Mattel has worst day in nearly 20 years after undercutting analysts’ 2019 estimates

Toymaker Mattel had its worst trading day in nearly 20 years on Friday after the company posted weaker-than-expected full-year 2019 guidance during an analyst meeting in New York. The company said it expects adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of $350 million to $400 million for 2019, below analysts’ expectations of $551.6 million, according to FactSet data. The company also expects sales to be flat in 2019 when adjusted for currency. Mattel’s forecast comes after the company reported strong sales

Mattel has worst day in nearly 20 years after undercutting analysts' 2019 estimates

Toymaker Mattel had its worst trading day in nearly 20 years on Friday after the company posted weaker-than-expected full-year 2019 guidance during an analyst meeting in New York. Shares of the company finished the day down more than 18 percent.

The company said it expects adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of $350 million to $400 million for 2019, below analysts’ expectations of $551.6 million, according to FactSet data.

The company also expects sales to be flat in 2019 when adjusted for currency.

“Either they are super lowballing or the company is falling apart,” Linda Bolton Weiser, analyst at Davidson, told CNBC.

Shares of the company fell as low as 23 percent on Friday and trading was halted at least twice due to volatility.

Mattel’s forecast comes after the company reported strong sales during the fourth quarter of 2018 last week.

The toymaker has struggled previously with weak sales of iconic brands such as American Girl and Fisher-Price. In recent years, more children have gravitated toward video games and electronics instead of traditional toys. Mattel was also hit hard by the bankruptcy of Toys R Us.

Under CEO Ynon Kreiz, Mattel has embraced a two-pronged strategy aimed at turning around the troubled toymaker. To start, Kreiz has worked to cut $650 million in costs, a combination of laying off 2,200 workers and shuttering its New York office.

Kreiz has also hoped to revive sales by creating a film department to bring its famous toy properties to the big screen. In January, the company announced it had tapped Margot Robbie (“Suicide Squad,” “I, Tonya”) to play Barbie and revealed it would produce a live-action Hot Wheels film. On Friday, the company announced that it would also be producing an American Girl movie.

America's favorite Valentine's Day candy is missing — here are some other options

This Valentine’s Day, consumers shouldn’t panic that the original conversation hearts candy isn’t on shelves. Other candy brands are stepping up to fill the void.

Sweethearts conversation hearts are unavailable for the first since since 1866 as the brand’s new owner, Spangler Candy, acquired it too late to produce the candy in time for the holiday. Spangler, best known for its Dum Dum lollipops, said in January that conversation hearts will return next year.

Americans are expected to spend $1.8 billion on candy this Valentine’s Day, according to the National Retail Federation. Some of that money will no doubt be spent on other versions of conversation hearts, in addition to chocolates.

Brach’s released three new lines of flavors for its conversation hearts this year. Brach’s, which has sold conversation hearts since the 1960s, said in a statement that it has been the market leader in conversation hearts for years. Candystore.com reported that Sweethearts’ version was the popular candy for the holiday last year.

“Brach’s size, texture, colors, sayings, flavors and quality provide the perfect sweet solution for those conversation heart lovers who are lamenting over reports that this Valentine’s favorite is not available this year,” Hans Becher, general manager of Brach’s and seasonal confections at parent company Ferrara Candy, said in a statement.

Spangler did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

For something a little more sour and less chalky, both Nestle’s SweeTarts and Mondelez’s Sour Patch Kids have their own take on conversation hearts. Besides the difference in flavor, the candies’ sayings aren’t as visible as those on Brach’s or Sweethearts’ versions.

New England Confectionery Co., also known as Necco, went out of business in July and sold Sweethearts and its other candy brands at auction. Round Hill Investments, which brought Hostess brands back from the brink, acquired Necco’s brands but sold Sweethearts and the Necco wafer brand several months later.

But fans of Sweethearts might be glad that the candy isn’t available this year. Bloomberg reported in October that exterminator visits to the factory had grown sporadic — and rat sightings became much more common.

A ‘sad day’ for New York: Democratic congressman says Amazon backed out of HQ2 deal ‘too quickly’

“I think it’s a sad day for New York,” the congressman said on “Closing Bell.” Amazon backed out of the deal “a little too quickly in my estimation,” he said. Gianaris shrugged off the poll results Amazon cited, saying Amazon had commissioned the poll itself. This could have been an opportunity for Amazon and New York to compromise on a deal that would work, he added. She represents parts of New York City that border the formerly planned headquarters.

