Mario Gabelli Comments on Ryman Hospitality Properties

Guru stock highlight

December 03, 2018 | About:
Ryman Hospitality Properties Inc. (2.2%) (NYSE:RHP) (RHP – $86.17 – NYSE) is the owner of five large convention-centric hotels under the Gaylord brand. It also owns the Opryland brand and entertainment complex in Nashville, the city of its origin. As such, it has benefited from the growth in country music and consumer preference for live entertainment. The company is structured as a REIT (real estate investment trust), providing an extra level of tax efficiency to enhance its investment attraction. The company’s hotels are group-centric, and revenues and bookings have remained strong due to its long and steady economic expansion in the United States. Future growth should come from new hotels (probably established as joint ventures) as well as development of additional live entertainment venues, one of which will open in Orlando later this year, and development of country music-focused content.

From Mario Gabelli (Trades, Portfolio)'s third-quarter 2018 shareholder letter.
