I think that this company is looking at a hard road ahead. With everyone cutting back on travel and even just minor indulgences, I don't see growth in this market at all in the next few years. Maybe if they were selling tents or facilitating house swaps, then I could see growth, but hotels are already feeling a pinch and it is going to get tighter. I see too many hotels thinking that a remodel is giong to improve profits when what they need is to keep the rooms clean and the staff friendly. The hotel industry suffers from a clear failure to maintain what they have as opposed to going out to buy new. This outlook is going to hurt them as the cost of recent remodels will not be countered by an increase in business. I believe any investment in hotel properties is a bad choice in this market and with the current problems faced by any company trying to find good customer service employees.

A steady and growing balance sheet. 8.3% dividend. Twenty-two new properties this year. Increases in profits from existing hotels. And right now it's pretty cheap. I like having a REIT for a long term retirement stock because the heavy tax breaks the companies recieve for giving most of their proceeds back to the shareholders maximize the benefits to John Doe.

They have great cash flow, and indepently managed means someone is actually "at the wheel, awake" possible investment.

They own a bunch of cheap hotels (read: the kind you pull off the road and check into, but don't mind paying $80-100 a night for in a semi-rural area because they are well-branded).

Additionally, there is a recent history of major stock price increase, despite the general beatdown of REITs this summer. Perhaps this is because SPPR's hotels tend to be in the south and midwest - regions that, according to a recent "Time Magazine" article, weren't hit nearly as hard by the real estate bubble bursting.

And even if the price isn't immediately going to keep skyrocketing, the 6.8% yield will keep me patient and the $125M market cap lets me know there is plenty of room for this baby to run.

Market cap on this reit is a bit low for my liking, but I like the investments they're concentrating in. I don't see anything spectacular happening in the short run, but I think there's room for good solid growth out there, IF things are managed well.

A little hit on the price as of recent really makes this stock a bargain. Especially considering it's dividend rate.

Unsexy REIT buying discount motels. These little motels just pump out cash. In a world of REITs gone nuts these guys are still a pretty good value, with a decent yield. Classic small cap ignored by Wall Street (I've actually met them out in Norfolk!).
