NEW YORK — Wynn Resorts says its second-quarter earnings rose from the same quarter last year, which was weighed down by a hefty charge. But revenue fell on lower gambling at its operations in both Las Vegas and the Asian gambling center of Macau.
The Las Vegas-based company earned $138.1 million, or $1.37 per share, compared with $122 million, or 97 cents per share, a year earlier.
Revenue fell to $1.25 billion from $1.37 billion a year ago.
The results fell well below Wall Street's forecast. Analysts polled by FactSet expected $1.51 per share on revenue of $1.34 billion.
Wynn Resorts Ltd. said Tuesday its revenue fell 7 percent in Macau and nearly 12 percent in Las Vegas, showing that more people are shying away from spending extra money in a still-shaky economy.
