    Don't forget. LVS made some changes that boost EPS & PE

    ... earnings are earnings regardless of the margins that produced them. Mass margins are much greater... around 15% vs about 3% gross of commissions for VIP, but the volumes are much lower.

    Put another way, VIP drop is far an away greater than mass drop but mass hold is much closer to VIP hold given the margins.

    GLTYT, mut.

    • Spok I get some great information on the message boards. I have been looking at your post from the last couple of years and you have been spot on. It strikes me that you could print out the posts from 2009 to now and pick out the best 100 and fill in some commentary between pages and have a great book.Las Vegas Sands and The Message Boards.I learn more about the stock from you than any one on any of the boards I go on. I think we all should thank our lucky stars you are Invested in Las Vegas Sands. I don't know what you do for a living or how you get all the information you do but it has helped in all of my trades not just LVS.Just thought I would share how I feel.JMHO

      • ... and the fact that I have a few times keeps me on this board in lieu of others that have been suggested to me.

        In all fairness, I would submit that I make plenty of mis-steps along the way. Anybody who says they don't is a liar... economics and investing is like weather forcasting... an in-exact science where the guy who's right 70% of the time is Warren Buffett.

        Similarly, Adelson himself is a rags to riches guy many times over but, like Buffett, he knows value within the realm of potential and he double's down in those situations.

        Hopefully, the lessons that took me decades to learn from the contrarians that mentored me are useful when I share them here. I appreciate that they were helpful for you.

        GLTY, and all the good people on this board.
