Tiny profit margins, terrible return on capital and extreme valuation. The company would have to increase its free cash flow tenfold just to make this valuation reasonable. That's not going to happen any time soon.

Terminally loss making, high debt, high RSI, low dividend, shrinking revenue. Pretty much any bad sign is there in abundance.

I believe the travel industry is in for a significant boost in the coming years as the economy rebounds and people get back to work

Real Estate is doing bad and the travel industry is slow. so the growth in the hotel industry is also slow.

Good company in a decent industry paying a decent yield - expecting it to hold up well regardless of which direction the economy/markets go.

Searching for some three star stocks I could go long on, and I found this company, seems like the stock has taken a bit of a thumping, but now it sports a very nice 4.5% dividend, not to mention they stand to benefit from foreign visitors. Look for this one to rebound and rebound strong once recession fears pass.

Increased leisure time; disposable income; aging population are all pointing towards a trend upwards for Hotels/Resorts.

Host Hotels and Resorts, Inc. (HST) is a hotel REIT (real estate investment trust) company, which is engaged in the ownership, acquisition, and redevelopment of hotel properties. The Group owns 128 luxury and upper upscale hotel properties in 27 states that are concentrated primarily in central business districts of major cities, airport areas and resort/conference destinations. In addition, HST maintains an ownership interest in a European joint venture, which owns 7 additional properties.

The US lodging industry has rebounded after the downturn from 2000 to 2003 caused by 9/11 attacks that plummeted travel industry and left hotels half empty. Since then, the industry is witnessing higher occupancy rate led by recovery in travel industry and supply constraint. For 2006, industry occupancy increased by 0.5% to 63.4%, average room rate increased 7% to $97.31 and revenue per available room (RevPAR) gained 7.5% to $61.69.

Although, the industry room supply increased 0.6% in 2006, but demand (roomnights sold) gained by 1.1% and as a result room revenue increased by 8.1% to $100 billion. During 2007, the industry outlook remains bright as demand among all travelers remains high, and bookings for conferences and meetings continue to increase. Endorsing the same, RevPar is expected to grow by around 6% in the coming year.

For 2007, the company has guided RevPAR growth of 6 to 8%, increase in special corporate rate in the range of 8-10%, new supply around 1%. Combined with healthy demand, HSTs portfolio is well positioned to deliver another strong year of earnings and EBITDA growth. The company is also working to enhance its hotels portfolio, which is evident by its recent acquisition of a resort hotel. With robust booking expectation and positive industry synergies, HST makes a good investment proposition.
