Macau gaming stocks should finally get ‘nice relief rally,’ says Stifel
On January 14, 2022, Stifel analyst Steven Wieczynski said that Macau gaming stocks, namely Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts (WYNN), and MGM Resorts (MGM), should finally get a “nice relief rally” as the Macau government has outlined what their gaming concession renewals should look like. The analyst noted that the concession framework would keep the number of concession holders at six, with a length of 10 years with a potential three-year extension, which he views as a “slight negative.” Wieczynski also noted that he had heard the concession renewal length could be as short as five years and as long as 20 years, adding that he can “live with this” as five yeras really would have done nothing from a long-term investor’s view. The analyst maintained Buy ratings on Las Vegas Sands and Wynn and kept a Hold on MGM.
