The broker notes that underlying business fundamentals are improving and casinos are largely open as normal in North America. In addition to this, it believes its strong balance sheet gives management options to accelerate its growth.

Morgan Stanley has been pleased with its performance and believes it is well-placed for growth. So much so, it has an overweight rating and $9.30 price target on its shares. This compares to the current ELMO share price of $6.45.
