What Investors Need to Know: McDonald's, FedEx vs. UPS, and a Shake-Up in Chinese Gaming

The following video is from Monday's Market Foolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Bill Barker and Tim Hanson, discusses the top business and investing stories.

In today's installment, the analysts discuss McDonald's (NYSE: MCD  ) release of some positive Dow-driving information, and how FedEx (NYSE: FDX  ) and UPS (NYSE: UPS  ) demand is going up but share prices aren't. We also hear about the coming Chinese crackdown on corruption in the junket business, and what it will do to gaming in Macau.

For many companies, successfully capitalizing on a booming Chinese economy is like winning the jackpot. That's the case for gaming company Las Vegas Sands, which made a big bet on Macau gaming about a decade ago that's paid off in spades. The company is now looking to spread its empire further, but will it be able to replicate its prior successes? Learn about all these opportunities, and the risks they pose, in our brand-new premium report on Las Vegas Sands. We're providing a full year of analyst updates to go with it, so make sure to claim your copy today by clicking here.

    What Investor's Need To Know:

    This is about the fourth or fifth article Crappy Fool has done on Chinese "cracking" down on gaming in Macau.

    What they don't tell you is that the "junket" gamblers are a FRACTION of the gamblers throwing up cash in Macau. Of the 500,000 people that passed through the new Cotai Hotel LVS recently opened, maybe 920 of them were "junket" gamblers. LVS and other U.S. Gaming companies provide huge revenue and employment for the Chinese government. Remember, gamblers in China are taxed at about 50% of what they make. Big revenue for the commies. The recent college graduates at Motley Fool should do more homework. LVS and other U.S. Gaming companies will continue to experience very large earnings growth from Macua, as reported by Credit Suisse yesterday when they restated/raised November and December's earnings growth by almost 50%.

    IN ONE MONTH FOLKS~~~~~~~50%.

    Motley Fool at leat got the "Fool" part right.

    What does Macau possibly have to do with any of the content in this article.
