For the past two years, this has been an easy one to pick: Las Vegas Sands. The only gaming company with casinos in the world’s top three markets (Macau, Singapore and Las Vegas), it’s rebounded handily from its March 2008 sub-$2 low. The recent Macau slowdown, though, has some investors backing off. But with companies overly reliant on Las Vegas not faring much better, LVS is still a solid pick. Currently trading around $40, it’s been as high as $62 and as low as $36 over the past year.
