Wynn Resorts (WYNN) represents one of the better buying opportunities in the markets right now. Wynn Resorts is now 38.7% off its 52-week high of $172.58. The stock is currently trading at $105.65/share and is right near its 52-week low. This stock should be trading above $140.00/share and I will not be surprised to see it doing just that in a short time-frame. If the stock should move below $100.00/share I would highly recommend buying the stock or call options in quantity to take advantage of the upswing that will come.

Even the lowest estimates have Wynn Resorts trading much higher than its current price. I expect to see this stock continue to move higher. Here is a closer look at Wynn Resorts' past earnings-per-share and future estimates:

There has been some talk that Wynn Resorts is looking into building a casino in Massachusetts.

Among all gambling stocks, Wynn Resorts has the most upside potential, ahead of Ls Vegas Sands (LVS), MGM Resorts (MGM), and Melco Crown Enternatiment (MPEL).

Currently, I like the June 2012 $120.00 strike price call options. I can easily see Wynn Resorts trading above $150.00/share by this time. The current bid/ask spread for the $120.00 strike price is $8.80 - $9.10.

As recently as November 2, 2011, Wynn Resorts was trading at $136.70/share. Wynn Resorts has really been beaten down since the beginning of December. It will rebound soon.