A 'sad day' for New York: Democratic congressman says Amazon backed out of HQ2 deal 'too quickly'

New York is missing out on billions of dollars in investments now that Amazon has canceled plans to add corporate offices in the borough of Queens, Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., told CNBC on Thursday.

“I think it’s a sad day for New York,” the congressman said on “Closing Bell.” “This was a long-term investment in the city.”

The development would have included 25,000 jobs — many paying $150,000 or more — that could have diversified New York’s economy beyond financial services and helped defend against an economic downturn, said Meeks, whose congressional district covers much of Queens.

Amazon backed out of the deal “a little too quickly in my estimation,” he said.

The Seattle-based tech giant decided against building part of its so-called HQ2 in the Long Island City neighborhood after facing pressure from a chorus of local, state and congressional officials. Some Democratic politicians were critical of the private negotiations that led to a deal that traded $3 billion in tax incentives for the project.

“It’s about standing up for a community in a state that ended up in a very bad place that we should have never been in,” state Sen. Michael Gianaris said in a later appearance on “Closing Bell.” The Democrat has represented the state’s 12th District, which includes Long Island City, since 2001. He said the neighborhood is being overdeveloped and gentrifying.

Amazon said it backed off the plans because “a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us” even though “polls show that 70 percent of New Yorkers support our plans and investment.”

Gianaris shrugged off the poll results Amazon cited, saying Amazon had commissioned the poll itself. His reasons for opposing the deal include the company’s anti-union stance and inclination to work with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“I do not think it’s a good idea anywhere in this country to be throwing subsidies around to companies that don’t need it because they’re extorting us for their presence,” Gianaris said.

Meeks likened the $3 billion subsidy to investing money in a bank account that would have yielded $25 billion in future revenues for the city and state, along with jobs of the future. This could have been an opportunity for Amazon and New York to compromise on a deal that would work, he added.

“I wish Amazon had stuck it out a little bit longer, because in the long term I believe that this would have been a good deal for both,” Meeks said. “I think there’s enough room for blame on both sides.”

Gianaris countered that sentiment, saying the subway system is in “shambles” but tax breaks are being given to a company “that doesn’t need it.”

“The moment someone said, ‘We don’t like what you’ve done here, let’s have a bigger conversation,’ they left rather than having that conversation,” he said.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who helped lead the charge to lure Amazon to the state alongside New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, said in a statement that a “small group [of] politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community” and that “they should be held accountable for this lost economic opportunity.”

In his own statement, de Blasio said, “We gave Amazon the opportunity to be a good neighbor” but the company “threw away that opportunity” in lieu of working with the community.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who was one of the loudest critics of the move, said in a tweet that “a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world.” She represents parts of New York City that border the formerly planned headquarters.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., also celebrated Amazon’s withdrawal, tweeting that the company “walked away from billions in taxpayer bribes, all because some elected officials in New York aren’t sucking up to them enough.” She is seeking the Democratic nomination for president of the United States.

Shares of Amazon closed down more than 1 percent Thursday.

Japanese women challenge Valentine’s Day tradition of giving chocolate to male coworkers

Valentine’s Day comes first, so women set the bar for who receives a treat as well as the caliber of the treat. Still, 35 percent of women plan on handing out chocolate treats to male coworkers this year, according to a poll by a Tokyo department store. More women, though, about 60 percent, plan to indulge in some self-love this Valentine’s Day by purchasing chocolates for themselves. These company bans on giri choco also seem to be reshaping the country’s notions of who gives gifts on Feb. 14.

Japanese women challenge Valentine's Day tradition of giving chocolate to male coworkers

Valentine’s Day comes first, so women set the bar for who receives a treat as well as the caliber of the treat. Such pressure has led women to spend thousands of yen on giri choco for colleagues to avoid causing offense in past years, but now more and more companies are banning this form of gift giving altogether. Forty percent of workers see it as a form of abuse and harassment, according to Japan Today.

In interviews conducted by newsite ANN, Japanese workers favored such bans and said they felt it eased pressures on women and had a positive effect on coworker relationships.

