Rank Group tumbles on outlook

Let's take a look at Rank Group, the company which owns Mecca and also the Grosvenor Casinos.

It has come through with an updated report this morning, but so far as shares are concerned, they're on the way down because investors are focused in on the negativity the company is suggesting is going to dominate the outlook from where we go.

Share price chart

Let's take a look at the share price chart, because you can see clearly that since the highs that we had, the recent highs we had back in May 2021, there has been this slide in the share price and it's currently day trading down by a margin of 10.5% today, down to $0.58.

The company has painted a bleak picture for its immediate future, despite reporting what was a small rise in the net gaming revenue in the first quarter (Q1).

But this has been way overshadowed by the expectations that the company is going to continue to see the sort of pressure we've seen building pre-COVID. We had this stock all the way up at £3.28. It's now trading at $0.58 a share.

The company says it's seeing big pressures on consumer spending this year with inflation likely to remain high for some time to come, and as a result of that, business at its Grosvenor casinos and Mecca chain businesses will likely continue to be pressured throughout the foreseeable future. Certainly well into 2023 according to the statement, the company will continue to see pressure building for Rank Group, down on the trading day today so far.

    • Gold price and natural gas price consolidate, but WTI comes under fresh pressure It is a mixed start to the month for commodity prices; gold and natural gas are relatively quiet, while oil prices have fallen after an OPEC production cut failed to meet expectations. Source: Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 01 December 2023 12:22 Gold price rally stalls The price seems to have topped out for now, though a short-term bearish view would likely need a close back below $2000 to suggest another test of rising support. On the upside, the $2060 level remains as the key area to watch in the short-term, along with the $2075/$2080 area that has marked gold’s highs since 2020.

Instead, Thursday saw the price push briefly above the 200-day simple moving average (SMA), before dropping back again. This now means we wait to see if recent support around $72 could be tested, with a move below this creating a lower low. Source: ProRealTime Natural Gas holds above 200-day MA Here the price has managed to stabilise around the 200-day SMA, and a close back above 2900 might suggest a test of recent trendline resistance. If the price can claw its way back above 3000, buyers might emerge once again. Alternately, 2640 and 2540 become the next short-term targets to the downside. Source: ProRealTime
    • DCA is my long term investment strategy. As for copy trading, i was using Bybit and Bitget initially but switched completely to the latter cex cos it gives me more win rates. Its prolly because they have more elite traders than the former yah.
    • I would say Pele remains the undisputable Greatest Of All Time yah.
