Top Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

Bargains along the Las Vegas strip are good news for gamblers and bad news for casino investors.

MGM Resorts (MGM) sparked more pain for the gambling sector when it warned Thursday that bookings and room prices in the third quarter were lower than expected.

The guidance sent shares of MGM, which also reported sharply lower second quarter earnings, down about 3% in early trading. Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Penn National Gaming (PENN) were also trading lower on the news.

CEO Jim Murren downplayed the significance of the lag in bookings, saying the summer months are tough for Vegas hotels and that he expects a pickup at the end of the year.

“You guys get so worked up about a couple of weeks,” Murren said on a call with analysts Thursday. “Do we think there is anything structurally going on in Vegas? The answer is no. If I shared that concern, I would tell you. We’re going to be stronger in the fourth quarter going into next year.”

MGM’s decline followed a wild day for casino stocks on Wednesday. Caesar’s Entertainment (CZR) fell as much as 24% and trading was halted several times after it reported weakness in third quarter as well.
