Marriott's Demand and Profitability Trend Higher in Q2, Harmonizing With Our 2021 Forecast

Dan Wasiolek Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Dan Wasiolek |

Narrow-moat Marriott’s second-quarter global revenue per available room improved to 56% of 2019 levels (versus 62% for Hilton), up from 42% in the first quarter (45%), led by the U.S./Canada and China regions. U.S./Canada revPAR reached 61% of prepandemic levels versus 43% in the prior three months, while China revPAR surpassed 2019 marks this past spring. Strength continued into July, with U.S. revPAR rebounding to 84% of 2019 levels. We were encouraged to hear that U.S. group bookings for all future dates returned to 71% of prepandemic marks in June, up sharply from 44% in March, with rates having largely fully recovered. As a result, we plan to maintain our 2021 revPAR forecast of low 60s of 2019 levels, with a full recovery by 2023. We don’t plan a material change to our $130 fair value estimate, leaving the shares slightly overvalued.

We provide a platform for our authors to report on investments fairly, accurately, and from the investor’s point of view. We also respect individual opinions––they represent the unvarnished thinking of our people and exacting analysis of our research processes. Our authors can publish views that we may or may not agree with, but they show their work, distinguish facts from opinions, and make sure their analysis is clear and in no way misleading or deceptive.

To further protect the integrity of our editorial content, we keep a strict separation between our sales teams and authors to remove any pressure or influence on our analyses and research.
