The temporary extension of casino licenses in Macau did not bring about much cheer in the shares of Las Vegas Sands stock (NYSE: LVS) as unfavorable macroeconomic events weighed on broader markets. After observing a deep contraction in April 2020, LVS stock fell to similar lows in August 2021 and December 2021. Geopolitical tension between the U.S., Russia, and China is the key setback for companies operating across multiple geographies. Notably, Sands has $14.5 billion of long-term debt on its balance sheet with almost 50% related to the construction, renovation, and other financing activities in Macau. Given the strong growth in Macau’s mass gaming business in recent years and Sands’ leadership in the segment, Trefis believes that investors have been too pessimistic on the stock. Per our machine learning engine which analyzes historical stock price movements, LVS stock has a 63% chance of a rise over the next month (21 trading days).
