SOUNDBITE: AMG MANAGERS PICTET INTERNATIONAL FUND PORTFOLIO MANAGER, BEN BENECHE, (ENGLISH) SAYING: "It's really a case of how much more can go right, It feels like right now, globally, it's very much a "Goldilocks"-type scenario.

That had investors bidding up shares of Wynn Resorts, Melco Resorts & Entertainment and Las Vegas Sands.

Shares of
