Bada Bing, Bada Boom! Hedgeye's Todd Jordan Scores Big on Boyd Gaming | $BYD - 10 23 2015 byd

 

In Q3, BYD delivered on the tenets of the long thesis we laid out in our 9/25 conference call/presentation - growth in Las Vegas and AC, stabilizing regional gaming trends, and operational improvements combined to produce a big beat and higher Q4 guidance.

 

More good news: it looks sustainable.

 

We remain positive on BYD as earnings visibility continues to improve and the locals Las Vegas market (remains well below peak) and Borgata could provide upside. Moreover, while BYD is making progress operationally, there is still significant room for higher productivity and margins across the portfolio.
