Hot Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

What happened 

Shares of Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ:CZR) jumped a whopping 34.6% in January, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence.

So what 

The big news in January was that Caesars will be the NFL’s first official casino partner. The NBA, MLB, and NHL have all struck deals with various casinos, but the NFL has started with Caesars. The deal gives Caesars the ability to market the NFL with Caesars properties but doesn’t include gambling or data feeds that have made deals with other leagues so valuable.

It also didn’t hurt that the market rose sharply on hope the Federal Reserve will keep interest rates low for longer than previously expected. Caesars and other gaming stocks are dependent on a strong economy for growth, so easy money is good news for them right now.
