(A Top Pick May 06/19, Down 59%) They stumbled with a new distribution system in North America and their supply lines from China were totally disrupted. The balance sheet remains strong, so they will survive, but how long will it take for them to recover? When will stores reopen? He's holding on.

(A Top Pick Feb 26/19, Down 30%) It's disappointing. The Toys R Us bankruptcy hit the sector harder than expected; peers like Target aren't as good as selling toys as Toys R Us. TOY has net cash and great balance sheet, though, and remains innovative with a good pipeline of toys. He's waiting to average down.

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)

Likes it. Got out of it a while ago, but has been looking at it again. Revenue was down a lot in the last quarter, but TOY is much more diversified among its products and taking market share from its peers. He'd re-enter if this falls a few more dollars.

They were impacted by the Toy R US shut down. They recently beat estimates, though. The comparables to previous years are not so favourable but they have gone out and obtained toys that are bought all year long. One toy they have could be a Christmas hit this year.

On a risk profile, it's riskier because it's a small cap. Their franchise is Paw Patrol. Toys R Us issue has caused a decline in revenues. Stock will go sideways for a while. Don't allocate half a position just yet. If there's a selloff, its beta is 1.53. Overpowering headwinds right now.
