Guru Investment Theses on Choice Hotels International Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Choice Hotels International - Aug 08, 2016

Shares of Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE:CHH), the largest hotel franchisor in the U.S., fell in the second quarter due to slowed growth in revenue per available room (RevPAR) and unit growth that slightly missed Street estimates. While we agree RevPAR trends are a concern, Choice’s revenue is fee-driven and therefore is less impacted by RevPAR than its franchisees. We believe Choice will continue to generate strong cash flow and use it to repurchase shares, issue dividends, and invest in its new higher-end Cambria brand and vacation rental business. (David Baron)

Baron Funds Comments on Choice Hotels International Inc. - Aug 18, 2015

Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE:CHH), a franchisor of economy hotels, decreased in the quarter as slightly slower-than-expected growth in RevPAR (revenue per available room) and a high multiple led to investor sales. However, we still believe the company has growth potential with its recent revamp of its Comfort Inn brand, continuing increases in RevPAR, and stronger unit growth in the various Choice hotel brands. Choice’s “asset light” business model continues to generate strong cash flow, which the company uses to invest in growth initiatives and repurchase shares.
