Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS)’ Worldwide Domination

Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS) has been a high flying stock for the past couple of months. This could be because of the company’s expansion, high volume, and phenomenal earnings. Las Vegas Sands recently reported its Q1 2013 earnings. The company attracted a horde of tourists and saw a 20% surge in revenue, led by accelerated growth in Macau. For these reasons, I believe that Las Vegas will see growth that it has never seen before. Below, I will explain why I think Las Vegas Sands will continue to soar as well as outline why its competitors are no match for it.

Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS)

Worldwide markets

China’s Casino Industry

The World Bank recently reported that Chinese growth will recover in 2013 to an estimated 8.4%, which is 0.3% greater than the previous estimate. World Bank cited government stimulus, monetary easing, and an upswing in the business cycle as the reason for the change in estimates. Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS) is undervalued because of widespread fear in China. Its stock price should continue to ameliorate through 2013 due to the following reason.

Macau’s deadly drop

Macau has been a casino empire for many years. Unfortunately,  Las Vegas Sands does not control it. It has been trying to gain control of it by opening more casinos in the area to attract more tourists. But it is not its fault entirely, sluggish growth was seen in the area but after a few quarters of sluggish growth resulting from a dawdling Chinese economy, Macau’s casino and gaming industry once again demonstrated strength. The region’s gambling revenues surged 15% in the first quarter of 2013 led by the growth in various casino operations. Even though China’s economy worsened, Las Vegas Sands continued to do well in Macau.

Singapore’s government

Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS)’ Singapore revenue declined in the first quarter of 2013. Singapore’s economy has slowed down over the past few quarters, which has impacted its business. In addition, Singapore’s government launched new measures to stabilize the economy. I believe that the downward earnings trend in Singapore will continue, but this will not affect operations and overall results.


MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM)

Similar to Las Vegas Sands, MGM Resorts International has had a phenomenal recovery since the 2008 debacle. As many may argue, this is a phenomenal stock, yet it seems to be slowing down. MGM Resorts International currently has a year-over-year quarterly growth of 3% as compared to Las Vegas Sands, which has a growth of approximately 20%. MGM Resorts International’s gross margins also stand at 37%, while Las Vegas Sands is at a whopping 75%. MGM Resorts International’s PEG ratio is also negative.
