Caesars Entertainment Stock
A few weeks ago, Barry Jonas, a Truist analyst, repeated his Buy rating on Caesars stock, raising his price target from $85 to $92. That im
plies a potential upside of about 15% from current levels.
However, Jonas thinks that fourth-quarter gambling industry results could be soft due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. On the other hand, the distribution of the vaccine could release the pent-up demand for in-person social experiences and engagement.
Overall, the consensus among analysts is that, based on 7 Buys and 3 Holds, Caesars is a Moderate Buy. Over the next 12 months, the average price target of $85 suggests an upside potential of around 7%.
TipRanks Smart Score ranks Caesars a 2 out of 10, indicating that it has underperformed historically on the market.
