2016-08-30 SELL Eric Nuttall

There was a taint on this due to the previous CEO who resigned. You are now left with a business where they are they market leader in a declining business (poker), but are going to be offsetting that. This has so much animosity that it would be a Sell. (See Top Picks.)

2016-08-19 COMMENT Jason Del Vicario

This no longer meets his criteria. Gaming stocks make him nervous because they operate in a space that is heavily regulated which he has little control over.

(Market Call Minute.) With a management shakeup and what is going on with the stock, it’s a little too risky.

2016-08-11 BUY Ross Healy

He likes the stock.  It is on his buy list.  The valuation is cheap.  They should keep on generating new numbers.  They were accepted by New Jersey so it has thrown the rest of the US open for the regulatory scrutiny process for online gaming. Management is still talking about buying the stock in, so hopefully the earnings will come through their business strategy, or management will Buy the stock in at BV, dirt cheap.

(Market Call Minute.) This is going through a strategic review process. He would be cautious. He has some exposure through some preferred securities.

2016-06-23 BUY on WEAKNESS Brian Acker, CA

There is huge volatility in this. His model price is $22.32, a 15% upside from the current price. He would love to get this on a pullback to $16.

2016-06-06 COMMENT Jim Huang

Did a reverse takeover of one of the biggest online gaming companies. With that they took on some baggage of legal troubles of the past company. There were also some headline issues of insider trading allegations by the Québec financial authorities. The business has good value. He would be a little leery until you see that management is focused and has its attention on running the company, rather than fighting other things. He is on the fence on this, but is a little concerned.

2016-03-03 TOP PICK Ross Healy

The stock is cheap.  There appears to be a breakthrough in California in terms of Internet gambling.  At worse we may get a takeover bid for the company.  The $21 takeout value is about book value.  It is a decent buy right now no matter what.

2016-03-03 BUY on WEAKNESS Ryan Modesto

Online gambling. CEO has indicated he wants to take the company private at $21. A lot of people are looking at the $21 private offering as a ceiling, but he actually thinks it is a floor. Any time this company is trading below $21, it is time to consider adding to it.

2016-02-23 COMMENT Eric Nuttall

There are rumours that a bid will be coming at $21, and he thinks this will go through. Any profits you have, he would be moving into Intertain (IT-T) or NYX (NYX-X) or on this, hoping that the $21 bid is not enough and will get the ball rolling for the board to go shop the company. There are way better names than this.

2016-02-08 COMMENT Jerome Hass

Has been in the news recently because management talked about taking the company private at $21 cash. He had been short this for most of last year. (A hedge for a long position in another online gaming company.) Just covered his Short position. Has always been skeptical of management and the difficulty they are going to have in getting into the US market. If this doesn’t go private, he might put his Short position back on.

2015-12-23 COMMENT Jason Donville

Generally doesn’t like this space. It has to do with the backdrop and the lack of transparency. There is a lot of shadowy stuff going on with all of these companies, and things are changing all the time. He is just not interested in playing in this space anymore.

2015-12-09 WATCH Bruce Campbell (2)

Now that they have had a poor quarter, what you are going to need is for them to have a strong quarter. A lot of people bought the stock at higher prices after the Poker Stars acquisition; and is probably being hit with tax loss selling. You need to see is some sort of stability with the stock price after the tax loss selling. The 2nd thing will be when they come out with their next set of quarterly results, and if numbers have improved and are moving back in the right direction. At that point, you will probably start to see the share price returning back to a growth profile. An interesting business with a huge market out there. They are trying to transition their business from straight poker into more casino and sports book, and it is going to be a challenge over the next few years as to how they maintain the poker business, especially with the regulatory environment, and at the same time transition into that casino and sports book business. Wait and see the numbers, and if they look to be ramping up again, that will probably be a good entry point.
