Thursday's Consumer Goods Headlines

In today's Consumer Countdown, analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly take a look at the big headlines in the consumer goods sector from the past few days. First they take a look at PepsiCo's (NYSE: PEP  ) earnings and compare them to main competitor Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO  ) . Then they look at eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY  ) , which sold off heavily following its earnings announcement, and discuss whether the sell-off is justified.

After that, Mike analyzes Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK  ) , which is down 15% over the last two days thanks to lowered guidance, to see if he thinks the guidance is warranted. And last but not least, Sean looks ahead at Mattel's (NASDAQ: MAT  ) holiday season.
