15:56 EDTHOTStarwood could be worth $103/share in buyout, says SunTrust
SunTrust says the FTC's move to grant early termination notice on the potential Senator Global Opportunity Offshore Fund, Starwood deal could be driving some takeover speculation in the name. The firm sees Wyndham (WYN) as the most likely acquirer, and estimates that Starwood (HOT) could be worth $103 in a takeout scenario. SunTrust questions whether the speculation is "all smoke and no fire," however, and keeps a Neutral rating on the stock with an $85 price target.

07:04 EDTHOTStarwood downgraded to Neutral from Buy at SunTrust
SunTrust's industry checks indicate significant weakness in forward bookings due to FX impact on international tourism, lower oil prices, and increased supply. The firm said companies with the most exposure to New York City, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Miami, Seattle, and Houston have the most risk. Additionally, SunTrust said Q2-Q3 U.S. Upper Upscale RevPAR tracking is only tracking to the low-end of the +4-6% range. Due to valuation and higher exposure to luxury and upper-upscale segment, SunTrust downgraded Starwood to Neutral and maintained its $85 price target.
