The Philippines Jump Into Gaming

The first of four major resorts has opened in The Philippines, and it'll be an important indicator of how gaming can grow outside of Singapore and Macau. Japan, Korea, China, and others are looking at expanding gaming, and this will be a look at whether they'll dilute other gaming markets. 

Alison Southwick sat down with analyst Travis Hoium to see how Melco Crown (NASDAQ: MPEL  ) will be affected (as its resort is built in The Philippines) as well as the impact on Asian rivals. 

Melco Crown is often a forgotten company in gaming, but it has tremendous upside from Studio City and its partnership in the Philippines, which could more than double the company's revenue base. This being a more speculative investment, is it worth the risk for smaller investors?

    The only trouble with owning companies like Melco Crown is you have to pay an annual fee to own Chinese companies and they don't pay a dividend.

    You're better to stick with American owned companies such as LVS, WYNN and MGM
