LONDON, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The services sector in the U.S. benefited from an improvement in the economy at the start of this year. However, recent data suggests that the recovery in the U.S. economy has stalled. This is not a good sign for the services sector. Major airlines such as US Airways Group Inc. (NYSE: LCC) and United Continental Holdings Inc. (NYSE: UAL), which faced significant challenges due to economic uncertainties over the past few years, will be hoping for a rebound in economic activity. Resorts and casino operators Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd. (ADR) (NASDAQ: MPEL) and Boyd Gaming Corporation (NYSE: BYD) will also face challenges if the economy continues to weaken. The services sector ended mostly lower on Thursday, tracking losses in the broad market, which came under pressure following some disappointing economic data. StockCall has released full comprehensive research on LCC, UAL, MPEL, and BYD and these free technical analyses can be downloaded by signing up at
