Boyd Gaming Corporation (BYD): Today's Featured Leisure Loser

The leisure industry closed the day up 1.7%. Kona Grill Inc ( KONA), Granite City Food & Brewery ( GCFB), Dover Motorsports Inc ( DVD), and Great Wolf Resorts Inc ( WOLF) were all decliners today within the leisure industry with Boyd Gaming Corporation ( BYD) being today's featured leisure loser. Boyd Gaming Corporation fell 12 cents (-1.8%) to $6.45 on average volume. Throughout the day, 2.3 million shares of Boyd Gaming Corporation exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.3 million shares.

Boyd Gaming Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, operates as a multi-jurisdictional gaming company in the United States. Boyd Gaming Corporation has a market cap of $566 million and is part of the services sector. Shares are down 38% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Boyd Gaming as a hold. Among the primary strengths of the company is its expanding profit margins over time. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, generally poor debt management and disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, Panera Bread Company Inc ( PNRA), China Lodging Group ( HTHT), J. Alexander's Corporation ( JAX), and International ( CTRP) were all gainers within the leisure industry with Las Vegas Sands ( LVS) being today's featured leisure industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the leisure industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Leisure&Entert ( PEJ) while those bearish on the leisure industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Services ( SCC).
