The Biggest Reasons to Sell Melco Crown

Melco Crown (NASDAQ: MPEL  ) has been one of the hottest stocks in gaming, but investors always need to consider what the risks are in a company. A sky-high valuation indicates that investors are pricing in a lot of growth for the company, so if new resorts don't perform as expected, investors could be in for a world of hurt. Kristen Coia sat down with gaming analyst Travis Hoium to discuss what Melco Crown's biggest risks are. 

Melco Crown is more of a speculative investment in gaming, so is it worth the risk for smaller investors?

    Still no gaming license at Studio City, either.

    The original Studio City partnership didn't secure one, and although Lawrence Ho has maintained that they will get one, there's been no affirmation of that from the SAR to my knowledge.

    Anyone who takes Mr. Ho's word for it need only look at the past for both timing and reliability of such prognostications. Steve Wynn maintained that his land grant on Cotai was "imminent"... a full year before it was actually granted. Similarly, Sands was assured of an eventual grant on cotai sites 7 and 8 by Edmund Ho... only to have it revoked on a timing technicality by his successor, Fernando Chui.
