Sands 3Q22 in line, recovery, timings, uncertain: Jefferies

Sands 3Q22 EBITDA loss was broadly in line with estimates but Macau recovery is still dependent on China’s COVID policy. The quarantine period for non-Mainland China inbound tourists continues to ease but still includes seven days of medical observation, which means Macau is still an unattractive overseas destination, Jefferies argues. The brokerage tweaked its Macau gaming revenue assumptions with 2022 GGR at 14 percent pre-pandemic levels.
