Hot Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

The lights are dimming in Las Vegas and Macau. As a result, casino operators across the world — from the more U.S.-focused operators like Caesars (NASDAQ:CZR) and MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM) to those with a greater international presence like Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS), Melco (NASDAQ:MLCO), and Wynn (NASDAQ:WYNN) — are searching for a winning formula in other markets.

And despite the allure of new opportunities like sports betting and the development of Japan’s integrated resorts, there’s a good chance gaming company performance will decline going forward.

Caesars’ revised outlook for its Las Vegas resorts caused its stock to lose a quarter of its value when the company forecast slowing demand in July and August. MGM also missed analysts’ expectations for the quarter and said it was cutting its hotel room rates to attract more guests. MGM owns close to half the casinos on the Las Vegas Strip.

Going into PayPal’s (NASDAQ:PYPL) first-quarter financial report, investors were still digesting the announcement made in February by eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY). The company revealed that it had decided to process its own payments as soon as allowable under its separation agreement with PayPal. The news sent PayPal’s shares falling by as much as 10%, while eBay climbed 15%. As I pointed out at the time, many investors didn’t understand the context of this announcement, and that it wasn’t unexpected — or even that big of a deal.

PayPal’s earnings release once again showed its massive growth potential, as if to reassure investors that the future would be just fine, and the company would continue to thrive, even in a future with a much smaller contribution from eBay.

    Wednesday was an up-and-down day on Wall Street. Major benchmarks started the day sharply lower as concerns about rising interest rates continued to swirl among those following the financial markets. Investors then seemed to get more comfortable with the current state of affairs, leading to a rebound, but further volatility left the Dow with only modest gains by the end of the session. Some bad news from key companies also weighed on overall sentiment. Snap (NYSE:SNAP), Teradyne (NYSE:TER), and Owens Corning (NYSE:OC) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks For 2018: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Most investors have probably heard of energy giants Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A) (NYSE:RDS-B), Dominion Energy (NYSE:D), and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). Fewer, however, are likely familiar with their publicly traded master limited partnerships (MLPs): Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE:DM), and TC Pipelines (NYSE:TCP). That might be a good thing, as the market has beaten up the latter trio this year, sending their valuations south.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    In addition to the Trans Mountain system, two other pipeline projects currently are proposed to move crude oil from Alberta either to the Great Lakes or the Gulf Coast. Enbridge Inc. (NYSE: ENB) is proposing to replace its 50-year old Line 3 system to transport 760,000 barrels a day to Superior, Wisconsin. TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) has received approval from the Trump administration and would transport 830,000 barrels a day to Nebraska where existing pipelines will take over, sending the crude to U.S. refineries and Gulf Coast terminals.

    TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) just achieved a perfect Money Morning stock VQScore, making it a profit powder keg waiting to ignite…

    TransCanada is a Canadian oil and gas pipeline company, most famous for its development of the Keystone XL pipeline connecting Canadian oil fields to major hubs in the United States.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Enbridge just bought its stake in the German offshore wind farm projectslast year, initially agreeing to invest about $1.25 billion for a 50% stake. However, with concerns growing about its balance sheet and ability to finance growth projects, the company has chosen to monetize part of this asset. It’s also monetizing its onshore renewable facilities in Canada and two in the U.S. to bring in some much-needed cash. This decision to cash in on a portion of its renewable portfolio follows a similar plan by fellow Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which sold its solar assets in Ontario last year. The driving factor in that decision was TransCanada’s desire to improve its financial flexibility so that it could “continue to build on our vision of being North America’s leading energy infrastructure company,” said CEO Russ Girling. What’s clear from these deals is that neither TransCanada nor Enbridge sees renewables playing a key role in building the companies they envision themselves being.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2018

Royal Mail Plc, which traces its origins back five hundred years has been a member of the FTSE 100, the UKs index of blue chip companies, since shortly after being privatized in 2013, only narrowly escaped relegation in the most recent quarterly review this June. But could it now be relegated? Some pundits have ventured as much.

Todays British postal that was founded in 1516 when Henry VIII created a Master of the Posts was the darling of the stock market following its full privatization in 2013 and debut on the London Stock Exchange.

But after shares reached the giddy heights of £6.15 in January 2014 concerns have grown about its speed of restructuring, falling letter volumes and on-going negotiations with unions around closing its expensive Defined Benefit (DB) pension scheme.

These worries have contributed to the shares falling to £3.97 a pop of late, which equates to a decline of 20% year to date. And, since hitting the highs back then the share price drop equates to c.35%.

    3. Axcelis Technologies (Nasdaq: ACLS)
    It is the technical price pattern that first caught my eye with this $800 million market cap small cap. Shares dropped to a $22.00 low in mid-February but have since been slowly and steadily moving higher toward resistance at both the 50- and 200-day SMAs. In and of itself, this is not enough impetus to get long. However, when combined with the fundamental picture, a compelling long thesis emerges.
