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.
