EAT: TRADE UPDATE

Brinker was sold in the Hedgeye Virtual Portfolio this afternoon.

 

Keith just sold Brinker in the Hedgeye Virtual Portfolio as the quantitative setup, per his model, indicates that the stock is immediate-term overbought today.  The chart below illustrates our TRADE and TREND levels for the stock.  From a fundamental perspective, we like the name on the intermediate-term TREND.  Today on Hedgeye’s Best Ideas call, we ran through our top ideas and Brinker was one of our longs alongside MCD and DNKN on the long and short side, respectively.

 

From a fundamental perspective, as we wrote in our note titled “EAT – CAN THEY EXECUTE?” on 10/27, we believe that the company is operating well and will continue to improve going forward.  At Chili’s, the remodeling program, kitchen retrofits and other initiatives are going to boost sales and customer satisfaction.  As our note following earnings (10/27) highlighted, we believe that the skepticism among the sell-side community is misguided and would not interpret this negative sentiment as being anything other than a positive for a buyer of the stock.  Please refer to our note, referenced above, for further details or reply to this email for a copy.

 

This stock has been one of our favorite names for some time and is one of our top three long picks in the space over the intermediate term despite it being overbought on the TRADE duration.

SINGAPORE Q3 REVIEW

Singapore casino gaming market rebounded in Q3, as gross gaming revenues rose 29% YoY and 15% sequentially.  For comparison, Macau GGR grew 7% QoQ and 48% YoY.  S’pore gaming EBITDA grew 3% QoQ to S$882MM, 2% lower than Q1’s high of S$902MM.  Mass revenues grew 10% to S$640MM and VIP Rolling Chip Volume expanded 16% to S$36.8BN, a new record.  

 

3Q hold was 2.9%, slightly higher than Q2’s 2.82%.  Average hold in for the 2 IR’s since 1Q10 has been close to 3%.  Sequential revenue growth has been falling since 3Q 2010.

 

SINGAPORE Q3 REVIEW - spore1

 

It took MBS only 6 quarters to lead in every market share category in Q3.  The biggest shift was in VIP RC Volume share where MBS surged from 48% in Q2 to 56% in Q3.  Despite having a hold % that was 0.5% points lower, MBS extended its VIP win market share to 51.6%.  While Genting’s bleeding may continue, its slot ramp towards the end of the year may help build mass share in Q4. 

 

Singapore’s Q3 strength is a relief for the bulls as weak Q2 results had dampened optimism.  However, as GENT pointed out in their Q3 conference call, caution is warranted at least for the rest of the year.  We still see a cap on long-term growth in Singapore unless junkets are approved in the near future.

THE M3: COTAIJET; CHINA OCTOBER BANK LOANS

The Macau Metro Monitor, November 11, 2011

 

 

COTAIJET WELCOMES TAIPA COMPETITION Macau Daily Times

“We see little impact to CotaiJet,” the company’s COO, John Seale said.  “In fact, we will see increased competition because if the relocation or shut down does occur, other ferry service operators will also be moving to Taipa,” he added.

 

Seale believes changes to the ferry terminal situation will not harm Sands China. “We do not see any impact on our business in general,” he said.  Seale is also unconcerned for Sands Macao casino, located near the Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal. “Sands has been in the market for over seven years and has a very established customer base,” he emphasized.

 

“Our view is neutral,” said John Seale. However, Sands’ non-executive director Michael Leven said last month the company would “still like the [Outer Harbour] terminal to stay open as long as possible”.

 

IN SIGN OF EASING, CHINA OCTOBER BANK LOANS REBOUND Reuters

Chinese banks lent 587 BN yuan ($92.5 BN) of new loans in October, +25% MoM and flat YoY, evidence of "selected" policy easing by the government to support growth as inflation falls.  China's M2 money supply eased to 12.9% from 13.0% in September.  The median forecast by economists was for an issuance of 500 billion yuan in October and a 13.0% rise in M2 last month.
