Top Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower…” Steve Jobs

This month marks a year-plus since the resignation of Wynn Resorts Ltd. (NASDAQ:WYNN) founder, CEO Steve Wynn. More than any other single executive/entrepreneur in the casino industry, Wynn was widely regarded as sui generis, even by his most ferocious competitors. Was he essentially the indispensable man of his company? Or is one former colleague of mine, clearly a skeptic, correct in quoting Gen. Charles deGaulle – who famously said, “the graveyards are full of indispensable men…”

So when accusations of serial sexual misconduct with employees surfaced in a Wall Street Journal article last March, the stock took a 10% hit to $165. It was only one headwind, among those macro trends that began buffeting the casino sector. China trade and economic woes continued to produce 30% to 50% declines across the gaming universe. But allegations against Steve Wynn went far beyond in raising serious concerns as to how the company would fare without its charismatic founding genius. Easy, and not unwarranted, comparisons were made between the loss of Wynn’s services to his company and that of Steve Jobs to Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) after Jobs died in 2011.
