Global Political Challenges Affect Gaming Stocks

The U.S. election has gotten most of the domestic headlines, but it's a leadership change in China that will most impact gaming stocks going forward. Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS  ) , Wynn Resorts (Nasdaq: WYNN  ) ,  Melco Crown (Nasdaq: MPEL  ) , and even MGM Resorts (NYSE: MGM  ) all count on Macau and by extension China's VIP gamblers for a large portion of their business. But what most people don't know is that much of the VIP business is driven by junkets, which provide a way for wealthy Chinese to get money out of China. If China's new government tries to crack down on the flow of funds out of China through Macau or other corrupt practices that are often tied to Macau, it could affect gaming revenue going forward.
