Hot Casino Stocks For 2019

Although the idea MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM) might step in to buy troubled Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) was always more speculative than based on any concrete evidence, the chances of it actually happening have now been reduced to virtually nil.

MGM just announced a $2 billion stock repurchase authorization, and though the program doesn’t guarantee the money will be spent on buybacks, it pretty much indicates the casino operator has no intention of buying its rival.

MGM Resorts spent $7 billion over the past few years expanding its operations such as buying the Borgata casino in Atlantic City. Now it wants to buy its stock. Image source: Borgata.

Spending a lot on stock

CEO Jim Murren says the amount authorized indicates not only MGM’s financial strength, but also the casino’s “continued commitment to returning capital to our shareholders.”

    National Grid (NYSE:NGG) has been about as solid of a dividend investment as any investor could ask for over the past decade. The company is the epitome of utility stocks as its regulated electricity and natural gas transmission businesses bear almost no commodity price or power-generation risk.
