What are analysts saying about Mattel stock?

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

  • 1. Argus analysts commented, "at least several quarters."Staszak stated in his downgrade report that he is concerned with Mattel's declining revenue and expanding losses. The analyst also highlighted the company's gross margins which fell by 680 basis points in the first quarter to 37.0 percent, which was notably lower than the 43.7 percent the consensus estimate was calling for. Q1 ConcernsStaszak further noted that Mattel oversees four business segments and all four of them saw declining revenue on a year-over-year basis as follows:Mattel girls and boys brands fell 16 percent to $441 million.Fisher Price fell 8 percent to $247 million.American Girl fell 12 percent to around $82 million.Construction arts and crafts well 38 percent to around $39 million.Given the sales decline in each segment, it shouldn't come as a surprise Mattel's management slashed its 2017 guidance which was issued on February 17. Specifically, the company is expecting full-year sales to rise by a mid-single-digit as opposed to a prior guidance of a mid- to high-single-digit.Staszak's estimates is now calling for a 3 percent full-year sales growth from 2016 to $5.6 billion, down from a prior estimate of $5.7 billion.Finally, the analyst briefly discussed a source of concern among Mattel's investors, namely its current dividend, which is yielding 6.82 percent. Staszak believes the company is on track to pay shareholders $1.52 per share on an annual basis in 2017 and can even raise its annual dividend payout to $1.64 per share in 2018.Bottom line, Staszak believes Mattel's success depends on its ability to "stay ahead of trends" (4/28/2017)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. 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)
