Considering the way hotel stocks react to various economic news, the sector may not be an advisable investment in the current situation. With Hyatt (NYSE:H) down over 3% today, it might be safer and more profitable to invest in REITs according to Jack Hough, of the WSJ, who recommends that investors consider well-managed REITs as an alternative to investing in hotels.
According to Hough, though mortgage rates are at historic lows, and the Shiller Home Index is down nearly a third in five years, bargain hunting is getting better and better. And looking at REITs, which have declined nearly 19% since July (opposite 14% for the S&P 500), a very real opportunity presents itself.
