Las Vegas Sands soars after talks with Singapore government

he Singapore Tourism Board said it’s seeking to “facilitate the success’’ of the project in downtown Singapore.

Las Vegas Sands rose us$ 4.38, or 88 %, to us$ 9.33 in New York Stock Exchange composite trading. It gained 92 % in Thursday, the biggest intraday increase since the Las Vegas-based company’s 2004 initial stock sale.
