Schaeffer’s Investment Research Says MGM’s Stock Is Poised for Near-Term Rebound

On the other hand, Schaeffer’s Investment Research, the leading privately held publisher of stock and options trading recommendations with headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, predicted a short-term rebound for MGM. “Specifically, MGM is trading within one standard deviation of its 126-day moving average. According to data from Schaeffer’s Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White, six similar signals occurred over the past three years, and the stock finished higher 67% of the time, with an average 4.4% one-month gain,” explained the company. Additionally, Schaeffer’s added: “From its current perch, a comparable move would put MGM Resorts stock at nearly $45 per share.”

The company basically explained that despite fluctuations, some 67% of the time, MGM’s stocks finished trading higher. On average, the stocks have seen a 4.4% one-month gain. This otherwise means that the estimated price target for MGM’s stock is approximately $45.00 per share, according to Schaeffer’s.

On Monday, MGM confirmed it filed a Complaint for Declaratory and Injunctive Relief against the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and its chair, Lina Khan, over the FTC’s Civil Investigative Demand (CID) request for data regarding a cyberattack dating back to September. In its lawsuit, MGM claimed its Fifth Amendment rights were violated considering the personal involvement of FTC’s chair in the case, her refusal to recuse herself and the Commission’s refusal to disqualify her.
