Shares of Wynn Resorts dropped 11% to$90.72 today, while the S&P 500 gained 0.2% to 2,246.19.

My colleague Dimitra DeFotis, who runs Barron’s Emerging Markets Daily, explains what happened:

The move is another in a series to tackle the flight of illicit Chinese cash via casinos. According to a South China Morning Post story, Macaus monetary authority is halving the cash withdrawals allowed for holders of China UnionPay bank cards, effective Saturday. Billions of yuan reportedly have disappeared from the mainland, despite government currency restrictions on card purchases of gambling chips.

Wynn wasn’t the only Macau casino operator that took it on the chin today. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) tumbled 13% to $54.67, while Melco Crown Entertainment (MPEL) plunged 14% to $16.87, and MGM Resorts International (MGM) dropped 4.3% to $28.65.

    The big casinos certainly want to spend big. Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) says a new integrated resort in Japan will cost anywhere from $6 billion to $10 billion, two to three times more than it spent on building its brand new French-themed Parisian resort in Macau. MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM) says it, too, could spend $10 billion for a new casino in Japan, quadruple the cost of its MGM Cotai that’s scheduled to open later this year. Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) hasn’t put a price tag on it yet, though it spent over $4 billion to open the Palace in Macau last August, but CEO Steve Wynn says the opportunity is “thoroughly delicious.”

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Invest In 2018: Duke Energy Corporation(DUK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.KIPLINGER.COM]

    Duke Energy Corp. (DUK), the largest generator of electricity in the nation, is awfully steady.

    DUK has more than 7.4 million customers located in hotbeds of growth, and it boasts a generating capacity of 52,697 megawatts. The firm also provides natural gas distribution in many of its main service areas, so Duke is a double threat in that way. Cold winter? Nat gas provides more oomph. Hot summer? Electricity demand spikes.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Invest In 2018: Nam Tai Electronics Inc.(NTE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another stock that’s starting to move within range of triggering a big breakout trade is Nam Tai Electronics (NTE), which is an electronics manufacturing and design services provider to a select group of the world’s leading OEMs of telecommunications and consumer electronic products. This stock has been destroyed by the sellers so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 41%.

    If you look at the chart for Nam Tai Electronics, you’ll notice that this stock has been uptrending for the last month and change, with shares moving higher from its low of $6.05 to its recent high of $8.38 a share. During that uptrend, shares of NTE have been making mostly higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of NTE within range of triggering a big breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NTE if it manages to break out above some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.38 to $8.79 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 647,483 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NTE will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from April that started near $11.50 a share. If this stock gets into that gap with volume, then the upside is tremendous and we could easily see NTE hit $11 to $12 a share.

    Traders can look to buy NTE off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 50-day at $7.42 a share, or below more key support at $7.22 a share. One can also buy NTE off strength once it takes out that breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Buy For 2018

Increased prices of its snacks and beverages helped PepsiCo beat consensus estimates on earnings per share and revenue in its recent second quarter earnings announcement. The company’s core earnings came in at $1.50 per share on revenues of $15.71 billion, outperforming analysts’ expectations by 10 cents and $100 million, respectively. While volumes were flat, net pricing trended upwards by around 1%. Profits in the quarter were also helped by the sale of its minority stake in Britvic, the gains from which the company intends to reinvest in its business through the rest of the year. By focusing on selling premium products, and by transforming its portfolio to reflect the increasing demand for healthier food and beverage options, the company can continue to deliver strong results in the future. For the full year, PepsiCo raised its earnings guidance to $5.13 per share, from $5.09 earlier, citing a lower foreign currency translation impact.

wall street stocks

Oil and gas majors like ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) and Royal Dutch Shell Plc (NYSE:RDS-B) have had a rough run since mid-2014. But these two industry giants are making the changes needed to deal with today’s difficult energy markets, just like they’ve done time and time before. You could worry, but you really don’t need to. Here are their bonafides.

The stalwart

Exxon has gotten a lot of bad press recently. It’s being investigated by several states over its disclosure practices when it comes to the impact of global warming on its business. And it just pulled 3.3 billion barrels of oil from its reserves, an unusual occurrence for this conservatively-run company. But business doesn’t move in a straight line — it’s a sine curve. And since mid-2014 oil has been a tough business.

    Volume % Change: 351%

    From a technical perspective, SOHU ripped sharply higher here with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of SOHU into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance at $67.80. Shares of SOHU are now quickly moving within range of triggering another breakout trade. That trade will hit if SOHU manages to take out Monday’s high of $69.71 to its 52-week high at $70.63 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SOHU as long as it’s trending above Monday’s low of $66.95 or above that first breakout level of $67.80 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.01 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then SOHU will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $75 to $80.

Lexicon has positive results in Type 1 diabetes

Though our ability to control Type 1 diabetes mellitus has improved dramatically thanks to new technologies and fast-acting insulin, a substantial number of patients are still at risk for serious sequelae, such as loss of consciousness or seizure, due to low blood sugar.

A key therapeutic target that has emerged in recent years is the sodium-glucose cotransporter (SGLT) class of molecules. SGLTs 1 and 2 control various organ systems’ abilities to pull glucose from fluid, and inhibition of these molecules can help regulate the spikes and dips in blood glucose associated with feeding and fasting.

With that, we are lowering our PT of Bank of America,Citigroup andGoldman Sachs from $20, $70 and $243 to $18, $63 and $214, respectively…

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Taylor & Martin Group Inc (TMG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    We rate THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC as a Buy with a ratings score of A+. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, increase in net income, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook. 

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC’s earnings per share improvement from the most recent quarter was slightly positive. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC increased its bottom line by earning $4.70 versus $3.49 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($7.39 versus $4.70).

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    Net operating cash flow has increased to $743.90 million or 10.04% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 0.44%.

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    The stock has risen over the past year as investors have generally rewarded the company for its earnings growth and other positive factors like the ones we have cited in this report. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
