NEW YORK, NY – February 19, 2019 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) has been investigating claims on behalf of investors who purchased shares of Mattel, Inc. (Nasdaq: MAT).  Purchasers of Mattel securities between February 7 and 15, 2019 may be affected.  

On February 7, 2019, after the close of trading, Mattel released its fourth quarter 2018 earnings.  According to the Motley Fool, “[s]olid growth from the Barbie brand also impressed investors and as a result, the stock was up 22.5% as of 12:28 p.m. EST.”  

On February 15, 2019, during an analyst meeting at the annual Toy Fair industry event in New York, Mattel disclosed that its gross sales for 2019 will be the same as 2018, reporting a slowing demand for its Barbie doll.  Following this news, shares of Mattel declined by more than 18% to close at $13.82 per share.

According to Marketwatch, “Mattel investors who managed to lock in profits at the higher prices were fortunate, including a C-level Mattel executive who sold all 10,904 shares he owned [on February 11, 2019] at $15.715.  The stock closed [on February 15, 2019] at $13.82.”
