Wynn Resorts has a market cap of $12.44 billion and is part of the leisure industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 25.6, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 7% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are 13 analysts that rate Wynn Resorts a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and six rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Wynn Resorts as a buy. Among the primary strengths of the company is its expanding profit margins over time. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the positive front, Mecox Lane ( MCOX), up 23.8%, Best Buy ( BBY), up 16.1%, Conn's ( CONN), up 13.1%, and Liquidity Service ( LQDT), up 11.6%, were all gainers within the services sector with CVS Caremark ( CVS) being today's featured services sector leader.
