  • Wolf: $MAT Phase 2, or just wide range consolidation? Up 3.8% today.
  • Bridget: @Wolf $MAT This stock is in a downtrend. I would want to see if break above $31.50 before I would be interested in going bullish or buy it closer to the 20MA for a swing trade.
  • Wolf: @Henry $mat Thanks. I don't pay much attention to twitter, but maybe I should.
  • traderbren: $MAT -- with all the talk of retail, $MAT has buying interest. NP.
  • mharps: $mat strong move but earnings on Jan 18 and resistance at the 200 (daily) , I have a starter and like the dividend-(if it keeps paying)-this was on volume so we'll see.
  • Wolf: @mharps $mat Yahoo and Fidelity show earnings on 1/30 after market close. I don't see any news to account for the 5.7% move today. Have been holding a medium position for the mainly for the dividend.
  • Henry: @Wolf $mat TWTR is my source to explain the unexplained. Mattel introduced an Amazon Echo-type smart home assistant aimed at children at CES as well as a smart baby monitor.
  • traderbren: $MAT -- might be worth a trade as its back above the 50 dma and getting a bid on the intraday.
  • Bridget: @janner0814 $MAT #BUCS This stock is just trading sideways. Did you have a question?

  • Wolf: @Iceman $MAT $HAS #ShortPuts #Earnings Looks good so far. $2 above my strike.
  • Wolf: $MAT Closed weekly bull put spread for .67 gain. BTO half as many weekly 32 puts for .21. With this volatile market, could make money if it gives back half.

  • Bridget: $MAT breaking down below the 200MA. Head and shoulders pattern on the weekly that has just recently been confirmed. Moving averages turning over. I think this is a good shorting candidate.

  • Thunder_Struck: $MAT Mattel, Fuhu Move Closer to Sale -- Market Talk 18 hours 19 minutes ago - DJNF 17:35 ET - Children's tablet-maker Fuhu is nearing a solid sale deal with Mattel (MAT), and a truce with lender Tennenbaum Capital. Both will be necessary if the kid-tech business is to survive bankruptcy. Persuaded Mattel is serious about a buyout, Tennenbaum agreed to loosen its grip so Fuhu can fill holiday orders in the coming weeks, at least some of them. Fuhu's low on inventory, after a fight with contract manufacturer Foxconn, and its website says it's out of stock on many items. ( (END) Dow Jones Newswires December 08, 2015 17:35 ET (22:35 GMT)

  • GreenGhost: $MAT Barbie on fire look at daily closed all BEPS about a week and half ago when stock touched middle of BB then kept going on 4/6 ; very strong signal for reversal of downtrend was commencing; 2 days later; 4/8 flipped to calls ;those are screaming ...
  • GreenGhost: $MAT Barbie beach buggy crashes and burns ; still no CEO just some interim board member who I suspect is not loving life here ; company announced yesterday it brought back fired CEO as a consultant; stock is loving that; down another 2.5% and yet another 52 week low ; long Apr 27/24 and 25/23 BEPS which have both more than doubled ;1st position bought 2/18 added 3/2; 2nd position bought entire full position on 3/12; I can see this stock at 20 before too long.

