NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Wynn Resorts (WYNN) - Get Report stock is higher by 4.43% to $61.79 in mid-morning trading on Monday, after CEO Steve Wynn upped his stake in the casino operator.

Between January 20 and 22, Wynn bought $31.9 million worth of shares at an average price of $55.62, Barron's reported.

The purchase follows an earlier trade in which Wynn bought $63.9 million worth of stocks at an average price of $63.61 between December 4 and 8, Barron's added.

The CEO now owns 11.7 million shares for an 11.6% stake in the company. 

"The shares owned by Mr. and Ms. Wynn are subject to a shareholder agreement which requires the shares to be voted together and puts limits on divestitures," Bernstein Research noted, according to Barron's. 

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates the stock as a "hold" with a ratings score of C-.

TheStreet Recommends

Wynn's strengths such as its expanding profit margins over time are countered by weaknesses including deteriorating net income, weak operating cash flow and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.
