Standing by that would be correct. They are. Net Earnings up 3% shows an increase in profits that can't be argued otherwise. (Net earnings already removes operating costs.) The only people that argue otherwise are trolls that want Hasbro to fail, and if they had their way, they'd drive the company into the ground with bad choices. The only losses at all reported were from the TRU bankruptcy. Which had nothing to do with Hasbro and impacted all toy manufacturers for this quarter.
