#Billionaires bet on this casino operator #MeenaKrishnamsetty @marketwatch @insidermonkey @SeekingAlpha #bennyquetell @resilient_ent #resilientmediaentertainment


Analysts across Wall St. are recommending shares of MGM Resorts International MGM +0.42% , the 16-property — and two-joint-venture — casino/hotel operator. For 1Q 2012, MGM missed analysts' estimates by a wide margin, posting a loss of $0.44 vs. a mean estimated loss of $0.16. One would think such a wide miss would inspire at least one analyst to downgrade the company. No such analyst exists. So, we decided to do our own digging to find out why someone might be interested in the stock.

Average investors poised to bite into #hedgefunds: survey #SveaHerbstBayliss @Reuters @resilient_ent


The rich may not be so different after all. After decades of investing in exclusive hedge funds, America's super rich are getting company as alternative investments are joining the investment management mainstream, a report from McKinsey & Co released to clients in July showed. "The new twist is driven by three major trends," said Kurt MacAlpine, an associate principal at McKinsey, noting that changes in how the products are structured, financial advisers' new tastes for them and changes in how they are accounted for in portfolios are all fueling demand.

#Cashet Credit Card Targets #Indie #TV, #Film #Productions #ToddCunningham @TheWrap @resilient_ent


Cashet Cards, a new credit card targeting independent film and TV productions hit the market Thursday, offering 1 percent cash back on purchases, vendor discounts and custom cost controls. “We’ll give credit to the production,” Paul Rogers, chief operating officer of Cashet told TheWrap.

#Billionaire #StanleyDruckenmiller's Top 5 Dividend Picks @Dividendinvestr @seekingalpha @resilient_ent #bennyquetell #resilientmediaentertainment



Stanley Druckenmiller is one of the most famous hedge fund managers. He ran Duquesne Capital, a macro hedge fund that he founded in 1981. Druckenmiller shut down his fund in August 2010 because he felt increasingly frustrated with an inability to deliver consistently high returns to his clients. His funds returned about 30% net of fees since 1986. While Druckenmiller was returning less than 30% in 2008 and 2009 (actually, 11% and 10%, respectively), he still outperformed most hedge funds. At the time of closing, Duquesne Capital managed $12 billion in assets.

Amidst all that vulnerability likes some compelling investments that venture capitalists are, naturally, taking advantage of.
