    yeah, we do... you made an #$%$ out of yourself here saying MGM was going to be at $30 right before it collapsed to below $20. LOL

    ...and then there is manila... which, if Ho is correct, will generate almost as much revenue as Bellagio does for MGM next year. LOL

    I completely agree with your last sentence... but as to your Macau math, you might want to do a bit more study. MPEL generates substantially more revenue per table and room in Macau than does MGM, and with Studio City and Tower 5, say nothing of ideal vs so so footprint location, MPEL will continue to seriously outpace MGM for the duration.

    As for the rest of MGM's "franchise"? Again, MGM's Macau franchise as presently configured generates call it 40% of adj ebitda. if you are long MGM, you better hope Macau recovers such that the additional investment in Macau property generates AT LEAST 80% of overall adj ebitda, or MGM is going to be a hurting bunny, just like it was before diluting the snot out of base shareholders and refinancing debt as they gave away City Center at shareholders' expense and dug theior way out of the rat's behind of far too much debt relative to ebitda when the house of cards they had collapsed in 2008/09.

    the debt is all in support of the hog real estate and the debt will go with the real estate if they do the REIT structure... the problem with it is that currently they own it all together, meaning they have flexibility for the next downturn. If they spin off the real estate, they have nowhere to hide if their tiny GGR relative to massive room counts drops off the cliff again.

    Shel and the LVS crew continue to articulate the reason they don't do the REIT spinoff is that retail adj ebitda multiples on retail properties are far too cheap relative to their growth rates, but they know the reality is that they do not "own" the land under their footprint in Macau, the only place LVS has concentrated real estate assets. GFL getting "conservative" yield/REIT investors to sWALLOW THOSE DISCLOSURES WITHOUT SOMETHING MORE CONCRETE THAN "TRUST US, we think Beijing officials like us and would never confiscate our buildings or gaming concession. (caps unintended)

    That said, MGM's real estate in Vegas will need to be valued as to the ebitda generated by the income streams they have as commercial real estate focused on largely seasonal MICE business... excluding Bellagio, they really do not have any serious ebitda emanating from Vegas gaming revenue vis a vis Macau as is evident in their financials. MGM's single porperty in Macau generates ~40% of total and almost as much as much ebitda as does their entire Vegas franchise excluding Bellagio.

    Sybil,
    You are the sole "idiot" here Dougie, Tony is an intellectual giant in comparison. But you are a "laughable" moron, we'll give you that.

    So okay dougie aka Shirley Mason (toast, drjackoff, janetate, blaqnite, idiotpumper, fkuimbecile, fkunyc, fkuholly, et al in the “cabal”)… and "please refrain from those ad hominem attacks” while throwing stones from your “glass houses” ROTFLOL You have made many idiotic posts over time, but this one on your "toast22342000" alias is probably our favorite, an impaling all by your little old self. You suk at dissing, debate and multialias posting as well as stock picking doug... you really ought to stick to getting coffee for the ops staff and secretaries. ROTFLOL

  • PCLN's currency piece will continue to hamper constant $ returns for them, but travelers going to europe from the americas are doing so about 1/3 cheaper than they could say a year ago...

    And don't look yet, but Europe's underpinnings of a recovery are emerging... just in time for the Fed policy changes to stomp on emerging economies while the U.S. and Europe chug along?

    TRIP has has a light clip down, but EXPE still a bit rich given the euro's tumble vs the USD and likely more coming.. if we were still long PCLN, we'd be paired off with the EXPE on the short side.

    We'll own them both again when they drift off... down 10% the current target.

    Li's comments at the session on march 5th that "adequate diversification expanded over the forward 20-30 years" vs right now is the single most important development for Macau since Zhou (the former PRC security director) was arrested by Xi Jinping's regime late last July in the mother takedown of all the "tigers" snared in the "corruption crackdown."

