When The Market Tide Is Rising All Ships Move Higher
It is true that when the market tide is rising, all ships move higher. What is not true is that all stocks within a group are worth your investment in such conditions. That’s why it pays to follow the money and see where it goes. Not because we want to follow the leader but because so many other traders do and when it comes to the market you want to be where the money is. You still want to be choosy but, in nearly all cases, good stocks in a good market that are loved by their customers and investors outperform all others. When it comes to markets, the online gaming market is one of the hottest today and one driven by pandemic-induced stay-at-home lifestyles and increasing levels of legalization. New Jersey is one of the most visible to benefit from legalization trends having just reported a 50% YOY increase in monthly revenue driven by a 90% increase in online gaming.

Rush Street Interactive, Inc Winds Up For Another Run
Shares of Rush Street Interactive (NYSE: RSI) began a reversal earlier this month when the company reported earnings. The company beat top and bottom-line estimates and raised guidance on strengthening trends within the iGaming industry. Among them are growing chances that New York will legalize online gambling which is why Rush Streets’ early acquisition of licensing is so important. All the company needs now is the go-ahead and it can begin operations in New York state.
In Oppenheimer’s view, the stock is a buy even without New York in the picture. According to them is that Rush Street’s differentiators and experience are driving customer growth and retention and that is a good thing. Now, with share prices consolidating above the short-term moving average, we see this stock moving up to retest resistance at the all-time high before breaking out and moving into the upper $30-range.