  • GreenGhost: $MAT Barbie trade update BTC Mar 27/30 BECS for .11 DR this was the funding side of Mar 27/24 BEPS debit spread which is up over 50% Stock is such a poor performer short strike was ATM when I sold them and this spread decayed 85% already since sale on 2/18 which isn't even a week. Poor Barbie. Close out early also frees up margin.
  • GreenGhost: $MAT Newsflash Ken wants a divorce; Barbie in tears; stock down another 1% today. Have several bearish options trades on this poor stock.
  • GreenGhost: @Bridget $MAT agree they do though apparently need toys that have ties to movies ala $HASB; should have done a pairs trade too ;short $MAT long $HASB
  • nb8702: @GreenGhost $MAT Heard through the Grape-Vine the disgruntle Barbie took a little road trip with a friend during her time of need but it's been reported they were a little wild and had a run in with the law and it's looking a DOWN For Barbie.
  • GreenGhost: @Bridget $DIS Continues Earnings strength mostly Espn driven; every wonder why your cable rates keep going up every month it seems and through the roof? You van than Mikey Eisner and his crew. $HASB is taking some serious market share from $MAT in a fairly zero-sum market toy market so pairing with $HASB is a more targeted and levered play than $DIS which is a multi-content media powerhouse vs. a stand alone toy company.
  • GreenGhost: $MAT Barbie no more trades ( Apr BEPS DR funded with Mar BECS CR) working really well; stock was off over 1% yesterday and is down another 2.5% today. See post yesterday for trade thesis and strikes. Stock looks pretty bearish as longs flee this weak company.
  • GreenGhost: $MAT Barbie getting crushed stock down 3.5%; 52 week low out of a tight vol squeeze to downside on big institutional selling; this stock has it all for bearish plays ; stock is quickly approaching my short strike on Apr 27/24 BEPS DR spread; it appears I set my sights in this case too high. My short leg on my mar 27/30 BECS ( CR spread ) has dropped in price 70% in 2 days; very weak and busted stock. Stock could see 20 before finding support. risk to trade is CEO replacement or activist at this point.
  • GreenGhost: $MAT I identified a intermediate term Bearish continuation wedge pattern (6wks -9 mos) so here's my anti-Barbie trade ( company has a really crappy qtr and guide down) STO Mar 27/30 BECS ( a credit spread) to fund purchase of Apr 27/24 BEPS DR spread ; downside target in stock is low 23s. Entire trade cost me .15DR so possible 2.85 CR max win ($3box less .15DR net capital outlay). That works out to 19 to 1 leverage (2.85/.15) ; I'll take it. I will look to take out all my capital and possibly book a profit by selling another BECS at Mar opex. Stock is cooperating nicely today and is off another 1%. Of course this is double option leverage so if stock runs up north of 30 I'd be cooked.
  • Forexpro: RE: $MSFT, $MAT Hi, Friends, $MSFT is something resembling a long term holding for me, but while the drawing isn't quite a perfect trend channel, it's certainly pointing the wrong way for those of us who are long. The company is winning quite a bit of media applause of late, but that doesn't seem to be translating into an overly strong stock: Meanwhile, $MAT just announced that $MAT's CEO has resigned. The stock isn't doing all that well thus far this morning: No position in that one. Best of luck!
  • captron: $MAT - Reference Dan's post and email, their earnings are scheduled for 1/30 after the bell and Whisper has called for them to have a nice loss or miss, what ever you want to call it. That should also move the stock.
  • traderbren: $MAT - turned into a great 59M Trade.
  • captron: $MAT - Volume picking up on the Feb puts
  • captron: $MAT - Really starting to squeeze on the 5 min chart. Which way will it go?
  • TunaHelper: @captron $MAT is skipping slightly above the VWAP (in a narrow channel, per your post). Chart:
  • captron: $MAT - The spread is widening on the Feb 30 puts as volume picks up. Adding to my position.

And a few breaking out or looking like they might- $UTX,PNC, $MT, $MAT and JOY. I have no position as of now. I'm a bit cautious and waiting to see what the market does.

  • jdaniels: $MAT - Started working on Christmas at the beginning of year. $MAT Earnings this morning and missed, but raised its div from 31 to 36 cents. Traded down pre-market and is now flat on the day. This stock goes higher
  • jdaniels: $MAT - Added to common position via leap Jan 2014 40 calls. Did the same thing last year, which worked out well without the stress
  • jdaniels: $MAT - Up over 1% on very high volume. Looks like the market liked the div boost, I know I did
  • jdaniels: $MAT - Added to long term position on this pull back before earnings. For those looking for the slow and steady investment strategy
  • murfields: #SQUEEZE---Today only 10 of the 15 are up. $MAT up another 1%+ and it is outside the upper BB band. A usual sign to take the 15% profit, $PFE also outside upper BB band so sell. Tomorrow possible start of another 3 day down so either watch another day or start taking profit on the rest of squeezes posted on the week-end.
  • murfields: #SQUEEZE---Scotto listed approximately 100 stock with a #squeeze based on the BB band with of 0.06 or less. Many will go too long before a break-out and will not give immediate profit and of little indicative value for now. Examination of the appearances of their BB charts is of importance. For a trial I picked out 15 out of Scotto's list based on their BB charts and maybe a possible break-out for immediate profit. The list includes; $EW, $MAT, $ETR, $NU, $MCK, $COF, $USB, $VZ, $TEG, $PNW, $CMS, $WFM, $T, $DTE, PFE. At 1.37 Pm EST 10 of the 15 are positive on this down day. I will follow these for the next few days for further possible up-trending.

