LVS and Wynn Seeing Growth and Promising Future

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Investors and Casino operators have been full of fear over the last year as they saw their stocks go from a giant net worth to numbers so low that they aren’t even worth mentioning. But it seems that things are turning around. The casino and hotel companies LVS (Las Vegas Sands) and the Wynn Resorts are both reporting growth in numbers and projected growth for the year to come.

The casino companies are doing better in the last quarter than they have been in recent times. The last year was very troubling, not only for these casinos but also for all of Las Vegas and the hotels and casinos that are located there. The whole world seemed to be feeling the recession but no one as much as those that counted on travel and tourism.

Forecasters are putting a buy recommendation on both stocks and saying that they expect the stocks to perform quite well for the rest of the year and moving forward. There are plenty of investors that lost a ton of money when these stocks crashed. They LVS stock was over $130 at one point just about 18 months ago and is now at an amount just over $13. This isn’t even that bad considering that it was under the $2 mark just a few months ago.

There are always people that dream of celebrating their twenty first birthdays in style in Las Vegas. Well this is completely normal for celebrities and children of the celebrities as well. Rumer Willis, who is the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore got to do just that this weekend as she turned 21 in Las Vegas.

The 21 year old actress brought in her birthday as many only dream of doing surround by 55 guests at the TAO nightclub in Las Vegas at the Venetian hotel. The entire party was sectioned off in a very private VIP area where only guests and waiters/waitresses were permitted to pass.

The party included many celebrities and friends and family. Ashton Kutcher who is the husband to actress Demi Moore was there front and center along with many others that are surely to be considered A-list.

The party was a great success and the guests, including the birthday girl did not depart the club until 4am. Needless to say they were one of the last groups to leave.

Apparently the family had quite a divine weekend of entertaining all around as Rumer enjoyed many endless hours of shopping throughout all the great shops that the Las Vegas malls have to offer. She spent the weekend in a penthouse suite and was waited on hand and foot as a 21 year old princess that she is.

While you may not be able to afford exactly this type of party for yourself you may be able to do something just as fun the next time you’re in Vegas too!
