Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS): Current Price $52.31
A smoking ban that came into effect this month at public places in Macau allows casinos to permit smoking in only 50% of the total gaming floor area. Apprehensions that this partial ban could adversely affect gambling revenue appear to have been belied because Average Daily Table Revenue over the past week clocked HK$775 million, which matched revenues last week, but was lower than the first two weeks of the month. The decline could also have been triggered by the pre-Chinese New Year timing. This, taken with a likely resurgence in traffic during the Chinese New Year, could favorably affect the fortunes of casino companies having operations in Macau, such as Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ:MPEL), Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS), MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN).
