3 Stocks to Buy That Could Fly After Earnings News: Mattel (MAT)

Toymaker Mattel (MAT) isn’t expected to post a profit when it reports earnings for its second quarter next Thursday, July 16th. Investors counting on an earnings beat will likely be disappointed.

Still, Mattel is one of only a handful of stocks to buy on the heels of its earnings news. The stock may well be prodded by the rhetoric surrounding MAT after the earnings report is posted and the conference call is over.

In simplest terms, Mattel is in the midst of a much-needed turnaround. In its second year of deteriorating results, new top-management was finally brought into the fold in April. Even before a new CEO and COO were named, however, there was already a glimmer of hope for Mattel’s turnaround efforts. That is, Q1’s sales as well as earnings topped estimates.

What could really light a fire under the stock, however, isn’t just a corporate overhaul. A major motion picture is almost certain to stir the pot in a bullish manner for Mattel over the remainder of 2015.

Yes, it’s Star Wars.

After a decade-long hiatus, one of the most successful movie franchises of all time is set for reprisal when Episode 7 of the series — The Force Awakens — debuts in December. Mattel is already in the thick of the toy tie-ins, which could (almost needless to say) be huge.

Though details are still a bit scant, we have seen a handful of new related merchandise from the Star Wars franchise, with more movie-specific toys sure to emerge as the release date for the film approaches.

With this kind of catalyst in the cards at the same time the company is finally getting traction with its turnaround efforts, MAT could finally come alive again after struggling since 2013. It just needs a nudge, and the post-earnings response may well be it.

Mattel boomerangs to its worst stock loss in more than 20 years

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/matte ... yptr=yahoo

The toy maker’s stock suffered its worst loss of the millennium on Friday, exactly a week after its best trading session of the 2000s the previous Friday. The boomerang trade was the result of splitting holiday-season earnings from Mattel’s MAT, -18.27% forecast for 2019 — neither held great news, but last week’s earnings were at least better than expected.

Mattel‘s guidance Friday afternoon — reserved for a presentation at the annual Toy Fair industry event in New York — said gross sales will be the same as 2018 after factoring out the negative effects of currency fluctuations. Mattel sales have declined for five consecutive years, including 2018, but analysts were actually expecting the company to beat that streak in 2019, with an average projection for 3.5% growth, according to FactSet.

Mattel stock jumped 23.2% on Feb. 8, after sales were good enough to beat diminished expectations in the first Christmas season without Toys R’ Us. That was the biggest percentage gain since 1976, according to FactSet data. When shares plunged 18.3% in one big gulp Friday afternoon, it was the worst percentage decline since October of 1999.

Toy makers have faced severe doubts about their ability to drive higher sales and margins as retail sales decline, which has also weighed on rival Hasbro Inc. HAS, -3.73% Mattel shares had declined more than 27% in the past year before the earnings report provided some temporary relief.

STUCK-AT-HOME KIDS ARE A BOON FOR THIS TOYMAKER

Today, we're taking a look at one of Steve's favorite investing strategies...

As regular DailyWealth readers know, investing in stocks that have gone from "bad to less bad" can make for impressive gains.

After a company's shares have plunged, even the slightest good news can mean a huge rally. And today's company is proof that this strategy works...

Mattel (MAT) is a $5 billion toymaker. It owns popular brands like Barbie, Hot Wheels, and UNO. Over the past few years, Mattel has struggled with e-commerce pressure, competing toy companies like Hasbro (HAS), and the closure of Toys "R" Us...

Recently, though, with kids stuck at home, its Barbie dolls, action figures, building sets, and games are in high demand. In the most recent quarter, sales grew 10% year over year to $1.6 billion – solidly beating analysts' expectations.

As you can see in today's chart, shares of MAT have surged more than 110% from their March bottom – and they recently hit new 52-week highs. This just goes to show that big gains are possible when things start to get "less bad"...
