MGM Resorts was another victim of the Covid19 pandemic and the lockdown (like the most casino stocks). And with its most important areas like Las Vegas, Macao, etc., casinos seem now to have a long way to to reach the profit levels before the pandemic. But since the positive news from Pfizer and Germany’s Biontech, casino stocks are beginning to recover. Also, The American Gaming Association points out in its Commercial Gaming Revenue Tracker for Q3 2020, that the gambling industry is recovering better than assumed. At least, the sports betting and iGaming are chipping in to mitigate the losses from table gambling. Maybe this recovery phase ist just a brief one as new lockdowns are possible again. But for option traders, there opens an short term opportunity for an option trade on MGM.
