Company Description

Why We Like It:
Higher payroll taxes and rising gasoline prices should be having a negative effect on consumer spending. Yet investors are not worried about a slowdown in consumer spending if shares of MAT are any sign. The stock is trading near multi-year highs and poised to breakout from a two-week consolidation pattern.

I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $41.35. If triggered our long-term target is $44.85. We may have to exercise some patience on this trade. It could take a while to get to the $45.00 level since MAT doesn't move very fast but the long-term trend is definitely higher.

Trigger @ 41.35

Suggested Position: buy MAT stock @ (trigger)
