I am disappointed about the stock price, but not in HAS performance. Let me explain....

We bought around Xmas 98 (Furby craze) and in anticipation of Phantom Menace. Great time. The stock did terrifically through the first half of 99. Then MAT dropped dramatically. That, combined with the perception that Phantom Menace toys did not sell to expectations helped cause the stock to drop slowly to it current level.

The company had a terrific year....Furby is still a top seller....Phantom Menace was the top selling line of 99....several of the best selling computer games (like Roller Coaster Tycoon). All of which contributed to great earnings.

This company is definitely out of favor. All of the dollars are chasing tech (see QCOM and CSCO). Looks like the toys at the Toy Fair are being received very well.

Let's see what happens throughout 00.
