The company says it will buy back up to $5B worth of it stock.

Inventory overhang whacks bottom line at Mattel

Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT) is down 4.20% in AH trading after the toy company misses estimates with its Q1 report.

Global Barbie sales fell 13% during the quarter, while Fischer-Price sales fell 9%.

The company’s gross margin rate came in at 37.9%, well below the consensus estimate for a mark of 43.1%.

“Results were below our expectations due to the retail inventory overhang coming out of the holiday period,” warns CEO Margo Georgiadis.

“We are confident we have worked through the majority of this overhang and look forward to a strong launch of Disney’s Cars 3 theatrical release in the second quarter,” she adds.

Previously: Mattel misses by $0.15, misses on revenue (April 20)

Sell-side comes to New Residential defense

Sucked into the Ocwen Financial vortex today, New Residential (NYSE:NRZ) was down as much as 13% before closing the regular session off 7.65%.

To review, Ocwen handles the servicing for a sizable number of MSRs owned by New Residential (New Residential takes care of the excess servicing). Presumably, New Residential could move servicing elsewhere were something bad to happen to Ocwen.

Citi came out in defense of NRZ shortly before the close, and now comes FBR’s Jessica Levi-Ribner, telling clients to buy NRZ on the overreaction to the Ocwen news. It’s possible, she says, New Residential has already begun transferring servicing rights to its own name, thus protecting it from counter-party risk.
