10:55 EDTLFMattel topples after Q2 earnings miss estimates
Shares of global toy product manufacturer Mattel (MAT), are toppling over after the company's second quarter earnings results fell below analysts' consensus. WHAT'S NEW: Mattel's reported Q2 earnings per share of 8c, which was not comparable to a consensus of 18c since the company said its EPS number included a tax benefit of 11c per share and a negative impact of 7c per share of MEGA Brands acquisition and integration costs. Excluding both of these items, EPS was 3c per share. Mattel's Q2 revenue was $1.06B, which missed analysts' consensus estimates of $1.19B. For Q2, the company reported that its Girls and Boys Brands sales were down 13%, Fisher-Price Brands sales were down 17%, American Girl Bands revenue was up 6% and revenue from its Construction and Arts & Crafts Brands was $61.6M. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During its earnings conference conference call, Mattel said that it plans to increase advertising spending in the second half of the year to build momentum for key brands. It sees improving global trends in point-of-sale but says the company still has a lot of work to do to improve those trends. As Mattel looks to the third quarter, it sees continued challenges from current headwinds. With the MEGA brands deal now closed, the company aims to improve profitability of MEGA brands on a global basis and believes the acquisition will be accretive to earnings in fiscal year 2015. It expects lower international sales and is investing heavily in markets in Russia and China. Mattel is looking to maintain gross margins in the low to mid-50% range in near term. It noted that it aims to achieve a modest increase in SG&A due to severance and ongoing growth investments, excluding the MEGA Brands acquisition. Inventory fair value adjustment related to existing MEGA Brands-owned inventory should wind down in Q3, the company said. Amortization is expected to decrease to $17M in 2015 and $9M in 2016. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Mattel are down $2.31, or 5.92%, to $36.72 in morning trading. OTHERS TO WATCH: Mattel peer Hasbro (HAS), which reports quarterly earnings on July 21, is relatively flat at $52.59. JAKKS Pacific (JAKK) is up almost 1.5% to $8.20 and and LeapFrog (LF) is up 3.02% to $7.66.

10:56 EDTYELPFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.
