MGM Mirage sees growth in weak gaming market

Reuter writes:
MGM Mirage (MGM.N: Quote, Profile, Research), the world's second-largest casino company, expects its earnings to rise in 2008 despite the softening U.S. economy which will likely drag down the gaming industry as a whole, its chief operating officer told Reuters on Wednesday.

"I think the industry is certainly going to be down when you add it all up in '08," Jim Murren, the COO and president, said in a telephone interview. "I think, however, we're going to be up in earnings."
