Oraclegained 6.2% to $45.73 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.2% to 2,381.38.

Oracle’s top-notch earnings and guidance earned it a downgrade to Buy from Strong Buy from CFRA’s Scott Kessler:

We raise our 12-month target by $4 to $51. Peers have a median forward P/E of 19.5X and P/E-to-growth of 2.3. Using these multiples results in our target. We raise our EPS estimates for FY 17 (May) by $0.08 to $2.64 and FY 18 by $0.02 to $2.83, and set FY 19’s at $3.09. ORCL posts Feb-Q non-GAAP EPS of $0.69 vs. $0.64, $0.07 over our estimate. Sales rose 2%, with a 62% increase in cloud revenues, accounting for 13% of total sales. ORCL raises its dividend by 27% and has an implied yield of 1.6%. After recent appreciation, we see ORCL as an attractive, but not a compelling value.

Job-hopping is so common these days it’s practically something employers come to expect. The typical worker will have 12 different employers in his or her lifetime, and millennials are certainly no exception. In fact, younger workers are statistically twice as likely to leave their jobs in search of better offers, according to new data from Visier. And while you’d think money would be the driving force in their decisions, here are some of the other pressing reasons why millennials have such a strong tendency to jump ship.

1. They’re not getting promoted

Getting promoted is something workers of all ages strive for. But millennials in particular seem to be fixated on career growth and rightfully so. And in a day and age when a new job could be a simple click or phone call away, workers who haven’t yet planted roots at a given company might have no problem moving on if they feel they’re not being presented with early opportunities to climb the ladder.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

Gaming companies aren’t differentiated by the table games they offer, what slot machines they have, or even what comps they give to players. If you think about it, casino games themselves are pretty similar whether you’re in Iowa or Macau. 

What differentiates gaming companies today are the resorts they build and where those resorts are located. Put a megaresort on the desolate north end of the Las Vegas Strip, and you might go bankrupt before it’s completed (see Echelon, Las Vegas Plaza, and Fontainebleau), but if you’re building a multi-billion dollar resort in Macau or Singapore, it’s almost impossible to lose money. No company has better locations than Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS), which is why it’s one of the most profitable companies in gaming. Here’s where the company’s money comes from. 

Image source: Las Vegas Sands.

Where Las Vegas Sands’ cash comes from

Revenue isn’t a great way to measure a gaming company’s success, so investors should look at the cash flow coming from gaming resorts. The best measure of cash flow for a gaming company is property EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. The biggest investment a gaming company makes is building the resort itself, so once the resort is built, it’s appropriate to measure ongoing cash flow, something EBITDA does better than net income.

    FLIR Systems (NASDAQ:FLIR) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “FLIR Systems gross margins remain vulnerable to a host of factors, including product mix changes and manufacturing cost absorption. Also, high manufacturing cost absorption is likely to restrict the company’s growth. Moreover, factors like imposition of governmental controls and restrictions on export of technology remain concerns. Poor economic conditions across FLIR Systems’ key operating regions may hamper capital investment and consumer spending, thereby weighing on the company’s profitability. Moreover, the company’s lead time for licensing the orders have increased, resulting in a lengthy order acceptance period, which is likely to hurt the top line. However, it enjoys a strong top-line growth, driven by impressive performance across most of its segments. In the past six months, FLIR Systems’ shares have outperformed compared with the industry average.”
