SHFL Entertainment (SHFL +2.3%) missed estimates with its FQ4 report but execs did a good job of highlighting the firm's potential on an earnings conference call (transcript). In a nutshell, the company is shifting its focus toward the electronic table game market (sales up 37%) away from the automatic shufflers (sales up 8%) which are its roots. Management also pointed out the company has no debt on its credit line and international growth opportunities are expanding.
