BUY
It delivered a great quarter yesterday, but the stock slipped today due to wider market ennui. Mattel is doing great under its CEO. It reported a top and bottom line beat with bullish guidance for 2021.

BUY
It reported last night monster earnings (95 cents vs. expected 35) and revenue beat (sales up 11%) in its highest quarterly increase ever. Dolls, games and action figures are selling hot. It shot up 9.6% today.

DON'T BUY

Not too long ago this company was on their short list. They are in trouble. They blown up their balance sheet and the returns are terrible. Hasbro (HAS-Q) has put up a potential bid out there and it would make a lot of sense. Your best hope is that buyout. It’s too risky. Maybe they will just wait for them to go bankrupt and pick the assets. They are really not in great shape.

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Feb 9/17. Down 38%.) This has been a dog this year. One problem is e-commerce on big box stores. Also, they have new management that is still trying to correct their brands and turn around sales. The new CEO is a former Google executive, and is bringing in a completely different attitude and vision to the toy industry. Barbie, American Girl and Fisher-Price have great brand power, and should and could be used better in a digital world where the company can earn more money.

COMMENT

Consumer discretionary is just ugly out there. It really needs to hold this level. EBV+3 is $15.03, and this closed at $15.57. His model price is only $15.81. This company needs a good Christmas season.

household goods
COMMENT

Has a small Short on this. It scores right at the bottom of the pack on price momentum. They are also at the bottom on valuation and volatility. An expensive stock trading at 3.2X. Had a big miss on earnings recently. The balance sheet is okay. Dividend yield of 3%.

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Feb 9/17. Down 11%.) This was a tough retail environment. Less foot traffic to the stores has hurt sales. They’ve had to pay up for shelf space. However, he is sticking with the thesis. You are still getting a big dividend is 6.7%. Stock is trading at only 12X earnings. They own very valuable franchises.

household goods
DON'T BUY

Kids today no longer play with their previously manufactured toys. User preferences have changed. Doesn’t think the dividend is safe.

household goods
COMMENT

It goes in very long waves. It is about very long cycles. It will take a number of years for MAT-N to come back again.

household goods
BUY

He is buying this for some of his clients. Originally he initiated positions down around $20, saw it rise nicely into the upper $30s and it is now in the mid-$20s. The recent disappointing quarter gave this enough of a pullback to give him a good entry point. For the long-term, he sees an enduring franchise in their toy business. They are expanding the brand so that you have a doll that can handle just about any kind of social group that a child might want. A $30 price target seems reasonable to him.

household goods
TOP PICK

The stock is off about 18% or so the last three months. There is a Barbie turn-around. Barbie grew in double digits. They paid up for shelf space during the holiday season which pressured margins. They are turning around in the right direction. They are moving to 3D printing. Once they start streamlining that process it will save tremendous amounts of costs in the future. (Analysts’ target: $31.42).

household goods
DON'T BUY

It is a disaster. Where is the catalyst for growth? Kids today are playing with toys very differently than in the past. They tend to download things to an iPad. HAS-N has been outperforming them substantially. He thinks there is more downside in MAT-Q and that the dividend is not safe.

household goods
COMMENT

He recently started looking at it. They have Barbie and Hot Wheels. They lost Frozen from Disney. They are now much more technology oriented with the Barbie line. Your customer changes every 4 years.

household goods
DON'T BUY

They have struggled. They are now on a downward spiral. Children are not playing with toys the way they were in the past. The dividend is attractive, but he worries about the long term prospects.

household goods
COMMENT

If you are looking for income and growth, this company is managing to do the exact opposite. Its balance sheet has been falling and earnings forecasts have been falling as well. Stock is quite highly valued in around 4X BV, which would be reasonable if the stock was a growth stock. Very highly priced and very poorly valued. He would be more interested in Hasbro (HAS-Q) if it had a pullback.
