Top Casino Stocks To Own Right Now

Shares of casino operators have been on the rise after news broke that monthly gaming revenue in Macau increased for the first time since May of 2014, likely driven mostly by new openings. The news sent shares of Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) up 7.4%, shares of Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ:MPEL) up 8.7%, shares of Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) up 3.4%, and shares of MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM) up 2.9% over the course of two trading sessions. In what follows, I will look at the data and give an indication of what it should mean for investors moving forward.

A look at Macau

In the table below, you can see year-over-year changes in gaming revenue for Macau so far this year. Every single month has seen a deterioration in the market but that decline appeared to improve over the past couple of months, leading me to state in a prior article that although I was not going to get my hopes up, the stabilization may lead investors to realize down the line that we have hit or a re nearing a turning point for the industry. The one exception to the year-over-year decline in sales for the region came in August, when revenue rose 1.1% to 18.8 billion patacas (the equivalent of $2.4 billion) and this seems to confirm my earlier sentiment.

Top Casino Stocks To Own Right Now: Galaxy Resources Limited (GALXF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    ILC reminds me of Critical Elements [TSXV:CRE] (OTCQX:CRECF) having five projects (CRE has 11), and also of Galaxy Resources (ASX:GXY) (OTCPK:GALXF) by being diversified across brine and spodumene and across three continents. Also some similarity with Neo Lithium’s (OTC:NTTHF) [TSXV:NLC] early stage Argentinean brine project which I recently wrote about here. However, ILC trades at a much smaller market cap of US$8m to that of Critical Elements (US$85m) or Galaxy Resources (US$724m). This is partly due to ILC giving away significant percentages of their projects, and because they are still in the early stages of development.

However, even with this variety of investment vehicles, we were missing a very useful tool – options selling. This article will detail eight different option-selling trades for New Tech giant Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Old Tech giant Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT).

On CAPS, 96% of the 420 members who have rated Tupperware believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star joryko, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

With 61% of its sales coming from emerging markets, 24% of company revenues coming from its rapidly growing Beauty and Personal Care segment, and its continued payment of a 3% dividend, Tupperware offers quite a lot to investors.

However, the company’s biggest weapon, and the reason I’m interested, is its INNOVATION.

25% of the company’s sales come from products that were brought to market within the last 2 years. While this puts them at risk of having to continually innovate, I believe the opportunity of huge new products outweighs the risk of failing to create them.

With a slight decline in stock price from the slowdown in emerging markets, I was able to jump in on a great company at a fair price. 5+ years.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong five-star rating, Tupperware may not be your top choice.

In fact, one home run investing opportunity has been slipping under Wall Street’s radar for months. But it won’t stay hidden much longer. Forward-thinking energy players such as General Electric and Ford have already plowed sizable amounts of research capital into this little-known stock, because they know it holds the key to the explosive profit power of the coming “no choice fuel revolution.” Luckily, there’s still time for you to get on board if you act quickly.
