stocks that are currently trading at higher or lower prices than their real value. If the real value is higher than the market price, Warner Bros Discovery is considered to be undervalued, and we provide a buy recommendation. Otherwise, we render a sell signal.”

“Macroaxis is a very sophisticated yet simple to use personalized wealth optimization service built for self-guided, socially responsible investors,” says the site’s about section. “We started Macroaxis during the financial crisis of 2008 as a small project to help investors protect and optimize their positions to combat the ongoing market instability and economic volatility.”  

Warner Bros. Discovery includes Warner Bros. Pictures, Discovery, Max, WaterTower Music, DC films, DC Comics, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, TBS, TNT, CNN, WB Games, and more.

CEO David Zaslav selling Warner Bros. Discovery?

There is actually talk that CEO David Zaslav will sell WBD, which of course also includes DC.

Back in 2022, my Comic-Con insiders filled me in about it and then told me at the 2023 SDCC that Zaslav hopes to sell in a couple of years to Universal which is owned by Comcast, whose bankruptcy score according to Macroaxis is less than 30%.

I’ve also been told that Zaslav hopes Universal breaks up the sale so he can retain Discovery.

I’ve also been told that WBD is broke AF and is the reason why James Gunn is recasting the DCU. I’ve been told that Zaslav demanded that Gunn recast with cheaper talent, hence why the original ending to The Flash leading to the Ben Affleck Batman Multiverse got the ax.

Regarding if WBD does get sold to Universal what happens to the Gunn DCU? I’ve been told Universal will “probably” continue it. Worth a mention is that both James Gunn and Zack Snyder got their big start at Universal with Dawn of the Dead.

Worth a note is that Zaslav has also been licensing out content like crazy: He’s licensed HBO series (which I have been told really ticked off people at HBO) and recently he licensed DC content to both Netflix and Tubi.

The info about the potential WBD sale has been verified by Variety.
