Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch Right Now: Keweenaw Land Association, Limited (KEWL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Keweenaw Land Association (OTCPK:KEWL)

    I am personally a big fan of forests as an investment and KEWL could be the way to actually get an exposure to that. The company owns a significant amount of timberland around Michigan Great Lakes Area and some of it is also in active production. The thesis could be here that the market underappreciates the land owned by the company. KEWL recently released an investor presentation, which showcased a NAV discount of 11%. It also mentioned that the company wants to expand and will likely take on debt, which might pose some risks, but it also provides a catalyst.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    As Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) dramatically adds to its number of stores both in the United States and globally, the chain has committed to using its hiring power to affect the communities it operates in. The company, which plans to add 12,000 stores by 2021, has increased the number of veterans and military spouses it has pledged to hire to 25,000 by 2025, having already reached its goal of hiring 10,000 by 2018.

    Some of what Chipotle is doing comes from Starbucks’ (NASDAQ:SBUX) playbook. The coffee company was a trailblazer in creating a digital and mobile strategy that has truly transformed the customer experience and added to Starbucks’ bottom line. Its app, which features a mobile wallet-style system of stored preferences and the ability to order ahead to pick up your drink without waiting in line, now has more than 13 million active users, and the company has pointed to its digital growth many times as a boost to its comparable-store sales and margin growth. Mobile payments now make up one-quarter of all Starbucks transactions.

    Other crypto projects like Ripple serve to transfer fiat currencies around the world. Crushing legacy systems like SWIFT regarding time and cost, Ripple is the leading player in the conversion of money transfer systems into the digital age. Rumors abound that even Starbucks (NYSE: SBUX) has plans to accept Ripple and Litecoin as payment within the next five years. Should Starbucks come on board, expect a massive move by retailers in this direction.

    Wednesday was yet another record-setting day for the stock market, as the Dow climbed triple digits and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite followed the venerable average to unprecedented heights. Economic data showing rising inflation made it more likely that the Federal Reserve will look to boost interest rates at its next Federal Open Market Committee meeting next month, and the ripples throughout the bond market sent many investors to consider stocks instead. Yet despite the substantial rally, some stocks missed out on the move higher, and American International Group (NYSE:AIG), Teck Resources (NYSE:TECK), and Movado Group (NYSE:MOV) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE:CCL) (NYSE:CUK)shareholders have to be feeling pretty good these days. The stock hit yet another new high on Friday, and the stock is trading 13% higher so far in 2017.It’s been smooth sailing so far this year, but the first big test comes on Tuesday morning when the world’s largest cruise line operator reports financial results for its fiscal first quarter.

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    How about individual stories? Tuesday I was pleasantly surprised by the commentary on both the Darden (DRI) and Carnival (CCL) calls. Weekend dining and lunch were very strong for Darden, parent of Olive Garden, even though CEO Gene Lee acknowledged that it’s competing against “new necessities today, whether smartphones, whether it’s your cable bill, your Netflix bill. I mean, they have increased significantly over the years.” Hmm, is there any wonder why takeout pizza is so strong? Makes me want to buy both Darden and Domino’s (DPZ) .

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tracey Ryniec]

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    What a year 2016 was for Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) shareholders. The stock plunged over 50% last year, as its multiyear run of accelerating 20%-30% growth rates ground to a halt. The story changed from that of a high-growth technology company riding the secular trend of exploding data and bandwidth needs to one of stagnating revenues, profits turning to losses, increased competition, and end customers pausing investments in optical networks.
