Analyze This: Las Vegas Sands

The Fast traders are watching the action in Las Vegas Sands after Robin Farley of UBS raised the stock to a ‘Buy.’

According to Farley, Las Vegas Sands' stock is now factoring in significant downside risk from federal investigations.

As you may know, The Department of Justice and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating Sands' compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which prohibits U.S. companies from making improper payments to foreign officials.

"While it could be some time before a formal conclusion, near term, we do not expect any impact on day-to-day operations in Singapore or Las Vegas," she wrote.

Farley also said the perceived risk has created a buying opportunity for investors. She lifted Las Vegas Sands' rating to "Buy" from "Neutral" and maintained her $51 price target.