    In addition to all of the press coverage suggesting the sky is falling on Macau, Steve Wynn's orchestrated solicitation of LOA volunteers seems to have finally rung the clarion bell in Beijing... Seems they now have realized that further crimping VIP play in Macau is going to risk seriously impairing employment, gaming tax revenues paying for all the infrastructure development in macau, hengqin and surrounds, and put their "golden goose" is a penalty box thus making it easy for venues such as manila and Korea to continue grabbing the VIP business away from Macau. Clearly they have the crooks routed out of Macau, but obviously they want the rules compliant VIP play to continue without people shying away from the glare of unwanted spotlights on elite wealth players' desire to relax and gamble.

    It will be interesting to watch the playout from here forward -- solid table allocations for all companies, including Galaxy in the coming weeks at the latest, would be a great start of quality follow through action on the part of Beijing and Macau officials.

    Also great to see the sky rose a bit last week in what is the seasonally weakest month of the year in Macau. Henny Penny grinning at the gristmill. LOL

    Here's some comedic irony -- look at this ridiculously ironic post from Shirley Mason over the weekend on SUNE (there he uses several of the IKGH aliases including drjackoff and toast). If anyone here had any wonder, read it slowly, remembering that he carries on conversations with and congratulates himself on his "superb analysis" and "great posts" and tends to think everyone gives a flying F how many alises he signs in on to give his multiple ratings upo or down. Holy S ironic and hilarious... and as with IKGH and here, generally wrong and incomplete while he attempts to dis anyone disagreeing with him. ROTFL

    Here "Shirley Mason" uses drjackoff, toast, janetate, fkuholly, fkuimbecile, fkunyc, darqnite, idiotpumper and several others I don't recall offhand... but it is all ridiculous, to be sure. He was formerly pretty coy aboput keeping his fake personnas distinctly separate in his posts, but as he got carried away complimenting himself and signing in right here on so many aliases, he lost track of himself more than once. Hey Shirley mason was all a big hoax if you followed that story too, so maybe we should all thank drjackoff for his free entertainment here, albeit of the "stupid comedy" variety.

    Unless he is an unpaid intern, someone must be paying him by the hour to waste so much time trying to shake out 200 shares a month on a 5m shares a day tape. He's still hyping IKGH on brinerbriner and jugheadus and toast and janetate, though LOL

    He actually suks at debate if you have ever read any of his attempts to conjure up reasonable "arguments"... and now he has relegated himself to "ad hominem attacks," complimenting himself with various aliases, signing in multiple times to rate posts (like anyone gives a F) and throwing stones out of his glass house while everyone can see how lame all of that is.

    Meanwhile, the value guys are scooping up shares here... the business plan, execution and adj ebitda matter, but Shirley Mason's dog #$%$ on EPS or anything else does not. LOL

    Here's one of the examples of "puthimon" calling out Shirley mason (drjackoff, janetate, toast et al) right here on the MPEL board after Sybil hyping IKGH on many alaises on that board. Funny how bs stinks no matter where a dope tries to stuff it.

    From "puthimon" to drjackoff right here last December:

    "I see you finally took my advice on WYNN after losing all your money after being the primary pumper on IKGH all the way down from $9 until you shamefully left the board telling everyone they'd earn $4/share in 2014."

    Comedy if not such a deceptive ad hominem little pos...

    And gee, seems Shirley mason (drjackoff,janetate, toast et al) has stopped cutting and pasting David Bain's research updates on weekly market share... awwwww. Those who want such data can see the unofficial tallies from at least 3 other firms if you want to trade weekly options with the monkeys on such premises. LOL

    Let me begin afesh by saying FY Shirley Mason (janetate, drjackoff, toast, brinerbriner and all the rest of you aliases you carry on your conversations with yourself on)... you are intentionally deceitful, underhanded and one very ad hominem little pos.

    You continue to amaze anyone reading your ironic bs. You have advocating buying IKGH since $8 (the first time you hyped it here and in other forums incl the lvsforum)... be sure and let us all know when you decide to sell that. Delcious irony that you were long that all the way down to $1.

