    It broke out into a 5 year high recently, which makes me wonder if I should place my bets on the movie merchandise + Marvel this year. The chart is really really rocky though. But I don't think Hasbro has ever been this ambitious in the past, so it could be a landmark year for the company.

    Getting the Marvel line was a serious power move for them. They're frikn unstoppable now. Plus GI Joe & Sigma 6 , TF's & Star Wars, good lawd. They should marry EA sports and take over the world

    2007 is a milestone, probably one of their best years

    It's more for novelty than anything, since all the fees and junk far outweigh what a single share of stock will probably ever be worth. I bought my sister one for Christmas.

    Well, market wise you'd see a high jump in stock price before the movie. The factor that would determine if it goes up or down would be the success of the movie. Doesn't do well, flop. Does well, goes up.

    Huh. I started as a temp there in Aug. 06. Coincidence? I think not!

    And if they're doing this good you'd think they could open up a few more full-time positions, dang-nabbit.

    Seriously, I think I'll print out that graph and show it to my manager...

    Some advice for anyone buying Hasbro:

    I owned it for about a year or so and made an okay profit on it. I bought it at around $20, sold it at around $27, but I needed the cash for school.

    Hasbro, like nearly all toy stock, has two regular peak areas - May-June, when kids get out of school and want their summer toys and November-December, the Christmas season. The November-December peak is usually the biggest one (per year) and it was good to me.

    Sell around Christmas with toy stocks and you're always promised at least some sort of profit. Either way, for those who might care, the Hasbro toy stock - at least when I owned it, two years ago - was pretty consistent and I never worried about it causing me any sort of loss.

    buy low sell high. the stock doesnt look too "low". But theres alot of stuff coming out soon. Unless something drastic happens company wide, it should be pretty solid. Revenue from these new Transformers toys will hopefully be good for them. I'm sure there are alot of investors playing with them right now. GM, Paramount, and whatnot, maybe a pepsi deal of sorts lol. New Cartoon? high 40's mid-late 3 quarter summer predictions anyone? Its a good time for hasbro now cause theres not alot of competition, cough rangrs cough

    I'm not prepared to say high 40s, but I do think it could hit 40 this year. Perhaps as Ops said, around Christmas.

    Might buy for a year, wish I had bought in last July.

    I think because they are becomming an "intelectual property" company (so's Marvel) it makes them much hotter to Wall Street.

    At almost 25 Price/Earnings, it's not cheap but it's not crazy overvalued. If you want to buy Hasbro as a longer term holding but are afraid of it tanking around movie time you might want to buy some July 2007 put options as insurance. The strike price at 27.50 is about .95
