Morgan Stanley analyst Thomas Allen said MGM Resorts' (MGM) sale-leaseback of Bellagio in a deal with Blackstone (BX) and its sale of Circus-Circus to an affiliate of Treasure Island owner Phil Ruffin came at higher multiples than he expected, prompting him to raise his price target on MGM shares to $32 from $31. However, Allen keeps an Equal Weight rating on MGM shares, citing his concerns around Las Vegas risk in Q4 and questions about the achievability of its 2020 targets.
