Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer checked in with Brian Goldner, chairman and CEO at toymaker Hasbro (HAS) - Get Report , which despite reporting stronger-than-expected earnings, saw its shares fall 8.6% on the day. Investors appear worried about the company's long-term guidance, given the bankruptcy filing by Toys R Us.
Goldner said that they didn't have any advance notice that Toys R Us was going to file for bankruptcy, but when they found out, Hasbro took a few days' pause to get the information it needed and work out a new agreement with the retailer just before the crucial holiday season. He said that agreement has been signed and shipments continue to flow to Toys R Us.
Goldner noted that while Toys R Us is still a great partner for Hasbro, his company has expanded and diversified its retail footprint to include dollar stores and discounters, omni-channel and online retailers as well as outlets around the globe. So while Toys R Us caused a short-term revision in their plans, 2018 and beyond remains strong.
Hasbro's "My Little Pony" franchise, for example, is the subject of a new Hollywood movie and is performing very well, Goldner said. Their packaged goods and game businesses are both up and they continue to see good box office sales and look forward to the home video and streaming revenue streams after that. Home entertainment is a new category for Hasbro, but it's exciting and growing, he said.
Goldner is looking forward to the 2018 movie lineup which will include Star Wars, Marvel, The Avengers, Han Solo and Transformers tie-ins.
