Penn National Gaming: The Real Value Is In Its Casinos (NASDAQ:PENN)

Penn's stock price has declined from $46.97 on January 9th to $36.55 today. The decline is due to general jitters, inflation, Fed nerves, the Ukraine war, gas prices and the perception that pandemic stimulus checks inflated gaming at most of the nation's regional casinos. Stimulus checks going to the older demographics did not boost revenue for casinos in general. The market is bearish on consumer discretionary stocks. However, where Penn is concerned, much of dip has come out of profit taking. In 2021, Penn's share price reached $115. It's possible that the stock will reach $100 in early 2021.

Another Push For Casino Smoking Ban Resurrected By Lawmaker

State Rep. Dan Frankel and Sen. Jay Costa want to change the law to ban casino smoking. The 2008 law bans smoking in restaurants and other public spaces, but it allows casinos to allow smoking on up to 50% of the gaming floor. Parx Casino, the state's largest, requires smokers to go outside to light up. Mount Airy Casino Resort has also initiated its own ban. The state revenue figures suggest that the ban does not harm the casinos. It is a health issue for non-smokers. They prefer to be in venues where they don't have to deal with cigarettes nearby.
