Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK) comes up short of analyst estimates with its Q4 report as regional casinos under-performed during the period.

The integration of Ameristar boosted sales considerably, but also piled on some expenses with some efficiencies still further down the road.

The company saw a big jump in its EBITDA margin, with the rate rising 410 bps to 26.3%.

Total debt at the end Q4 was $4.38B.
