Top Casino Stocks To Own For 2019

Perhaps it is because trading stocks can often mirror the thrill of winning big at the blackjack tables, or maybe it is because Las Vegas conjures images of the world’s most flashy brands and businessmen. Regardless of the reason, it is clear that gambling stocks are always among the most popular on Wall Street.

Luckily for investors, now is also an interesting time to be buying gambling stocks, as continued Vegas strength, legalized sports gambling coming to the U.S., and an overall international interest in gaming has created some interesting buying opportunity.

Of course, no industries are without risk, and recently, some casino giants have been selling off as gambling data has hinted at a potential slowdown in Macau after an extended recovery in the world’s top gaming hotspot.

Still, we can use Zacks’ proven stock-picking methods to find solid stocks in any industry. Check out these casino stocks today:

Top Casino Stocks To Own For 2019: Sohu.com Inc.(SOHU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    It’s now been seven months since Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) completed its objective of spinning off Sogou. Sogou had been the fastest growing component at Sohu for years. It should have taken off after trading on its own merits, but that failed to happen. Though the shares inched slightly higher in their first few days of trading, Sogou has spent most of its time since late November as a broken IPO until it finally cracked the $13 ceiling today in intraday trading.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL), Camping World Holdings (NYSE:CWH), and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) have taken a beating this year. They’re among the biggest losers through the first three quarters of 2018. Let’s go over why I think they have a shot at bouncing back in the next three months.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Sogou’s shares are prone to big swings for a couple of simple reasons.

    As a Chinese business, many American investors don’t feel connected to Sogou’s business and might not have access to some important sources of information about this company and its stock. Though Sogou has been around for nearly a decade now, it only entered the public markets in November of 2017. It’s a new ticker, untested on the market, and not always easily understood through year-over-year or longer-term analyses. At the IPO, Chinese internet giants Tencent (NASDAQOTH:TCEHY) and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) combined for a total ownership of 82% of Sogu’s business. Those stakes later declined to 71%, but Sohu and Tencent remain Sogou’s largest shareholders, with 96% of the voting power in shareholder elections and votes. Regular investors hold a very small stake in Sogou, which tends to boost the stock’s volatility.

    Moreover, Chinese regulators launched an investigation of Sogou in June, forcing the company to shut down parts of its online advertising operations for 10 days in early July. The company is accused of showing video ads that insulted a national hero. That blackout will reduce Sogou’s third-quarter revenues by a significant but unannounced amount.

Top Casino Stocks To Own For 2019: Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc.(VNDA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Shares of lithium producer Livent (NYSE:LTHM) and newly profitable Vanda Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:VNDA) have underperformed the broader stock market in recent months. The former has been handicapped by the fact that its parent company, FMC, owned 84% of outstanding shares long after it went public. That significantly limited its financial flexibility and ability to court large institutional investors. The latter announced it’s suing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration because, you know, that always works.

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    After it was announced yesterday that the stock would be added to the S&P 600 index, shares in Vanda Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:VNDA) jumped on Wednesday and were up 10% at 2 p.m. EDT. 

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Media stories about Vanda Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:VNDA) have trended somewhat positive on Thursday, Accern Sentiment Analysis reports. The research group identifies positive and negative media coverage by monitoring more than twenty million blog and news sources. Accern ranks coverage of publicly-traded companies on a scale of -1 to 1, with scores nearest to one being the most favorable. Vanda Pharmaceuticals earned a media sentiment score of 0.09 on Accern’s scale. Accern also gave media coverage about the biopharmaceutical company an impact score of 46.3857713397213 out of 100, meaning that recent media coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an impact on the company’s share price in the next several days.

Top 10 Gold Stocks To Own Right Now

Peter Krauth

A funny thing happened with the price of silver early last week. After both silver and gold dropped in the face of surging 10-year Treasury yields and the U.S. dollar, silver parted ways with gold.

Gold prices corrected, then essentially moved sideways.

Silver prices, on the other hand, rose mid-week even as the dollar was gaining and gold wasn’t.

It was impressive to see and testament to the fact that silver is extremely cheap and extremely undervalued at the moment. Now the market is slowly coming around to that same conclusion.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Tuesday saw an up-and-down session on Wall Street, with major benchmarks trading on either side of the unchanged mark before finishing the day flat. Many investors kept most of their attention on Washington, where the White House announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the deal that the previous administration made with Iran concerning nuclear development. The withdrawal was largely expected, and although crude oil and other commodities were volatile leading up to the final decision, most other financial markets seemed prepared for the announcement. Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially. Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), and SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate. While this may seem like a boring deal, Blackstone is buying a business that churns out cold hard cash for its investors. We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline. We’re going to be discussing one of the best real estate opportunities available very soon – so keep an eye out for updates.

