Hasbro misses Wall Street estimates in holiday quarter

By Dhanya Skariachan

(Reuters) – Toymaker Hasbro Inc (HAS.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), known for brands such as Monopoly, Nerf and My Little Pony, on Monday reported lower-than-expected quarterly results on weak sales in North America during the holiday season, and its shares fell more than 3 percent.

The latest U.S. holiday sales turned out to be among the weakest since 2008, when the U.S. economy was reeling from a recession. Bad weather, limited discretionary dollars for many shoppers and six fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas in 2013 hurt results for many companies.
