Mattel's Q3 Earnings Preview


Mattel (NASDAQ: MAT) announces its next round of earnings this Thursday, Oct. 25. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for the Q3 earnings announcement.

Earnings and Revenue

Analysts predict Mattel will report earnings of 20 cents per share on revenue of $1.49 billion.

In the same quarter last year, Mattel posted EPS of 9 cents on sales of $1.56 billion. Revenue would have fallen 4.55 percent from the same quarter last year. Here's how the Mattel's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:


Quarter Q2 2018 Q1 2018 Q4 2017 Q3 2017
EPS Estimate -0.29 -0.38 0.26 0.63
EPS Actual -0.56 -0.6 -0.72 0.09

Stock Performance

Over the last 52-week period, shares are down 13.07 percent. Given that these returns are generally negative, long-term shareholders are probably a little upset going into this earnings release. Analyst estimates are adjusted higher for EPS and revenues over the past 90 days. Analysts seem to have settled on a Neutral rating with Mattel. The strength of this rating has maintained conviction over the past three months.
