MGM Resorts stock (NYSE: MGM) has gained about 19% over the last month (21 trading days) considerably outperforming the S&P 500 which remains up by about 9% over the same period. The recent rally is being driven by a couple of factors. Although the company’s Q3 2022 earnings came in below estimates, revenues expanded by a solid 26% versus last year, driven by a strong performance in Las Vegas, which remains the company’s principal market. While gambling activity has picked up in the strip as Covid-19 issues appear largely behind the U.S., MGM also benefited from its acquisition of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and Aria and Vdara. Moreover, recently China has eased certain Covid-19 restrictions, reducing quarantine times for tourists from other countries. This could help MGM’s Macau operations which have taken a considerable hit over the last two years, impacted by frequent lockdowns and travel restrictions.

However, now that MGM stock has seen a gain of about 19% over the last month, will it continue its upward trajectory in the near term, or is a decline imminent? Going by historical performance, there is a roughly equal chance of a rise or a decline in MGM stock over the next monthOut of 151 instances in the last ten years that MGM stock saw a twenty-one-day rise of 19% or more, 80 of them resulted in the stock rising over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days). This historical pattern reflects 80 out of 151, or a 53% chance of a rise in MGM stock over the coming month, implying a neutral near-term outlook for the stock.
