(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.
WASHINGTON/NEW YORK, Feb 5 (Reuters) – The U.S. Secret
Service visited the office of a Pennsylvania-based refrigeration
contractor, Fazio Mechanical Services, in connection with an
investigation of the Target Corp consumer data breach, a
spokesman for the agency said on Wednesday.
Fazio is the largest refrigeration contractor in the Western
Pennsylvania region, and Target is one of its clients, according
to the Sharpsburg-based company’s website.
