Big name hotels and a recovering balance sheet
REIT in High end hotels. playing it smart while things are tough, no hidden agendas just straight forward loses and small growth. Honesty, reits will pick up... eventually
FelCor Lodging Trust, Inc. (FCH)The Company operates as a real estate investment trust. Its business is conducted in one reportable segment, which is hospitality. FCH is down 39% from its 52W high, but up approx. 600% from its March 2009 low.Definitely, my kind of value play.
The cycle has bottomed, new equity is being added at good prices and ffo will increase by 100% over next two years
Too much debt, not enough revenue. Bad company.
FCH fits my eleven twenty-one criteria and its chart looks good too. I think FCH just started going up, and I consider it my long term position.FCH is at $5.74 today.
I am LOVING REIT's right now!
selling at less than 50% of book. Hotel stocks should improve as economy recovers.
Even with the slowdown, analysts expect FCH to have FFO of over $2/share in 2009. That means that it's trading at a P/FFO of just a bit over 4. That's stunningly low for a REIT. The rebound will precede the economic recovery, meaning it's ripe for a turnaround soon.
Price is down, unfairly punished by weak sector. Good financials, strong dividend, remodelings completed at most hotels.
a very positive free cash flow helps to cover its dividends and with a lot of renovation that have been completed look for an increase in more free cash flow within the next two years.
Hotel REITS will continue to be a solid investment. Out of all the real estate sectors, I think hotels are #1 right now. people are still traveling a lot and are staying in hotels. Occupancys overall are good and the average daily rate (ADR) keeps going up. There is also a lot of new development in the pipeline across the country. I think you can not go wrong with hotel REITS.
FELCOR PFD C IS A STEAL AT CURRENT PRICE. YIELD IS OVER 10% ON A CUMMULATIVE PFD STOCK THAT HAS NEVER DEFAULTED
A REIT that shouldn't be treated as a REIT exposed to subprime, but has thus far. Hold for gains. Buy for a great entry point here at the end of Aug07
