What are analysts saying about Hilton Worldwide Holdings stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hilton Worldwide Holdings stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. offers hospitality service. The company is engaged in the ownership, leasing, management, development and franchising of hotels, resorts and timeshare properties. Its portfolio of brand names consists of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton and timeshare properties under the Hilton Grand Vacations brand. Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. is headquartered in McLean, Virginia. " (9/27/2017)
  • 2. J P Morgan Chase & Co analysts commented, "After a period of restriction, we are resuming our Overweight rating on the 'new' asset-light, largely franchise and management lodging fee'driven Hilton with a year-end 2017 price target of $66, implying mid-teens potential upside from current levels. We previously carried an Overweight rating and a $27 year-end 2017 price target on the old, pre-spin and pre-split Hilton." (3/17/2017)
  • 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "HLT's 4Q16 results were roughly in line with our expectations, despite the significant changes the company was undergoing as it prepared to spin off a sizable portion of its real estate into a REIT, along with the spin-off of its timeshare division' both occurred on January 3, 2017. While we adjusted our model at that time to reflect pro forma data for the spin-offs and the corresponding 1:3 reverse split of HLT shares, HLT reported its 4Q16 earnings using the pre-spin and reverse split numbers. As such, for comparison purposes, we use here our pre-adjusted numbers. However, HLT's forward outlook for 2017, which is in line with our estimates, uses post spin/split numbers. That said, 4Q16 results were solid, despite HLT's system wide comparable RevPAR of 0.9% being a bit on the light side compared to the U.S. industry wide RevPAR of 3.2%. Importantly, HLT's outlook of 1.0% to 3.0% RevPAR for 2017 is consistent with our 2.1% estimate (for HLT), and HLT's expectation of adjusted EBITDA of $1,835 million to $1,885 million is consistent with ours and the consensus expectation."
