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.

ESPN's ESPY Awards to Make Las Vegas Debut At MGM Grand on
February 14, 2000

LAS VEGAS, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The annual review of the best performers, performances and highlights in
sports, ESPN's ESPY Awards, will take the stage at the MGM Grand, ''The City of Entertainment,'' on Monday,
February 14, 2000 at 4:30 p.m. PST. This event marks the first time that the annual ceremony bringing together stars
of the sports and entertainment world will be held in Las Vegas.

''We are ecstatic about becoming the new home of ESPN's ESPY Awards,'' said Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Grand's
president/chief operating officer. ''The ESPY Awards is the greatest night in sports/entertainment and provides us
the opportunity to continue to play an integral role in hosting such world-class events. The MGM Grand and ESPN
look forward to introducing this event to Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world.''

ESPY Awards are given to the Performer of the Year in a variety of professional and college sports; nine
Cross-Cutter categories have nominees from all sports. Nominees are chosen by the ESPY Select Nominating
Committee, a blue-ribbon panel of sports executives, journalists and retired athletes. Winners are decided by the
ESPY Finalist Committee made up of current athletes and ESPN/ABC commentators and personnel. In addition, the
Arthur Ashe Award for Courage is presented to an individual whose contributions transcend all of sports.

''After seven great years in New York, we have an excellent opportunity to present the show in an exciting new
venue,'' said ESPN President George Bodenheimer. ''Like the ESPYs, Las Vegas has been evolving. It's now more
than an entertainment capital, becoming more popular with vacationers and families every year and the MGM Grand
provides a world-class entertainment setting.''

The many celebrities who have taken part in the ESPYs include David Letterman, Bill Cosby, Denzel Washington,
Dustin Hoffman, Billy Crystal, Hootie and the Blowfish, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Rosie O'Donnell, Dennis Franz,
Keri Russell, Dylan McDermott, Bill Murray, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Robert Goulet, Matthew Broderick,
Sarah Jessica Parker, Chris Rock, Vivaca A. Fox, Lyle Lovett, Ray Charles, and others.

Samuel L. Jackson hosted the 1999 telecast. Previously, Dennis Miller, John Goodman, Norm Macdonald, Jeff
Foxworthy, and Tony Danza have hosted the event.

A portion of the proceeds from the ESPYs are given to The V Foundation, established at the inaugural ESPYs in
1993 by ESPN with the late Jim Valvano to raise funds for cancer research. Ticket prices and an on-sale date for the
event will be announced at a later date.

The 2000 ESPY Awards is being presented by ESPN in association with the MGM Grand, ''The City of
Entertainment.'' The MGM Grand boasts 5,005 rooms and suites, the Studio 54 nightclub, ''EFX'' starring nine-time
Tony Award winner Tommy Tune, signature restaurants and chefs, and the new must-see Lion Habitat. The
17,157-seat MGM Grand Garden Arena features mega concerts as well as special events including the Barbra
Streisand Millennium Concert, Andre Agassi's annual Grand Slam for Children Benefit, the Fox Billboard Music
Awards, along with championship boxing.

Really quiet on here for a very long time. I like MGG's solid earnings and low P/E relative to other players in this industry. I don't think gambling or Los Vegas will ever go away, and I like MGM's focus on very lucrative markets. The charts indicate that the stock is oversold right now--any thoughts on price action in the short and long term?
