What are analysts saying about Mattel stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Mattel stock:

  • B. Riley analysts commented, "On 2/21, we attended a sell-side analyst meeting with new CEO Margo Georgiadis, former head of the Americas for Alphabet's Google (GOOGL; Buy; $990.00 PT; Sinha). The key message we came away with is that Georgiadis believes MAT has tremendous opportunity to accelerate its growth by leveraging its IP. She joined MAT for five key reasons: (1) she's deeply passionate about childhood learning and education (65% of the jobs today's kids will have in the future do not even exist as jobs today); (2) MAT people have a sense of passion and purpose; (3) MAT has an unrivaled brand portfolio, with high revenue/user; (4) MAT has a global footprint; and (5) she sees an opportunity to transform the internal operations of the company to maximize end-to-end relationships with consumers. Five things Georgiadis plans to focus on: (1) the strategy laid out by previous CEO Chris Sinclair and President Richard Dickson (core brands, Toy Box, emerging markets development, cost improvement); (2) to more systemically incorporate technology across all the brands, as a means of accelerating growth; (3) to drive digital content and communication with the consumer more broadly; (4) to make the business more operationally efficient and to reduce complexity; and (5) to find the right balance between investing for growth and profitability/value to the shareholder." (2/21/2017)
  • Barclays PLC analysts commented, "Mattel's issues this quarter were industry specific and we expect other toy companies to report similar industry challenges. While the company's valuation could appear more attractive following this release, we remain Equal Weight particularly given that management's LT growth objectives are now pushed out to 2019 from 2018, and in 2018 the company faces tough comps against a strong entertainment driven 2017. Until investors feel more comfortable with Mattel's growth trajectory, we believe valuation upside is limited. Further, with this most recent setback, we believe investors are going to focus on the sustainability of the dividend yet again which could also be an overhang. The new CEO (as of 2/8) could shake things up and inject growth (particularly in ecommerce), which would certainly be a positive. We are looking forward to hearing Ms. Georgiadis' plans as she gets settled in." (1/26/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Mattel’s focus on improving point of sale through introduction of more products, brand innovation and strategic initiatives like entering into new categories and strengthening the Girls portfolio bode well. The company’s renewed contracts for toy franchisees of Cars 3 and Toy Story 4 is likely to boost its top line. Mattel’s core brands like Hot Wheels, Thomas, Fisher-Price and MEGA Brands are doing well and the Barbie brand is showing simultaneous improvement. Efforts to achieve cumulative cost savings and enhanced margins are added positives. However, it will take time for all the brands to show consistent improvement. Shares of the company have underperformed the Zacks categorized Toys/Games/Hobby Products industry in the past 1 year. Also, unfavorable forex translation remains a major headwind. Further, costs related to sales boosting initiatives may keep profits under pressure while macroeconomic concerns limit revenue growth." (1/5/2017)
