What are analysts saying about Las Vegas Sands Corp. stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Las Vegas Sands Corp. stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Las Vegas Sands’ Q4 2016 earnings of $0.62 remained flat year over year but lagged the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 4.6%. Quarterly revenues of $3.08 billion came below the consensus mark by over 2%, but inched up 7.4% due to fairly better performance in Macao. Notably, a tough operating environment in Macao weighed on the stock in 2015 and for the most part of 2016. However, the region has slowly started returning to life with gaming revenues growing therein on an annual basis over the past five months. Also, the company’s consistent efforts to boost tourism and traffic therein along with focus on diversification of revenues and growth in the mass and non-gaming market should continue to mitigate the effects of a slowdown in the VIP gaming business and aid margins. Yet, a complete rebound in the region take time. In fact, Las Vegas Sands’ shares have underperformed the Zacks categorized Gaming industry over the past six months." (1/30/2017)

  • Aegis analysts commented, "Following 4Q16 results that featured a largely disappointing Macau segmentation, our CY17/CY18 EBITDA estimates go to $4.17b/$4.25b from $4.19b/$4.28b. Our price target goes to $59 from $60." (1/26/2017)
  • Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are raising our 2017-2018 Macau property estimates by ~6% based on trends we have witnessed over the last six months and off our continued belief Macau fundamentals should continue to improve. In addition, we are slightly raising our out year margin assumptions based on a higher contribution from the mass side of the gaming business coupled with a higher degree of non-gaming spend in the market. Recall, we were just in Macau about a month ago and these estimate changes were something we wanted to make post our trip. However, given the noise around the UnionPay changes, we wanted to let the market settle and analyze if there would be any material negative impact. At this point, we don't believe there will be. Given the recent pullback in LVS and the other Macau operators, we still believe these are great names to own throughout 2017. Our target price goes to $66 (+$1), which is based on our revised 2018 sum-of-the-parts (SOTP) analysis." (1/17/2017)
  • Argus analysts commented, "We believe that LVS is well positioned in this segment, and expect it to benefit from its Integrated Resort business model, which includes hotels, convention centers, and retail stores, as well as casinos.Related Link: Stifel Offers Updates On Best Ideas In Gaming & Leisure"LVS is also focused on maintaining high occupancy at its Macau hotels. In addition, we expect investors to benefit from the company's highly profitable Singapore operations, $2 billion share buyback program, and 5.1 percent dividend yield." (9/14/2016)
