Boyd Gaming Beats on Revenue, EPS Despite a COVID-19 Hit

Casino and gambling company Boyd Gaming (NYSE: BYD) released its third-quarter 2020 earnings report today, showing that while the coronavirus continues to depress results, Boyd is faring better than analysts expected. According to Zack's Equity Research, adjusted earnings per share of $0.38 easily beat Wall Street analyst expectations of $0.17, while analyst consensus revenue forecasts of $609.6 million were handily surpassed by the actual $652.2 million results.
