Zacks’ analyst wrote, “MGM Resorts’ fourth-quarter 2012 adjusted loss of $0.23 per share was in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate but wider than the prior-year quarter’s loss of $0.21 per share. In the quarter, the company’s total revenues remained flat year over year at $2.3 billon, although its MGM China segment witnessed a 2.0% annual rise in its revenues to $731.0 million, owing to the rise in the volume of table games as well as slots, respectively. Limited supply in the Las Vegas market, improving trends at CityCenter and a moderate pickup in visits in some domestic properties all bode well for the company. However, a huge portion of debt in its balance sheet, stiff competition in Macau and overall slowdown in China remain causes of concern. Hence, we maintain our Neutral rating on the stock.”
