Discussion of markets and holdings

Market overview

The emergence and spread of the COVID-19 virus have precipitated an extraordinary effort to contain the outbreak globally. While these initiatives are of utmost importance in defeating the virus’ spread, they have also resulted in significant economic deterioration, including the closure of businesses, a rise in furlough or unemployment, and have fueled steep declines in risky assets around the world.

Authorities have acted quickly to support the economy through unprecedented monetary and fiscal stimulus, and investor sentiment has whipsawed ever since in the tug-of-war between the positive impact of the stimulus versus the continued suppression of economic demand.

At Urbem, we believe that higher returns with lower risks can often be found in businesses levered towards next-generation products and services. Megatrends are an excellent source of long-term secular growth for companies with sustainable competitive advantages, and hence, they make time a more helpful friend for shareholders. The aging population is one of them.

According to one research study by Bank of America (BAC), people older than 65 will soon outnumber children younger

The company's dividend payouts and buybacks are backed by good cash flows, a fundamentally strong business with a unique value proposition and good financial performance

Yield-hunting investors usually have a limited set of industries to focus on, such as shipping or real estate. This is why they often miss out on hidden gems in other industries that tick all the boxes for providing solid, long-term yield, such as Extended Stay (STAY).

The hotel industry player is a mid-cap stock with a unique value proposition, good stability in revenues and excellent free cash generation, which is transforming into yield through dividends as well as buybacks.

This article is the third installment of a look at the lodging and hospitality industry. In part one, I provided an overview of the industry: the differences between owners of the physical lodging properties and the management companies that actually train the staff and do the hiring, firing, maintenance and so on. The third leg of this triad consists of the big “flags” like Hyatt (H), Hilton (HLT), Intercontinental Holdings (IHG), Marriott International (MAR), Wyndham Worldwide (WYN) and Accor SA (ACCYY) that bring the guests to the properties even though they seldom own the hotels themselves.

The lodging industry is characterized by its cyclical nature, thereby subject to spending cuts during an economic downturn. In this scenario, franchised business models, like those of Hyatt Hotels Corporation (H) or Marriott International Inc. (MAR), tend to suffer less under a recession, although credit conditions can make it more difficult to finance new properties. Choice Hotels International Inc. (CHH) is one of the largest hotel companies in the U.S., and also one of the few purely franchised operations in the midscale and economy segment of this industry. As such, its high ROIC model is attractive to prominent investors like
