Penn National Gaming, Inc.

Penn National Gaming, Inc. (PENN) is a Pennsylvania-based owner of many racetracks and casinos in the U.S. It has grown from many acquisitions and mergers, and generally seems to allow those acquired to keep their identities. A very large recent multi-billion dollar acquisition of Pinnacle Entertainment, one of its competitors and raising gaming, food, beverage and hotel revenues. It has a high profit margin well over industry average.

This was once again a Market Grader pick for us, as that research organization is good at finding value stocks that might have been overlooked because of less-than-staight up stock share price performance in the recent very strong bull market. However, other research organizations are neutral to negative including Standard & Poor's, based upon industry prospects.

Institutions are net acquirers, and analysts are generally positive.

The stock has an acceptable Zenith Index and recent share performance looks more like a pullback than a change in trend. The stock chart seems to react well to simple moving average crossovers signals. Based upon that now might not be the best time to buy without further confirmation. Earnings can be very erratic and unpredictable. Latest earnings are soaring abovve historic levels.

Revenue growth is outpacing earnings growth, a trend that is not sustainable.

Our ultimate Decision Matrix has this stock as a "sell" but going short could be risky, as it would be better to "catch a turn" near the beginning of a new move.

The CEO relies upon conference calls rather than letters and glitzy annual reports and this company is more like a giant holding company, with each casino group having their own website.

GMI Analyst is not too thrilled with the accounting citing officer changes, divestitures, and acquisitions as "high risk" events. There is significant differences between GAAP and non-GAAP accounting (about 10%). There have been unusual expenses and revenue in the past year. It has concern over possible understated liabilities.

Channeling Potential

 
The summary below includes a value for `Degree,' which refers on a
scale of 1 to 10 the range of a channel in the period under consi-
deration compared to the total range of price movement. It also looks
for the last closing price to be within the channel, otherwise zeroed.
The `Index' is the `Degree' weighted for volatility.  Generally, the
the higher the index, the more suitable is the stock for trading as
a `rolling stock' between channel high and low points.

Neural Network Prediction

"Neurostock" can only track long trades. Therefore its performance, as tracked by itself on stocks which are consistently falling, may not appear as good as it could if each "sell" signal were a "short sale."
