18:21 EDTLVSLas Vegas Sands discloses in a 10K filing of 'likely' violations of FCPA
Las Vegas Sands disclosed in a regulatory filing on Friday: "On February 9, 2011, Las Vegas Sands received a subpoena from the Securities and Exchange Commission, SEC, requesting that the company produce documents relating to its compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FCPA. The company has also been advised by the Department of Justice, DOJ, that it is conducting a similar investigation. As part of the annual audit of the company’s financial statements, the Audit Committee advised the company and its independent accountants that it had reached certain preliminary findings, including that there were likely violations of the books and records and internal controls provisions of the FCPA and that in recent years, the company has improved its practices with respect to books and records and internal controls. Based on the information provided to management by the Audit Committee and its counsel, the Company believes, and the Audit Committee concurs, that the preliminary findings: do not have a material impact on the financial statements of the Company; do not warrant any restatement of the Company’s past financial statements; and do not represent a material weakness in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting as of December 31."

07:37 EDTLVSLarge-Cap Gaming sector downgraded at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo downgraded the Large-Cap Gaming sector to Market Weight from Overweight while cutting its ratings on Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Melco Crown (MPEL) to Market Perform from Outperform. Wells believes near-term uncertainty in Macau has increased, making the risk/reward on shares balanced for the next 6-12 months. The firm thinks second half of 2014 and 2015 EBITDA estimates still need to come down another 10%. Wells cuts its price target range for Las Vegas Sands to $60-$70 from $80-$85, for Wynn to $180-$200 from $245-$250 and for Melco to $28-$31 from $38-$40. The firm keeps a Market Perform rating on MGM Resorts (MGM) with a slightly reduced price target range of $23-$26.
