MGM Resorts added to Analyst Focus List at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Joseph Greff added MGM Resorts to his firm's Analyst Focus List saying he sees an increasingly favorable setup for 2019. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $38 from $35 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name. He sees a combination of relatively low expectations in Las Vegas, improving operations/efficiencies and an attractive valuation.

UBS now sees Macau gross gaming revenue declining in 2019
UBS analyst Robin Farley lowered her 2019 Macau gross gaming revenue forecast to down 1% from up 5% previously. Her 2020 GGR estimate is now up 4% from a prior estimate of up 8%. Despite better than expected revenue in November, likely due to hold fluctuations, the lower estimates are driven by weaker VIP and premium demand amid heightened risk to the macroeconomic outlook in China, Farley tells investors in a research note partially titled "More Visitors Spending Less." She raised her price target for Neutral-rated Wynn Resorts (WYNN) to $113 from $108 while lowering her targets for Neutral-rated MGM Resorts (MGM) to $30 from $32 and Neutral-rated Melco Resorts & Entertainment (MLCO) to $19.50 from $21.60. The analyst also keeps a Neutral rating on Las Vegas Sands (LVS).

Xi-Trump truce should ease some Macau concerns, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Thomas Allen believes that the constructive outcome from the G-20 meeting of Presidents Trump and Xi should be a positive for both Las Vegas Sands (LVS) and Wynn Resorts (WYNN), as he believes a thawing of trade tensions should ease some concerns around Macau concession renewals. Macau stocks have also been weighed down by slowing demand and concerns around the China consumption backdrop, but there have been positive updates on that front too, said Allen, who noted that Las Vegas Sands continues to be his preferred play on Macau. He keeps Overweight ratings on Las Vegas Sands and MGM Resorts (MGM), but does not view MGM as the same type of China proxy given its less than 20% Macau mix. Allen keeps an Equal Weight rating on Wynn shares.

Market Perform
Caesars initiated with a Market Perform at Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Vitaly Umansky started Caesars with a Market Perform rating and $9.10 price target. The analyst notes that over the last five years, gaming stocks have gone through periods of significant underperformance, followed by significant outperformance. The last six months have been exceptionally difficult for gaming stocks as Macau growth has begun to decelerate following nearly two years of strong growth and Las Vegas has seen unexpected near-term softness, he contends. However, Umansky argues that the gaming space has shown that if investors pick the right market, the right company, at the right time, outsized returns are possible.

The analyst says her "bearish thesis" is now priced in with the stock down 33% over the past three months. Farley believes her below-consensus view on the Las Vegas market is more factored into the stock at these levels.

Wynn, Caesars best large-cap Gaming stocks for 2019, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Carlo Santarelli says Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Caesars Entertainment (CZR) are the best ways to play the large-cap Gaming space in 2019. Given current valuations and fundamental expectations "that seemingly accompany those valuations," the analyst is constructive on the larger-cap Gaming names and sees a bias to the upside in the stocks.

Jefferies lowers Caesars target to $11 after 'softness' in Q3
Jefferies analyst David Katz views the "softness" in Caesars Entertainment's Q3 results as less consequential than the announcements of a leadership change and the decision to revisit the guidance process going forward, which he believes are "undoubtedly constructive in the longer term." Nonetheless, the analyst lowered his price target for Caesars to $11 from $12 and keeps a Hold rating on the name. The positive merits of the "increasingly clearer operating story" are tempered by the capital structure and allocation, Katz tells investors in a post-earnings research note titled "Change Can Be a Good Thing."

Wynn Resorts price target lowered to $140 from $210 at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst David Bain lowered his price target for Wynn Resorts (WYNN) to $140 from $210 as he believes Q4 Macau EBITDA guidance of between $304M-$340M versus $400M consensus exposes VIP/high-end play volatility in Macau and downside risks in the current China economy. While Wynn is the most exposed to VIP weakness in Macau, the analyst believes commentary stops the small momentum other Macau names were beginning to build since Las Vegas Sands (LVS) and MGM Resorts (MGM) reported earnings. He reiterates a Buy rating on Wynn's shares.
