  • 12/26/2017 – Mattel was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “strong sell” rating to a “hold” rating. According to Zacks, “Mattel’s shares have underperformed the industry year to date. Current-quarter and year estimates revisions have also gone down drastically over the past 60 days. The recent Toys "R" Us bankruptcy was a significant drag on the last reported quarter’s revenues and profits and may continue to be so in the near-term. Also, sluggish performance of certain segments and brands along with loss of Disney deal has added to its woes. A challenging retail environment for toys is further hampering the company’s performance. Even so, Mattel expects its Cars franchise, strategic investments in emerging markets and key power brands — Barbie, Hot Wheels and Fisher-Price — to drive growth. However, various headwinds to revenue & margin growth remain a major cause of concern.The recent dividend suspension might also not go down well with the investors and in turn hurt the company’s stock-price performance.”
