Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2018

More than two years after a government crackdown on corruption sent Macau gaming stocks tumbling, The Chinese government has unveiled yet another new regulation on the Macau gaming industry that has hit gaming stocks hard. The latest new law cut the daily ATM withdrawal limit in Macau from 10,000 patacas to 5,000 patacas, or roughly $626.

Unfortunately, transparency and predictability has never been one of the Chinese government’s strong points. Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ: WYNN) CEO Steve Wynn said the government’s behavior was “preposterous” when it kept operators in the dark about how many table games they would be allotted just weeks prior to opening billion-dollar new resorts. For the record, none of the major operators that have opened resorts in the past two years have received the table allotment they requested.

Although the U.S. gaming market likely doesn’t have the kind of long-term growth potential that Macau does, U.S. casinos are doing just fine these days. In the current fiscal year, Las Vegas Strip revenue is trending about 6% ahead of last year, and other regions of the country are doing even better. For better or worse, U.S. stock investors likely won’t have to worry about new regulations in the next four years under President-elect Trump.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2018: NXP Semiconductors N.V.(NXPI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    A recent Reuter’s report suggests that the San Diego, California basedchipmaker is all set to win a conditional Japanese antitrust go-ahead for its multi-billion dollar NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI) deal. Earlier, Bloomberg reported that Qualcomm may win European Union approval for its NXPacquisition by the year-end with slight modifications to the concessions. The smartphone chip giant reportedly seems to have struck a deal with the European regulatory body by agreeing to drop certainstandard essential and system-level patents belonging to NXP in the proposed takeover. EU anti-trust body has now set the new deadline fordeciding on Qualcommsacquisition of NXP asMarch 5, 2018. If Bloomberg reports turn out to be true, this could be shot in the arm for Qualcomm which at the moment is trying to fend off the takeoverfrom Broadcom. If EU approval goes through then other remainingregulatory bodies will soon fall in line.

    NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI) is closing out 2016 with a 16% return for the full year. Here’s what to expect out of the Netherlands-based embedded chip maker in 2017.

  • [By Sreekanth Anasa]

    This has the potential to offset the sluggishness in demand of smartphone chips around the world. Also, certain performance benchmarks of Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor 835 are making positive waves. A lot is riding on Qualcomm’s $47B acquisition of NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI), which it plans to complete by the end of the year. This acquisition would open up the high potential IoT segment as well for the smartphone chipmaker. All of these positives have been overshadowed by Qualcomm Inc’s legal troubles, which could hit its licensing business hard. Qualcomm depends heavily on its licensing business to generate bulk of its pre-tax profits. In the most recent fiscal year, Qualcomm’s QTL segment accounted for 78% of its pre-tax profits. The verdicts in the legal issues faced by Qualcomm will not be out anytime soon. These tend to be long drawn courtroom battles, and have cast a spell of uncertainty over Qualcomm’s licensing business.

    The San Diego-based component maker is taking the lead to capture the booming IoT opportunity. A latest BusinessInsider researchsuggests that there will be an investment of “$6 trillion in IoT between 2015 and 2020, which will yield $12.6 trillion ROI over the next decade.” The BI research also “expects that more than 24 billion IoT devices will be installed globally in 2020, and the vast majority of these will fall into the small, low-power category.” Qualcomm has stepped up its efforts to capture the massive opportunity in front of it by its latest moves. The world’s largest smartphone chipmaker has announced its IoT chips “with support for Android Things OS, integration with Amazon Web Services, and two systems-on-chips that aggregate a bevy of standards.” A number of Qualcomm’s offerings are being showcased atMobile World Congress in Barcelona later this week. It is also known that Qualcomm is “first to add support for Google’s Android Things OS on its 4G LTE processors”. As a ZDNet post puts it Qualcomm wants to “Be the Swiss Army processor for IoT deployments.” All these advancements are from Qualcomm alone, and once the NXP Semiconductor (NASDAQ:NXPI) acquisition is over, the chipmaker’s IoTportfoliowill become very diverse and large, to tap the Multi-billion dollar opportunity.

Hot Undervalued Stocks For 2018

Talk about a Barron’s bounce!Range Resources (RRC) has soared to the top of the S&P 500 today after Barron’s touted it in the pages of the magazine this weekend.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

Range Resources gained 4.1% to $28.47, while the S&P 500 slipped 0.3% to2,375.31.

Barron’s Andrew Bary called Range Resources “an unappreciated energy play.” He explains why:

With major market indexes at record highs, natural-gas stocks are among the few depressed industry groups. Blame a warm winter and weakening gas prices.

Range Resources (ticker: RRC), a leading U.S. gas producer, looks undervalued. Its shares, at $27, are down 20% this year and are much below their 52-week high of $47, set last June. Range drilled the first well in the now-prolific Marcellus region of Pennsylvania more than a decade ago and amassed one of its largest land positions there610,000 acres.

