GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: REITs » REIT - Hotel & Motel
Compare: » details
RLJ Lodging Trust was incorporated as a Maryland real estate investment trust in January 2011. Company is a self-advised and self-administered Maryland real estate investment trust, which invests in premium-branded, focused-service and compact full-service hotels.Their strategy is to invest primarily in premium-branded, focused-service and compact full-service hotels. Focused-service and compact full-service hotels typically generate most of their revenue from room rentals, have limited food and beverage outlets and meeting space and require fewer employees than traditional full-service hotels. They believe premium-branded, focused-service hotels have the potential to generate attractive returns relative to other types of hotels due to their ability to achieve RevPAR levels at or close to those achieved by traditional full-service hotels while achieving higher profit margins due to their more efficient operating model and less volatile cash flows. They also may invest in compact full-service hotels, which have operating characteristics that resemble those of focused-service hotels. They distinguish themselves from other hotel owners through the following competitive strengths Large, established lodging platform, High quality hotel portfolio, Experienced and deep senior management team with a strong track record, Strong relationships with international franchisors, Use of unaffiliated hotel management companies, Prudent and flexible capital structure.
