JAKKS Pacific (NASDAQ:JAKK)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating reaffirmed by Zacks in a note issued to investors on Thursday, ARN reports. They currently have a $8.75 price objective on the stock. Zacks‘s target price would suggest a potential downside of 1.69% from the stock’s previous close.

Zacks’ analyst wrote, “JAKKS Pacific’s first-quarter loss of $0.74 per share was narrower than both the Zacks Consensus Estimate and the year-ago loss. The improved results were driven by better-than-expected top-line performance. Revenues were boosted by dolls dress-up and role play in the company’s Frozen line, Disney Pirate Fairies dolls and dress-up, and pre-school foot-to-floor ride-ons and wagons. Going forward, we are optimistic about the company’s product launches and organic growth initiatives, such as creating new products and securing licenses. However, we prefer to remain on the sidelines currently, given the weak consumer spending amid a sluggishly recovering economy and the intense competition. We, therefore, maintain our Neutral recommendation on the stock.”
