INVESTOR RESEARCH: MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM).

Things could be worse for MGM right now. Vegas is getting an NFL team, and the economic environment in the U.S. has people returning to casinos. MGM has the most to gain from this as it has more exposure in Vegas than any of its rivals, and the company has casinos in several locations in the northeast as well including Washington D.C.-based MGM National Harbor which opened in December 2016, and the newly acquired Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Beyond the U.S., MGM also boasts a significant footprint in Macau. Macau is the only place in China where it’s legal to gamble—and is the world’s largest gambling hotspot—and MGM plans to open a new location there on the Cotai Strip later this year.
But what got me excited about MGM was a technical pattern on its chart. Let’s take a look.

What we’re looking at here is called a cup and handle pattern.
A cup and handle is easy to recognize as it looks like what it’s name suggests, a cup that is shaped like a U—and not a V—and a handle that has a downward drift. You can see both marked in the chart above.
The cup and handle pattern is a bullish continuation pattern that’s used to identify buying opportunities. It was identified by William J. O’Neil creator of the CAN SLIM investing system, and discussed in his book How To Make Money In Stocks.
Generally, cups that are longer and more U-shaped provide a stronger signal, and an ideal cup shouldn’t be too deep. The handle should form at the top of the cup pattern as it does on MGM.
To trade a cup and handle pattern, wait for the price to close above the resistance, or upper trend line, of the pattern. For MGM, we’re just now seeing a breakout above this level which you can see clearly from the zoomed-in chart below.

When discussing the cup and handle pattern in his book, O’Neil didn’t give a formula for measuring a price target. However, Investopedia recommends measuring the distance between the bottom of the cup and the breakout level, and extending that distance upward from the breakout. In MGM’s case, that gives us a price target of around $45, or 44% above where the price is last Friday, May 26.
Fundamentally-speaking, MGM doesn’t look too expensive with a price to book of 2.85 and a price to earnings of 14.63. Do your own due diligence to understand if this is a stock you’d like to add to your portfolio. If it is, it’s at a great entry point now.
I wish you all an enjoyable Memorial Day.

Investing is Inherently Risky There are risks inherent in all investments, which may make such investments unsuitable for certain persons. These include, for example, economic, political, currency exchange, rate fluctuations, and limited availability of information on international securities. You may lose all of your money trading and investing. Do NOT enter any trade without fully understanding the worst-case scenarios of that trade. And do NOT trade with money you cannot afford to lose. Past performance of an investment is not necessarily indicative of its future results. No assurance can be given that any implied recommendation will be profitable or will not be subject to losses. Hypothetical Results Are Reported Results and examples used in the Company’s advertisements, books, videos, websites, and other media—including on the Site and the Network—are, in some cases, based on hypothetical (simulated) trades. Plainly speaking, these trades were not actually executed. Hypothetical performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, hypothetical results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the hypothetical results may have under-or-over compensation for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Hypothetical trading programs generally are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. Hypothetical results also do not account for commissions or slippage. The Company’s simulations assume purchase and sale prices believed to be attainable. Yet traders are going to be getting into trades at different times and using various exit approaches, which may result in different pricing and outcomes. You may or may not receive the best available price on the purchase or the sale of a position in actual trading. Information provided by the Company is not investment advice. The Company is not a registered investment adviser, stock broker, or brokerage. You agree that the Company does not represent, warrant, or take responsibility that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown. Examples published by the Company are selected for illustrative purposes only. They are not typical and do not represent the typical results of all stocks within the Company’s software or its individual scans and searches. No independent party has audited any hypothetical performance contained at this Web site, nor has any independent party undertaken to confirm that they reflect the trading method under the assumptions or conditions specified.
