Casino operator Penn National Gaming’s shares got downgraded to sell from hold, at Deutsche Bank.
Although Deutsche lifted its price target (citing "the margin profiles of regional gaming operators will be stronger post the pandemic." ) on Penn National to $22 a share from $12, the new target still represents an almost -40% potential downside from the stock's Friday closing price.
The investment bank also mentioned that Penn will face a challenge when it comes to improving its margins over its peers , since "prior margin disciplines and higher-than-peer blended gaming taxes” have compelled Penn, over time, to be “leaner than most", according to the bank.
