Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ: WYNN) disclosed today that Wynn Las Vegas transferred Wynn Golf, LLC to the parent, and with it $700 million in cash. According to analysts at Goldman Sachs, this cash could be used for a special dividend.

"While the company has not stated a direct use of this extra cash, given WYNN's track record and history, we would not be surprised if management returns that cash back to shareholders in the form of a special dividend," the firm said.

Goldman had expected the company to issue at least $400-$500 million in special dividends. However, with this extra cast, this gives them even more flexibility to issue a larger special. WYNN has historically paid a $4-$8 special dividend.

Goldman Sachs maintained their Buy rating and price target of $125 on Wynn.
