MIght be short-able if it goes up to $9.00 it's 60 day ceiling.....top fool TSIF likes ( hates ) it and he wrote a great thesis ( hope TMF awards his review ); but this one smells of a hedge fund hi-flyer....read this: "Interactive segment offers play-for-fun social games on Facebook, GooglePlay for Android devices, Apple's iOS platform, Kindle platform and Microsoft Windows 8. Its brands include MONOPOLY, GREASE, Jackpot Party Progressive, AMC-THE WALKING DEAD, HARLEY-DAVIDSON and LOTERIA, among others."

When my kids had a lemonade stand, they were quite happy one day with the amount the sales had increased. They were pocketing money right and left. Of course dropping your price and dressing up your stand can get more customers, tying the pet goat to the nearby tree and putting a bag of grain out for the neighbor kids to feed it can also help, (plus the weather was a little warmer).

Adding more sugar, and upgrading the cups, etc...and more sells. Of course the grocery bill the parents paid doubled, but hey the kids were happy. They really increased revenue which is all that counts....right!!???

====================
Scientific Games is gaming invesgtors. Wouldn't be worth the $6.34 it started with based on the news that it's loss was less than predicted.....certainly not worth any run-up on the news from it's already lofty valuation.....but if the ramp up starts, the shorts cover, the speculators enter, the day traders come to visit, and the shorts who had conviction re-upp at a higher level and get forced out again....

Looking at the books, I don't see how this company is surviving. Clearly anyone buying doesn't care about fundamentals on this one. $8B in debt, negative book value of over $11 per share or $6.9BILLION in negative equity!! Revenue was up $700M from 2013 to 2014, but loses went from $30M to $234M that year...what a growth story....and it continues into 2015 at over $100M a QUARTER in losses. $664M a year in interest payments.

Buy their lottery tickets, but don't buy their stock...your chances are much better with lottery tickets.

(9,000 employees.....) Ouch!

Target: Sometimes reality takes awhile, the sugar is sweet, but the sour taste will kick in when the sugar runs out....
($6 maybe, then wash/repeat???)

Because municipalities NEED cash all around, if Maryland can pass slots, they can pass just about anywhere. Someone needs to provide them so I just went green on all the companies related to them.

Nice business model with few competitors. International growth will fuel double digit free cash flow growth for years to come.

Short Squeeze play if the Nov 1st earnings beat estimates. Could go to 60s according to analysts. Be careful and put stop lost.

Would have preferred to start this pick in early November, when the price was at $27+. I'm not much for gambling personally, but it's an industry that's not going away and their standing in the industry is right up there at the top. Sound fundamentals.
