After appearing to make a comeback, Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT) again finds itself losing the confidence of investors. The toymaker issued weak guidance just one week after indicating differently in its Feb. 7 quarterly report. Mattel stock dived in mid-day trading following the news. Source: Horantheworld via Flickr (Modified)This likely means a state of decline will continue for the maker of Barbie, Hot Wheels, Fisher-Price, and other iconic toy brands. It also calls into question what will happen to Mattel's current management team, and maybe Mattel itself.Considering the renewed level of uncertainty surrounding the toymaker, I think investors should stay away from MAT stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Healthy Dividend Stocks to Buy for Extra Stability A Wild February for Mattel StockThis news stands in contrast to the previous earnings report. When the company announced fourth quarter and full year 2018 earnings on Feb. 7. At that time, they stated, "2018 was a great year for Barbie, which sustained growth and continued momentum globally."They concluded by saying they looked forward to celebrating the 60th anniversary of the iconic doll in 2019. The stock saw a one-day pop of 23.7% following the news.One week later, while at an analyst meeting, they downgraded forward guidance, citing slowing Barbie sales. Not only is this bad news for MAT, but it also calls into question why they did not bring this up during quarterly earnings.This unnerved investors as Mattel stock nosedived in the final 80 minutes of Friday trading. As a result, Mattel stock plunged by more than 18% on the trading day. A Comeback DelayedThis comes as a huge setback for those hoping for a long-awaited comeback in Mattel stock. MAT had reached a high of almost $48 per share in late 2013. It spent the next five years in a steady decline. In December, MAT stock appeared to have formed a double-bottom in the $9 per share range. Before the delivered guidance, it had reached almost $18 per share.Even after falling below the $14 per share level, we have a stock with a forward price-to-earnings (PE) exceeding 25. Also, the average long-term growth rate that analysts forecasted at 10% per year.I do not know if Wall Street will revise that lower. However, that leaves Mattel as an equity in an old-line business with a management team that just lost the confidence of many investors. Those kinds of financials will not attract buyers under these conditions. This also makes a certain outcome for MAT more likely. Upper Management Isn't the Only ProblemEarly last year, I stated that Mattel might have to merge with its direct peer Hasbro (NYSE:HAS) for both to compete. In an age when more kids are treating Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPads or Samsung (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) tablets as toys, old-school toymakers have yet another electronic competitor.Also, that does not consider games from the likes of Activision (NASDAQ:ATVI), EA (NASDAQ:EA), and Take-Two (NASDAQ:TTWO) which have posed a competitive threat for decades.Moreover, with the rise of ecommerce, an individual can market their self-created board games on Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) or a Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) site. The Cashflow board game from Rich Dad serves as a good example.I still think non-electronic toys have a place. However, given these conditions, today's market may not have room for two companies like Mattel. Still, with this level of uncertainty surrounding Mattel stock, I do not think investors should buy into this dip. The Bottom Line on Mattel StockThe weak guidance, as well as the strange conditions by which management issued their forward-looking conditions, mean prospective buyers should stay away.By acting in this manner, Mattel's leadership made a challenging situation much worse. Not only did they dampen expectations, but management also divulged their bad news in a way that diminishes confidence in the management team itself.Many will wonder whether this makes Mattel stock a buy or a buyout. I do not think we can know at this point. However, with diminished confidence, this stock can easily retest the $9 per share low. Given those possibilities, I think investors should declare "game over."As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Samsung has revealed the Galaxy S10 smartphone, the latest model that the Korean company hopes will challenge the iPhone Xs for a spot in consumers hearts.
Called the Galaxy Fold, the new Samsung device delivers on one of the industry’s long-running pursuits: making a tablet-size phone with a glass display that can bend in half, allowing it to be closed like a wallet and fit in a consumer’s hand, pocket or purse. said the Galaxy Fold handset answers critics who argue the smartphone industry is beset with stagnant innovation and market saturation. The splashy product reveal dovetailed with the launch of four variants of Samsung’s Galaxy S10 flagship lineup, an attempt by the company to cater to a wider swath of consumers.
Samsung's new Galaxy lineup, announced on Wednesday includes four versions of a Galaxy S10 -- an entry-level S10E, a standard S10, and an S10 Plus, as well as a 5G-enabled version -- and the Galaxy Fold, the long-awaited folding smartphone that Samsung has been teasing for months. As smartphone makers see slower sales and market saturation, the tone of Samsung's product unveiling was markedly upbeat. During the keynote, Samsung's President DJ Koh told the crowd: "Who says the era of smartphone innovation is over?
The latest gadget from Samsung has a special display that can fold open and be used like a tablet, the first announcement of its kind. The Galaxy Fold includes "a compelling form factor that only Samsung's foldable OLED technology can deliver," Goldman analyst Rod Hall says. Samsung's new foldable phone represents a challenge for Apple AAPL in the iPhone maker's luxury device market, Goldman Sachs warned clients.
With the release of the $1,980 Galaxy Fold, Samsung challenges Apple’s claim to premium pricing and unleashes, in what looked like a mature market, the same kind of race that Apple started with the first iPhone. When Apple launched the iPhone in January, 2007, it did so at $399 with a two-year contract, more than most mobile phones cost that year, but Nokia’s 2007 flagship handset, the N95, sold for a hefty $700 unlocked – and it didn’t even have a full keyboard. Samsung, however, isn’t trying to be the Apple of 2007: It has moved to displace the Apple of today from the enviable market position of capturing 44.4 percent of the smartphone market’s total value in the last three months of 2018 while delivering only 18.2 percent of unit shipments.

SAN FRANCISCO/SEOUL (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has wowed the smartphone industry with the first foldable screen, burnishing its innovation credentials, banishing "fast follower" criticism and, at nearly $2,000, setting a new standard in premium pricing. At its launch event in San Francisco on Wednesday, Samsung upped the surprise factor by briefing analysts and journalists on widely anticipated aspects ahead of time, such as 5G versions of its existing top-end Galaxy S phones. "I am blown away," said Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy, adding the phone could help Samsung rejuvenate its mobile business, whose lead is under attack from China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd.
