    After the bell on Wednesday July 25, Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) reported its earnings for 2Q2012.

    Sands earned $240.6 million, or 29 cents a share, on the period, down from $367.6 million, or 45 cents a share, in the same quarter of 2011. The company would have earned 44 cents a share, down from 54 cents a share. Revenue rose 10.1% to $2.58 billion. That was well below analysts' expectations of 60 cents a share on revenue of $2.77 billion.

    The subsequent sell-off in after hours, leaves the stock to a minimum close to 34.5. At the opening of July 26, reached a minimum lightly upper this number. Beginning from there, a rally until the close. Nevertheless, did not be able to surpassing the maximum of the day.

    Looking at weekly compression chart, we see a support area at 36 for almost two years, that it was violated today intraday. Although, closing above this support.

    Looking close at daily chart, we have better image.

    From a technical standpoint, the stock is in a decision area. If remains above 36 the stock price can rebound from this level, and if break this area would signal a bearish call with 36 now as resistance.

    Update: Last Friday, LVS opened above 36 and closed at 36.77.

    Looking forward, if Monday opens above 36 but not of 37, one possible strategy would be to buy a strangle, buying a call 37 and a put 36 for protection in both sides, other strategy would be, buy the stock with stop loss if close below 36, or just buy a call.
