Wynn Resorts (WYNN), a global casino company yesterday reported their fourth quarter 2016 financial results.

Wynn reported fourth quarter revenues of $1.3 billion which beat analyst expectations of $1.25 billion.


Wynn Resorts  Comments

“During the earnings conference call, Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn said the Wynn Palace occupancy is running ahead of company projections and achieving “good mass market activity” and attracting the higher-end customer too. Business at Wynn Palace is picking up after a slow start at the $4 billion casino-resort complex that had weighed on the company’s stock price last fall. Wynn said he remains bullish on the Macau market’s outlook. “The long-term thrust of China is inexorable and undeniable — and that’s why we built what we built and we’re going to build more in the future.”  CNBC


WYNN Technical Analysis

Wynn Resorts

WYNN opened trading yesterday at $96.00 which was down from the previous day’s trading close of $96.42. WYNN closed trading yesterday at $95.50 and spiked up after market to $102.01, equivalent to a 7% increase from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see that the last time WYNN traded above these levels we have to go back to December 6th, 2016 when it traded at  $102.18.

Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike up WYNN had been in an overall downward trend dating back to September 16th, 2016 when it traded at $108.57. WYNN has a float of 79.14 million shares and traded 1.58 times the normal daily trading volume on Thursday. For trading purposes, I would like to see WYNN open trading on Friday above $100 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.50 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up. Check out these links for more information on Warrior Trading and the penny stock trading strategies we implement in their chat room!
