Analyst Update: Financial Results and Partnerships
Reviewed by: Rohit Tuli, CFA®
The U.S. stocks fell on Wednesday, weighed down by sharp decline in the energy stocks following further decline in the oil prices. Investors were also seen fleeing to the U.S. government bonds on Wednesday, sending the yield on 10-year bonds to their lowest level since May 2013, after Federal Reserve said that it will remain "patient" while deciding when to raise the interest rates as inflation remained below forecasts. The U.S. Fed's statement came after first policy-setting meeting of the year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 1.13% to close at 17,191.37, the S&P 500 lost 1.35% to close at 2,002.16, and the Nasdaq Composite declined 0.93% to end at 4,637.99. Meanwhile, European markets witnessed a choppy session on Wednesday as major indexes came under pressure amid continued slump in Greek stocks. In Asia, markets ended on a mixed note as investors remained cautious following weak cues from the overseas markets on the back of disappointing U.S. earnings and durable-goods orders data.
Monarch Casino & Resort, Inc. (Monarch) announced its Q3 2014 financial results. Net revenue of $48.6 million declined 0.8% YoY, as lower casino revenue at Monarch Black Hawk and at Atlantis, drove a 1.4% decline in total casino revenue.
