Is a trend appearing amongst casino and entertainment stocks?
Over the weekend full year results for Echo Entertainment Group (EGP), Tatts Group (TTS) and Crown Limited (CWN) flowed through Skaffold. Echo’s Skaffold Score improved from B3 (based on the company’s interim results) to B2. B2 is one of Skaffold’s preferred scores. Tatts Group (TTS) rose from C4 to B3 and Crown’s improving business performance lifted its Skaffold Score from A4 to A3.
TTS and EGP are trading at premiums of more than 60% to Skaffold’s 2014 intrinsic value estimates. CWN is trading at a 40% premium. Whilst the intrinsic value of all three businesses is forecast to rise at an impressive rate over the next two years, looking at the Skaffold Line chart of each stock it appears the market has already factored in this future growth.

The story of a company, regardless of whether the business is owned by one shareholder or many – its history of earnings, dividends, equity, debt, cash flow and capital growth – is told the same way.
Once you understand the business, its economics and future growth prospects, its imperative to estimate its value to determine an appropriate price to pay for its shares.
Ideally you want to buy shares when some of the existing shareholders are willing to sell them to you for much less than they are worth, and sell shares when other members of the investing public are happy to pay you much more than their underlying value.
