Penn National Gaming (PENN) announced that at separate meetings today, the Company received approvals from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission and the Texas Racing Commission in connection with its pending acquisition of Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK), subject to customary conditions.

Supreme Court ruling on sports betting positive for regionals, game tech, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Shaun Kelley notes that the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 to repeal the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which had effectively banned full sports betting in every state except Nevada. While the analyst expects operator margins to be low, he sees upside for all of regional gaming, while gaming tech could be a key beneficiary. Reflecting sports betting in higher multiples, Kelley raised his price targets for Boyd Gaming (BYD) to $45 from $42, Penn National (PENN) to $36 from $32, Scientific Games (SGMS) to $70 from $60, and International Game (IGT) to $36 from $34.

Penn National reinstated with an Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Joseph Gref upgraded Penn National Gaming to Overweight from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $40 from $26 following a period of restriction. The analyst sees a favorable setup for the shares given an "attractive regional gaming landscape" and the company's margin improvement initiatives. He "reasonably" sees adjusted EBITDAR margins expanding into the low 30%s from 2017's 27.9%.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

As reported earlier, SunTrust analyst C. Patrick Scholes upgraded Gaming and Leisure Properties (GLPI) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target to $41 from $38. The analyst says the key to the stock is the replacement of Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK) with a new deal partner BYD, adding that the market has not priced in all of the Penn National (PENN) deal accretion. Scholes also believes that Gaming and Leisure Properties should see a "robust M&A pipeline" that offers more positive catalysts.
