Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

Steve Wynn agreed to give up control over his ex-wife’s shares of Wynn Resorts Ltd., potentially ending their six-year legal battle days after he resigned from the casino company following accusations of sexual harassment.

If a judge approves, Steve Wynn’s voting power will shrink to 11.8 percent of the shares, with Elaine Wynn able to determine what to do with her 9.4 percent stake. That may leave Wynn Resorts more vulnerable to activists or potential acquirers.

The company said in a filing Friday that Steve Wynn has no immediate plans to sell his shares and would only do so in an orderly fashion in any case. At one point Wynn, 76, had corralled more than a third of the voting rights at the company, making an unfriendly takeover virtually impossible.

Elaine Wynn previously said she wanted the ability to sell her shares so she could focus on philanthropy. Her spokeswoman declined to comment Friday.
