Bob Iger waves the magic wand and Disney stocks surge. The Walt Disney Co. shares rose 6.2% on Monday, after the news broke that Iger is returning to the company as CEO. He replaces his hand-picked successor, Bob Chapek, who had a bumpy tenure during tumultuous times, but had gotten a vote of confidence as recently as June, when his contract was renewed for three years. But Disney’s recent quarterly report included a $1.5 billion loss for its streaming business, and the company missed analyst’s’ expectations on both revenue and earnings per share, sending the stock down – and Chapek out the door. Iger agreed to a two-year contract.
