    The current consensus is for 13%+ GGR in Macau. That is nor disappointing considering the torrid pace of growth over the last couple of years has resulted in a huge base there.

    More importantly for LVS growth, the Cotai Center is the big news there and pulling traffic away from the older resorts. Visitation, retail sales, GGR, mass play (better margins than "VIP") in the Cotai Center is being led by the four new resorts opened by LVS over the last 11 months.

    Recap: LVS is taking an increasing proportion of a nicely ramping pie, a trend likely to continue for at least the next couple of years as those and the fifth resort under construction now as well as the new retail center coming in Cotai all come on line and then ramp.

    The stock is cheap relative to the power of this growth curve and mgmt's shareholder orientation... and their statement yesterday made it clear they are unwilling to tolerate being abused in the press. The stock is ready to lift after this little shakeout on the chart... place your bets.

    • What we need is a little pop that we actually hold onto throughout the session and overnight.

      The normal pattern of HOD before 10AM EST and then a shakeout towards LOD and then a slow drift somewhere in between has been going on for a long time as the predominant pattern.

      Yesterday we did show incredible strength under the heavy burden of FCPA/Bribery rumors and an anticipated slow down in China, Visa restrictions etc.....

      Today's action is questionable in that we did not follow up yesterday w a strong positive day today (not done yet).

      I am currently in a holding pattern although I would lie to clear some funds and pickup more.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • Well thought out!
