How much a stock's price changes over time is important for most investors, since price performance can both impact your investment portfolio and help you compare investment results across sectors and industries.

The fear of missing out, or FOMO, also plays a factor in investing, especially with particular tech giants, as well as popular consumer-facing stocks.

What if you'd invested in Marriott International (MAR - Free Report) ten years ago? It may not have been easy to hold on to MAR for all that time, but if you did, how much would your investment be worth today?

Bottom Line

Anyone can invest, but building a successful investment portfolio takes a combination of a few things: research, patience, and a little bit of risk. So, if you had invested in Marriott International a decade ago, you're probably feeling pretty good about your investment today.

Going forward, analysts are expecting more upside for MAR.

Shares of Marriott have outperformed the industry in the past three months. The company reported impressive first-quarter 2023 results. Earnings and revenues surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimates. The top and the bottom line increased on a year-over-year basis. The upside was backed by solid demand across all the customer segments and expansion plans. During the first quarter, a significant acceleration was observed in the International market with RevPAR growth of 63% year over year, driven by strong demand after travel restrictions were lifted, throughout Asia Pacific. Earnings estimates for 2023 have increased in the past 60 days. Marriott anticipates the International comp systemwide RevPAR to grow 22-25% for 2023. However, constrained RevPAR in China is a concern.