  • murfields: @Scott- How do you pick your possible squeezes, just the 0.06 band width? The list is quite long. When I am looking I try to pick possible break-out in the next several days for possible up-tend of 3 or more days I try to analyze the BB chart of present and possible future expansion. Most in your long list could go for a long time-period before an immediate break-out. Possible immediate break-out on the list are $EW, $MAT, $ETR, $NU, $MCK, $COF, $USB, $VZ, $TEG, $PNW, $CMS, $WFM, $T, $DTE, PFE??? They are just possible. Next week I will check for the winners. @Henry; your posting eliminated my reason for my post.
  • jdaniels: @DAN - $MAT, $LTD, $PEP,CAG, $GIS, $PG, $CLX, $KMB - Need help @Dan on stocks that are never talked about in the forum. $MAT, $LTD, $PEP,CAG, $GIS, $PG, $CLX, KMB. Obviously these are all in the consumer space and very low beta and considered safe with dividends. However in a markets such as we are in now when the river is running against us should we sell and buy back at lower prices or stick with the long term theme. I own all of these tickers, some up substantially, some flat and some with slight losses.

  • dawgoil: money Machine Patterns Here is my dilemma --Using the above posted formula the scan dropped 7 stocks yours picked. I haven't compared them individually, but don't understand the differance. Hope they weren't #RHRN money makers. Any thoughts? $DM COST PM LLY $MKC SRE $PKI EIX $MO HSP $MAT MFE $ED AEP $CNP FII $HRL DUK Thanks for your help, Sam
  • eleKtra: $MAT Some stocks are healthy (ish) today.. Mattel hit a 52-week high of over $24. The world's #1 toymaker swung to a profit as sales rose 12% last quarter. Their market cap is over $8.8 billion. If it can hold up on a day like today...coming out of a #squeeze, max power of the bears is today is 23.72 , strong support @ 23.34.

    Earnings: Before - $BAC, $GE, $GCI, $MAT, $FHN
    Other: Building Permits, Housing Starts, Michigan Sentiment, State Jobs

    Have a great week everyone.
  • scrabbie: $HAS - Since $MAT reported great earnings on sales of Barbie (even low tech toys are still popular), I checked out $HAS which reports next week. It's held up well during this pullback and is bouncing off of the the 50 dma. Sales and earnings are growing, ROE is 20% and its chart isn't as sloppy as MAT's. With Iron Man 2 coming out (looking forward to that), I think this has potential. Toys and Games have been a strong performer.
  • dunsek: HAS- only 100 sleeps till Christmas, and $HAS is up 7.48% since I suggested the Has/Mat play on the pre-Christmas rush on Aug 14. $MAT is up 3.3%, but that's underperformed against the SP-500, which is up 4.83% in the same period. Luckily, I only went long $HAS :) Numbers as of yesterday's close.
  • Gambler: $MAT - @Textbook resistance. If you're a complete rookie to technical analysis and still wondering if it "works" look at MAT. (FYI, I'm pretty new myself)

    First on a daily chart, note the last two highs on 7/21 and 8/14. Draw a line there and y ...
  • dennism: It chart like $MAT that make friends understand how technical analysis works. I tried at a party Friday night, not sure I was successful but they went away scratching their heads and less skeptical. No doubt at least one is trying SMM this morning