Still, 35 percent of women plan on handing out chocolate treats to male coworkers this year, according to a poll by a Tokyo department store.

More women, though, about 60 percent, plan to indulge in some self-love this Valentine’s Day by purchasing chocolates for themselves. Only 36 percent plan to use sweet treats as a love token for partners or crushes.

These company bans on giri choco also seem to be reshaping the country’s notions of who gives gifts on Feb. 14. News outlet SoraNews24 recently reported on a growing trend — gyaku choco, or “reverse chocolate” — that has men giving sweets to women. The publication notes that it’s still far from the norm.

Beware this Valentine’s Day: Romance scams cost Americans $143 million last year

Beware this Valentine's Day: Romance scams cost Americans $143 million last year

Many people looking for love online are finding loss instead — roughly $2,600 in lost cash that was lovingly wired to an online sweetheart who mysteriously disappeared.

The Federal Trade Commission received 21,000 reports of romance scams in 2018 — its highest reported number yet —with victims losing a total of $143 million, the agency said Tuesday.

The median loss from a romance scam is seven times higher than other types of fraud, the FTC reported, with a median loss of $2,600 for each scam.

Romance scammers will create fake online profiles using photos taken off the internet to lure people in. They’ll then portray those attractive, made-up personas on various dating apps and social networks not reserved for dating, like Facebook.

Scammers often dodge video chats or in-person visits by saying they’re stationed abroad in the military, said the FTC.

Once relationships are established, though, the scammers will tell victims of a medical emergency or misfortune and request money. They might also ask for money to help pay for a visit.

The business of romance scamming is steadily rising, and it’s more than doubled in recent years.

In 2015, 8,600 reports were filed, with a total of $33 million reported in losses, said the FTC.

People aged 40 to 69 report losing money at the highest rates, which makes them twice more likely to fall for the schemes than people in their 20s, said the FTC. People over 70 report the highest individual median losses at $10,000.

Most people paid scammers through wire transfers and gift cards, according to the report.

The FTC recommends that people do not send money to those they’ve never met in person, talk to friends and family members about potential concerns and do a reverse-image search of online acquaintances.

OPEC cut production by nearly 800,000 barrels a day in January, pumping just above its oil target

The slight miss comes as the group once again cut its outlook for global oil demand in 2019. OPEC is partnering with 10 nonmember nations, including Russia, to keep 1.2 million bpd off the market. In January, OPEC managed to remove 797,000 barrels per day from the market by holding back supply. The group aimed to cut a combined 812,000 bpd in a bid to drain oversupply from the oil market. Total OPEC production stood at just over 30.8 million bpd in January, down from 31.6 million bpd in December

OPEC cut production by nearly 800,000 barrels a day in January, pumping just above its oil target

OPEC fell just short of its production goal in January, as a fresh round of output cuts from the 14-nation producer group got under way.

The slight miss comes as the group once again cut its outlook for global oil demand in 2019. OPEC also slightly increased its forecast for supply from the United States and other non-OPEC nations.

OPEC is partnering with 10 nonmember nations, including Russia, to keep 1.2 million bpd off the market. The so-called OPEC+ alliance aims to prevent another price-crushing oil glut like the one that gripped the market between 2014 and 2016.

In January, OPEC managed to remove 797,000 barrels per day from the market by holding back supply. The group aimed to cut a combined 812,000 bpd in a bid to drain oversupply from the oil market.

Total OPEC production stood at just over 30.8 million bpd in January, down from 31.6 million bpd in December, according to independent sources cited by the group in its monthly report.

Here's how a massive nationwide protest against Maduro could shape Venezuela's future

Venezuela’s opposition supporters will take to the streets for nationwide anti-government protests on Tuesday, ratcheting up the pressure on embattled President Nicolas Maduro.

It comes at a time when tensions in Venezuela are reaching boiling point, with the South American country in the midst of the Western Hemisphere’s worst humanitarian crisis in recent memory.

The anti-government demonstration, organized by opposition leader Juan Guaido, takes place on Youth Day in Venezuela.

The day commemorates young people who fought and died in the Battle of La Victoria in 1814 during Venezuela’s war for independence. It is widely recognized as a day to recognize the role that the youth play in shaping the country’s economic and social future.
