RCII is not my favorite stock, but i have to say that everyone needs to buy this and go long. Something big is brewing, you know a huge short squeeze is coming, an opportunity to make a lot of money. Even better now that the stock is down after market close. Buy the stock combined with all type of Option Calls.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Hold it still. I think that it will go down to 22. My target price range is 20-22 in 5 to 6 months.
To be honest I am not a MAT short at the moment, but I am following it. I have too many shorts in my portfolio and cannot add more. I disagree with you. Whether is for the trend of the market (which might be in part) but also for the results that will come in 02/01, we will see who is right. And I think I am right on this. I see it very difficult for MAT to come triumphant from this past holiday season. 20-22 in July.
I don't necessarily disagree with you. You are saying that it is a good investment long term and I might not disagree with that. The problem is that I don't agree that short term sales are good. For instance what you say about Star Wars you have to understand that the deal with Disney works on Purchasing of rights and on Royalty. So For MAT or HAS to make money they have to sell a heck of a lot Star Wars toys. Disney knows that all toy makers have no choice but to hop on the deal and DIS has the sweet end of the stick. If I were long I would sell here and buy cheaper in 4 to 6 months. I mean 20 to 22.
You cannot put your money on a losing stock. Even if it is a great company which I think MAT is, it is still a losing stock. I root for the Yankees when they win or lose, but if the stock is a loser which I see MAT as a loser stock, I am out. You cannot treat a stock the way that you treat your favorite Baseball team.
Complaints from customers were
1- connectivity. The WiFi hardware used in the doll is not the best.
2-Battery charge. It would not hold charge.
Hello Barbie was a complete FLOP. problems with software. Unhappy customers. I work in the retail industry and this is my experience with Hello Barbie. And It was too expensive. Kids preferred other toys. Even girls were going for the video Game. I see the high Dividend being cut soon. I think it is probably the best that could happen to MAT investors. If the dividend is not cut it is going to cut into available cash for operations.
