TheStreet Ratings rates Hasbro as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, revenue growth, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Marine Products Corporation ( MPX), down 3.3%, American Woodmark Corporation ( AMWD), down 3.2%, Bassett Furniture Industries ( BSET), down 2.5% and Manchester United PLC Class A ( MANU), down 2.3% , were all laggards within the consumer durables industry with Sensata Technologies Holding N.V ( ST) being today's consumer durables industry laggard.
