On CAPS, 97% of the 1,850 members who have rated Hasbro believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include mwlove and All-Star iamnik77, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community.
In February, mwlove tapped Hasbro as a particularly timely opportunity: "With movie tie-in products coming in droves in the summer of 2011, Hasbro has income generating machines warming up. Wait and see on the HUB, but the other products line ups are top-notch for the second half of 2011."
Over the next five years, in fact, Hasbro is expected to grow its bottom line at a solid rate of almost 14% annually. That's faster than main rival Mattel (9%), as well as other leisure plays like Six Flags Entertainment
CAPS All-Star iamnik77 elaborates on the bull case:
HAS has so many brands to leverage in so many ways. If this company mismanages these brands the downside doesn't seem huge. But if they make the right moves with just a couple of their brands, the results could be spectacular. In this market such a promising company at such an attractive valuation is hard to ignore. And, it isn't even a mega cap yet. Ten years from now, it might be.
