Boyd Falls Most in Decade After Posting Surprise Loss

Boyd Gaming Corp., the operator of casinos in eight states, fell the most in more than a decade after reporting an unexpected third-quarter loss and projecting lower profit this period than analysts estimate.

Boyd declined 19 percent to $10.56 at the close in New York. That was the most since Sept. 17, 2001.

Results deteriorated in many markets last month, Chief Executive Officer Keith Smith said in a statement today. The loss, excluding some items, totaled 8 cents a share, Las Vegas-based Boyd said. Analysts expected profit of 1 cent.

Smith cited improvement in October and encouraging signs in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, New Jersey. Still, on a conference call today, company officials projected a loss this quarter of 15 cents to 20 cents a share. Analysts estimate a loss of 4 cents, the average of 16 estimates compiled by Bloomberg.
