"While results were clearly disappointing and well below our numbers, we believe a certain degree of earnings risk around the holiday season is reflected in the stock HAS has underperformed Mattel, Inc. (MAT-NASDAQ) by approximately 41% and the S&P by roughly 39% since December 1, 2011 , particularly as there has been elevated concern in the channel surrounding the success of Transformers," Keybanc Capital Markets wrote in a report on Jan. 18.