    When an investor thinks of stocks in the cardio-monitoring arena, names like General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) and Medtronic PLC (NYSE:MDT) tend to surface first. And well they should. Medtronic is the largest name dedicated solely to equipment that tells doctors and nurses how well a patient’s heart is functioning, while GE Healthcare smartly leverages the name of its parent company’s recognizable name to win market share in the medical equipment space.

    General Electric and Medtronic aren’t the only names in town, however, and certainly not the top prospects for an investor seeking out a fresh, undiscovered growth opportunity. That honor arguably belongs to an up-and-coming small cap outfit called Biotricity Inc. (OTCMKTS:BTCY), which is nearing its first-ever revenue.

    Don’t look for a Biotricity product quite yet, as they’re not on the market. Consumers as well as investors will want to keep their eyes and ears open for two of them soon though, however, with one of those devices being a high-precision, FDA-approved instrument for use by healthcare workers in a clinical setting. The other device is a consumer-oriented version of the same technology, giving BTCY access to not just one but two crucial markets. Even more recently Biotricity reported it was opening up its development pipeline to the fetal monitoring and sleep apnea markets. Heart-monitoring is the near-term venture, though.

    The two products are called biotricity and biolife (neither moniker is supposed to be capitalized). The latter is a wireless, remote consumer-oriented heart rate and activity monitoring device, and the former is a clinical-grade monitoring device… also wireless and remotely operated/monitored.

So long, United Space Alliance (and your one-shot rockets), we hardly knew ye. Today, it’s SpaceX’s reusable Falcon 9 that’s all the rage in space — cheaper than the rockets designed by Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) and Boeing (NYSE:BA) for their United Launch Alliance, flying more missions, and now “flight-proven” to boot.

On March 30, as you’ve almost certainly heard by now, SpaceX conducted the first-ever relaunch of a Falcon 9 first-stage rocket. In so doing, SpaceX proved the concept of reusable rockets. But that’s not all SpaceX wants to do.

It’s also amending the very lexicon we use to describe space flight.

On March 30, 2017, SpaceX’s SES-10 mission blasted off, and blasted its way into the history books. Image source: SpaceX.

It depends on what the meaning of “rocket” is

For as long as humans have launched satellites into orbit, they’ve done so with the assumption that the very expensive rockets powering the launch would be discarded, to burn up as so much space junk after launch. Such rockets were called simply “rockets” — because they were the only type built. But now SpaceX has created a new kind of rocket, one that is designed to be used over and over again.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg joined a chorus of corporate executives condemning white supremacist groups late Wednesday.

“The last few days have been hard to process. I know a lot of us have been asking where this hate comes from,” said Zuckerberg in a post to his Facebook page. “As a Jew, it’s something I’ve wondered much of my life. It’s a disgrace that we still need to say that neo-Nazis and white supremacists are wrong — as if this is somehow not obvious.”

Zuckerberg did not mention President Trump in the post.

Facebook has taken down a number of white supremacist Facebook Groups since the violence in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend. The company confirmed it removed pages for at least eight groups, including Vanguard America, White Nationalist United and Genuine Donald Trump. Unite the Right organizers had posted an event page for Saturday’s rally on Facebook, but it was removed when the company became aware of threats of real-world violence.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now: Cincinnati Financial Corporation(CINF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Cincinnati Financial (CINF) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after the insurer warned of larger catastrophe losses and lower reserve releases.

    Getty Images

    Cincinnati Financialdropped 6.7% to $69.91 today, while the S&P 500 declined 0.2% to 2,270.44.

    Sandler O’Neil’s Paul Newsome and team explain why Cincinnati Financial got hammered today:

    On January 12, 2017, before the market opened, CINF pre-announced 4Q16 catastrophe loss estimates and underwriting results. The company expects 4Q16 earnings to include pre-tax catastrophe losses of approximately $75 million to $85 million, representing an impact on the combined ratio of approximately 6.5 to 7.5 percentage points, based on estimated property casualty earned premiums…

    While the press release headline led with higher catastrophe losses, the real issue was less favorable reserve development related to the companys commercial casualty line.Cincinnati Financial has been growing faster than its peers for some time. The company has been growing primarily due to geographic expansion which is better than growth through price cutting. Nevertheless, growth during a soft market is difficult and the fourth quarter profit warning will likely lead to renewed concerns thatCincinnati Financial cannot maintain its excellent profitability in its commercial insurance business.

    Cincinnati Financial’s market capitalization fell to $11.5 billion today from $12.3 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $634 million on sales of $5.2 billion in 2015.

    When I see BlackBerry (NSDQ:BBRY)being touted as a buy, I wonder what hopeful scenario people are fantasizing about?

    The long-term chart shows a collapse in the trend. I know what you are thinking. If I buy the shares at a discount, then I will make a killing when the stock goes higher. That is a feel good psychological emotion. What if that does not happen? Yes, this chart is after the fact, but as I always say you need to be prepared for two scenarios: going in your favor and going against you.

