Las Vegas Sands Fourth Quarter Earnings: Really that Great?

In response to the news articles surrounding Las Vegas Sands' Fourth Quarter Earnings Report, I would like a chance to discuss the speculation and conversations that have occurred - resulting in a decent fall in stock value over the past couple of days. The article "Investors Leave Las Vegas Sands" on BusinessWeek.com discusses the earnings report and has made some interesting speculation surrounding the company. The article mainly describes the outlook for gaming in Macau, but suggests that many stockholders sold their shares because of not a significant increase in Macau gaming revenues. LVS earnings report stated that the company had a year over year increase of 3.3% in Macau and 72.9% in Las Vegas. This is showing that the potential that many were expecting did not show up. Many people might have been expecting a much higher increase in Macau such as 10-20% maybe more. Many people are speculating that the Las Vegas earnings is a fluke and 72.9% is really high and will not happen again, so all in all the earnings really did not look good, despite the record operating income levels. Though, the earnings may not have looked good once analysts start poking around, remember that the stock has risen from speculation and Las Vegas Sands still has many more resorts here under development. These resorts could provide a substantial boost to the tourism in Macau along with the many dollars left on the gaming tables. Lastly the first quarter earnings report should look much better for LVS, since it is reporting the strongest time of year in Macau with the Chinese New Year and other Asian activities.

happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my
own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
