It is a really well run company. It is a dominant player in the toy industry. The business is very lumpy month to month, year to year. Kids are sending more time on-line and not playing with toys.

A great Canadian success story since the IPO at $16. He exited a position around $52. He has a lot of respect for management. Sales were not strong this past Christmas season. They said they had problems with their NJ distribution center which hurt their sales. He would not buy it yet as there may still be some downside risk. (Analysts’ price target is $39.00)

Now is an opprtunity for them--they can swoop in as Toys R Us winds down. Who knows--they may get acquired themselves down the road. They're smart to always think a few cycles ahead, testing their toys accordingly.

Once owned it. Management has done well building this business. Toys are less cyclical than people think. Is generating a lot of cash flow. Now is an opprtunity for them--they can swoop in as Toys R Us winds down. Who knows--they may get acquired themselves down the road. They're smart to always think a few cycles ahead, testing their toys accordingly.

Bought this at about $25, and has since added to it. It’s exactly the kind of company he wants to own. They are using free cash flow to reinvest existing products or for acquisitions. Very well-run. All the toys are not going to be big hits, but this company has a very good track record of bringing innovative, unique products to market.

They have been masterful in picking the hot toy. Great price momentum. They survived a couple of block sales of stock. It has good valuation despite the run-up. 38% return on equity. They have a good balance sheet and high quality earnings.

Had a position in his model portfolio, and he cut it in half prior to their earnings, because he was a little worried about the Toys "R" Us bankruptcy. This company just skated through that without any problems. Thinks they're going to have a great, great Christmas season. The company just seems to know what they are doing in the toy market. They've executed well, have beaten expectations and the stock is growing big enough now that large funds can buy it. This is so much better than their competitors.

Just reported, and numbers were a little softer than what the street expected. Their numbers can be a little lumpy from quarter to quarter, and they trade at a fairly high multiple. When that happens, it is not surprising to see the stock fall off. Longer-term, this is a fantastic business. They are real innovators. A difficult business, because they have to be constantly innovating. They’ve done a really good job in making acquisitions.

This is a stock he has been looking at, but it just keeps on going higher, and he can never get in at a good price. They are firing on all cylinders, and the stock price is reflecting that. However, gambling on one data point based on earnings is just a gamble. He would not encourage that. If you can get in on its 50-day moving average, do it.

He is always concerned about parabolic runs, because you never know when it is going to revert back to its major moving averages. The fundamentals look great, but it has had a phenomenal run, making it very difficult to invest in. If you own, place a Stop at the 20-day moving average of $35, or perhaps the 50 day.

This seems to have all the hot toys for the Christmas season. The chart looks more like a parabolic run rather than a straight line higher. He is always concerned about parabolic runs, because you never know when it is going to revert back to its major moving averages. The fundamentals look great, but it has had a phenomenal run, making it very difficult to invest in. If you own, place a Stop at the 20-day moving average of $35, or perhaps the 50 day.

It has been a great growth story. It is hard to value a company when it is in this strong a growth trend. You have to expect more volatility if you want to stay with the trend. If it starts to trade below the 100 day average then it may not continue to go higher. (Analysts’ Target $38)

This company really has a good sense of the market. They have a three-year rolling plan, and basically are planning right now for 3 Christmases out. Growth rate is very high at 40%. He really likes what they are doing on the acquisition side. They are starting to take their leadership in toys and expand, and just bought a pool company that makes pool toys. A great, great company.

This is a founder led company which he likes. The founders started out selling Earth Buddies and Devil Sticks on the street and have built it into an international toy company. This is a fresher IPO, so they don’t have a lot of operating history, but if you can get past that, there is lots of life. They have a lot of growth levers to pull. Just getting started internationally and are not afraid to make acquisitions. Also they are starting to pair TV content with their product launches, which could be pretty powerful. If you have a hit TV show you will have a hit product, or vice versa.

Toy producer. It continues to be super innovative. Has huge brand power. Have a number of relationships with different companies such as Star Wars games, Barbie games, etc. This has been growing phenomenally, both organically and by acquisition. Not super cheap, but growing at a phenomenal rate. Insiders own so much of the stock, the float is not very big, so it does tend to be a little volatile. If you can pick a day or week when it is selling down, you get a chance to get into the premier toy company out of Canada. At some point, the stock is probably going to get taken out.

This was created 20 years ago by 3 extraordinary University boys. They have expanded the company and it has his own internal developers, and they work in close unison with companies like Disney (DIS-N). It is in an expansion mode globally now, which in a sense is cutting out middlemen.

Has a small position, largely because of his success through MegaBrands. There is a scarcity, not only in Canada, but also in North America of listed toy companies. Concerned about ownership concentration. Thinks 3 principles own about 97% of voting shares, which raises some corporate governance issues. It is early days for them, so it is worth paying attention to.

The trouble with toy companies is that at some point you have to evaluate the strength of their underlying products. He initiated a small position in this because it looked interesting and also because there is a scarcity of consumer stocks in Canada.

This company was set up by 3 university students, and the mom of one of them gave them a toy to develop or market. Out of that, 20 years ago, they have company which is now closing in on $1 billion in revenue. It has just gone public and has some very creative aspects. Like tech has all these developers they use, this company is in touch with creators of toys. Not expensive.
