Hedge Funds Have This To Say About These Newly-Upgraded Stocks

We will now move on to International Game Technology PLC (NYSE:IGT), a company that offers a range of services and technology products across lotteries, machine gaming, sports betting, and interactive gaming markets. Telsey Advisory Group upgraded IGT’s stock to ‘Outperform’ from ‘Market Perform’, pointing out the company’s strong cash flow as one of the factors behind the upgrade. Just a few days ago, International Game Technology’s subsidiary, GTECH Corporation, signed a four-year extension agreement with the Nebraska Lottery, under which GTECH is set to supply additional lottery equipment. This freshly-sealed deal will surely enhance the revenue stream generated from its long-term customer.
