Top 5 Casino Stocks To Invest In 2019

Stars Group Inc.’s $4.7-billion purchase of Sky Betting & Gaming turns the online poker giant into a major sports-betting player that could use its strong foothold in Europe to cross the Atlantic if the U.S. market fully opens.

The Toronto-based operator of PokerStars, which announced the cash-and-stock deal with CVC Capital Partners and Sky Plc on Saturday, is set to win a significant foothold in the U.K. — the largest regulated gaming market. Sky Betting & Gaming, or SBG, is growing rapidly in online casino games and sports at home and recently expanded to Italy and Germany.

If an upcoming Supreme Court decision in the U.S. allows sports betting in more states, it would be the “icing on the cake” for the combined companies, according to Simon Holliday, founder of the research firm H2 Gambling Capital.

“The US sportsbetting Supreme Court case is obviously a big part of the potential upside, with Star’s old database, SBG’s strengths and their track record solely in the U.K.,” Holliday wrote in an email. “Even without the U.S., SBG is just starting to launch in other regulated markets.”

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

According to Zacks, “ANSYS delivered strong results for first-quarter 2018, wherein both the top and bottom lines fared better than the respective Zacks Consensus Estimates. Increasing demand for simulation particularly from industries like energy bodes well for ANSYS. We believe that robust product portfolio, expanding total addressable market improving enterprise penetration, collaborations with leading vendors, and strong balance sheet are the catalysts. Acquisitions like 3DSIM and OPTIS are not only enabling ANSYS to bring innovative solutions to the market but are also aiding it to enhance foothold in the competitive simulations market. However, its margin is expected to remain under pressure as ANSYS continues to invest on product development. Furthermore, adverse foreign currency exchange rates are expected to impede revenue growth in the near term as it generates significant revenues from international market.”

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019

U.S. home prices are on a roll. And as we head into the New Year, I am expecting another record year for home prices in 2018. Today, I am going to reveal the safest, easiest and most profitable way to benefit from this trend.

Fueled by record-low interest rates and housing inventories, home prices in the United States hit another all-time high in 2017.

The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-City Composite Home Price NSA (SPCS20) Index measures the value of residential real estate in 20 major U.S. metropolitan areas, including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle and Chicago. The most recent update showed that the index expanded 6.1% to 203 in August, breaking the previous all-time high of 198 from July of 2007. Take a look below.

SPCS20 Index Level Since July 2007

Looking forward, I am expecting another record year. Not only will interest rates remain relatively low, but I see no short-term solution to historically low housing inventories.

Who will be the first American brand-named company to issue their own cryptocurrency?

Top 10 Financial Stocks To Invest In 2019

One of the hottest sectors in the stock market the past few years has been the payments industry, as credit card networks, payment platforms, and payment processing companies have outpaced the market. This group is exemplified by companies such as Visa Inc (NYSE:V) and PayPal Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:PYPL), whose shares have gained 42% and 64%, respectively, over the past 12 months. But while both have outperformed the S&P 500 index, which makes for a better investment now?

The case for Visa

Many consumers are at least fleetingly familiar with Visa, as the company has about 3.25 billion cards in circulation that were used to make 43.2 billion transactions in the company’s 2018 second quarter.

What some might be surprised to learn, however, is that Visa does not directly lend money to consumers; rather, it makes money by acting as the payment network — think of it as a highway your money travels on — between merchants, consumers, and their banks. A huge advantage to this business model is that, unlike credit card peers American Express Company and Discover Financial Services, Visa is not directly exposed to credit risk. So, when consumers default on credit card loans, Visa is not liable for any of the risk! Of course, the downside is that Visa also does not get to partake in collecting any of the interest on those loans.
