Chinese authorities confirmed they have detained several employees of Crown Resorts, one of Australia's biggest casino operators, and the company's stock tumbled almost 15% and dragged down stocks of Macau-based casinos listed on the Hong Kong market, reported The Wall Street Journal. Melco Crown Entertainment (MPEL) is a 27% shareholder in Crown Resorts, the report noted. 18 Crown employees, including the head of the company's international VIP team, were detained as part of an investigation into gambling-related activities, the report noted. Other U.S.-listed companies in the Macau gaming space include Las Vegas Sands (LVS), MGM Resorts (MGM) and Wynn Resorts (WYNN). Reference Link

CLSA cuts Wynn Resorts to Underperform, says cannibalization risk underestimated
As previously reported, CLSA analyst Jon Oh downgraded Wynn Resorts to Underperform from Outperform. Along with its Q2 call, the company revealed that it expects to receive only 100 new tables for the Wynn Palace opening and expects to move a greater-than-expected 250 tables from Wynn Macau to Wynn Palace. While Oh does not think Wynn Palace's economics change in this scenario, he remains concerned that the market is underestimating the risk of self-cannibalization and a slower Macau EBITDA uplift. Oh keeps a $97 price target on the stock but believes the risk/reward ratio has become unfavorable following the stock's year-to-date rally of over 50%.
