Good afternoon,

In our Daily Double today TMF Edible wrote about Jakks Pacific. The article is named: Wrestling is Hot for JAKKS Pacific


How Could You Have Found This Double?

"Toy-rific!" That's how JAKKS chose to open its letter to shareholders in its 1998 annual report. And why not? Just three years ago the company was raking in just $12 million in sales and barely a million in profits.
The growth has been as phenomenal as it has been consistent. Over the last 12 quarters the company has managed year-over-year growth in both sales and earnings. That is an impressive feat in light of what is typically a fickle industry. JAKKS has also shown sustainable profits in and out of season, which is rare in the realm of toy companies that normally report losses in the first half of the year leading up to the holiday payday.

The WWF action figures move and speak -- they even sweat. Investors who have watched the company's positive quarterly trends over the last few years probably didn't have to sweat it out themselves. They knew JAKKS. They knew that market radars would eventually hone in on the company -- the 9th fastest grower, according to the most recent Fortune ranking of "America's 100 Fastest-Growing Companies."
The company has also popped up on the Foolish Eight screen of fast growing small companies.

Keep Foolish and Prosper,
