Top 5 Casino Stocks To Own Right Now

Thursday was a good day on Wall Street, with the broad-based S&P 500 climbing out of an early hole to gain about half a percent on the day. Concerns about the ongoing escalation of trade disputes evaporated in light of strong performance from the technology sector, which sent the Nasdaq Composite up sharply. Even with the broader gains, some stocks missed out on the market’s optimism. Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (NASDAQ:RRGB), and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (NYSE:TEVA) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Wynn loses in Macau

Shares of Wynn Resorts fell almost 7% after the casino resort giant reported its second-quarter earnings results. Most investors were concerned primarily about Wynn’s poor showing in the key Asian gaming capital of Macau, which included a 15% drop in revenue from the older Wynn Macau resort. The newer Wynn Palace saw huge gains, but some analysts believe that excitement about the newer property could be taking sales away from the older one. Given the generally downbeat performance that other casino companies have posted for the period, Wynn’s results aren’t surprising, but they were a disappointment to those who’d hoped that it would be able to escape the big hits that some of its competitors have suffered recently.

    Monday was a generally down day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks giving up early-morning gains to finish modestly lower. Most market participants focused the bulk of their attention on deteriorating financial conditions in Turkey, with signs that the plunge in the value of the nation’s currency could have impacts across the globe. For instance, Argentina had to boost a key interest rate by 5 percentage points to 45% in order to defend its own currency, and in the U.S., financial stocks were generally under some pressure as investors tried to assess possible exposure if the Turkish crisis extends outward. Even with those difficulties, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN), Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE:DBD), and Antares Pharma (NASDAQ:ATRS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Warren Buffett prefers investing extra cash for future growth rather than dividend payments, but that doesn’t mean the Oracle of Omaha’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) won’t buy stocks that do both, especially if the price is right. For example, Berkshire swooped in and bought a nearly 10% stake in real estate investment trust (REIT) Store Capital (NYSE:STOR) last year after its share price took a tumble. Does this REIT deserve a spot in your portfolio, too? Here’s why Store Capital’s business model makes it one of the best income-producing stocks Berkshire Hathaway owns.

Doing both at the same time is difficult, which is why it partnered up with Con Ed in the Marcellus region, Shell Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:SHLX) and First Reserve in the Delaware Basin, and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) in the Powder River basin. These agreements allow Crestwood to keep expanding its business without having to foot the entire bill for the investments.

Is The Economy Overheating? – Cramer’s Mad Money (5/17/18)

Stocks discussed on the in-depth session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV Program, Thursday, May 17.

The economy is running too fast and is getting hotter. Cramer thinks someone will get hurt if the Fed keeps raising interest rates. After weaker than expected nonfarm payrolls, the street expected Fed to not raise rates aggressively. However, after the jobless claims data, the Fed could raise rates faster than expected. “That’s the lowest jobless claims figure since December 1969, when we had a 120M fewer people in this country,” said Cramer.

The Fed put the benchmark funds rate at a target of 1.5-1.75%. The chances of June rate hike is 95%. The Fed will keep raising rates to fend off inflation but higher rates make it expensive to borrow money which will slow down the economy.

Based on conference calls, Cramer sees inflation in retail, oil, lumber and his personal barometer, corrugated cardboard used in Amazon boxes. Besides that, there is digital deflation caused by the likes of Amazon, cloud companies who are doing more with less.

“In other words, when the economy gets too hot, we have these mechanisms in place that will cause it to cool back down, and that’s where you might get hurt,” concluded Cramer.

CEO interview – Canopy Growth Corp (OTCPK:TWMJF)

Cramer had said that as marijuana gets legal, the profits will go down. Pot is expensive only because it is illegal in many states. Cramer interviewed CEO Bruce Linton of Canada based Canopy Growth Corp. which has applied to be the first cannabis company to be listed on NYSE.

Linton said that legalizing marijuana at the Federal level in the US will result in fewer prescriptions of addictive substances such as opioids. The company has both medical division and recreation division. Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ) has taken 9.9% stake in the company and partnership with them could result in a new low-calorie beverage. Marijuana has disrupted sales of other products such as alcohol and sleep aids around the globe.

“Cannabis is a huge disruptor to the opioid guys. Opioids, including heroin and fentanyl, were involved in more than 42,000 overdose deaths in 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The opioid epidemic affects American children as well. The number of pediatric opioid hospitalizations requiring intensive care nearly doubled to 1,504 patients between 2012 and 2015, from 797 patients between 2004 and 2007, according to a study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Pediatrics,” said Linton.

They are Canada’s biggest weed company and their products are sold in 7 countries. There is still a lot of work to be done pairing cannabis products with oncology treatments for pain relief and loss of appetite. There is a big opportunity in the animal health market as well.

The company is regulated with the German standards and has real profits and revenue.

Expectations are killing stocks

Stock movement are all about expectation. That was the case with Masco (NYSE:MAS), Owens Corning (NYSE:OC) and Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK). All these stocks had a good run in 2017 but have fallen in 2018 due to housing related weakness.

Masco and Stanley Black & Decker have fallen 19% while Owens Corning has fallen 30% in 2018. Cramer called it a case of high expectations. When the companies posted good results, it wasn’t enough to impress the street as they did not blow past the expectations.

The worry of rising interest rates and commodity costs hit the stocks further. In the current quarter, Black & Decker just met expectations, Masco missed earnings and Owens Corning posted bad results that led the entire group to go down.

These stocks are cheap – Stanley Black & Decker trading at PE of 15, Masco at 13 and Owens Corning at 10 but looking at the challenges of the current environment, they are not cheap. Cramer thinks Stanley Black & Decker is the only one worth buying as it’s least levered to housing.

Consumer packaged goods and housing stocks

Cramer reviewed two important groups in the stock market – consumer packaged stocks and homebuilders. Most of the CPG companies are down by 30% while homebuilder stocks are down by 20%.

As the interest rates keep rising, the money managers are ditching the homebuilder stocks despite good earnings. The same case is with CPG stocks where the inflation and commodity costs are rising. Although there is yield protection in CPG stocks, it’s not big enough to offset the rise in costs.

Cramer thinks these companies cannot survive just based on good earnings as the market has turned their back on them. There are easier ways to make money so he advised staying away from these groups.

Estee Lauder (NYSE:EL) is a CPG company that is going against the trend but this is seen less of a CPG company and more of an aspirational brand company.

Viewer calls taken by Cramer

Barclays (NYSE:BCS): Why go down the food chain when good banks like JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) are there.

Honeywell International (NYSE:HON): It’s a good company that is also called a play on e-commerce. Buy it.

Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII): It is growing. Hold the stock.

Herbalife (NYSE:HLF): It’s up more than 50% for the year. Let it come down below $50 to buy.

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.

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.

    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.
