    Good Earnings today

    I'm not of the opinion that GAAP basis EPS is a particularly good measurement of the performance of the Company, nor do I think that it would necessarily be a driver of the share price.

    I look at REITs based upon their ability to generate operating cash flows, which have been on a nice up-swing...What causes my mixed feelings is the increasing concentration of the properties in just a few (albeit quite profitable) markets.

      NYC is best hotel market in country by far. That they have concentration in NYC is big plus. Other markets pretty good also. I follow AHT, FCH and HPT and HT had by far the best RevPar gain.
      Their hotel generally are not as good as other REITs, but in the right places.

      • The strength of the NYC market is built into the cost of the properties that HT owns. They pay much more per unit to be in NYC, so the higher occupancy and RevPAR comes at a cost.

        My comment, however comes from thinking back to the period following September 11, 2001 and the beating that NYC hospitality took over the next few years; I worry about having too many eggs in that basket.
