Macau continues to outperform, according to Sterne Agee analyst David Bain, which is positive for gaming companies that operate there including: Melco Crown Entertainment Limited (NASDAQ: MPEL), Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS), MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) and Wynn Resorts Ltd. (NASDAQ: WYNN).

"According to our checks, Macau table-only gross gaming revenue (“GGR”) is MOP17.6b through March 17," Bain said. "Including slots, the GGR run-rate for March is MOP33.3b or +~32% YoY. We are raising our March YoY estimate to +20% YoY (MOP30.0b) from +14%, and note our March estimate is ~6% higher than Macau’s all-time monthly record set in December of last year."

MPEL remains our top idea. Applying a peer multiple to the stock would suggest price over ~$28 per share.
