Genting Singapore Shares Saw High Opening

Following the report's release last Friday, Genting Singapore shares saw an uptick in their opening. They traded as high as 94 cents, marking a 6.21% increase over last Friday's closing price.

As we have posited for more than a year now, Genting Singapore benefited from the en masse return of Chinese visitors. Adjusted for normal VIP win rate, we expect 2Q24 to be seasonally slower but 3Q24 and 4Q24 to be seasonally stronger.
