Mizuho Securities analyst Haendel St. Juste initiates coverage on Gaming and Leisure (NASDAQ: GLPI) with a Buy rating and a price target of $47.00.

The analyst comments "GLPI is currently the only Gaming REIT under our coverage (peers include VICI and MGP). Gaming REITs have proven their resilience (100% rent collections since inception) and we see GLPI/peers as net-winners in the recovery of the US economy as consumer spending and gaming revenues recover/grow. GLPI should benefit from relative structural safety (lease enhancements, credit tenants, high barriers-to-entry and alignment of interests with states). All told, we see re-rating upside given proven operating resilience, improving growth and greater institutional acceptance. Key risks include the rise of online betting, rising rates, lower rent bumps, and extensive regulation."
