Star Entertainment – Switches to Buy Conditions

The Star Entertainment Group is now under Algo Engine buy conditions following a recent high low formation at $4.55.

We’re attracted to the longer-term fundamentals for Star but have been reluctant to hold the position whilst the stock was under sell conditions. The recent break higher in price and the shift to Algo buy conditions, means we’ve added Star back into our model portfolio.

The February earnings result will be a key catalyst, where the market will be looking for earnings growth beyond just cost control.



Buy Crown Resorts and Star Entertainment. 

Crown Resorts & Star Entertainment report earnings on the 20th and 21st of February, (respectively).

Both companies’ share price have been under pressure over the past 6 months, which has been a surprise given the strength in VIP gaming revenue that was evident in the last reports.

We feel again, the market has been too negative coming into the upcoming earnings. We expect to see positive upside surprises, relative to current market expectations.

Crown is under Algo Engine buy conditions, therefore, we recommend buying the stock.

SGR is under sell conditions, however, we feel the stock is oversold and suggest buying call options. Buying call options gives you limited risk on the downside and unlimited gains on the upside.

Star & Crown – Trading Update

Crown’s trading update was weaker than expected as main gaming floor revenue was down 0.6%.

Non-gaming revenue growth was 3.5%, while VIP turnover growth was up 13%.

Star Entertainment showed domestic revenue growth of +6.7% but VIP growth disappointed with it coming in flat on the prior period.

Crown looks like good “value” at $12 and is supported by a current ALGO Engine buy signal.

Aristocrat (ALL:ASX) is also looking well supported near the $26 range.


Crown – Back In The Buy Zone

We currently hold Crown Resorts in our ASX top 100 model portfolio, following a Algo Engine buy signal back in February at $12.50.

The stock has recently retraced from the $14.59 high made on the 10th August.

We now feel the sub-$13.50 level  provides an opportunity to accumulate Crown shares at a fair valuation.

NOTE: Star Entertainment is also back in the buy zone between $5.13 – $5.30
