I think the current stock performance is somewhat reflective of people who jumped on board solely on Star Wars hype, got disapointed that HAS didn't perform like a 'net stock overnight, and then dumped it at a loss...

yeah, i'm guilty of that.

with the Star Wars hype (and the subsequent downturn) combined with a slumping overall market in May, HAS has taken a bit of a double-whammy short-term beating.

my first investment, and i sold at a 5.5% loss. (shoulda sold at that peak!)

since then, i've moved my money elsewhere, recovering about half the loss so far. yet 3/6/9/12 months/years from now, selling may have been a mistake. nobody ever knows for sure.

and yes, i'm still keeping track of HAS almost on a daily basis. guess you never forget your first!

may the Force be with you, and Fool on!

P.S. i still think HAS has a very good chance of whupping MAT's butt over the next few years!
