Whether or not Tru Kids will be successful in relaunching ToysR Us will be determined by their management and how they attempt to succeed in an ever so growing online buying environment. If we see a return of US stores, this could be very positive news for toy makers, Hasbro, Mattel, and JAKKS Pacific, Inc. These three companies saw a loss of anywhere between 10-20% loss of revenue when Toys R Us closed up shop. If we see a roadmap to opening up stores, we may see a key bottom put in place for toy companies.

The Nasdaq trades higher by 0.2%, off the session the highs as the markets remain focused on trade negotiations with United States and China.
