Macau casino name weakness attributed to report of regulator's rebid comments

Shares of several publicly traded companies in the Macau gaming space, including Las Vegas Sands (LVS), MGM Resorts (MGM), Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Melco Resorts (MLCO), have seen some late morning weakness as attention gets called to a Bloomberg report last night regarding Chinese-language media reports regarding the G2E Asia conference. At the event, the Chinese reports claim that DICJ Director Paul Chan implied that existing Macau casino operators will have to rebid for their licenses, Bloomberg said last night. The DICJ is the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau of Macau.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tiffany (TIF) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs analyst Lindsay Drucker Mann saying the luxury category is improving amid higher international tourist spending and a "firming" high-end U.S. consumer. 2. Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Loop Capital with analyst Anthony Chukumba citing valuation, not a more bullish view of the company's fundamentals, for the upgrade. 3. Chemours (CC) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying the stock's multiple can expand given the company's longer-term growth opportunities. Chemours has a proprietary set of "very profitable newer generation refrigerants with patent lives extending to 2022 with excellent growth potential," Zekauskas tells investors in a research note. He raised his price target for the shares to $50 from $39. 4. TripAdvisor (TRIP) upgraded to Long-Term Buy from Neutral at Hilliard Lyons with analyst Stephen Turner citing improving underlying performance following the first quarter report. 5. Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Las Vegas Sands (LVS) were upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Overweight
Las Vegas Sands, Wynn Resorts upgraded on Macau recovery at Barclays
As previously reported, Barclays analyst Felicia Hendrix upgraded both Las Vegas Sands (LVS) and Wynn Resorts (WYNN), each to Overweight from Equal Weight, citing the recovery in Macau, which she now believes is sustainable. The Macau gaming market has been picking up steam, having posted four consecutive quarters of mass market GGR growth, and Hendrix sees this as the early stages of a multi-year growth cycle, she tells investors. The analyst, who raised her price target on Las Vegas Sands to $68 from $55 and on Wynn to $144 from $87, also keeps an unchanged Overweight rating and $34 target on casino peer MGM Resorts (MGM).

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Big Lots (BIG) upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Dan Wewer saying all productivity metrics continue to improve as the company has pruned back underperforming stores and has focused on sales, productivity, EBIT%, ROIC, FCF, dividend growth, and buybacks. Wewer notes Big Lots' short interest has reached 33% and could be a benefit as the company delivers on on earnings and guidance. 2. Dynegy (DYN) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Abe Aza citing a balanced risk/reward with the stock down 30% since February's "disappointing" New England capacity auction results. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $7 from $6. 3. L Brands (LB) upgraded to Buy on core comp, margin opportunity at Buckingham with the firm saying the worst of trends at Victoria's Secret are past and believes core comps and margin can improve going forward. 4. Wynn Resorts (WYNN) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Union Gaming. 5. BHP Billiton (BHP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

MGM Resorts decline caused by several factors, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Steven Wieczynski blames yesterday's decline in MGM's stock on the company's statement that President Trump's travel ban "created some noise in Strip lodging trends during January and February.," a decline in National Harbor's win rate in February versus January, and the North Korea missile launch. However, the analyst notes that March has been more encouraging in Vegas so far, and he keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Macau forecasts raised at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Thomas Allen raised Macau estimates to reflect stronger Q1 momentum, driven by the VIP segment, and increased confidence in infrastructure, such as the Taipa ferry terminal opening. As a result, the analyst raised Wynn Resorts price target to $130 from $124 and continues to believe it has the most upside versus consensus, raised Las Vegas Sands (LVS) price target to $58 from $57, and increased MGM Resorts' price target to $31 from $30.
