MGM Resorts International (MGM) always had two things going for it: It’s large Las Vegas footprint to counter the weakness in Macau, and it’s real-estate, which it spun off into MGM Growth Properties (MGP). But when MGM reported weaker than expected earnings this morning, it wasn’t a good sign that Las Vegas was disappointing. Wells Fargo’sCameron McKnight explains:

Q4 Las Vegas EBITDA of $365mm was 10% ($40MM) below the Street. Las Vegas 4Q RevPAR growth of +3% was in-line with guidance, but below our expectations and industry data. For the 1Q17, MGM provided RevPAR guidance of 7%, a point or two below our expectations. We estimate revenue growth per visitor was +1.5% yr/yr. RevPOR (other revenue per occupied room) growth was +1.5%. We estimate expenses were +1% yr/yr. We expect the stock to be trade down on this morning’s release. While forward guidance was tepid, MGM missed Las Vegas expectations.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street was able to claw back some of its lost ground on Friday, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average bounced back from about 1,250 points’ worth of losses on Wednesday and Thursday. Major benchmarks were up anywhere from 1% to 2%, but some investors weren’t pleased to see that the small-cap Russell 2000 Index wasn’t able to join its larger-cap peers in posting similar gains. Largely forgotten amid the market’s volatility is the fact that third-quarter earnings season is underway, and some stocks suffered from disappointing results. PNC Financial Services Group (NYSE:PNC), Wabash National (NYSE:WNC), and Momenta Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:MNTA) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Blackbaud (NASDAQ:BLKB) delivered a solid finish to 2018 as revenue and earnings came in above expectations, enabling the company to beat its revised full-year forecast. The nonprofit-focused software developer anticipates continued revenue growth in 2019 as more customers shift toward its cloud-based solutions. However, that sales growth won’t boost the bottom line because the company expects to heavily reinvest in its business to drive accelerated growth in the future.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Danny Vena]

    After spending the first half of 2018 in investors’ good graces, Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) has fallen out of favor yet again. As late as May of last year, China’s internet search leader was clocking all-time highs but had lost more than 40% of its value going into its latest earnings report. What caused this perilous fall from grace? Two quarters of decelerating growth, fears regarding China’s slowing economy, and the ongoing trade conflict between Washington, D.C. and Beijing conspired to knock Baidu back down to size.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Keith Noonan]

    Shares of NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) fell 11.4%% in February, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. Despite positive momentum for Chinese tech stocks and the broader market, the online media company’s share price tumbled in the lead-up to its fourth-quarter earnings release.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Its live broadcasting revenue surged as it added more virtual gifts and premium content, the ad business benefited from more brand ads and the introduction of performance-based ads in the prior year quarter, and its e-commerce business — which was recently integrated into Alibaba’s Taobao marketplace — saw a spike in product sales. Bilibili’s recent acquisition of NetEase’s (NASDAQ:NTES) online comics business should further bolster its “other” revenue.

    Industrial stocks have been a casualty of Donald Trump’s trade war, writes Barron’s. In a recent column, the business journal noted that the Industrial Select Sector SPDR ETF, a proxy for industrial stocks as a whole, has laggedthe performance of the broader S&P 500in 2018. And yet, over the past month, both the S&P 500 and the Industrial SPDR have been trending upwards. One analyst thinks the time has come for three industrial stocks in particular — Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT), Manitowoc (NYSE:MTW), and Helios Technologies (NASDAQ:SNHY)– to rake in some gains.

    Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC) leads a strong day of earnings reports on Wall Street. The commercial banking giant was expected to report earnings per share (EPS) of $0.57 on top of $22.4 billion in revenue. The company topped both numbers, including EPS of $0.63. The company said its performance was bolstered by stronger profit margins, the 2017 GOP tax plan, and higher revenue from banking fees. President Donald Trump will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Trump could request that Russia assist with the denuclearization of North Korea during their summit. Trump has said that he expects that he and Putin will have an “extraordinary friendship” at the conclusion of the event. The meeting comes just days after the U.S. government announced 12 indictments against Russian officials on charges of conspiracy to interfere with the 2016 presidential election. Global growth is back in focus after China announced second-quarter GDP expectations. The government announced that Q2 GDP came in at 6.7% as the country has been cracking down on risky credit offerings. Markets are continually worried about China’s Shanghai Composite – which recently entered bear territory. The third quarter will be interesting for markets as trade tensions accelerate between the United States and China.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    Tariffs are overshadowing the start of earnings season. This week, a variety of Wall Street banks, consumer goods, and airline companies report for the previous quarter. While profits are expected to remain strong, the outlook for the rest of the year is expected to take into account the impact of tariffs on global trade. This is likely to weigh on investor sentiment. According to a report from real estate giant REIS Inc., mall vacancies have hit a six-year high at 8.6% last quarter. The fall of brick-and-mortar stores has been fueled by the rise of Amazon.com Inc.(Nasdaq: AMZN), which continues to see its stock surge to new highs. It’s not too late to get in on Amazon at a fraction of the cost of today’s shares. We’ll show you how… right here. Speaking of Amazon, the e-commerce giant recently made a big splash in the pharmacy benefits business after its purchase of online benefits provider PillPack. This purchase has many analysts convinced that Amazon is about to do to pharmacies what it has done to malls over the last decade. And while Amazon is going to be a major player in the drug-delivery business in the future, there is one stock that is going to stave off any further attack from Amazon and the delivery business. Best of all, this stock has an incredible VQScore, and it’s trading at a huge discount.
