Should Investors Be Playing in Hasbro or Mattel?


Or might there be even more fun in Target?

Potash (POT):
A Soleil analyst downgraded the company to Sell.

I'm not feeling a lot of love for Potash right now. But if the stock were to pull back to the $80s for some reason, I'd probably take another look. Keep in mind that it's done a pretty good job exceeding Street expectations this past year and is expected to kick out some decent earnings in 2010, so I don't want to count it out entirely.

Bottom line, I'm putting this one on the radar screen, and I have a feeling I'll be revisiting the story in the New Year.

Palm, Inc
Macquarie upped the company to Outperform and I wanted to weigh in.

I'll be the first to admit that the shares appear more attractive than they did near their highs, but I'm not climbing aboard on the heels of this news. As I've said before, with a palm full of red expected this year, I have no inclination to grab onto the shares. Why should I? If it comes down to the single-digits, however, or if the profit picture suddenly clears, I'll revisit.

For my last take on the company, see Why Palm's First-Quarter Beat Isn't Enough.

Have a great day!
