MrTaxx was on call/put/call/put, he is not sure.
Nomura comes up with pretty good forecast based on 14 days. It should come to 8-9%, not 3%.
Now pumping SCL.
香港時間0957（道瓊斯）--野村稱，2月份的前24天澳門錄得博彩收入234億澳門元，意味著月內每天的博彩收入達9.77億澳門元，最近7天每天的收入為12億元，較農曆新年期間大幅增長。野村表示，本週的數據應減輕投資者對上週貴賓廳業務增長放緩的擔憂。該行仍建議投資者選擇持有那些盈利增長動力上升的股份，認為一旦宏觀基本面轉而惡化，這些股份的低估值應提供支撐。野村在報告中繼續推薦金沙中國(1928.HK)和新濠博亞娛樂 (MPEL, 6883.HK)，因它們的營運趨勢向好，大眾業務佔有率相對較高。金沙中國目前下跌0.3%，至35.45港元。
The British rumor came and went. SCL and LVS recovered the losses.
Immediately after, the firms/junkets had to 'leak' Febr number.
Both were rumors.
The only fact is Macau had a record CNY.
Stock pricing may not follow logic.
But, knowing why it tanks help with strategy.
Since it is a bluff, it must go back up.
Buy the dip or just wait it out.
MrTaxx/BJSPOKANIMAL /DB/abc/Bret/all, are now in put.
Historically, you can tell their strategy. When they start selling, there is no logic.
They stick together like glue, sell sell sell.
When such happens, the stock has no other choice but down down down.
Maybe 45,36,,who knows.
Why 'strong buy'?
The only chance it can close green is that it has had straight 7 days losing streak.
It looks bad. All news are good for Sands, but the 2 rumors kill it all.
When LVS mon'keys start selling, they stick together and just sell sell sell.
Notice all those pumpers are now in put.
Another big loss for SCL. Firms are not shorting, from short interests, 4% to 0.5%.
Retail traders are on panic sell. HK market tanks 400 points. Europe joins the bloodbath, future red 35.
It looks like another loss for LVS tomorrow.
Whenever LVS traders start selling, there is no stopping. Unless, Some big news such as Korean project.
$45 within a week is possible.
On the last British rumor, Chinese analysts came out to defend. After a few days, all losses were recovered.
This time around, nobody came out to defend. All those pumpers analysts are suddenly silenced.
Simply, VIP number is very specially handled, nobody know how the number is compiled.
Firms and junkets use this number to manipulate the stocks.
None of the VIP 'rumor' should affect Sands. In fact Sands just got the best CNY and it was punished. It's a case of sell the good news.
It's mass hysteria now.
Only retail longs are selling, not much firms' shorting. Of course, if retail investors continue to panic sell, they will short again.
From HK, firms have not been shorting for 2 days now, but the market is tanking.
HK has always pride itself as 'an extension' of the western world. If Wall Street GOP calls for a global shorting campaign, HK will oblige.
It tanks 400 points, 2X more than Wall Street.
HK market is perhaps the only market that has not made new highs in 8 years.
Way way oversold.
The British rumor left a bearish mood.
When it was 53-54, weird volatility was randomly happening.
Some sellers/firms have been throwing huge orders.
Those incidents spooo'ked many.
As soon as the PRE-revenue forecast tanked HK casino stocks after the long weekend, people just gave in.
It dropped like a rock from $53 to 50.
Does it matter if the February revenue forecast was fluke?
Would the #$%$ apologize for mistake? Damage has been done.
Buy the dip, let them do the discount work.
Every mon'key here is hoping for a repeat of last year's 62-38.
If you have around, the scenario were totally different.
I doubt selling momentum can hold it further down.
A rebound is in order. It has been way oversold.
$54-53 was by the British rumor.
$53-51 was analyst forecast 'rumor'.
Today's action was aftermath of yesterday's institutional shorting.
Some stupid retail day traders are chasing lows.
They got lucky with market dip.
Fed and republican #$%$ come and go.
Dow13.8-14K will make LVS back to 55, then 60.
I am buying more.
