MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM) reported a smaller-than-expected loss and booming revenue growth when it released second quarter results in early August. For this quarter, consensus calls for a loss of $0.07 per share, improving substantially from a loss per share of $1.08 in the challenging year-ago period. Revenue is forecast to soar 115% from the same period a year earlier to $2.43 billion, driven by a recovery in its core business and strong growth in its sports-betting unit.
The biggest casino and hotel operator on the Las Vegas Strip with about a dozen properties, including the Bellagio, Mandalay Bay, and MGM Grand, MGM has been busy making moves to boost its online sports-betting offering, launching its BetMGM app in several states in the past year.
