Shares of casino operators were climbing higher during mid-morning trading on Monday after the gaming-focused investment bank Union Gaming Group LLC published a bullish note on the outlook for Macau.

Union Gaming Group's positive outlook on the region has propelled the shares of Wynn Resorts (WYNN) - Get Wynn Resorts, Limited Report Las Vegas Sands (LVS) - Get Las Vegas Sands Corp. Report and MGM Resorts International (MGM) - Get MGM Resorts International Report .
Shares of Wynn were spiking over 3%, while shares of both MGM and LVS were higher by nearly 1% during mid-morning trading on Monday.
