Shares of Marriott have outperformed the industry in a year’s time primarily owing to impressive bottom-line performance. In fact, Marriott’s earnings topped the consensus mark for the 16 straight quarters. Additionally, the company seems to be benefiting from Starwood acquisition, sizeable international exposure and an attractive brand-position. Also, strong RevPAR gains and room growth drove the company’s quarterly results. Marriott anticipates earnings in the band of $5.81-$5.91 per share, up from the prior guidance of $5.43-$5.55. Meanwhile, the company is consistently trying to expand its presence worldwide and capitalize on the demand for hotels in international markets. It is very optimistic about growth opportunity in India. However, the company’s lower-than-expected top-line performances over the past two quarters have been a cause for concern.
