200.HK – signed a memorandum of understanding with Veremonte Espana S.L. of Spain to hold talks for the management of at least one casino to be developed as part of the BCN Dream resort being developed by Veremonte near Barcelona.

Takeaway:  Given the press releases during 2013, we believed this had already occurred - so we don't consider this "new" news.


PENN – filed an appeal with the Iowa Racing & Gaming Decision regarding the IRGC's April 17 decision to close the Argosy Casino.  The IRGC has 20 calendar days from the April 22 appeal filing date or Monday, May 12.  The IRGC has three options: deny the appeal; accept the appeal and proceed to another hearing (similar to the hearing held at the end of March); or do nothing (in which case the appeal would be considered denied). 

Takeaway:  We give 3:2 odds the IRGC either denies or does nothing. Given the events at the March hearing, it seems unlikely the IRGC would opt for another hearing - especially given PENN's commentary last week on the Company's Q1 2014 earnings call. 

PNK - the $300 million Belterra Park will open Thursday, May 1 with 1,500 slot machines, a rebuilt thoroughbred race track, three sit-down restaurants, another three snack or beverage outlets and space for events.

Takeaway:  100 less slots than previously guided.  Increased competition for gaming dollars around Cincinnati.

MGM & WYNN – have indicated they want Massachusetts to repeal a provision requiring gambling facilities to report and withhold 5 percent for state income tax on certain winnings over $600.

Takeaway:  MA may prove to be a tough place to do business... 


OEH - the iconic Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice, Italy has reopened for the 2014 season with a stylish new restaurant, called Oro.  Oro seats 40 patrons and overlooks the the lagoon.  Summer 2014 rates at the Hotel Cipriani start from US$1,025, including taxes and breakfast, based on two sharing a Double Garden View Room with Balcony

Takeaway:  What is old is new, how about a new ticker symbol for the new brand name? May we suggest NYSE "BMD" or "BHG" 

MSC - Agents can earn more selling MSC Divina in the Med next summer Seatrade Insider 

The decision to send Miami-based MSC Divina back to the Mediterranean during summer 2015 will help US travel agents entice their clients to Europe for higher-ticket cruises while taking ship out of the competitive Caribbean, said Rick Sasso, president and CEO of MSC Cruises USA.  The move is a change from the line's original deployment plan, which would have seen Divina based in Miami year-round during 2015.  "Travel agents can make much more money in the Mediterranean than the Caribbean in June and July," Sasso said.

Takeaway:   This is cruisetalk for an exec telling folks we made a mistake to overcrowd the Caribbean market.  Cruise companies seem to a step behind in gauging where strong demand lies - this year's Europe, last year's North America. 


Macau Unemployment Rate Jan 2014 - Mar 2014 DSEC

Macau's unemployment rate (1.7%) for Jan-Mar 2014 was unchanged from the December 2013-February 2014 period.  Gaming employment fell 2.6% from the previous period to 85,600. 

Takeaway:  We're more worried about labor supply and labor inflation when the new Cotai properties add to the table supply.


Large junkets credit - According to a UBS report, a junket operator is reporting some larger junkets may be running tight in issuing credit because of a rise in the cost of capital.  Credit VIP volume is not growing, but cash VIP play is, said a junket operator.  Cash VIP, meaning agents lending cash to players vs. players using credit from a junket operator, now accounts for 50% of VIP business.  

A junket operator added that because of collection concerns, agents are being tighter with credit extension, so that while the number of players is up, they are gambling less.

Takeaway: Whether this is an isolated comment from a junket, we don't know.  We haven't heard this from any of our contacts.  May might provide an indication as we are expecting a very strong month.


G2E Asia - May 20-22, 2014 at the Venetian Macau announced the Keynote Address speaker will be Pansy Ho.  Other high profile speakers include: Gamal Aziz, president, Wynn Macau Ltd.; Edward Bowers, senior vice president, Global Gaming Development, MGM Resorts International; Grant Bowie, chief executive officer, MGM Resorts China Holdings Limited; Grant Chum, senior vice president, Global Gaming Strategy, Sands Corporation; Mike Mecca, president and CEO, Galaxy Entertainment Group Limited; Jorge Sarmiento, president and COO, The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation; Kelvin Tan, chief of international marketing and executive vice president, Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd.; Will Shen, Vice President of Asia Development, Caesars Entertainment.


Florida Gaming Expansion - Gov. Rick Scott and the Seminole Tribe of Florida are close to reaching a new deal that could force legislators to once again consider the future of gambling in Florida.  The Scott administration is considering a May special session (beginning May 19) to consider a new compact with the tribe.  Florida legislators are scheduled to end their annual session on May 2.  The Seminoles and Florida reached a deal in 2010 to give the Seminole exclusive rights to have blackjack and other table games at three Broward County casinos and others in Immokalee and Tampa. Part of that deal expires in 2015. 

