10:48 EDTWYN, HOT, MAR, HLT, H, CHH, IHGHotels rise after Hyatt results beat expectations
The shares of a number of hotel chains are climbing after one of the companies in the sector, Hyatt Hotels (H), reported significantly stronger than expected results. WHAT'S NEW: Hyatt's fourth quarter earnings per share, excluding some items, came in at 32c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of 20c. The company's revenue was slightly higher than expected. Its revenue per available room, or RevPAR, rose 6.2% versus the fourth quarter of 2012. "Looking ahead, we expect healthy occupancy levels in the U.S. to support increasing strength in room prices," said Hyatt CEO Mark Hoplamazian in a statement. WHAT'S NOTABLE: UBS upgraded Starwood (HOT) to Buy from Neutral in a note to investors earlier today, after the stock fell yesterday in response to the company's decision not to buy back any shares last quarter. The firm expects the company to be able to buy back shares going forward and it predicts that strength in North America, asset sales, and RevPAR gains in China will drive the stock higher. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Hyatt jumped 5.6% to $52.35, Starwood advanced 2.6% to $77.34, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) advanced 1.6% to $33.50, and Marriott (MAR) gained 1% to $50.65. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the space include Choice Hotels (CHH), Hilton Worldwide (HLT), and Wyndham (WYN).
