On CAPS, 88% of the 744 members who have rated Mattel believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
A few months ago, one of those Fools, TMFRedRam, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive growth opportunity: "Mattel is better positioned than Hasbro to make the most out of a growing global market. They've demonstrated an ability to get it done overseas and there is no reason that trend will end anytime soon."
