In the said letter, Alta Fox Capital highlighted a few stocks and Full House Resorts Inc (NASDAQ:FLL) is one of them. Full House Resorts is a casino developer and operator based in Nevada. Year-to-date, Full House Resorts Inc (NASDAQ:FLL) stock lost 50.2% and on June 22nd it had a closing price of $1.64. Here is what Alta Fox Capital said:
“We also realized losses on Full House Resorts (FLL), a small regional casino special situation. We originally invested on the premise that FLL was an inexpensive, underfollowed opportunity to capitalize on online sports betting growth given license arrangements they made with other operators. However, COVID-19 invalidated this thesis by not only causing FLL to close all of their casinos, but also temporarily shutting down all live sports. While this was a scenario we never contemplated when we underwrote the thesis, the reality of the situation required us to take the loss and reallocate to more attractive opportunities.”
In Q1 2020, the number of bullish hedge fund positions on Full House Resorts Inc (NASDAQ:FLL) stock decreased by about 33% from the previous quarter (see the chart here), so a number of other hedge fund managers seem to agree with Full House Resorts downside potential.
