INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces Investigation on Behalf of Mattel, Inc. Investors (MAT)

gbaf1news

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Mattel, Inc. investors (Mattel or the Company) (NASDAQ: MAT) concerning the Company and its officers possible violations of federal securities laws.

On February 15, 2019, Mattel announced it would downgrade its 2019 forecast, reporting slowing demand for its Barbie doll. Reuters published an article on the companys adjusted forecast stating that it came barely a week after the company said strong holiday sales of Barbie drove a surprise fourth quarter profit. The Wall Street Journal also published an article on Mattels adjusted outlook, noting Mattels decision to announce an adjusted outlook just a week after earnings is bizarre, and further stating [M]attel isnt as healthy as it made out. Management should have been candid about that when it reported earnings instead of letting investors get unjustly excited. On this news, Mattels share price fell by more than 18%, closing at $13.82 on February 15, 2019, thereby injuring investors.
