 Mattel, Hasbro, LeapFrog Enterprises, and Blyth Under StockCall's Microscope

PR Newswire

LONDON, March 20, 2013

LONDON, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Consumer spending in the U.S. has remained solid despite the expiration of
payroll tax cuts at the start of this year. The main reason behind improved
consumer confidence has been the recovery in the labor market. With the labor
market expected to continue to recover, consumer spending is likely to remain
robust. This should benefit toys & games makers such as Mattel Inc. (NASDAQ:
MAT), Hasbro Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), and LeapFrog Enterprises Inc. (NYSE: LF), as
well as for personal and household products maker Blyth Inc. (NYSE: BTH).
Consumer goods stocks ended on a mixed note in Tuesday's trading session as
the broad market continued to struggle on renewed concerns over the Eurozone
debt crisis. StockCall has released full comprehensive research on MAT, HAS,
LF, and BTH and these free technical analyses can be downloaded by signing up
