    Leisure - Gaming Stocks !!!

    Leisure is a great industry to invest in right now. Leisure and gaming is sure acting well. If you look at the industry chart, it is well above the 50 day. Now this is the entire group. There are also a few dogs in the group that can hold it down.

    Just like in most cycles there is always an entertainment stock - I'll talk about Las Vegas Sands Corp (NYSE:LVS).

    The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS)
    I've included Disney here even though it is a media & entertainment conglomerate, it does have its hotels and resorts that have brought in a lot of revenue especially in the last quarter.

    The stock price dipped -0.08% because of the below-normal volume (5.59 million shares).
    The range was $64.69 to $65.43 before DIS stock closed at $65.19. The thing to note is that it is approaching its 52-week high of $67.89.

    It seems to me that DIS has hit bottom and is ready for a bounce.

    Las Vegas Sands Corp (NYSE:LVS)
    Las Vegas Sands is the fastest horse in the group and a lot of analysts are extremely bullish. LVS shares slumped on above-normal volume, as 5.32 million shares changed hands. This is much higher than the average daily volume of 4.67 million shares.

    Consequently, the stock price was down -1.52% to $65.88. Shares have risen over a 12-month period, plus 46.66%.

    It definitely seems like LVS shareholders will look to add to their holdings.

    Wynn Resorts Ltd. (NASDAQ:WYNN)

    This is one of the top 5 companies with the largest dividend increases over the last 5 years (its dividend has increased 137% during this period). Shares were down 1.09% on Friday and institutional buyers and professional investors will look to add to their positions.

    The stock is expected to keep rising. Wynn Resorts has been doing well after the recession set it back. Consumers have increasingly become more willing to increase their discretionary spending.

    It makes sense to buy calls this week even though WYNN shares are already up an impressive 43% on the year.

    And then leisure travel, Binary option traders should note the pattern in Priceline.

    Looks like Walt Disney Company is in a great shape and good prospects for the near future. It is a great way to make descend return if you play with call options there. The reason why we have such a good results are probably mainly due to the property division of the conglomerate.

    The Ones in gaming i have my eyes on most of the time are Activision Blizzard and EA , both are very easily predictable and stable, take-two interactive is another one of worth notice but it somewhat tricky to predict (like it didnt even move in the bullish direction despite GTA-V amassing $800 on that day) ...Quite Strange.

    Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) base shows a milder correction of 7%

    That has occurred in attractively mild volume. The casino operator is 3% below a 73.59 buy point.
    Las Vegas Sands has some really good fundamentals and technicals. The best in the 29-member Leisure-Gaming/Equipment industry group.

    Las Vegas Sands cash registers ringing in Macau

    Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS) introduced the “integrated resorts” theme in Asia and it has paid off big time. Nongambling revenue in Asian resorts keeps rising with malls, restaurants and conference facilities being offered. In this way, LVS attracts families and people who may not otherwise gamble.

    Macau is Asia’s gambling den and the Asian market is seeing increasing growth and consumers with larger discretionary incomes. Whereas in the U.S., consumers are spending less due to uncertainty. Revenue in the Las Vegas, Nevada casino dropped 11% in Q3 2013. Even the U.S. casinos are seeing more and more visitors from Asia. One-third of Las Vegas’ gaming visitors are from Asia.

    Casinos and their value in job creation

    Asian politicians are quite happy with casinos like LVS because they bring in tourists. Jobs are created and more money comes in to a country’s financial system.
    The leisure giant has spent $10 billion on the Parisian in Macau that will be launched in 2015. Furthermore, it there was another $1.5 billion pumped into the venture.

    Las Vegas Sands Timing has been good

    LVS CEO Sheldon Adelson saw China ‘s rise when he started a resort there in 2004. This led to the debut of a resort in Singapore in 2010.

    Now Adelson is enjoying increased profits from the Four Seasons Macao and the Venetian Macao. In total, 16 million guests visited Las Vegas Sands’ Macau properties in Q3 2013. The major driver of growth has been LVS’ focus on the mass market. The product has been well tailored to the market and this has been reflected in the increasing revenues and stock price.

    Technically and fundamentally speaking, LVS shares look good for calls in the coming months.
