Wynn Resorts Swings to Q4 Profit, Beating View (WYNN)

Filed in dividend, Gold Investment, o, revenue, shares, Wynn Resorts by on February 11, 2011 0 Comments

Casino operator Wynn Resorts, Limited ( WYNN ) on Friday said it swung to a fourth quarter profit, beating analyst estimates, aided chiefly by a huge jump in its Macau unit. The Las Vegas-based company reported fourth quarter net income of $114.2 million, or 91 cents per share, compared with a net loss of $5.2 million, or -4 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Revenue surged 33% from last year to $1.24 billion. On average, Wall Street analysts expected a much smaller profit of 71 cents per share, on lower revenue of $1.134 billion. On a sour note, however, the company said that although its Macau business remained robust, that the Las Vegas casino market would likely continue to struggle in 2011. Wynn Resorts shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Friday. The Bottom Line Shares of Wynn Resorts ( WYNN ) have a .83% dividend yield, based on last night’s closing stock price of $120.15. The stock has technical support in the $112-$116 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $126-$127 price levels. Wynn Resorts, Limited ( WYNN ) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.

Market Wrap-Up for Dec.16 (FDX, ABX, DFS, V, MA, WYNN, SBUX, more)

There was an interesting story out today talking about how Bill Gross’s $250 billion PIMCO Total Return Fund may be investing 10% of its assets in equity securities in 2011 — and has seemingly turned a lackluster market right back up. Gross, the so-called “bond king,” has grown much less bullish on bonds, but has been on record in some of his recent newsletters that he likes income plays such as dividend stocks for long-term investors. We sent out our Thursday “Dividend Top 100 Names on Our Watchlist” post this morning. Each Thursday we look at our various proprietary watchlists and sort through the names that are trading at or near all-time highs and put them in a list to share with all our Premium subscribers. Outside of looking for names that we feel are becoming a real bargain, this list is what we are using to find our next recommendations. Of course, the stocks on this list that have low or minimal dividend yields would only be suited for “aggressive” investors who are seeking growth over yield. I hope everyone checks it out! There appeared to be a bit of rotation out of gold today going on with mining plays Agnico-Eagle Mines ( AEM ) and Barrick Gold ( ABX ) both getting hit hard, along with gold prices. On the earnings front, Discover Financial Services ( DFS
