  • MGM Resorts International - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 1 comment
    Dec 19, 2013 4:39 PM | about stocks: MGM

    The Chart of the Day is MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM). I found the stock by sorting the New High List, eliminating the stocks that didn't have positive gains of the last week and month and used the Flipchart feature to pan through the charts. since the Trend Spotter signaled another buy on 12/6 the stock is up 12.00%.

    It is a global hospitality company, operating a portfolio of destination resort brands, including Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and The Mirage. The Company's resorts offer gaming, hotel, dining, entertainment, retail, and other resort amenities. It owns and operates properties located in Nevada, Mississippi and Michigan, and has investments in some properties in Nevada, Illinois and Macau. Through its hospitality management subsidiary, the Company holds a growing number of development and management agreements for casino and non-casino resort projects around the world.
