Guru Investment Theses on Pinnacle Entertainment Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Pinnacle Entertainment Inc - Mar 24, 2015

Shares of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (PNK), a regional casino company, declined in the fourth quarter after the company announced it would start the process of converting to a REIT and spinning off its real estate assets. Investors grew cautious ahead of a proposed equity offering that Pinnacle is planning for mid-2015 to help reduce its debt. The Fund exited its position in Pinnacle. (David Baron)

Baron Funds Comments on Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. - Nov 25, 2013

Shares of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (PNK), a regional casino company, increased 27.4% in the third quarter as the company completed its acquisition of Ameristar Casinos and entered into agreements to sell its St. Louis and Lake Charles properties. Now completed, we think the combined company can generate higher cash flow, which it can use to pay down debt and increase value for equity holders. We believe the $40 million of anticipated synergies is a conservative estimate. (David Baron)

Baron Funds Comments on Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. - Aug 05, 2013

We increased our position in Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (PNK) in the quarter, as we remain excited by the company's prospective closing of its Ameristar acquisition. We believe the company will do what is necessary to receive FTC approval and close this transaction. We think the combined company should generate significant revenue and cost synergies that we think are not currently reflected in its stock price. These synergies combined with the company's current expansion projects of its own should generate significant cash flow growth in the years ahead. Management has indicated it will use this cash to quickly pay down debt and add significant value for shareholders. (David Baron)
