Today’s quick video takes a closer look at Hasbro (HAS - Analyst Report) stock ahead of their earnings report. This company has struggled a bit this year in terms of its stock price, even though it has several strong brands. In fact, shares are quickly approaching 2016 lows, so investors will need a solid report to turn this trend around.

The good news for HAS is that it has an excellent track record in earnings season, and it hasn’t missed estimates since 2014. This shows that the company has an excellent ability to manage expectations, and it is part of the reason why HAS currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (buy). We should also note that HAS just moved out of hold territory within the past week, and that the company also has a strong fundamental picture.

Still, it has been a bit of a struggle for HAS to grow earnings, and the consensus estimate is basically flat. Especially troubling is a negative Earnings ESP, at -1.1%, which suggests that the most recent earnings estimates have been a bit lower. This is something that investors definitely don’t want to see heading into a report, and it might mean that it could be a rockier report than you might think given its ‘buy’ rating.
