    S&P ups HPT to 5 Star Rating

    Hospitality Properties (HPT ) and La Quinta (LQI ): Maintains 5 STARS (buy)
    Analyst: Raymond Mathis
    Despite any impact on the hospitality industry from new terrorist attacks in Europe, S&P remains bullish on these two hotel operators, neither of which owns properties overseas. La Quinta has relied chiefly on domestic leisure travel to post industry-leading growth in revenue per available room, not international travel. Hospitality Properties' structure provides for guaranteed minimum payments from tenants. Also, the recent pullback in its shares has pushed the yield up by more than 6.6%. S&P views these stocks as undervalued and likely to continue outperforming the market.
