Nov 01st 2012 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on leisure entitled "Justifiably Confident". In summary, the report says:
Concern that June’s positive three-year RevPAR growth message is already being tempered by lower guidance for 2013 is nit picking. The difference is modest and within a margin of error. Importantly, it is driven by macro forecasts rather than actual trading slowdown (“steady as she goes”) and 5-7% targeted yield gain remains creditable. Q3 results were fine and strong finances back Marriott’s spirited commitment to share buybacks, which should curb downside risk.
