While it is surely nice to enjoy all the swimming pools and the luxurious areas around the hotels, it is also a little hard to visit the grand canyon and other Vegas landmarks because of the extreme heat that had hit the city lately.

Las Vegas Sands Experiencing Great Numbers

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

You probably thinking that you have been reading about Las Vegas Sands or LVS quite a bit lately, well that is because it has been quite the news worthy topic in the last few months. The LVS stock has seen its low of lows hitting rock bottom stock prices just over the one dollar mark, but then seemingly out of nowhere, the stock bounced back and is now almost over twenty dollars.

The financial analysts are a bit shocked and say that they predict the stock will go to at least forty dollars in the near future. The company seems to be performing better overall and has had success in getting some debt rescue. The economy is picking up as well which means more business for companies such as LVS. And the operations in Macau are on route to be moving smoothly also.

So what does this all mean for investors? Well buying some shares of the LVS stock and its competitors may not be such a bad idea. The company is promising success and pushing forward without looking back at all. They have also learned from several lavish mistakes that were made about a year ago and predicting that the same or a similar situation won’t happen in the near future. Not if they can help it.

This is also good news for the other companies in the same industry, MGM is likely to pick up some speed, especially once they come to the completion of the city center project which has been in the air for so long now. And overall good news for almost all the companies in question.
