Zacks

One stock that might be an intriguing choice for investors right now is Melco Crown Entertainment Limited MPEL.

This is important because, often times, a rising tide will lift all boats in an industry, as there can be broad trends taking place in a segment that are boosting securities across the board. This is arguably taking place in the Leisure & Recreation-Gaming space as it currently has a Zacks Industry Rank of 36 out more than 250 industries, suggesting it is well-positioned from this perspective, especially when compared to other segments out there.
