Factors to Note

Wynn Resorts second-quarter results are likely to reflect the significant impact of the coronavirus pandemic on its operations. Even though the company has resumed operations at majority of its gaming properties, dismal traffic due to social-distancing protocols might have negatively impacted the to-be-reported quarter’s performance. Although casinos have been opened in Macau from Mar 20, travel restrictions and limited number of tables have been hurting the company.

Dismal performance at Encore Boston Harbor, Wynn Palace, Wynn Macau, Las Vegas operations and Encore Boston Harbor may have significantly affected the second-quarter performance. Moreover, increase in cash burn owing to the coronavirus is likely to get reflected in the to-be-reported quarter’s results.
