Taiwanese prosecutors in the Taipei district said yesterday they were investigating an unnamed firm they suspected of circumventing forex rules to carry out huge money transfers for use in Macau casinos, according to report from Macaubusiness.com, citing the AFP. Prosecutors declined to identify the firm, but Wells Fargo said in a note to investors this morning that press reports suggest MCE International, a subsidiary of Melco Crown (MPEL), may be one company in question. Wells analyst Cameron McKnight said any weakness in Melco shares following the news of the investigation would present a buying opportunity, as the probe may not be may not be specific to gaming or to Melco Crown.

Melco Crown declined 36c, or about 1.9%, to $18.70 in morning trading.
