    Both $MAT and $HAS are losing share hand-over-fist to $LF http://bit.ly/WkCWuI - take the $$$ missing at both and add to $LF and their upcoming big 4Q upside.

    Unlikely. MAT is a solid company with a better product portfolio than HAS. LF is a niche player that doesn't really compete in the same space outside of younger kids stuff.

     

    I am surprised that MAT hasn't tried to outright buy LF. Maybe they are waiting for the share price to go under $5 again
