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.

Last month, they poured another $177 million into it, upping its ownership stake to more than 50 percent. Just last week, Softbank (OTCPK:SFTBY) – Alibaba’s largest shareholder – was reported to be pondering a $1 billion investment in Paytm, which sources say could allow it to hive off its separately branded Paytm eCommerce marketplace. It’s also been suggested that having a Softbank investment that large in Paytm could assuage regulator concerns over China’s possible lock on the Indian market – Paytm currently has 200 million users in India. In December, a company vice president said that Paytm was doing more transactions – 7 million a day – than all of the combined debit and credit transactions in India.

    Look out Cannabis Science Inc (OTCMKTS:CBIS), and step aside Medical Marijuana Inc (OTCMKTS:MJNA). There’s a new cannabis name on the scene…. Algae Dynamics Corp. (OTCMKTS:ADYNF). It may not be known (or named) like its marijuana peers, but give it time. This small cap company has a very big idea, and it’s going to sprout soon.

    Yes, Algae Dynamics is an algae company. It’s not just an algae company though.

    Algae Dynamics is the owner of the proprietary BioSilo ™ process. BioSilo is a way of growing algae quickly and effectively…. a mix of an open-pond system and a photobioreactor, which is a light-driven approach to growing algae. It can be viewed as a “best of both worlds” approach, lowering the typical cost of algae farming, while the modular design makes it easy to maintain.

    The company could go a lot of directions with the technology, Most of the tens of thousands of species of algae are rather flexible in how they can be purposed, and what they can become. Algae Dynamics is first focused on the development of two kinds of products though…. Chlorella, and Omega-3.

    Chlorella is a type of microalgae that can be processed into a consumable powder by drying it until it takes a powder form, similar to coffee. Chlorella is rich in minerals, prebiotics, vitamins, and other nutritional substances. It can be added to a baked goods and a number of other products, or taken as a supplement on its own. Chlorella is used in over 1,000 products in the food and beverage markets. Algae Dynamics estimates the global Chlorella market was $210.3 million in 2014 and is expected to reach $265.5 million in 2018.

    Despite a market for Chlorella in North America, there are no commercial North American producers of it.

    Due to its health benefits, Omega-3 oil can be added to a very wide range of products. Consumers are increasingly aware of these benefits too, leading to substantial growth in the industry; health supplements compr

Chicago is making moves to keep foreign entrepreneurs in its city.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced this week that five local universities are piloting Global Entrepreneur in Residence programs. Designed to help talented entrepreneurs in the U.S., EIR programs enable entrepreneurs to work with or for universities while building their startups.

EIR programs also help foreign entrepreneurs obtain visas in order to do all of this.

A provision in the popular H-1B visa gives American nonprofit research institutions the authority to sponsor applicants and be exempt from the 85,000 annual visa cap.

So those accepted into an EIR program don’t have to cross their fingers to be admitted through the lottery system, which determines who receives the visas each year. That’s becoming increasingly important, as the odds of getting a visa through the quota get slimmer every year. In 2016, 236,000 foreigners applied, up from 172,500 in 2014.

In Chicago, the participating universities include Columbia College, DePaul University, Illinois Institute of Technology, Loyola University and Northwestern University.
