  • Patience With TWTR, Don't Jump In Yet

    TWTR is now trading at around 42 down from a high of over 50 on the first day of trading. Don't get tempted and jump in. There's still more to the dowside. Be patient and wait for a better entry.

  • Time To Double Down On LVS?

    Time to Double Down on LVS?

    First published on 8/16/2012

    It's been a brutal several months for gaming stocks and LVS in particular. It dropped from a high of 62.09 on 4/12/12 to a low of 34.72 on 7/26/12. Since then it has rallied to close at 41.43 on 8/17/12. Unlike past rallies, I think the stock has turned the corner and poised to rally from here.

    Fundamental Case:

    It's a bit pricey on a P/E basis, 24 vs. 18.61 for the industry. On a PEG basis, it's quite attractive, 0.82 vs. 1.44 for the industry. I tend to place more weight on the PEG than the PE. The current price is not pricing in the higher future growth. Assuming all else being constant, an expansion of PEG from 0.82 to 1.44 would give us a price of 72.75. Even with PEG going to only half at 1.13, the price would be at north of 55.

    Technical Case:

    LVS has recently crossed above the 20 day smoothing mechanism, pulled back and bounced off of it. Furthermore, it just broke through resistance at 41.19. Both these factors add more weight to the bullish case.


    I like this stock both from a fundamental and technical perspective. It's a buy on LVS.

  • SZYM To Trade Lower - Exit Long And Short The Stock

    What a wild ride for SZYM. The stock went from a high of 16.31 on 4/3/12 to a low of 9.40 on 5/3/12 (a 40% drop in just a month) and then rally to a high of 12.59 on 6/12/12 (a run-up of 34% in a little over a month). Don't let the recent rally fool you into thinking this stock is heading higher still.

    Let's consider some of the metrics I look at.

    1. The short ratio - it's 13.90. This means that it would take 13.9 days based on average daily volume to cover the number of shares short. 13.90 is a high number indeed. A lot of people are betting against this company.
    2. Technically, the name looks a bit stretched.
    3. On a strong tape on Tuesday, SZYM actually declined a bit. This is not a good sign.

    SZYM to trade lower.
