What are analysts saying about Pinnacle Entertainment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pinnacle Entertainment stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pinnacle Entertainment is a diversified gaming company that owns and operates casinos in Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada and Argentina and is pursuing the development of a hotel and casino resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The Company also receives lease income from two card club casinos, both in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. " (5/16/2017)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "PNK continues to fire on all cylinders. The company delivered another EBITDAR beat, turning a 2% same-store revenue increase into a 10% EBITDAR improvement. 4Q16 top-line trends were encouraging across all major metrics, as coin in and table drop increased by low-single digits; unrated play grew 3% y/y; and spend per trip was up mid-single digits y/y. The EBITDAR margin story remains equally as encouraging, reflecting ongoing commitments to refining market expenditures and further refining operating costs throughout the organization. Lastly, management continues to thoughtfully deploy excess capital to the greatest benefit of its shareholders, voluntarily repaying $42M of debt since the closure of the GLPI transaction and repurchasing $70M (~10%) of its shares outstanding at an average price well below current trading levels' All told, though we are growing increasingly attracted to PNK's improved post-spin leverage profile, healthy FY17E FCF yield, and steady margin improvement, we would like to get a better feel for management's longer-term capital allocation priorities and/or see a healthier regional gaming top-line growth trends emerge, prior to becoming more constructive on the shares."
