Deutsche Bank analysts note the weakness in Wynn’s stock price after the announcement of the 3Q23 earnings results, despite mass table drop up some 24 percent compared to pre-COVID levels.
“Macau came in lighter than expected on a headline EBITDA basis, and operating expenses crept up a bit, in conjunction with programming and non-gaming elements. Wynn’s management also noted the lag in the recovery on the peninsula was not well-received.”
Meanwhile, Macau mass drop in October was up 24 percent, relative to October 2019, a month in which Wynn did $4 million per day in property EBITDA.
According to CBRE Securities, Wynn Macau recorded adjusted property EBITDA of $255 million in 3Q23. The figure represents 85 percent of pre-COVID levels.
At the same time, the company’s mass table drop has exceeded 3Q19 levels by 19 percent, and direct VIP turnover was 13 percent ahead of the same quarter in 2019.
Regarding the non-gaming side, the investment research firm notes that tenant retail sales were 24 percent above 3Q19, and hotel revenue was up 20 percent. Looking into 4Q23, “mass market hold normalized in October, and volumes accelerated, with mass drop 24 percent above October 2019.” Property EBITDA in the month was slightly below October 2019.
