Caesars Entertainment Sinking on Regional Gaming Struggles

Caesars Entertainment's (NASDAQ: CZR  ) financial results continue to deteriorate along with the regional gaming market in the U.S. Revenue fell 1.9% in the first quarter and losses ballooned to $367 million. 

Regional gaming continued to struggle, highlighted by an 81% drop in Atlantic Coast EBITDA. With $21 billion in debt hanging over it and uncertainty over whether the operating company can even stay solvent, this is a stock investors should be very wary of. 

Caesars Acquisition Company (NASDAQ: CACQ  ) may be a better bet, but without online gaming, there's limited upside there as well. 

In the video below, gaming specialist Travis Hoium gives his thoughts on the recent results.
