Las Vegas Sands upgraded on expected estimate revisions at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Shaun Kelley upgraded Las Vegas Sands to Buy and raised its price target to $63 from $52.

Macau to grow at 8% CAGR 2016-2020, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Vitaly Umansky estimates that Macau's gross gaming revenue will grow at an 8% compound annual growth rate from 2016-2020, driven by non-VIP CAGR of about 11% and VIP CAGR of about 3%. The analyst says that the region's high margin mass gambling is strengthening and continues to be supported by catalysts, while VIP has been growing since September. Umansky identifies Melco Crown (MPEL) as the most undervalued stock in his coverage. He says that the company has multiple positive catalysts, and he keeps a $21.50 price target and a Buy rating on the shares. Other stocks with exposure to Macau include Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts (WYNN), and MGM Resorts (MGM).

MGM Resorts upgraded on positive outlook at Argus
As noted earlier, Argus upgraded MGM to Buy from Hold. Analyst John Staszak upgraded the stock based on what he sees as "prospects for solid growth in Las Vegas and early signs of recovery in Macau." The analyst believes that investors have not yet "fully recognized" the upbeat signs in Macau, and he thinks that the region will rebound in Q4 and 2017, sparked by the opening of new casinos there. Target $32.

MGM Resorts price target raised to $33 from $30 at Stifel
Stifel believes that MGM's Q3 results showed "broad based strength" in all of its holdings. The analyst, calling the stock's 2% increase yesterday a "muted" reaction, believes that investors are wondering how much more the stock can rise. However, he thinks the continuation of strength in the company's Las Vegas and Macau assets, along with two major new projects in Maryland and Macau, should enable the shares to rise over the next year. He raised his price target on the stock to $33 from $30 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Starz (STRZA) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Pivotal Research with analyst Jeffrey Wlodarczak saying the Starz/Lionsgate (LGF) pro-forma entity is fairly valued. 4. Western Digital (WDC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Cross Research with the firm saying the company is either unwilling or unable to provide a reasonable level of precision to the newly combined businesses with SanDisk and the higher than expected cost structure, combined with compensation increases will be a drag. 5.

Melco Crown COO departure creates concern but stock cheap, says Bernstein
After Melco's COO resigned, Bernstein analyst Vitaly Umansky says that his departure will increase the company's execution risk in the enar-term. After speaking with multiple sources, the analyst says that the reasons for the resignation are "varied," but are partly tied to the CEO's "decentralization strategy" and the performance of the company's Studio City asset. He says that Melco Crown "remains one of the most undervalued stocks" he covers, but he adds that several catalysts will have to play out before the stock can rise meaningfully. The analyst keeps a $21.50 price target and an Outperform rating on the shares.
