Ted,

I don't know the anwser that question. This stock can't seem to make
up it's mind on direction. I feel the pressure is to the upside.

Still haven't bought in yet.

Got back into MGG today. I probably jumped the gun, but at $34.3625,
the upside looks better than the downside. This month is going to be
rocky for stocks.

I'm holding on for at least $40. At estimates of $2.25 for the year,
this is looking pretty good.

Best of Luck,

Steve

I'm waiting to see how this Asian thing gets played out. Casino stock earnings will be affected greatly by the Asian outcome. Casino paper might evan be a good short in the coming months.

This stock is going up. Earnings look good and lots of cash. I guess
$34 looks pretty good right now. $45 is not far off.

Hi Steve $45 would be just dandy. The company has nice cash flow to boot.

I have concluded that MGG is the Rodney D. of casino stocks. Earnings came out today at 58 cents (which is really good) but no explosive gains on an up day.

Mr. Beast,

MGG usually does nothing after earnings are released. When they do
beat the street, a few days later the buyers come in. MGG is under
pressure because of vacant rooms in Las Vegas.

This will not effect the MGG in the near term because of NYNY being
hot and Marriott recommending MGM Grand in their reservation system.

I love trading this stock. This company stock price is way undervalued. It is a $50 stock. At $2.20 esp past earnings and even
higher for future earnings.

I bought some yesterday, I am holding these shares for a while. Hold
for a year and you should be happy as long as there is not major stock
market event. Just my thoughts.

Steve

MGM Grand is a great deal at $35. Although over the next year or so, earnings growth will be limited because of the upcoming competitiveness in the Vegas market (Bellagio, The Venetian, Paris, and Mandalay Bay), MGM has foreseen this and is spending $700 million to upgrade its flagship property. This will give MGM the ability to hold on to its market share when all the new places open. I don't expect the renovation to increase their market share or earnings, but it will let them hold on to what they have now. MGM also owns half of NYNY and this is one of the best properties in Vegas. NYNY will hold its own when the new resorts come online.

The only way a casino's profits can substantially increase is by building (or acquiring) new properties. MGM will be building in Detroit and Atlantic City soon. They'll be in a great situation in Detroit, having one of the three precious gaming licenses. In Atlantic City, they'll be one of the new Vegas-style properties that Atlantic City currently lacks. Atlantic City casinos are currently warehouses for gambling. The "big" attraction there now is the new "Wild West" themed casino area at Bally's. The gamblers all flocked there for something new and fun, putting big profits on the bottom line of Bally's. Just imagine what MGM can do with an entire entertainment-themed resort there.

The MGM CFO expects 1998 earnings in the $2.00 to $2.10 range. That gives a forward P/E of about 17. Right now, investors are focused on the upcoming Vegas competition and have depressed MGG's price, but they haven't factored in the growth from Detroit and Atlantic City. In a few years, MGM will be one of the premier diversified gaming operators. With this kind of upside potential, MGG at $35 is a bargain. It's only a matter of time before investors look beyond the short term supply concerns in Vegas and see the big picture.
