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.

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Own Right Now: STORE Capital Corporation(STOR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    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.
