(CNN) - The Las Vegas shooting that left 58 people dead and almost 500 injured outside Mandalay Bay doesn't seem to be affecting tourism. Casino mogul Steve Wynn told investors that his properties have not seen a measurable difference since the tragedy.

In fact, profits at Wynn Resorts topped Wall Street forecasts. It's all thanks to solid sales in Las Vegas and Macau, China, where the company also operates casinos.  Wynn says he's investing more in security since the shootings.

He also says all employees have been trained in the past two years. Competing casinos Las Vegas Sands, and Boyd Gaming also say tourism remains strong. 

Earnings from Caesars Entertainment and MGM, which owns Mandalay Bay, will be released early next month.
