I like the prospects of companies like this which cater to the high end of clients, under current conditions. Be careful with this stock however, as accounting rules are likely to change next year which may cause it to plunge. Be wary.

This Hotel management group has found its niche. Its high end hotels are back over the 90% occupancy level and now that the economy is starting to show life this can be a great stretch for this business. Also since Sept 11 think of how much the population has grown but think of how many new luxury hotels have been built ? Its time to grow.

Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide just does not have what it takes to have such a high P/E ratio. Its current P/ E of 47
suggests a high growth company with year to year earnings growth expectations of 40% or so. But that is not the case with HOT now. And the short interest of 13 Million shares indicate the beginnings of this revaluation.

HOTS expects to see earnings in a range of 93 cents and $1.05 per share or, a full year- forward P/E of roughly 47. This expectation is despite the continued softness, if not down right weakness, expected with rising unemployment and rising tax burdens. HOT caters to the expense account traveler--an increasingly scarce creature in today's world. The next two quarters look especially challenging with HOT's institutional holders scrutinizing the numbers. HOT has alot of room to fall once these unforgiving investors start to sell.

Tourism everywhere is dropping off at double digit rates. A combination of recession fears and the BP oil spill are causing record vacancies. Starwood is a dog stock by any measure. P/E of 357, LT Debt/Equity of 162, current ratio 0.74, and my favorite, interest coverage of 0.11. They are earning 11% of what they need to pay off the interest on their boatload of debt. See you in bankruptcy court Starwood.

This junk stock is maintained the current price by handfull institutions. They are buying their own stock to raise the price. Not many buyers exist. The daily price is reflecting what these institutions are spending to keep up the current price range for about 2M shares top.
<br />&lt;br /&gt;Consider who wants to buy super over price stock, NO ONE.
<br />&lt;br /&gt;Also consider Starwood has over $4B debt and its earning capacity is $100M per quater at best. How long it will take to pay back? It is about 40 quaters.
<br />&lt;br /&gt;Somehow these institutions have to sell some time. So they will keep the artificiallyl price high ay ridicurous price until dumping.
<br />&lt;br /&gt;So if you can time their selling, you should buy this stock. It is dangerous, because the current price is over and super over priced, almost junk status, but you will make money until crash.
<br />&lt;br /&gt;This stock is not for investing, but trading or gambling.
<br />&lt;br /&gt;
<br />&lt;br /&gt;Go for it.

Currently overpriced. Many people are still taking "staycations" until the economy - especially jobs - recovers.

In the excitement of a rebounding economy, this stock has been now moved far beyond any reasonable value. Though it might still grow, it should underperform the S&P in the near future, as cooler heads prevail.

Woo!! P/E over 100, true junk stock. Are anyone want to buy this junk now and sit on many years, while taking many down side risk as well as re-occurance of major down turn?

Amazing, please buy more and loose all your asset. For sure some one is manipulating this stock for quick profit and hope get caught as crime. It is sooo few valume trasaction, that also indicates junk status. Let's watch how this works out. No sales, many empty rooms, funny Holding Company to engineer the financial figure...

Soon P/E 150 and so on, then crash in earthquake.

It's a good short squeeze stock.

Hot business is managing by cost control. The business as well as pleasure trip is still less than 50% of 5 years ago. Consequently, the hotel like Starwood are discounting heavy and still not get occupancy rate of more than 40%. How long this goes on? The hotel is forced to issue more stock for operating expenses. Starwood like all other hotels is running short of cash. Besides if one terroristic attack occurs, the business is very much end for long time. The war against terrorists are on going and never end. The Western hotel like Westin, Sheraton are good target by them. Consider where Starwood can go from here. Is there more room for financial improvement, more numbers of hotels? NO Absoutely not. It is where is now is the best place. So no improvement financially nor business ebvironment, the investment to this hotel is waste of maoney. The stock is about $25 at best. The second recession will wipe out almost all equity. I can not imagin why any one wants to invest on this stock. If not improved within a year, this is bankruptcy candidate.

Stock is worth 1/3 of current value. The institution is hiking up the price. The hotel business is very poor at best. The ocupancy rate is less than 1/3 over all. The hotel usage is the last thing in recovery economy. Also, there are Starwood Holding company that transfer teh huge loss between HOT and this. This is how this company manipulate the book. The true value is about $13.00 at best.
