  • Cut from J Cramer article

    Casino Stocks Have Been A Gamble: Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts (WYNN), Melco Crown Entertainment (MPEL), MGM Resorts International (MGM). Other stocks mentioned: American Airlines (AAL), Spirit Airlines (SAVE), Delta Air Lines (DAL), Disney (DIS)

    Las Vegas has stopped being the gambling capital of the world, and now it is Macau. In the last few months, Macau-oriented casino stocks have been hammered. Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Melco Crown Entertainment (MPEL) have fallen 14%, 18% and 27%, respectively, since March. This is a legitimate sell-off, said Cramer, because gambling has been declining in Macau. The Chinese have been clamping down on inflation and on consumption. In addition, the government has cut down on traveling visas from Mainland to Macau. However, it might be worth buying these stocks because this bad news is priced in.

    Cramer still believes in Macau as a long-term growth story. His new favorite Macau play is MGM Resorts International (MGM); it has 50% Macau exposure and 50% exposure to Las Vegas, which is coming back. For a pure play on Macau, Cramer would buy LVS, which has more exposure to regular gamblers and less to VIP players. The company yields 2.7% and has plenty of cash. Cramer would stay on the sidelines of WYNN, since it gets half of its revenues from VIPs and is being investigated over a controversial land deal. Cramer likes WYNN's management, but he would stay away for now.

    Mr Keebon
    thanks for the support I only got a tiny position--I may sell some AT&T Monday to get a bigger position;
    here is what I found: Fidelity rate is 7.6 out of ten a High score for them, MSN Score of 10; IBD gives it a 95 and says the big boys are accumulating it- I like there financial also and they are NOT in the retail REIT market:

    HELLO to all: FIDELITY score:7.6 MSN 7 IBD 95 and pay 8.3% comments please: Sarge see article below
    As of noon trading, Starwood Property (STWD) is up $0.21 (0.9%) to $23.26 on average volume. Thus far, 895,943 shares of Starwood Property exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.2 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $23.10-$23.38 after having opened the day at $23.11 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $23.05.

    Starwood Property Trust, Inc. originates, acquires, finances, and manages commercial mortgage loans, other commercial real estate debt investments, commercial mortgage-backed securities, and other commercial real estate-related debt investments in the United States and Europe. Starwood Property has a market cap of $5.1 billion and is part of the financial sector. Shares are down 16.8% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 6 analysts who rate Starwood Property a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

    TheStreet Ratings rates Starwood Property as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, compelling growth in net income, attractive valuation levels and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

    Hello Guys
    FCX AUY TWO
    Not much to cheer about, at all.....
    Bought some SFL at $18

  • madmax19471952 madmax19471952 Jul 8, 2014 5:34 PM Flag

    Stagg
    The $650 million conversion option is what the market reacted to as well at a conversion price of $27.69 with converted shares of 23.5 million shares and additional annual dividend burden of $94 million at present dividend rate. This is a costly move unless Seadrill plans a dividend cut which I strongly suspect. That is why the shares retreated today. This is also a sign that commercial facility financing has dried up and the short window for conversion.

    Just saying lots of promise--but the delivery it simply not good
