AFTER HOURS ACTION: LVS

Las Vegas Sands, the casino operator run by billionaire Sheldon Adelson, said on Wednesday its fourth-quarter net loss narrowed as strong gambling demand in Macau offset weakness in Las Vegas.

The results met analyst estimates -- which disappointed some investors -- and shares fell more than 4 percent in after hours trading.

What’s the trade?

I’m impressed by the strength in Macau and I’d play it with a long position in MPEL off the news, counsels Brian Kelly. Or look at CTRP.

CHART OF THE DAY: S&P 500

Technical analysis shows that the market tends to close higher on days when we have light volume.

What should you make of it?

China’s markets are closed this week, says Steve Grasso. I think we’re in for a rude awakening when it reopens.