    Yesterday, software and services company BlackBerry (NSDQ:BBRY)released its Q3 2017 earnings report. It was Blackberry’s first earnings after the company decided to shut down its legacy handset division. The earnings report appears to be more of the same. The Waterloo, Ontario-based company once again reported an earnings beat and a miss on revenues. The company reported a Non-GAAP EPS of $0.01 on revenue of $301 million against the analysts’ estimates of -$0.02 EPS on revenue of $332 million. BlackBerry stock rallied more than 3% just after the earnings were announced in pre-market trading.However, the stock moved lower as the market began to digest the ER, closing down by almost 3%.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2018

There has been a recent pullback in tech stocks, particularly in the chip sector and this has prompted me to look for some buying opportunities. This pullback gave me an opportunity to buy Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (GOOGL), Applied Materials (AMAT) and Micron Technology (MU), which I think are inexpensive large cap tech stocks, but I also have been looking for even bigger bargains in much smaller companies. At the end of each year, I sift through many small cap stocks to find bargains that have been hit by end-of-the-year tax-loss selling. With all this in mind, a stock I have been watching for quite a while now seems to be a great year-end buy, due to the recent tech stock pullback and tax-loss selling. This stock appears significantly undervalued, the balance sheet is very strong, growth is expected to increase significantly, and it could be poised for a significant rebound as tax-loss selling fades. Let’s take a closer look below:

Aehr Test Systems (AEHR) is a small but high potential tech company that is based in Fremont, California. This company makes systems that can burn-in and functionally test chip devices such as digital signal processors, microprocessors, microcontrollers, sensors, optical devices and more. The products made by this company reduce the cost of testing and perform reliability screening for many electronic devices which are becoming increasingly important in our everyday lives. The trend towards self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, robotics, and mobility are likely to lead to secular growth for many semiconductor firms and the companies that supply them.

Has Wall Street hit peak stock-market elation? Exuberance has the Dow Jones Industrial Average on the brink of piercing through a milestone of 20,000a level it has never hit before.

Read: What Dow 20,000 means for stock-market investors

Perhaps, that is why some market experts are espousing an unequivocally bullish outlook for equities. That level of enthusiasm was on full display after Robert Doll, Nuveen Asset Managements chief equity strategist, on Wednesday said he was fully invested in the market. Asked by one CNBC reporter if he recommended keeping any cash holdings, sometimes viewed as an alternative asset in an ultralow-yield environment or tanking stocks (or to take advantage of opportunities), Doll had this to say: Hold cash? What for? Markets going up!

candlestick charting: Pound/Rand(PX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    The last twelve months haven’t been kind to Praxair (PX) and Air Products & Chemicals (APD), but UBS analyst John Roberts and team argue that’s about to change, as they upgrade their shares to Buy from Neutral arguing that their earnings can withstand a slowing global economy:

    In our view, the two stocks are more alike than different. NTM P/Es are within ~0.5 pts of each other. Both stocks have declined ~20% from their historical highs the largest corrections in 20+ years aside from the financial crisis…

    Industrial gas stocks have normally grown through changes in FX, oil & China demand within normal historical ranges. And investor concerns around China forAir Products & Chemicals may still prove much bigger than reality. Nevertheless, the combination of FX & oil sector impacts on Praxair, and FX & China issues for Air Products & Chemicals, have been much larger than previously seen. With oil already down, the dollar already appreciated, & China concerns already heightened we believe forward basis would appear to carry only normal risks (& lower if FX & oil are mean-reverting, which some theories support).

    Normal high single digit EPS growth projected for both in 2017 vs 2016: Four large firms serve 70%+ of the global merchant gas market, and price normally contributes ~2% to growth. Customer older captive units being outsourced contributes another 2%. Secular drivers for oxygen include energy savings (i.e. O2 burns more efficiently than air), life sciences (healthcare & microbial processes) nitrogen secular drivers include increasing purity requirements (food freezing & semiconductors). Topline growth ~2x global GDP more normal, with EPS growth ~2x sales growth due to high fixed costs (key variable costs are inexpensive air & power).

    Financial crisis demand drop was only a few %, in line with global GDP drop Most chemicals volumes dropped 10%+ (some 40%

candlestick charting: CytRx Corporation(CYTR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another under-$10 biotechnology player that’s starting to trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade is CytRx (CYTR), which has an oncology pipeline that includes two programs in clinical development for cancer indications: aldoxorubicin and tamibarotene. This stock has been moving to the upside during the last three months, with shares up by 21%.

    If you take a look at the chart for CytRx, you’ll notice that this stock has been trending sideways inside of a consolidation chart pattern for the last two months, with shares moving between $2.27 on the downside and $2.68 on the upside. That consolidation pattern has occurred right above this stock’s 50-day and 200-day moving averages. Shares of CYTR have now started to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $2.49 a share. That move is quickly pushing CYTR within range of triggering an even bigger breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent sideways trading chart pattern.

    Market players should now look for long-biased trades in CYTR if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $2.68 to $2.80 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 154,838 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CYTR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $3.20 to $4 a share.

    Traders can look to buy CYTR off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 200-day at $2.33 a share or below more support at $2.27 a share. One can also buy CYTR off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.
