Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch Right Now

Monday was a mixed day on Wall Street, as gains for major benchmarks contrasted with a decline in indexes tracking smaller companies. Many market participants focused on the White House’s support of Chinese mobile device maker ZTE, which lifted several of the biggest stocks of Chinese technology giants that trade on U.S. exchanges. In general, investors seem to be pleased with the health of the global economy, and absent reasons to the contrary, the path of least resistance appears to be a bounce from the recent correction. Some individual companies received especially good news that lifted shares today. Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR), NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI), and Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Caesars gets some help from the Supreme Court

Shares of Caesars Entertainment rose 5% in the wake of good news for the casino industry from the U.S. Supreme Court. The nation’s highest court ruled that a more than 25-year-old federal law that had prevented nearly every state other than Nevada from allowing sports-related betting was unconstitutional, opening the door for Caesars and its peers to begin such operations if state legislatures pass laws allowing sports betting. New Jersey, which was the state seeking to have the law declared unconstitutional, appears ready to move quickly, and Caesars praised the decision. The company said it will need to take time to understand the consequences of the legal win before offering specific strategy, but investors think it’ll be a big win for Caesars to be able to have sports betting throughout its network rather than only in its Nevada locations.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch Right Now: Energy Transfer Equity, L.P.(ETE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Midstream giant Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE) has been excruciatingly volatile over the past few years. At one point, units of the master limited partnership (MLP) lost more than 80% of their value, and they are currently about 50% below their peak. While the volatility has moderated somewhat this year — with units flat overall — they’ve still been all over the map, up almost 10% at one point before plunging double-digits and then recovering.

    Management teams tend to be very coy about what they’re working on behind closed doors. Energy Transfer Equity’s (NYSE:ETE) leadership, on the other hand, was very transparent about what’s going on behind the scenes during the company’s first-quarter conference call. They openly answered analysts’ questions, which provided investors with an interesting glimpse into what’s ahead.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    On the company’sfirst-quarter conference call, the management team of Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE) and Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) let investors know they’re working on a transaction to simplify their corporate structure. CEO Kelcy Warren stated that the deal would “most certainly be a structure whereby ETE acquires ETP.” That’s because they’ve “looked at every scenario possible to us,” according to Warren and “don’t see any mathematical scenario that makes any sense other than that one.”

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One reason investors are worried that Energy Transfer might need to reduce its distribution is that the company barely generates enough cash flow to support it without the help of its parent Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE). In 2017, Energy Transfer Partners produced $4.19 billion in distributable cash flow and would have paid out $4.15 billion to investors if it wasn’t for the fact that Energy Transfer Equity relinquished its rights to $656 million of that cash. While that support boosted the distribution coverage ratio from a tight 1.0 times to a more comfortable 1.2 times, it was only a temporary fix since Energy Transfer Equity’s support will diminish significantly in 2018 before declining further in 2019 and 2020.
