We Remain Bullish Online Gambling (Despite Negative Headlines)
Wild Casino

Online gaming stocks got hit with a triple whammy of negative headlines yesterday:

  1. NCAA pushing for an all-out ban on player prob bets.
  2. Senator Blumenthal pushing for operators to not target problem gamblers (we aren’t convinced they presently do).
  3. NJ proposing a tax hike on Online Sports Betting (OSB) and iCasino.

“Obviously there was a negative reaction yesterday in the stocks, but I don’t see that this is going to be a major factor,” said Gaming, Lodging, and Leisure (GLL) analyst Sean Jenkins this morning on The Call @ Hedgeye relating to the prop betting fiasco.

Watch the full clip, where Jenkins lays out his reasoning for our GLL team’s continued confidence in OSB stocks.
