Some great prices to get shares. With oil and gas prices going much lower, the gaming sector should benifit from the lower gas prices. Gas at 3-3.10 is like a huge tax cut for the consumer. BYD should rebound nicly when the sellers are finished.

Boyd Gaming (NYSE:BYD) has a price to book ratio of 0.5x based on a current price of $6.30 and a book value per share of $13.83.
DISCLOSURE-long BYD- just letting you know before I get bashed.
The $13 BV can disappear really fast in a write off or two so just be aware. I wouldn't put the true BV that high as someone would have already raided the BYD gaming company if they could get close to that price for each share.
Having said all of this it maybe a good take over candidate for someone looking to expand since the current market price in only about 1/2 billion. Drawback is-the properties are getting old for the most part and need maintenance and upgrades. So the $6/share right now maybe a fair price.
I am holding onto my shares and on any more serious dips may add to my position since I think $9-$10 share maybe a fair price on a takeout.
