Wynn (NASDAQ:WYNN) stock has declined by roughly 5% over the past month (about 21 trading days) compared to the S&P 500 which remains down by 11% over the same period. While the broader markets have been hurt by the Fed’s continued rate hikes and concerns of a U.S. recession, Wynn has been a relative outperformer as investors increasingly bet that the company’s Macau business could pick up as Covid-19 restrictions are eased. Wynn’s Macau operations accounted for roughly 70% of the company’s 2019 pre-pandemic revenue, and this number fell to a mere 13% of total revenue over the most recent quarter, amid travel restrictions and China’s stringent zero-Covid policy, which led to a drastic decline in tourist inflows into the region.  However, things could finally start looking up. Last week, there were reports that China is supporting Hong Kong’s plan to ease Covid restrictions and this is making investors hopeful that Macau, another special administrative region like Hong Kong, could also see a recovery.

Given that WYNN stock is down 5% over the last month, will it continue its downward trajectory, or is a recovery imminent?
