Jefferies says Mattel valuation 'still stretched,' cuts target to $13
At first glance, Mattel's earnings report "was in range," but unpacking the results uncovered a "more challenging set of facts" with sales down 10%, Jefferies analyst Stephanie Wissink tells investors in a post-earnings research note. She lowered her estimates for Mattel and dropped her price target for the shares to $13 from $14. The multiple at current share levels is " still stretched," says Wissink.

Longer term, the analyst keeps his Outperform rating and $20 price target on Mattel and believes that its management "can facilitate needed changes in culture, product development, digital content, and partner relationships to drive sales and earnings growth."

The analyst says the early engagement appears impressive and player feedback has been mostly positive, likely leading to upside for the stock "if user growth and monetization trends can maintain the game's early momentum."

Thornton adds that his forward view of EA's console and PC franchises are unchanged, even though his outlook for mobile gaming which is about 12% of total sales is "incrementally negative".

Mohawk downgraded to Underperform at RBC Capital on competition risk
As previously reported, RBC Capital analyst Mike Dahl downgraded Mohawk to Underperform from Sector Perform and lowered his price target to $115 from $129. The analyst notes that while lower prices would typically support the company's stock price, he sees elevated "competition pressures" weighing on its market share along with the headwinds of a negative sales mix shift. Moreover, Dahl says the lower cost luxury vinyl product competitors should benefit further if U.S.-China trade dispute is resolved soon.

The analyst believes Expedia is a "compelling Buy" trading at nine times 2020 EBITDA and a discount to its 10%-15% EBITDA growth. It is rare to find a company trading at such a discount with 10% revenue growth, 13% EBITDA growth, and only one other main competitor, Thill tells investors in a research note titled "Our Best Deep Value Buy; Trip Going Well Ahead of Plan."

It appears Expedia has reached a point where visibility has improved relative to both top-line trends and ongoing spending initiatives, Olson tells investors in a post-earnings research note. Further, the analyst sees the company's hotel inventory acquisition efforts as the right long-term move for the business. He maintains an Overweight rating on Expedia.
