    In other words, companies like Caesar’s Entertainment (NYSE: CZR) sit at the intersection of some powerful macro trends.

    Interested investors may want to look into the stock. But unfortunately for income investors, operating these massive resorts requires equally massive daily expenses and capital expenditures, which is one reason why CZR doesn’t pay a dividend.

Hot Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

Investing in the healthcare sector can sometimes feel like riding a roller coaster, but there’s little denying that the sector tends to outperform over time. Over the last 11 years, the healthcare sector has outperformed the broad-based S&P 500 in eight of those years. Furthermore, it was among the three top-performing sectors in five out of those 11 years.  

Of course, being a healthcare investor means two things: (1) You’ll need to be patient, because drug and device development takes time, and (2) you have to be picky and really do your homework, because there are a lot of companies that won’t succeed. 

With this in mind, we asked three of our Motley Fool investors to name one healthcare stock they believe could be worth buying right now. Cancer drug developer Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL), generic-drug manufacturer Lannett (NYSE:LCI), and medical device megacap Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) all made the cut.

    The mood was negative on Wall Street on Wednesday, and most major benchmarks finished in the red. Strength in the technology sector wasn’t enough to lift more cyclically focused benchmarks like the Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the combination of an attack on Saudi Arabia that sent oil prices higher and some disquieting readings on the inflation front kept investors from feeling more confident about stocks going into earnings season. In addition, some individual companies had bad news that sent their shares lower. Analogic (NASDAQ:ALOG), QuinStreet (NASDAQ:QNST), and MSC Industrial Direct (NYSE:MSM) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018

Mattel (MAT) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after missing earnings forecasts by a wide margin.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

Matteldropped 18% to $25.99 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.1% to 2,296.68.

Barclays analyst Felicia Hendrix doesn’t believe the plunge made Mattel’s shares any more attractive. She explains why:

While the company’s valuation could appear more attractive following this release, we remain Equal Weight particularly given that management’s LT growth objectives are now pushed out to 2019 from 2018, and in 2018 the company faces tough comps against a strong entertainment driven 2017. Until investors feel more comfortable with Mattel’s growth trajectory, we believe valuation upside is limited. Further, with this most recent setback, we believe investors are going to focus on the sustainability of the dividend yet again which could also be an overhang. The new CEO (as of 2/8) could shake things up and inject growth (particularly in ecommerce), which would certainly be a positive. We are looking forward to hearing Ms. Georgiadis’ plans as she gets settled in

Top Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018: Caesars Entertainment Corporation(CZR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) and Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR) are two of the most well known gaming companies in the world. But they’re very different companies with very different futures ahead.

  • [By Michael E. Lewitt]

    Back in April, I recommendedCaesars Entertainment Corp.(Nasdaq: CZR) as a buy – but warned you that this was a play that might take some time to mature.

  • [By AlphaStreetResearch]

    Caesars Entertainment Corporation (CZR) is a highly overvalued gaming, hotel, and entertainment company with deteriorating fundamentals on all levels in a highly competitive environment. The company’s stock has seen a massive run to the upside on the coattails of other casino and entertainment companies in the space. A considerable catalyst for the push higher in these stocks is the good news coming out of Macau, but this is an area where Caesars has absolutely no exposure and will be locked out of for the foreseeable future after failing to take appropriate licensing measures. Below is our introduction into the business model, its weaknesses, and the new selling or shorting opportunity that exists for CZR after the recent appreciation in share price. Investors will soon realize that there is little upside value in this company and that there are much better opportunities in this space. The company is now amidst a major struggle from a debt standpoint with major deadlines approaching over the next year and a half. The company is in no position to thrive going forward unless major steps are taken to overhaul the company’s capital structure. Caesars Entertainment has a market cap of $3.19 Billion after the stock has moved up over 225% year to date and reports its next quarter on October 31, 2013. With this in mind, we value CZR at $21.00 by year-end of 2013 and $14.00 by August 1, 2014, a decrease of 40% from current levels. We will later highlight:
