Our Top Pick for conservative investors for the coming year is a company that went through a management overhaul in 2015, leaving investors uncertain about the company’s future, observes Crista Huff, editor of Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor.
Mattel (MAT) markets toys globally under the brand names Mattel, Fisher-Price, RoseArt, Barbie, AmericanGirl and many more, including strategic relationships with Disney (DIS), Google (GOOGL) and YouTube.
As a result of its prior overhaul, the stock got left in the dust. Consumer goods stocks were additionally tossed aside during the post-election stock market run-up.
That gives investors a buying opportunity in the sector’s undervalued growth stocks, including MAT.
Mattel’s earnings per share, which will finish 2016 with weak 1-2% growth (December year-end), are expected to grow 38% in 2017!
This mid-cap stock’s 2017 price/earnings ratio is 16, and the dividend yield is a huge 5.4%. Mattel typically increases the dividend about once per year.

Beta Should Lead At The Start of A Rally: Best ideas in the first leg up: Marathon Oil, Devon Energy (DVN), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), and Continental Resources (CLR). If OPEC announces a cut, whether moderate or deep, we expect that in the initial move up, moderate value beta names, like Marathon Oil, Devon Energy, Anadarko Petroleum, andContinental Resources will lead.For a $5 increase in oil prices, we estimate 2017 cash flow per share would increase 12-18% for these stocks vs. the remainder of the group at 12%. Of these four, short interest is modest for all exceptContinental Resources at 25%, among the highest in our universe. Outperformance of these names should be driven by investors adding to long positions, not short covering.
