Las Vegas Sands, Wynn Resorts targets raised at Morgan Stanley after Macau trip
After visiting Macau last week, Morgan Stanley analyst Thomas Allen raised his 2018/2019 EBITDA forecast for Las Vegas Sands by 1%, citing strong visitation growth over Chinese New Year, less MGM (MGM) Cotai cannibalization, and less renovation disruption at Cotai Central, all of which make him lower his projection for Las Vegas' market share decline to only 0.4% in loss versus his prior view of a 1% share loss. While it appears the new MGM Cotai has attracted a lot of visitors since opening, Allen believes a mixture of service issues and low hold will impact near-term results. For Wynn Resorts (WYNN), Allen raised his 2018/2019 EBITDA view by 4%/2% to reflect stronger results in both Macau and Vegas. Allen increased his price target on Las Vegas Sands shares to $82 from $81, upped his Wynn target to $194 from $193 and keeps a $40 price target on MGM Resorts.

Stifel returns from Macau trip with 'much more positive' view for 2018
Stifel analyst Steven Wieczynski said that after meeting with property managements and industry contacts in Macau recently he came back with a "much more positive/constructive view for 2018" than he was previously forecasting. It was clear that operators were "thrilled" with how the Chinese New Year holiday played out and demand post-CNY had continued to be strong, especially on the VIP side, Wieczynski tells investors. He maintains his Buy rating on Las Vegas Sands (LVS) and Hold ratings on MGM Resorts (MGM) and Wynn Resorts (WYNN). Melco Resorts (MLCO) is another publicly traded company in the Macau gaming space.

Caesars has path to $21 per share, says Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Joseph Stauff contends that Caesar's has emerged from bankruptcy as a "very compelling" long idea, citing its potential to drive better than expected EBITDA growth. He identifies $600M of incremental EBITDA that can be added by its Las Vegas renovations, licensing agreements and margin improvement, which if added to current estimates would assume a $21 per share stock, he tells investors.

These include Q2 RevPAR strength in Las Vegas, which is being underappreciated by investors, Curtis tells investors in a research note. He notes the stock has 36% upside potential to his $15 price target along with a 13% free cash flow yield on 2019 estimates. Curtis keeps a Buy rating on Caesars.

The analyst also notes that the company has attributed some of the soft FY18 outlook to adverse weather conditions in the Midwest and South regions. Longer term, Scholes keeps his Buy rating on Boyd Gaming, stating he would be a buyer on weakness based on the company's Las Vegas prospects and avenues for continued M&A driven growth.