    As for "changing our opinions" and my capacity to do that? Did i mention FY?

    My partner and I have shared many of our shofts in near term sentiment on this stock since 2009. Anyone reading here knows we've generally been long or hedged long, but also explained why we were selling out and or hedging with box shorts, paired offset, leveraged long, writing one way option premium (puts and calls) for the option monkeys, and many times sharing entry/add/ hedging and exit points.

    Anyone who thinks anything you have any credibilty should read all of that again to realize what a F moron you really are.

    Glad to have you short here putzbreath.

  • Irony squared:

    goog title for article that led Shirley ad hominem to call Jinping a "F hypocrite"...

    "China's next president has amassed a fortune running into hundreds of millions of pounds, according to a hugely damaging new report. The revelation comes as the Communist party faces increasingly difficult questions about how its leaders, who are paid ministerial salaries of just £8,000-a-year, live such gilded lives"

    Also search "XI Jinping family wealth"... the "corruption crackdown has certainly cleared out lots of legit criminals and truly corrupt govt officials, but much of the foxhunt and others incarcerated is more like the "masterful elimination of political enemies.

    Maybe old Lazlo's Cheshire cat grin rally to 2250 on the broad market no later than June 30 is grinning even wider this morning based on weak U.S. sales data/Fed policy implications. I see Shirley deleted her "LOL" intellect on these Lazlo notes. Yeah, Lazlo's call was 3 months forward, not 2 days as noted below.

    Here's some fun for Shirley to drop and roll in... just covered in the MGM pair at 19.58 (w ave) on the uptick... sentiment is so heavy on Macau even MGM and WYNN are ready to springboard on any upbeat news. LVS is el cheapo down here too, some 30% below Shirleymatrixgenius' "scale in" (LOL) at $72 on that last year. His call for $16 here is right up there with his call for $75 PT on MPEL in January 2014 -- the same day I wrote here that some may want to consider selling/hedging some of the "easy gains" as we were doing at $43... a call repeated in March when it was ramping up past $43 on the double top at $45+.

    And how about those darling airlines, aapl and sbux... also back to long BABA again this morning... algo monkeysd shorting is as cocky on those are they are here. One fine cup of tea.

  • squeezetracker squeezetracker Mar 11, 2015 12:44 PM Flag

    This research was published with the stock at $23.65... nothing has changed since except:

    (1) the RIP to $28+ followed by the market swoon taking the entire Macau group (even though the VIP softness effects MPEL the least) back down to retest the mid-December lows, and

    (2) now Li Gang has made it clear that Beijing is realizing they need to protect Macau's gaming franchise/revenue because they have belated figured out all they are doing now (i.e., having culled out the corrupt politicians that stole PRC money and conducted illicit activity incl gaming) is making it easy for places like Manila, South Korea, Australia and the less developed places in Southeast Asia to grab that business.

    As even the Diawa analyst has said a few times, the chinese whales are going to gamble in one place or another... good to see Beijing figuring it out now.

  • squeezetracker squeezetracker Mar 11, 2015 12:19 PM Flag

    LOL...

    Shirley Mason, on at least three of her "periodicals" posting old news, wants to make sure the 17 people owning maybe 100k shares reading here know that political enemies of Xi Jinping that have not already left China (roof jumpers, executed/imprisoned last year, or absconded with illicit funds) are going to be pursued by Beijing security measures, especially if they steal more funds and try to gamble with them in macau or anywhere else. BFD and not even news.

    The cacaphony of blithering nonsense here is ridiculous to be sure.

    And still the big, quality, rules compliant VIP tours continue to carry ~75% of peak VIP into macau every week, and VIP play in Macau matters less to MPEL than any of the other companies, all of which are trading at washout EV valuations on this year's washed out estimates.

    I wonder if a total of 2k shares have sold out shares based on this blithering since the last retest and sharp reversal from $21 on jan 20 back to $28+ 30 days later... and now Feb, the "worst" comp yoy is behind the macau names.
