Top 10 Casino Stocks To Own Right Now

Late last year, Japan legalized casinos in the country, opening up a gaming industry that could generate as much as $30 billion a year in revenues and become the second-largest casino market in the world. As several players scout for licenses, Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS) is ready to invest heavily in the region, committing to an initial investment of $10 billion. While this is a significant number, if Las Vegas Sands is able to capture a decent share in the market, it would make sense given the revenue potential of the market. Currently, Macau and Singapore are the largest value drivers of the company, together accounting for more than 80% of its valuation.

The company is heavily dependent on Macau for revenues, and regulation changes in the region have impacted it negatively. At its peak in 2013, Macau’s gaming market had reached a size of $45 billion. However, after stricter regulations imposed by Chinese regulators, revenues started slumping. In 2016, the total amount won by casinos in the region stood at nearly $28 billion. Japan is likely to emerge as a huge market for casinos, with annual revenue estimates ranging from $10 billion to $30 billion.

Top 10 Stocks To Invest In 2019: Crestwood Equity Partners LP(CEQP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP) isn’t a well-known name, it should be, especially by income-seeking investors. That’s because the high-yielding master limited partnership (MLP) offers an increasingly compelling combination of current income and future upside backed by strong financial metrics and clearly visible growth prospects. The company’s strong core and upside potential was on full display during the first quarter, which once again showed that this is an excellent income stock to own for the long haul. 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Meanwhile, Williams Companies recently announced several strategic moves that position it for additional growth. First, the company and its 50-50 joint venture partner, Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), agreed to expand their Jackalope Gas Gathering System and the associated Bucking Horse gas processing plant in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin to support the growth of Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK). Williams and Crestwood expect to finish the first phase of this expansion by the end of 2019, which coincides with Chesapeake’s plan to double its output from the region in the next year. They also noted that further expansions of the system might be needed soon, since regional growth could use up all its capacity by 2021.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP) has been one of the best-performing MLPs of 2018. Overall, it has risen more than 45% through the end of August versus a sub-1% gain for the Alerian MLP ETF. Fueling Crestwood’s surge has been the notable turnaround in the company’s quarterly results, which have started rebounding after a challenging past few years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The best high-yield stocks share three common characteristics: They generate steady cash flow, have a conservative payout ratio, and possess a solid balance sheet. Three companies that comfortably fit that profile are Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), and Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP). Not only that, but this trio of midstream master limited partnerships (MLPs) takes things a step further by having visible growth coming down the pipeline, which makes them excellent income stocks to buy right now.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    When a dividend yield gets over 10%, it’s usually a sign that the market believes a cut is coming down the pipeline. Given that Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) and Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP) currently yield 11.6% and 14.5%, respectively, the market seems to believe that will be the case for both of those master limited partnerships. That’s why investors should steer clear of those two high-yielding stocks and instead consider Crestwood Equity Partners’ (NYSE:CEQP) much safer 7% payout.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

At Berkshire Hathaway’s (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) 2002 annual meeting, Warren Buffett was asked whether great investors are born or made. Buffett replied that he wasn’t sure how much of being a great investor was innate and how much could be learned, but he did discuss some qualities all great investors should have.

Surprisingly, a high IQ isn’t one of them. As Buffett put it, “You do not need to be terrifically smart to do well as an investor at all.” However, great investors should have certain qualities, and here are three specific traits he mentioned.

Image source: The Motley Fool.

Be realistic

“You have to be realistic. You have to define your circle of competence accurately. You have to know what you don’t know, and not get enticed by it,” Buffett said.

In other words, it’s important to know your strengths and weaknesses if you want to be a great investor. This is why Buffett has historically avoided investing in tech stocks — he knows himself well enough to realize that he doesn’t understand the industry sufficiently to make smart investment decisions. However, he does understand businesses like insurance, banking, and utilities, so you’ll find quite a few of these businesses among Berkshire’s subsidiaries and stock portfolio.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    Leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) won Mexico’s presidential election last night. The new president is expected to inject a string of nationalist policies that counters U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent rhetoric on NAFTA and immigration. However, it’s uncertain to many how AMLO will specifically address the nation’s systemic violence, poverty, and economic distress. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the top business trade organization in the nation, has hit back on President Trump regarding tariffs. On Monday, the GOP-aligned business group launched a state-by-state campaign that will address rising costs of products to consumers due to tariffs and the potential impact on American jobs. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce was an adamant supporter of Trump’s tax policy. The White House has argued that billions of dollars in tariffs are needed to offset trade imbalances with China, the European Union, Mexico, and Canada. Tariffs on China will go into effect this week. Oil prices retreated Monday after both Russia and Saudi Arabia reported an uptick in production. Over the weekend, President Trump said that Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud agreed to pump more oil, “maybe up to 2,000,000 barrels.” However, the White House promptly walked back those statements. Meanwhile, markets continue to monitor stalling economic growth across Asia and the ongoing trade spat between the United States and other nations. The latter could weigh heavily on crude prices.
