Top 5 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

Introduction

Politicians in Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island have put aside moral and/or addiction concerns over gambling. Instead, they recently asked why all the gambling dollars from their citizens go to the casinos (and governments) in Connecticut and New Jersey. They responded by approving for new gaming facilities in all three states. Below, data on these actions is presented with commentary.

The Current Situation

Table 1 provides gambling revenues and how they have changed since 2007 for northeast US states, with California, Nevada and Macau included as points of reference. The growth in Macau has been truly amazing. And additional facilities continue to be built there. However, as noted in an earlier piece, Japan has just approved a number of new integrated resort casinos. And these can be expected to siphon off some of the gambling from Macau, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.

Gambling revenues in Nevada, New Jersey, and Connecticut have not recovered from the 2008 global recession caused by the US banking collapse.

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019: Netease.com Inc.(NTES)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    News articles about NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) have been trending somewhat positive this week, Accern reports. Accern ranks the sentiment of news coverage by reviewing more than 20 million news and blog sources. Accern ranks coverage of companies on a scale of negative one to one, with scores closest to one being the most favorable. NetEase earned a media sentiment score of 0.23 on Accern’s scale. Accern also assigned news coverage about the technology company an impact score of 47.5808045346287 out of 100, meaning that recent news coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an effect on the company’s share price in the next few days.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Investors in NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) have generally seen their company benefit from a strong environment in the Chinese video game industry. Impressive growth in revenue and profits in past years helped fuel impressive gains for NetEase shares, and the appetite for more from consumers in China and elsewhere has seemed insatiable. Yet in every growth stock’s experience, a company eventually starts to face challenges in sustaining growth, and the key question becomes what that company does to restart its growth engines.

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019: Home Depot, Inc. (HD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Hill]

    Hill: We’reback on schedule. We had taped a couple of episodes to run Monday and Tuesday. We’re talking newstoday. We have luxury retail, we have general retail. We’re going to start with home improvement retail. Shares ofLowe’s up10% this morning despite the fact that, aspretty much everyoneshould have expected,same-store sales came in low. We had talked about this last week with Home Depot(NYSE:HD) and the weather in April really affecting Home Depot. No surprise that it affected Lowe’s as well. Whyis the stock up 10%?

  • [By Matthew Cochrane]

    When Lowe’s Companies, Inc. (NYSE:LOW) announced its second-quarter earnings last month, the big news was the naming of Marvin Ellison as its new CEO, who clearly faces some challenges ahead. Lost amid the change at the top, however, is that despite the company’s somewhat disappointing quarterly results and the fact that it still has some catching up to do with respect to its archrival Home Depot Inc (NYSE:HD), the company remains in a decent position overall.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Brown Capital Management LLC lowered its position in Home Depot Inc (NYSE:HD) by 4.1% during the fourth quarter, according to its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The institutional investor owned 14,573 shares of the home improvement retailer’s stock after selling 620 shares during the quarter. Brown Capital Management LLC’s holdings in Home Depot were worth $2,762,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Like its rival Home Depot(NYSE:HD) did a week before,Lowe’s(NYSE:LOW) just announced first-quarter earnings results that were hurt by a soft start to the critical spring selling season. The home improvement retailer suffered from a more significant slowdown than its larger peer as winter weather depressed demand for seasonal outdoor products. Yet management still affirmed its full-year forecast.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Fresh from its first $100 billion sales year ever, Home Depot (NYSE:HD) is set to kick off fiscal 2018 with more positive news for shareholders. The home improvement retailer’s first-quarter results, due out on May 15, likely benefited from U.S. economic growth and more market share gains that were just slightly offset by challenges like increased competition and higher mortgage rates.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now: AltaGas Ltd. (ATGFF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    AltaGas (OTCPK:ATGFF) agreed to acquire WGL (WGL) in January 2017, and the acquisition is still pending regulatory approval in DC, which is expected mid-2018. WGL operates Washington Gas, the gas utility in the region. The interesting play here I think is AltaGas. It offers a fairly well covered 8.5%+ dividend but has been beaten down as a result of concerns over the price paid for the WGL acquisition and the debt it will be required to take on in the deal. If the WGL acquisition does not receive regulatory approval, it’s very possible that AltaGas goes up. And if WGL is approved, it’s obviously a much better acquisition if Amazon picks anywhere in the DC area, as that should fuel a significant population increase for the gas utility business (some estimates of up to 1 million over 10 to 15 years). The projected growth in the gas utility business can serve as the foundation for AltaGas’s broader operations and allow them to finance debt at more attractive levels going forward. A mere re-rating to a market AFFO multiple would lead to substantial gains from the current 10-20% discount to market AFFO multiples, and a premium driven by the growth in Washington Gas could warrant a 10-20% premium to market AFFO multiples.

Top Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Source: ThinkstockUntil about 2008 or so, discussion about the future price of crude oil was directed by the concept of peak oil. That is, when does the world reach peak production, after which the price of crude will skyrocket. In less than a decade, the discussion is now focused on the concept of “peak demand,” the point at which global demand for crude begins to decline.

The recent Oil & Money conference in London sharpened the focus on peak demand. Saudi Arabia’s minister of energy and industry, Khalid Al-Falih, told conference attendees that cutbacks in capital spending on exploration, forced on the industry by low prices for the past twoyears, could mean that shortfalls in supply are coming.
