I've been keeping an eye on Summit Hotel Properties, Inc. (NYSE:INN) because I'm attracted to its fundamentals. Looking at the company as a whole, as a potential stock investment, I believe INN has a lot to offer. Basically, it is a highly-regarded dividend payer with a an impressive history of performance, trading at a discount. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, read the full report on Summit Hotel Properties here.

Good value with proven track record and pays a dividend

Over the past year, INN has grown its earnings by 55%, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. Not only did INN outperformed its past performance, its growth also surpassed the REITs industry expansion, which generated a 16% earnings growth. This paints a buoyant picture for the company. INN's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of INN's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the reits industry, INN is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that INN's price is currently discounted.
