+ Watch HAS
on My Watchlist
From Mr. Potato Head to Monopoly, Hasbro is one of the world's largest makers of toys and games.
Toys are cheaper than gadgets.
Intellectual property and partnership with movie companies
The exact type of stable, boring producer of consumer goods that benefits greatly from increasing globalization.
Have you seen how successful the My Little Pony become? My daughters and their friends are avid followers, buying Pony toys, watching the episodes on Netflix, and the limited showing of the My Little Pony movie in our town, was packed!
I've been a shareholder for a little over a year and they have generally lagged a little behind the market. I think the dividend will keep them alive in the market while they run around trying to reinvent themselves with movies and a TV network that has yet to show profit. A lot of possibility with intellectual property though. overall I'm still long HAS
content provider in a way, character provider for sure.
Heck, even stores like Gamestop are starting to carry board games. A growing population and more families will be buying toys and games, or electronic versions for tablets and computers. Great dividend yield, share buybacks, and relatively strong earnings.
Good growth with a good dividend make this stock a winner
Brand + dividend
Hasbro plans to utilize its "brand blueprint" to focus on a few core brands such as Transformers, G.I. Joe, My Little Pony Play-Doh, and Magic: The Gathering.Hasbro dividend to free cash flow stands at 53% and yields 4%.The next Transformers movie in 2014 will give this company a rejuvenated boost.
Solid brands. Movie deals. Potential buyout.
High yield strategy: TMFHighYield says to look for "high dividend payers from the S&P 500 from diverse sectors, relatively low debt, and a history of increasing dividend payments." This is my Consumer Goods pick.$35.30
Unedited Excerpt from a CAPSCall article anticipated for publication on 24-DEC-2012: The next selection for the newly launched Inflation-Protected Income Growth Portfolio comes straight from Santa’s Workshop just in time for Christmas, toymaker Hasbro (Nasdaq: HAS). Perhaps best known for its movie tie-ins with the Star Wars and Marvel fanchises, Hasbro’s total portfolio also includes classics like Nerf, Play-Doh, and Twister as well as the Parker Brothers games like Monopoly.
Maybe not full acquisition, but I can see a range of very lucrative Disney-Hasbro interweavings. Besides Starwars, Hasbro has the global "Ponies" franchise [toys and animation], some film possibilities [although BATTLESHIP stunk before it sunk], and other synergies that would get Disney beyond the media focus as the ESPN star starts to flicker.
The econ is slowly getting better, parents will have disposable income.
Bought Sept. 20, 2012 @ 38.20/share. Let's see how I do. Solid company, good dividend (3.75%) with a PE under 15. This should perform well long term.
5 years of eps growth, strong dividends, undervalued at moment.
Watch for Romney's horse, Rafalca, as the next "My Little Pony" on the new season, "Dressage is Magic"!! Okay...or just teach your kids Monopoly, enjoy a solid divident, and see what kind of programming they cook up with Discovery Channel. "Battleship" sunk but this alliance will eventually find it's footing, it's funding, and they'll leave Barbie and Ken among the "Walking Dead."
buy low, good dividend and hold. seems like a foolish strategy on this pick.
