Las Vegas Sands: Outlook Can Only Get Better From Here

LVS is a popular ticker to follow, and it is widely touted on Seeking Alpha. Despite this, the stock is down for the year in correction territory. While I had been neutral on this company for a while, I do see a buy case emerging now. China's Covid-19 lockdown response has plagued the sector, and a market selloff. With this weakness comes opportunity. As Macao and China re-open, LVS is sure to benefit. Further, the company is exploring other locations in Asia and in the U.S., after exiting Las Vegas.
