Top 5 Companies in the Hotels, Resorts & Cruise Lines Industry With the Lowest Projected Earnings Growth (STAY, WYN, CCL, MAR, VAC)

By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Hotels, Resorts & Cruise Lines industry with the lowest projected earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (current fiscal year estimated vs. last year actual) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Extended Stay Am ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 5.5%. Wyndham Worldwid is next with a projected earnings growth of 7.6%. Carnival Corp ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 7.8%.

Marriott Intl-A follows with a projected earnings growth of 10.8%, and Marriott Vacatio rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 11.8%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Marriott Vacatio on July 5th, 2017 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $115.51. Since that call, shares of Marriott Vacatio have fallen 3.9%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