Takeway:  Expect more commentary from LVS, WYNN and Genting Singapore in the days ahead.  We all agree that Florida has destination type potential.


Saipan Gaming Expansion - the Lottery Commission must review applications from two investor groups looking to develop an integrated casino resort on the island country. Marianas Stars Entertainment Inc. and Best Sunshine International Ltd. each have until May 5 to deposit $30 million in an escrow to be further considered for a grant of an exclusive casino license. 

Takeaway:  As we highlighted in our March 3 and March 25 Leisure Letters, we remain very skeptical and doubt such integrated resorts will get buitd because the current annual visitation of approximately 450,000 (comprised of 40% from Japan and 20% from China), would only fill a small percentage of the total 730,000 room nights at a 2,000 room hotel. Thus, we remain skeptical of the casinos profitability and viability given the isolated location.  Additional airlift is required to ensure casino visitation.


Sri Lanka rejects gaming bill - the Sri Lankan government refused to allow casinos at three super-luxury resorts planned in the capital after opponents said they would lead to prostitution.

Takeaway:  Prostitution at casinos? Say it isn't so...


Hedgeye remains negative on consumer spending and believes in more inflation.  Following  a great call on rising housing prices, the Hedgeye Macro/Financials team is turning decidedly less positive. 

Takeaway:  We’ve found housing prices to be the single most significant factor in driving gaming revenues over the past 20 years in virtually all gaming markets across the US.

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues

The table below lists our current investment ideas as well as a list of potential ideas we are in the process of evaluating (watch list).  We intend to update this table regularly and will provide detail on any material changes.

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 1


Consumer Staples outperformed the broader market last week, rising 0.4% versus the S&P500 at -0.1%. XLP is up 1.9% year-to-date vs the SPX at 0.8%. The coming week is marked by a number of earnings releases.



Earnings Calls (in EST):


Tuesday (4/29):  ADM (9am); HLF (11am)


Wednesday (4/30):  ENR (9am); SAM (5am)


Thursday (5/1):  JAH (8:30am); AVP (9am); K (9:30am); CHD (10am); CLX (1:30pm); KRFT (5pm)


Friday (5/2):  NWL (8am); EL (9:30am)



For the last two months, XLP is bullish on immediate term TRADE and intermediate term TREND durations from a quantitative set-up.

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 2


The Hedgeye U.S. Consumption Model shows a muted outlook over recent weeks, with only 5 of the 12 metrics flashing green (up from only 3 last week). 

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 3


Despite the bullish quantitative set-up for the sector, we continue to believe that the group is facing numerous headwinds, including:


  • U.S. consumption growth is slowing as inflation rises, in-line with the Macro team’s 1Q14 theme of #InflationAccelerating, and Q2 2014 theme of #ConsumerSlowing
  • The economies and currencies of the emerging market – once the sector’s greatest growth engine – remain weak with the prospect of higher inflation in 2014 eroding real growth
  • The sector is loaded with a premium valuation (P/E of 19.1x)
  • Less sector Yield Chasing as Fed continues its tapering program
  • The high frequency Bloomberg weekly U.S. Consumer Comfort Index has not seen any real improvement over the past 6 months, but improved to -25.4 versus -29.1 in the prior week

Last Week’s Research Notes


Quantitative Setup

In the charts below we look at the largest companies by market cap in the Consumer Staples space from both a quantitative perspective and fundamental aspect where we can offer one.  As you will see over time, sometimes our fundamental view does not align with the quantitative setup (though not often).


BUD – bullish beta chasing in low-beta-slow-growth (as a style factor) continues; TREND support = $104.79

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 7



DEO – someone forgot to tell DEO about the style factor party; still bearish TREND w/ resistance = $124.76

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 8



KO – big league bearish to bullish TREND reversal w/ TREND support now = $39.17

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 9



PEP – bullish TREND remains intact = $83.63 support

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 10



GIS – still one of the best looking bullish intermediate-term TRENDs on our quantitative signal = $50.11 support

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 11



MDLZ – finally showing some separation (to the upside) from our TREND support line of $34.15

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 12



KMB – in spite of this week’s correction, our intermediate-term TREND support line of $107.24 holds

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 13



PG - bullish beta chasing in low-beta-slow-growth (as a style factor) continues; TREND support = $79.71

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 14



MO – textbook bearish to bullish TREND reversal (in FEB 2014); TREND support = $36.97

Just Charts: The Slow Grind Continues - 15



PM – grinding hard to earn the style factors the market is bucking up for – TREND line = $83.84

The Era of The Common Man?

“One man with courage makes a majority.”

