JP Morgan has added three startups to its list of stocks to invest in this July. The bank’s analysts have spotted new companies recommending overweight and recommending for growth strategies. And his focus is especially in relation to tourism in Las Vegas.
The new finds are gaming and hotel firms – with a great position in Las Vegas – Boyd Gaming and MGM Resorts International, who recommend overweighting, while State Street is given short-term buying advice. In return, they removed Bank of America, Devon Energy, MGM Growth Properties, Vivint Smart Home, and Wynn Resorts from their recommendation list.
In Boyd’s case, JP Morgan sees increased demand in the short term that it expects to spread, given the context of “healthy consumers” and “the return of the over-55 demographic” after pandemic fears subside, he said. analyst Joseph Greff. He also hopes that operational adjustments and a good advertising campaign after the worst of the pandemic is over will increase business margins and the attractiveness of Las Vegas.
The recovery of tourism towards the ‘city of vice’ also reactivates the situation of MGM. “Every week it continues to grow in terms of revenue and margin improvement, and [casinos] are a segment that can drive positive revisions to estimates,” Greff said. His recommendation is that the firm increase its position in online gaming and sports betting, which it manages with its subsidiary BetMGM, and considers that the majority of analysts underestimate the opportunity in this segment.
Analyst Vivek Juneja added State Street to the list, saying it would benefit from technical adjustments in short-term interest rates and strong equity markets.
JP Morgan reiterated its optimism about US Bancorp, given that the rebound in consumer spending and the return to travel should increase its revenues in the medium term. This firm receives most of its benefits from the costs of the credit cards it issues and agreements with airlines and restaurants.
