New Purchase - Mattel


On January 21, I initiated a position in Mattel. I am hopeful that management will get their act together and monetize their brands as well as Hasbro. Real life movies of Barbie, Halo and Call of Duty would definitely help promote their brands and rake in profits.

My dividend yield analysis of MAT shows that it is trading at a discount to its average dividend yield.

Over the holidays, I added a new Stock Analysis page to my blog. This page contains a link that brings you to a google spreadsheet which contains my very simple analysis for over 100 stocks. In it, you'll find average dividend yields, Graham Prices and CAPE ratios.

I hope you all had a great time during Christmas.
