    By Damian Illia - May 16, 2013 | Tickers: IGT, LVS, WYNN

    After a long time of slow business, Las Vegas’ leisure demand has started to improve along with a gradual recovery of the US economy.

  • Deteriorating Morale and Stock Price at Hewlett-Packard

    By Margie Nemcick-Cruz - May 8, 2013 | Tickers: GOOG, HPQ, WYNN

    I recently discussed how Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ: WYNN) excel in employee satisfaction. Today, I wish to discuss a company that at one time was lauded for their treatment of employees, but where today employee morale has deteriorated badly, and along with it, its share price.

    When the company's founders were at the helm, employees were treated very well, and morale was high more »

  • All Roads Lead to Macau

    By Robert Hanley - May 3, 2013 | Tickers: LVS, MGM, WYNN

    While the battle for supremacy in Las Vegas is basically over, with MGM Resorts International and Caesar’s Entertainment dominating the Strip, the fight to win market share in Macau is still too close to call.  In just 10 years the Chinese region has overtaken Las Vegas as the world’s busiest gambling mecca.  The American gambling empires and their Chinese partners are currently trying to one-up each other with more »

  • Huge Dividend Increases

    By Reuben Brewer - May 2, 2013 | Tickers: F, HD, WYNN

    This year has seen some impressive dividend hikes. Ford (NYSE: F) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ: WYNN) both doubled their distributions, while Home Depot (NYSE: HD) “only” upped its distribution by a third.

    What's a Dividend Hike Worth

    There's a lot of research around the meaning of a dividend. While its hard to explicitly tie anything specific to a company's dividend policy, there are certain obvious inferences. For more »

  • Why Employee Morale Is Important for Long-Term Gains

    By Margie Nemcick-Cruz - April 30, 2013 | Tickers: GOOG, WYNN

    Shareholders often applaud corporations' "cost control" measures by driving share prices higher. But while such plans may benefit the bottom line in the short term, the long-term is generally a different story. Over two columns, I'll be comparing three companies, how they treat their employees, and how that might affect their performance as both businesses and stocks. Today, we are going to look at shining examples of corporations and more »

  • The DRIP Approach to Investing for College Students

    By Jake Pritchard - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: KO, PG, WYNN

    As many of my finance professors have told me, the secret to having financial wealth is to make your money work for you and to start early. Much emphasis should be placed upon the early portion. With interest rates being as low as they have been recently, and not looking to go up in the near future, what better time to be thinking about starting to invest in a safe more »

  • Betting on These Casino Stocks Is Safe!

    By Madhukar Dubey - April 19, 2013 | Tickers: LVS, MGM, WYNN

    The restricted approval of licenses to establish casino-resorts, limits the expansion possibilities of the companies in the game. But if you do get an approval, new properties can act as a driving force for the future growth of such companies. Keeping this in mind, I thought of analyzing some casino resort stocks to see what future endeavors they are in.

    By Madhukar Dubey - April 17, 2013 | Tickers: FB, WYNN, ZNGA

    Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA) is off to an amazing start in 2013, with around 40% returns after losing almost 75% of its value in 2012. There were many issues that contributed to the downfall of this stock, from losing its top managerial talent, the end of its special relationship with Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), and yearly losses of $200 million in 2012.

  • Don’t Buy Las Vegas Sands and its Peers Right Now

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - March 29, 2013 | Tickers: CZR, LVS, MPEL, MGM, WYNN

    Note: This article incorrectly presents MGM's trailing EV/EBITDA ratio in a table. The correct ratio is 12.54.

    After falling off a cliff during the recession, casinos have started to recover, but many markets are still soft. While most casino operators face an uncertain near-term future, one operator offers upside that is not currently priced into its share price.

  • Three Stocks that Screen for Profits in 2013

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - March 26, 2013 | Tickers: ERIE, TNH, WYNN

    I love playing around with screeners--to me it's like sieving for gold. I love plugging data into the Motley Fool.com screener (under the CAPS community tab) and finding treasure. After looking around for mid and large caps with decent yields over 3%, double digit earnings and revenue growth, and low short interest, only three companies came up: Terra Nitrogen LP (NYSE: TNH), Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ: WYNN) , and Erie more »
