DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser raised the price target on Mattel Inc. (NASDAQ: MAT) to $45.00 (from $38.00) while maintaining a Buy rating following strong Q4 results. The firm also raised 2023E EBITDA by 16%.

The analyst commented, "MAT reported a big 4Q21 upside surprise, guided to sales +8%-10% in 2022 (consensus was +4%), and revised up its 2023 targets, saying that EPS should exceed $1.90 (our estimate was $1.72). The turnaround is complete and the company is now entering the growth phase. Balance sheet deleveraging will now transition to strategic M&A and/or share repurchase. We are raising our 2023E EBITDA by 16% and boosting our PT to $45 from $38, based on 13x 2023E EBITDA of $1,354M. We think the stock is cheap at just 7.6x 2023E EBITDA, given the growth profile of the company. We reiterate our BUY ahead of the analyst meeting on February 18th."
