** Hotel and casino giant MGM GRAND (MGG: 30-5/8, + 4), which has
suffered through two quarters of lower-than-expected gambling
revenues, said Tuesday its board has authorized the company's
purchase of up to 12 million common shares, representing about 20%
of the company's shares outstanding. Of those, 6 million would be
purchased at $35 per share in a tender offer. Separately, the
company anticipates that lower than average table games hold
percentage at MGM Grand Las Vegas will result in 2Q earnings in a
range of $0.25 to $0.30 per share, compared with estimates of
$0.41 per share, according to First Call. See Full Story at

Isn't this a big positive? I'm in @ 32 15/16. Would be interesting to hear some comments about the stock repurchase!

MGG is definitely a buy, excellent fundamentals compared to the other casinos out there and their potential is to only go UP. I like the company's buyback to help the stock. They obviously have good business sense and care about investors. Unfortunately, I have holding this stock for 7 months, but I am positive that it will see a dramatic increase in price, if not in Nov-Dec, then Jan. Hell, I lose about $30,000 a year there.

They say the house always wins.. On craps, I used to bet big red (7), because the house is 7 and it cleans up the table. However, I recently lost my ass playing 7 when the rollers through 34 rolls of the dice with no 7. That's how MGM must be feeling right now. I thought that this had to be the most safe investment that I have ever made, but it turns out to be the only stock on which I am losing a substantial amount of money. Obviously I am gonna stick with it until I break even or make a profit, but I'm just disgusted as to how long I have had so much money tied up in garbage. I knew I shouldn't have trusted that Armenian.

MGM Grand beats Q4 estimates, shares rise

By Sarah Tippit

LOS ANGELES, Feb 4 (Reuters) - MGM Grand Inc. (NYSE:MGG - news) reported lower
quarterly earnings on Thursday, but still beat Wall Street forecasts on record-breaking revenues, sending the hotel
and gambling company's shares rising on the day.

MGM Grand attributed the robust sales to good luck at its casinos and an emphasis on food and drink sales at its
flagship resort, the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas.

Record fourth quarter net revenues of $214.9 million versus $212.6 million a year ago, signified a rebound from a
string of several unlucky quarters at the Las Vegas-based hotel and gambling company.

For the fourth quarter, MGM reported net income of $21.2 million, or 41 cents per diluted share, versus $33.4
million, or 57 cents a diluted share last year. Analysts had expected MGM to earn 35 cents a share in the quarter,
according to investment research firm First Call.

MGM shares rose over $1.00 in early trading on the New York Stock Exchange, and ended the day 94 cents higher at

Executives at the hotel and casino giant said the higher revenues showed that ongoing efforts to upgrade the Las
Vegas resort, the MGM Grand, and expand into other markets would offset competition in the U.S. hotel and casino

''We have dramatically expanded our properties, established important marketing partnerships, embarked on an
aggressive cost containment program and significantly improved the depth of our management team,'' President Alex
Yemenidjian said in a statement.

''The fourth quarter results provide a positive early indicator of the merit of our strategic plan,'' he added.

The face-lift and renovation of the MGM Grand Resort and Casino in Las Vegas is nearly completed, the company
said, with a 29-suite mansion opening in April, and a lion habitat opening in May.

A conference center and upscale '70s themed Studio 54 nightclub, which opened recently, have boosted the
company's beverage and food revenue over 1997's fourth quarter.

However, in its second year MGM Grand's 50 percent-owned New York-New York Hotel and Casino located across
the Las Vegas Strip from the MGM Grand, fell short of the stellar results it reported over the course of last year, the
company said.

MGM Grand, which jointly owns the property with Primadonna Resorts Inc., (Nasdaq:PRIM - news) reported $6.9
million in pretax income from New York-New York compared with $9.1 million a year ago.

MGM Grand said it is now focused on closing a merger with Primadonna, expected on March 1, 1999, pending
shareholder approval. If approved, MGM Grand would boost its size and scope by acquiring Primadonna's
50-percent share in New York-New York, as well as its three gambling resorts in Primm, Nev., and two
championship golf courses in nearby California.

MGM Grand said it also plans on opening its newest casino property in Detroit in the third quarter.

Overseas properties reported positive revenues, the company said. The MGM Grand resort in Australia exceeded
expectations with net revenues of $8.9 million compared with $8.5 million last year. In its first full quarter, the
company's third Johannesburg, South Africa casino, a temporary facility, also exceeded expectations, the company

MGM Grand and its partners continue to submit bids for additional casino licenses within the remaining provinces of
the Republic of South Africa, it said. Under such deals, partners provide all project costs, and MGM Grand receives
fees for the development and management of the casinos.