-Andrew Jackson


The broad based economic progress of the 1 period in American free-market-capitalist #history remains unrivaled. In the thick of it, many called Andrew Jackson’s 1828 sweep to become the 7th President of the United States, “the era of the common man…”


Jackson represented the victory of an expanded electorate, a rebuke of the old elite… To many Americans, the president embodied the energy, mobility, and enterprise that they believed defined their nation.” (The First Tycoon, pg 84)


Shocking, I know. The People didn’t need the Federal Reserve to believe. In fact, leaders with courage ran against it; shutting down initial iterations of a US central bank, twice! On Friday, Janet Yellen said there “may be a flaw in how the Federal Reserve forecasts inflation.” Believe her. Until we abandon this un-elected US Policy to Inflate, the common man, woman, and child in America is going to eat it.

The Era of The Common Man? - Yellen03.20.2014


Back to the Global Macro Grind


Eat it? Yep. Chow down, rinse it back with some coffee and OJ, and like it.


If you back out your rent, food, gas, education, etc. (cost of living), you may not have noticed the following last week:

  1. Corn prices up another +2.4% last week to +17.3% YTD
  2. Nickel prices up another +2.4% last week to +31.5% YTD
  3. Coffee prices up another +1.4% last week to +79.8% YTD
  4. Orange Juice up another +1.3% last week to +16.1% YTD

If you want to call that cherry picking, fine. Eat some of those too. But inflation continues to slow US consumption growth. And all 3 major US market intermediate-term TREND signals (currencies, stocks, and bonds) continue to agree with the same. On that score:

  1. US Dollar Index was down -0.1% to -0.4% YTD (and remains well below our long-term TAIL risk line of $81.17 resistance)
  2. US Consumer Discretionary (XLY) and Growth (Russell 2000) stocks were -0.5% and -1.3% last wk to -5.1% and -3.5% YTD, respectively
  3. US 10yr Treasury Bond Yield dropped another 6 basis points on the week to 2.66% (down -37 bps YTD)

Meanwhile everyone and their brother from the #OldWall in NYC to Washington and now California (PIMCO calling for “high 2% US Growth”) continue to confuse nominal growth (inflation) with real (inflation adjusted) growth.


On Wednesday the US will release GDP for the 1st quarter, and it will likely:

  1. Have a 1% handle on it (down hard from the sequential peak of +4.1% in Q413)
  2. See the Deflator (yes, you have to subtract it from nominal GDP) continue to rise from its sequential Q213 low

In other words, on the 2 core factors that matter in our GIP (Growth, inflation, Policy) model:

  1. INFLATION = will be accelerating
  2. GROWTH = will be slowing

More commonly called stagflation, the common man’s wallet gets squeezed when this starts to happen. That’s not my opinion, that’s US economic history in the post Greenspan era (Bernanke and Yellen).


This is the 3rd time Hedgeye has made a big directional call that #InflationAccelerating will slow US consumption growth, with the other two being:

  1. Q1 of 2008
  2. Q1 of 2011

Yep, it’s cyclical. And the ways to measure it in real-time are manifest. But if you want to throw a little Putin on top of your inflated corn flakes this morning (Oil prices accelerating), here are moarrr of them:

  1. US Treasury 5yr breakevens (Bernanke used these until they went against his ideology) +5bps last week and +17bps YTD
  2. CRB Foodstuffs index = +21.5% YTD and Treasury Inflation Protection (TIPs) testing YTD highs
  3. Slow-Growth #YieldChasing sub-sector styles of the US stock market like Utilities +13.5% YTD

What’s really impressive about the inflation-slows-growth trade is how obvious it is at this point. With the biotech and #SocialBubble stocks (FB, TWTR, YELP, etc.) getting pounded again on Friday (Nasdaq down -0.5% on the wk to -2.4% YTD), Utilities (XLU) closed the week up another +1.9%!


Sure, if you’re long Gold (up +0.5% last week to +8.1% YTD), Bonds, or any stock that looks like a bond, you’re having a great year. As you should be. You are in the 20% of America that A) has savings to invest into #InflationAccelerating and B) doesn’t have to eat it like the common man does.


In other news, not only is Bill Gross way late in getting bullish on US Growth, but consensus bear hedge fund bets in the bond market are. Last week’s net short position (CFTC non-commercial net futures/options contracts) in the 10yr Treasury Bond ramped to -93,722 contracts. If you have courage, you’ve been long consensus being wrong on #RatesRising all year long.


Our immediate-term Global Macro Risk Ranges are now as follows:


UST 10yr Yield 2.59-2.71%


Nasdaq 3

WTIC oil 99.98-105.61

Gold 1

Corn 4.98-5.18


Best of luck out there this week,

The Era of The Common Man? - Chart of the Day

Pucks To The Head

This note was originally published at 8am on April 14, 2014 for Hedgeye subscribers.