Hot Financial Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Dow 20,000 gets a lot of people excited. But as we discussed on Friday, there are rational reasons to expect that stocks will continue to climb to much higher levels.

Yesterday we looked back on China’s currency manipulation that has escalated to a big geopolitical risk with the incoming Trump administration. Remember, at the beginning of the year I talked about the six big global market themes for 2016. China’s currency was one.

Given that we’re reaching the 20,000 level in the Dow, let’s revisit the first theme I talked about back in January. “Theme #1: The central banks are in control—Be Long Stocks…

We know that the global financial and economic crisis was driven by a credit bubble and, therefore, overindebtedness. We know more than 60 countries around the world were simultaneously in recession.

If you grasp this reality, and are firmly rooted in the context within which the global economy is operating, respecting the role that central banks played in rescuing the world from an apocalyptic collapse, then there hasn’t been much more to talk about or to debate for quite some time, when it comes to the outlook for markets, risks, scenarios, etc. Central Banks have proven to be able to influence confidence and asset prices. Both of which are critical tools in creating recovery and continuing recovery.”

Hot Financial Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Cheniere Energy Partners, LP(CQP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Even though the spot price has come down a bit since then, it still gave management enough confidence to increase its guidance for the full fiscal year. Management raised its estimate for full-year adjusted EBITDA to $2.2 billion-$2.5 billion and distributable cash flow from Cheniere Energy Partners(NYSEMKT:CQP) to $0.35 billion-$0.55 billion.

    While numerous LNG export terminals dotting the Gulf Coast are in various stages of development, the first major facility and current largest producer is the Sabine Pass facility owned by Cheniere Energy Partners LP (NYSEMKT:CQP). The partnership is largely controlled and majority-owned by Cheniere Energy. That means the current 6.9% distribution yield is essentially funding the construction of the parent’s next export facility in Corpus Christi, although any investor seeking income can get in on the action.

    Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSE: LNG) is leading the United States toward a future that includes material liquified natural gas exports.

    2. Price To Sales
    Another useful metric is the price-to-sales ratio (P/S). P/S measures a company’s market cap versus its annual revenue number. The idea is that the lower the number, the greater the implied value. For example, Snap, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNAP) trades at 26.9 times sales, an incredibly expensive number. However, aftermarket auto parts giant Genuine Parts (NYSE: GPC) trades at just 0.88 times sales — 88 cents to every dollar of sales the company brings in. Often, the lower the number, the more inefficiently the market has mispriced the stock.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own Right Now: T. Rowe Price Group, Inc.(TROW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Arie Goren]

    On November 5, Oracle (NYSE:ORCL)confirmed that it has finally completed the acquisition of Netsuite (NYSE:N) for $9.3 billion in cash, or $109 per share that the company had initially offered. In my previous article about Oracle, I had suggested that the acquisition of NetSuite, the cloud business application software company, is a smart move by Oracle. What’s more, it is not paying an excessive price for the deal. In fact, Oracle insisted that it will not pay more than what it had first offered despite the resistance from T Rowe Price (NSDQ:TROW)which demanded $133 per share.

    Some of the most well-known dividend aristocrats include:

    Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) pays a dividend of $0.77, which is a yield of 3.75%. Aflac Inc. (NYSE: AFL) pays a dividend of $0.43, which is a yield of 2.32%. AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) pays a dividend of $0.49, which is a yield of 5.12%. T-Rowe Price Group Inc. (Nasdaq: TROW) pays a dividend of $0.57, which is a yield of 3.27%. Clorox Co. (NYSE: CLX) pays a dividend of $0.84, which is a yield of 2.50%.

    If you just kept the dividends, your investment would be worth $11,147. That’s a difference of only $25. So it may not seem like a big deal at first glance.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    We maintain our positive view toward Cintas, particularly as G&K Services (GK) is likely to bolster Cintas’s growth potential over the next few years. However, after strong appreciation since the G&K announcement last August, we believe that much of the good news is already priced in at 25x/22x our pro-forma FY18/FY19 adjusted EPS estimates. As a result, we rate CTAS Sector Perform and await a better entry point.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Mitchell Clark]

     The Toro Company (NYSE:TTC) is one of my favorite small-caps for medium- to long-term investors. Selling specialized equipment for turf management and other industries, Toro is a proven winner that has provided very consistent growth in sales and earnings over the years.

    It’s not the fastest growing small-cap business, but it pays a decent dividend and has a loyal customer base in the golf course and contractor markets.

    Toro is now offering sprinkler refit equipment for water-starved jurisdictions like California. This company’s share price performance has been exemplary.
