    Disney downgraded. In a move that placed $14 billion in Disney debt a few steps above junk bond status, Fitch cut Disney's rating from "A-" to "BBB+" and placed the media giant's credit on a "negative" status.

    Disney responded to the move by emphasizing recent debt-cutting measures, which have included slashing capital expenditures by 30 percent percent to $1.25 billion.
