    Stock Market oriented show. Did a holiday season segment related to the toy companies and what they have out during the holiday season, how that translates to their bottom line short and long term.

    Specifically mentioned Transformers, the upcoming movie, and how sales related to TFTM stuff next year should offset declining Star Wars sales.

    Stated that Hasbro struck deals with over 130 3rd party licensors for the Movie.

    Also mentioned the Marvel deal for Hasbro, and how Spiderman and Fantastic 4 movie related sales should increase profit, improve bottom line.

    AKA, Buy Hasbro, it's a winner.

    And, overall he spoke of Transformers well, said they were "cool", and mentioned how Yoda couldn't transform into a truck :) 

    MAD Money w/Jim Cramer is on MSNBC, segment just ended at 6:15 EST, could be on again later as a repeat, not sure.

    The thunking sound you hear is Alphie's jaw hitting the floor. If you hear a weeping sound in the background that's her wallet.

    Actually, Hasbro stock is going to pay for about 1/4th of my housing downpayment. I sold high last year around December.

    Toy stock is nice because it's pretty consistent - it rises regularly in July and December, and gets additional nice little boosts based on stuff like, yeah, the movie coming out and etc.

    I agree with Jim Cramer - buy Hasbro. However, I'd suggest either buying NOW, before the December christmas stock goes upwards OR waiting until January, when the stock will drop for a bit after the holiday rush.

    LOL! That's a good one! Although I hope it doesn't really happen as it could hurt the TF franchise.

    I'm actually making an investment recommendation. And I'm licensed to do so. Get used to the movie getting ripped on, it's only going to get worse when the non-TF community gets a closer look at it.

    I apalogize for my earlier comment. I've just been weary of 'jokes' like that since the Cometformer thread. But that doesn't excuse me for my own comment, so sorry, Fosterlager.
