You have done a great job and you should be proud. To combine Sheraton and Westin...wow! Two great names. The hotel business is doing great. Just tried to book a room at the KC Westin...booked! I love it!
However, the stock is not moving, and that isn't really your fault. Investors are a fickle lot, looking for instant gratification. So, please do not misconstrue my requests as seeking short term gain...these two requests will benefit the company, and its owners, long term.
First, sell the Casino business. It's prospects are not good. Look at the supply and demand line.
Second, take the proceeds and buy back shares. At this price, and the dividend your paying, it makes more sense than to buy more properties or pay down debt.
Please give these requests serious consideration. Thank you.
