Bear of the Day

Red Rock Resorts (RRR - Free Report) has only reported one quarter. It is now a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) and is the Bear of the Day. Let's take a look at why this is the case.

Description

Red Rock Resorts operates gaming, hotel, and casino properties. It operates 21 casino and entertainment properties primarily located in Las Vegas. The company was formerly known as Station Casinos Corp. and changed its name to Red Rock Resorts, Inc. in January 2016.

Recent Earnings

RRR missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.40 by $0.16 for a negative earnings surprise of 40%. Revenue came in at $351M while the Zacks Consensus Estimate was looking for $352M.

Estimates

The Zacks Consensus Estimate has been falling over the last few months. The FY16 estimate stood at $1.58 in July and then fell to $1.45 in August. The estimate currently states at $1.31.

Next year has also seen a move lower in estimates with the 2017 Zacks Consensus Estimate moving from $1.94 to $1.79 over the same time period.

The decline in estimates is the main reason this is a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) and the Bear of the Day.

Chart

Zacks has developed a chart that helps investors see how earnings estimates have impacted the price of the stock over the last several years. We call this chart the price and consensus chart, and each color coded lines represents analyst estimates over a designated year. As estimates increase, the stock tends to follow. The Zacks Rank is impacted by earnings estimate increases, beats and incorporates the idea of analyst agreement and magnitude. As a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) we see that estimates are moving higher.