“When you are stuck down a well, someone is bound to throw a rock on your head.”

-Chinese Proverb


So don’t get stuck down a performance well. Rocks to the head hurt. Technically, I’m on vaca with my family this week. But, since I don’t really see what I do (read and write) as a job, I do more of the reading part while I’m watching my kids cannonball one another at the pool.


The aforementioned quote comes from a fantastic Chinese/British economic #history book titled The Opium War. It was describing how English Naval Officer, Charles Elliott, felt after Lin Zexu dumped 20,000 chests of opium into the sea.


This happened in 1839 and became “one of the most celebrated moments in 19th century Chinese history” (pg 69). But it also gave birth to a major economic phase transition. The British found a new island to anchor their opium vessels. It’s called Hong Kong. Changing their position worked.


Back to the Global Macro Grind


The Russell 2000, Nasdaq, and SP500 were down -3.6%, -3.1%, and -2.6% last week to -4.5%, -4.2%, and -1.8% for 2014 YTD. The current “corrections” for the Russell, Nasdaq, and SP500 are -8.0%, -8.2%, and -4.0%. If you are levered long high-multiple growth, those are rocks to the head.


Thankfully, the feedback from our battle tested long-only customers is that they didn’t do that. Instead, they are long of inflation in inflation terms (Food, TIPs, Gold, etc.) and they are long of US #ConsumerSlowing in slow-growth-yield-chasing terms (Utilities, Bonds, etc.).


Feedback from our most astute macro hedge fund subscribers couldn’t be better. Not only can they be long inflation slowing growth, but they can be short of who is taking the brunt of all this (US consumers) in one of the deepest and most liquid markets in the world (US Equities).


Here’s the US Equity Sector Return Score for the YTD:


  1. US Consumer Discretionary Stocks (XLY) down another -3.7% last week to -6.9% YTD
  2. S&P Utilities Sector ETF (XLU) UP another +0.6% in a down tape last week to +9.8% YTD

In other words, as the social media bubbles crash (single stocks down -30-50% from their early March peaks - and we remain The Bears on names like Twitter (TWTR) and YELP), there have been plenty of places to make money, never mind “hide” from US growth beta.


In the face of the US centric bubble popping, check out last week’s top Global Macro performers:


  1. Gold up another +0.6% to +9.6% YTD
  2. Emerging Market Equities (MSCI Index) +1.3% to +1.3% YTD
  3. Emerging Markets LATAM (MSCI) +2.2% to +2.9% YTD

Emerging what?


Yep, lots of our Global Macro value buyers were simply waiting for the rockstar of all Emerging Market Equity catalysts to re-emerge – a Down Dollar. Last week, the US Dollar Index was down another -1.2% to re-test her YTD lows; in kind, Emerging Market Equities hit YTD highs.


I know, so easy a Mucker can do it.


Back to who gets pulverized by an un-elected US Policy To Inflate (courtesy of the Federal Reserve), don’t forget that there are winners who emerge versus US #ConsumerSlowing losers à the countries who get the purchasing power of their people (stronger currencies) back.


To a Keynesian central planner, all of this sounds so 16th century solar system, I am sure. But  reality is that reality is priced in local currency terms – and YTD, for the US consumer at least, reality bites.


Here’s how some commodities (priced in Burning Bucks) did last week:


  1. Coffee up another +8.8% to +76.8% YTD
  2. Natural Gas up another +4.1% to +12.8% YTD
  3. Oil (WTIC) up +2.6% last week to +5.9 YTD

Sure, if you back all that out – and blame the weather (which last I checked is fantabulous)… there is no inflation.


But there is some serious YTD absolute and relative return performance!


Which, at the end of the day is what we are all after, is it not? Why would you pay 20x revenues for anything when 2 of the biggest Macro Risk Factors that matter to any economy (GROWTH and INFLATION) are going the wrong way?


Remember, it’s not about absolutes. It’s about rate of change, and:


  1. US inflation is accelerating
  2. US growth is slowing

Our competition can blame YTD lows in the 10yr bond yield (2.63% = down -39bps YTD) on anything but the most obvious. They can blame me, the weather – or whatever… but they’re stuck in a proverbial well of YTD macro market scores that disagree.


And unless they want to keep taking pucks to the head from a bunch of hockey players, they better find a new narrative come summer time…


Our immediate-term Global Macro Risk Ranges are now:


UST 10yr Yield 2.60-2.72%

SPX 1786-1832

Nasdaq 3953-4158

VIX 14.52-17.99

USD 79.11-80.01

WTIC Oil 101.73-104.99

Gold 1300-1329


Best of luck out there this week,
