Analyst’s comments spurt Las Vegas Sands’ shares

Forbes is running an Associated Press story saying Las Vegas Sands Corp.'s flagging shares got a boost today after an analyst said the casino operator's current stock price does not reflect its potential for growth in Macau and other international markets.

Shares of Las Vegas Sands, which owns, the Venetian and the Palazza mega resort-casinos on the Las Vegas Strip, jumped $4.70, or 12.2 percent, to $43.28 in afternoon trading. During the past 52 weeks, the stock has dropped from a high of $148.76 in October 2007 to a low of $30.56 last week, the story said.
