  • Mattel, Inc. Misses EPS Estimates, Shares Plummet; Raises Dividend (MAT)

    Before the opening bell on Friday morning, Mattel (MAT) reported its fourth quarter earnings, posting lower worldwide sales than last year's same quarter,  MAT’s Earnings in Brief
    • Mattel reported fourth quarter sales of $2.113 billion, which were down from last year's Q4 $2.256 billion.
    • The company's operating income came in at $479.3 million, which was up from last year's Q4 operating income of $373.5 million.
    • MAT's EPS came in at $1.07, which was slightly lower than last year's Q4 adjusted EPS of $1.12.
    • MAT missed analysts' estimates of $1.21 EPS on revenues of $2.38 billion.
    CEO Commentary MAT's chairman and CEO, Bryan G. Stockton, had the following to say about the company's lackluster results: “By every account, 2013 was a challenging and transformative year at retail. Overall, the global toy industry held up pretty well, but we did not meet our growth expectations for the fourth quarter, or the full year, mainly driven by weakness in the U.S. market. That said, Mattel did deliver a fourth consecutive year of sales and earnings growth. We saw global strength in our girls portfolio, expanded gross margins, returned nearly $1 billion to our shareholders and continued to invest in emerging markets like China and Russia, which experienced significant growth. Looking ahead, Mattel enters 2014 with the strongest global portfolio of brands, countries and customers in the toy industry. We must now effectively execute against our strategy to grow the business and deliver superior shareholder value.” MAT’s Dividend Mattel announced a 5.6% dividend increase, pushing its quarterly payout from 36 cents to 38 cents. The dividend is payable on March 7 to all shareholders on record as of February 20. The stock goes ex-dividend on February 18. Stock Performance In pre-market trading, MAT was down $4.49, or 10.44%. YTD, the company's stock is down 9.24%.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Mattel (MAT) have a yield of 3.5% based on Thursday's closing price of $43.01 and the company's annualized payout of $1.52.
