GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Mattel Inc

John Rogers Comments on Mattel Inc. - Jul 19, 2018

Toy manufacturer, Mattel Inc. (NASDAQ:MAT) was another top contributor, jumping +24.87% in the period. MAT continues to make progress executing on the turnaround strategy to stabilize revenues, reduce costs and ultimately improve profitability. Excluding the impact of the Toys “R” Us liquidation, the company posted positive worldwide gross sales growth driven by strong momentum in its key power brands, with Barbie® and Hot Wheels® each up double-digits in the quarter. Inventory was well managed and MAT eliminated the liquidity overhang on shares by amending and extending a long term debt maturity and using the proceeds to prepay a note that was due near term. Additionally, MAT appointed a new CEO, Ynon Kreiz, who has over 20 years of experience in the media and entertainment industries. In our view, MAT has the right people in place to deliver on its strategic imperatives. That said, we realize change does not happen overnight and we are keeping a close eye on indicators that highlight continued execution. In the meantime, shares are trading at a substantial discount to our estimate of private market value, and although we project modest growth across the toy industry, we expect MAT to offer stable and consistent earnings and cash flow over the long term.

John Rogers Comments on Mattel - Oct 27, 2017

On the flip side, we had a few holdings that underperformed. Toy manufacturer, Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ:MAT) declined -27.44% during the period. Early in the quarter, the company reported disappointing earnings results. While company revenues were in-line with expectations, gross margins were disappointing. Another headwind to the stock was the mid- September announcement that Toys”R”Us was filing for bankruptcy, which sent shockwaves through the toy market. In our opinion, Toys”R”Us’ bankruptcy will have little long-term impact on Mattel. Toys“R”Us represents approximately 11% of Mattel’s total sales. In the short-term, the impact should be reflected in fourth quarter sales for Mattel, but those numbers will probably result from softness across the board, not from Toys“R”Us specifically. Likewise, we have strong conviction that the company’s global reach and proven consistency makes it the licensee of choice for brand owners seeking a toy-manufacturing partner.

Jerome Dodson Comments on Mattel - Oct 25, 2017

However, the negative impact of our stock selection overwhelmed the positive impact from our sector weightings. Toy manufacturer Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT), best known for its iconic brands including Barbie, Hot Wheels and Fisher-Price, was the Fund’s biggest loser this quarter. The stock dropped 28.1% from $21.53 to $15.48, reducing the Fund’s return by 80 basis points. The shares slumped after the company reported disappointing sales and lower gross margins. The stock fell further in September after Toys R Us, the largest U.S. toy store, filed for bankruptcy protection. While we recognize the near-term challenges facing Mattel, we added to our position because investors have become too pessimistic on the company’s prospects. We believe in new CEO Margaret Georgiadis’ plan to reinvigorate Mattel’s brands by creating online media content, shortening the product development cycle and strengthening the innovation pipeline, and we expect the upside to be significant when her efforts start to bear fruit.

From Jerome Dodson (Trades, Portfolio)'s Parnassus Fund third quarter 2017 commentary.
