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).

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.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Macy's (M) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Paul Lejuez saying an attractive free cash flow and dividend yield makes the risk/reward attractive at current levels. 2. Fifth Third (FITB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Compass Point. 3. F5 Networks (FFIV) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer with analyst Ittai Kidron saying the company has several potential drivers that could drive year-over-year product revenue growth back into positive territory in fiscal 2017. 4. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying that Macau gambling is shifting towards the non-VIP market, where he believes that Las Vegas Sands is well-positioned. 5.

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%.

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.

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.
