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.

    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.

  • [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.

    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.
