Short Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ:WYNN) Maintained
Our Short was issued on Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ:WYNN) when the stock was trading near $99.00 and although the stock is up today, we maintain that position because our downside price target has not been reached. Our recommendation was issued through Reuters, First Call, Zacks Institutional Research, and of course to our clients specifically (subscribe). .
Our position is that earnings results from win are sporadic, revenues have declined and earnings have declined since there 2013 Q4 - 2014 Q1 peaks, and meaningful earnings contractions are expected this year. We also recognize that a bounce back is expected next year, so earnings recovery is expected in 2017 to offset the 2016 decline, but that recovery is about 1.5 years away, if it happens it will neutralize the declines in 2016 only, and there's plenty of room for the stock to fall between then and now.
More importantly, we also believe that investors will shy away from unreliable companies and we believe that the sporadic results offered by WYNN are indeed unreliable. This is premised on our longer-term macroeconomic observations, called The Investment Rate, and that tells us that the risk of a material market decline is high, the amount of new money available to be invested into the stock market is very low, and as a result multiple contractions can come at any time.
In addition, companies that are richly valued are likely to come down more than others in an environment where overall market multiples contract, and we believe WYNN is a stock that is vulnerable to declines based not only on overall market pressures but also on the trajectory of earnings and revenue accordingly.
Our downside target has not yet been reached.
