Investor fears surrounding the temporary shutdown of Atlantic City casinos may be creating a nice opportunity to gamble on Trump Entertainment ( TRMP). The stock dropped nearly 4% Wednesday on worries of a profit hit, since each of Trump's three casinos is located in the city. Atlantic City casinos were forced to close Wednesday at 8 a.m. as part of an impasse on the approval of a new government budget in New Jersey. The closure is said to be costing casino operators more than $16 million of profit per day, and Trump is losing a penny of earnings per share a day during the shutdown, by one estimate. However, for the long term, Trump's casinos may be best poised to capitalize on the rebirth of Atlantic City as a hip East Coast version of Las Vegas, some industry watchers say. "If you want to get into Atlantic City, Trump is the best way to get into a market that is well in demand. A lot of casino operators are saying Atlantic City is the best market to be in," says Eric Green, a portfolio manager with Penn Capital Management, which owns Trump shares. He believes that the stock's recent pullback provides an attractive entry point for investors. The knock on Trump is that the company has underinvested in its properties for years because of a large debt load. Last year, Trump exited bankruptcy and secured a reorganization plan that lowered its overall debt load from $1.8 billion to $1.4 billion at the end of its most recent quarter. The plan's $500 million line of credit and cash from a recent Indiana casino sale are helping Trump pay for the current $110 million renovation of its three properties --- the Taj Mahal, Trump Marina and Trump Plaza. This summer, Trump will break ground on a new $250 million hotel tower at the Taj Mahal.
