After the company conducted checks, Sterne Agee is convinced that Macau’s gross gaming revenue has the potential to increase only 1 percent year-over-year, compared to the consensus of 5 to 10 percent gains.

The firm does believe that its February estimate is likely conservative, and it still thinks that Macau’s fundamentals are positive. Sterne Agee keeps its Buy rating on the stock.

Deutsche predicts that DaVita will navigate through the payment changes, and the firm recommends buying the stock today on weakness.
