    Good chat about P/CF (yes, it is a better proxy in gaming than P/E is), but the "risk tolerance" headline was a bit removed from your nomanclature.

    A bit topical for the "brief chat" that it was, but not without a couple of head-scratchers.

    For example, the reference to the impact on LVS "as long as mass market growth remains above 15%"...

    Travis, it's a lot closer to 30% currently than it is 15% and has been for quite awhile.

    Similarly, the notion of "slower growth on Cotai" would fly in the face of the ongoing migration of share from the peninsula to cotai... especially in light of Sand's reported massive 34% growth in visitation in it's cotai resorts for july...

    ... it would be nice that such a suggestion have just a scintilla of evidence before you shove it out there as some kind of current or emerging trend.

    Otherwise, the contrasts of ratios for the 4 companies was useful for valuation vs the 1 or 2 stabs at discounted future cash flows that you hinted at...

    ... but the "all about risk tolerance" verbage in the title had me braced for a substantially different discussion in the clip.
