"We believe mass trends remained strong during the week and VIP roll improved but VIP revenues were impacted by below average win rate," the analysts wrote. "We further believe Galaxy and MGM may have held low during the week." The analysts noted that July gaming revenue from Macau could be down between -5% and -2% from the year-ago month, compared to a consensus range of -7% to flat.

TheStreet Ratings team rates MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL as a Hold with a ratings score of C+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL (MGM) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed -- some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance and impressive record of earnings per share growth.
