Investors Bet on Vegas as Three Gaming Stocks Look Up


Casino stocks have been winners over the past five trading days, in advance of upcoming earnings reports. Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS) (its Las Vegas property pictured) has risen more than 15%, and MGM Mirage (MGM) and Wynn Resorts (WYNN) were up 5%. And while the breakaway success of gaming in Macau has played a major role in escalations in the past, analysts now think Vegas itself is starting to feel a positive impact.
