  • He was joined by the company CEO, who also bought 10,000 shares on the same day. The cost of that buy came to about $714,000. These two buys mark the first time insiders have added shares since late 2019.

    Otherwise, company insiders have been somewhat regular and steady sellers of shares over the past three years. All told, company insiders own about 4.5 percent of shares.

    The casino operator has shed about a quarter of its value in the past year. The company has lost money in three of the last four quarters, although in the most recent quarter the company did make a modest profit and trades for about 17 times earnings.

    Action to take: Casinos are still operating below their pandemic levels, so there’s more room to grow. And the space is looking to consolidate right now, which could benefit Caesars as one of the smaller players. At present, shares don’t pay a dividend, but could in the future.
