14:25 EDTLVSEarnings Watch: Analyst sees 'no surprises' in Las Vegas Sands report
Las Vegas Sands (LVS) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings after the close on Wednesday, January 27, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Las Vegas Sands is a resort developer with principal operations in Macao, Singapore, and the U.S. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 65c on revenue of $2.92B. The consensus EPS range is 61c-72c, while revenue expectations range from $2.84B-$3.02B, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: On October 21, Sands reported third quarter adjusted earnings per share of 66c versus expectations for 64c, and Q3 revenue of $2.89B against a consensus estimate of $2.97B. Additionally, Las Vegas Sands reported Q3 adjusted property EBITDA of $1.05B, and Q3 Macao adjusted property EBITDA of $536.8M. CEO Sheldon Adelson said at the time, "While the operating environment in Macao, particularly in the high-end gaming segments, remained challenging during the quarter, our focus on the higher margin mass and non-gaming segments and the geographic diversification of our cash flows allowed us to again deliver in excess of $1B of adjusted property EBITDA during the quarter and weather this cyclical downturn better than the industry overall. We remain sharply focused on the consistent execution of our global growth strategy, which leverages the power of our unique convention-based Integrated Resort business model." STREET RESEARCH: Following the Q3 earnings report, on October 27, Las Vegas Sands was initiated with a Buy at Gabelli with a $60 price target. On the same day, the company was downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with its price target lowered to $45 from $55. Barclays analyst Felicia R. Hendrix said she believed the 2016 gross gaming revenue growth for Macau would be negative given continued VIP and premium mass revenue declines and slower than expected growth in the mass segment. On January 25, Deutsche Bank analyst Carlo Santarelli said in his Q4 preview of Las Vegas Sands that he sees "no major surprises" in the report, adding, "while we believe Q4 earnings are more than likely a supportive to modestly positive catalyst for shares, we expect medium to longer term trading to be largely Macau market sentiment driven." Santarelli has a Hold rating and a $42 price target on Las Vegas Sands shares. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, Las Vegas Sands shares have fallen about 12%. In afternoon trading ahead of Wednesday's earnings report, shares are higher by more than 2.5% to $41.95.

13:50 EDTLVSLas Vegas Sands technical notes ahead of earnings
The shares have been in a steady downtrend since the trend began in March 2013. At the current price of $40, the stock would need to take out the $45 area on the upside to break the current downtrend. This would be a technical positive and bullish for future price. Next resistance would be at $47.42. If the news continues to be bearish, the downtrend is likely to extend. First support below $40 is at $38.32. Thereafter support is at $36.77 and the 52-week low at $34.88.
