10:27 EDTWYNN, LVS, MGM, MPELWynn Resorts climbs after results beat expectations
Shares of Wynn (WYNN) and other casino owners are advancing after Wynn reported stronger than expected results last night. WHAT'S NEW: Wynn reported first quarter earnings per share, excluding certain items, of $2.32, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $2.07. The company's revenue was also higher than expected. Wynn stated that revenue from its operations on the Chinese peninsula of Macau had surged 14% to $1.13B in Q1 versus the year ago period. Wynn's revenue from Las Vegas dropped 1.5% from year ago levels, but the occupancy of its hotels in the city jumped 12.6%, while revenue per available room rose 12.7%. However, its gambling winning rate in the city declined. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, research firm Sterne Agee responded to the company's results by upgrading the stock to Buy from Neutral. The stock had dropped 17% from its 52-week highs as of yesterday's close on worries about demand in Macau, but these worries are mostly unfounded, Sterne Agee analyst David Bain wrote. The company is poised to see its earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, on Macau more than double after it opens up a new casino, Wynn Palace, in about 18 months, Bain believes. He thinks that the stock has reached an attractive entry point and has a $260 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Wynn jumped 6.8% to $220.75, Las Vegas Sands (LVS) rose 2.2% to $81.12, MGM Resorts (MGM) advanced 3.4% to $26.26, and Melco Crown (MPEL) gained 6.6% to $36.62.
