Hasbro benefits from Mattel acquisition would be immense, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser says that if The Wall Street Journal speculation of a Mattel (MAT) takeover by Hasbro (HAS) comes to fruition, at $18 per share price point the Hasbro EPS accretion potential could be at $7.50-$8.50. Weiser adds the benefits of the combination would be immense, noting that her analysis does not even include the revenue synergies potential, as Hasbro may apply its content development capabilities to Mattel's brands. The analyst keeps her Buy rating and $124 price target on Hasbro.

Jefferies views potential Hasbro, Mattel merger as possible
With highly different cultures and strategies, the possible merger between Hasbro (HAS) and Mattel (MAT) is less about financial accretion and more about risk/disruption, comparative uses of capital, and related returns, Jefferies analyst Stephanie Wissink tells investors in a research note. "Possible - yes; productive - less so," is how the analyst describes the possible tie-up. She believes the level of profit augmentation from a deal is heavily dependent on what kind of cost duplication actually exists and what levels of investment would be required to rebuild Mattel's sales model.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Jim Kelleher citing an increase in user engagement, strong growth in adjusted EBITDA, and anticipated return to annual revenue growth next year. 2. Mattel (MAT) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at DA Davidson with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser saying while the company suspended its dividend and saw a 51% decline in operating profit, she is positive on the company's 2-year $650M cost reduction program and plans to reduce its product range. 3. Wingstop (WING) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Chris O'Cull saying he thinks the consensus 2018 same-restaurant sales projection of 3% growth will prove conservative. 4. CACI (CACI) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Noble Financial with the firm's analyst saying the market overreacted to bookings and pipeline news, and views the pullback as a buying opportunity. 5. Regeneron (REGN) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Baird with analyst Brian Skorney citing better than expected Dupixent sales. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
