    Hilton celebrates 100th anniversary in the 'golden age of travel'

    "We're in the golden age of travel," Kevin Jacobs, Hilton's Chief Financial Officer, tells Yahoo Finance "with a rapidly growing middle class...in the short-term it'll ebb and flow based on economic cycles, but over the long-term the opportunity set is actually quite large." Yahoo Finance's Alexis Christoforous and Brian Sozzi talk to Jacobs about the state of travel, the overall hotel industry and Hilton's plans for the next 100 years.

    7 Stocks to Buy for Spring Season Growth

    We're almost a month into the spring season, which is a great time to consider your favorite stocks to buy. If anything, the markets, as a product of human ingenuity, represents the collective, overriding sentiment. In other words, if people feel good about themselves and their prospects, the major indices will reflect this.However, this year's spring brings conflicting messages. On the pessimistic end of the scale, the U.S.-China trade war has extended much further than most political pundits anticipated. That includes President Donald Trump, who often boasts about his negotiating acumen. He really needs to seal the deal here in order to mitigate damage against affected sectors.But on the other end, The U.S. still has the greatest economy in the world. Plus, our labor market is incredibly robust, with unemployment still reading at multi-decade lows. Thus, even though consumer confidence sometimes wavers, investors have justification to buy into stocks on the rise.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks That Can Outperform for Years Ultimately, even the trade war will almost certainly find a productive resolution. After all, securing a happy medium for the number one and two economies in the world is a net positive. With that, here are seven stocks to buy this spring season: Spring Stocks to Buy: Amazon (AMZN)Source: Shutterstock E-commerce giant Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is always a good choice among popular stocks to buy. For one thing, its core industry continues to gain relevancy. While America's shopping centers cope with a changing retail landscape, it's Amazon that has imposed that change. They're in the driver's seat, which by itself is a great reason to own AMZN stock.Usually, though, investors should stay away from tired arguments. The beauty about Amazon is that it's also one of the stocks on the rise this year. Unlike other organizations that may be tempted to rest on their laurels, Amazon finds new ways to disrupt businesses. This chip on their shoulder has driven AMZN stock past a $1 trillion market capitalization previously.I see shares getting there to stay, and then some. Obviously, the company dominates e-commerce, and they're making noise on the logistics end. They're an established powerhouse in cloud-computing services and content streaming. Recently, they dove into video games. AMZN is an unstoppable freight train, making it one of the best stocks to buy for any season, or reason. Brookfield Asset Management (BAM)Source: Governor Earl Ray Tomblin via FlickrPerusing the internet for investment-related articles, I noticed that not too many analysts focus on real estate as a viable arena when seeking stocks to buy. That might be a mistake, considering the incredible performance of Brookfield Asset Management (NYSE:BAM) shares. Year-to-date, BAM stock is up over 25%.But despite this technical surge, I can understand many investors' hesitancy. In the domestic market, real estate prices have ballooned to absurd levels. According to Rentcafe.com, the average rent for an apartment is $2,371. That's already bad enough. However, we're talking about an average size of 786 square feet! * 7 Mid-Cap Stocks to Find the Market's Sweet Spot This just doesn't seem sustainable. However, we also must remember that the mortgage industry no longer lends money to subprime borrowers. Thus, as crazy as prices are right now, we may not see a sharp correction. If so, you can expect BAM stock to continue riding its momentum. Hilton Hotels (HLT)Source: eGuide Travel via FlickrAmong this season's stocks to buy, Hilton Hotels (NYSE:HLT) has some pros and cons. Starting with the bad news first, international headwinds, such as the U.S.-China trade war, doesn't do HLT stock many favors. Over the years, Chinese tourists have flexed their muscles, and Hilton obviously wants a piece of that pie.On the other hand, HLT is certainly among the best-performing stocks on the rise. On a YTD basis, shares are up over 25%. In this month alone, HLT stock gained nearly 6%.While the famous hotelier may experience a corrective action in the markets, longer-term factors appear net positive. For instance, the dollar is still relatively strong compared to international currencies. Therefore, this incentivizes American tourists to travel to foreign countries and splurge.Another tailwind is Hilton's premium brand. Allegedly, the Trump tax cuts gave wealthy people more money. That might explain HLT and its status among stocks on the rise. AMC Entertainment (AMC)Source: Shutterstock Out of the stocks to buy mentioned on this list, I have a vested interest in AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC). That's because I own AMC stock, and I know many people who hold various roles at the cineplex operator. Plus, I'm a Premiere Stubs member, which entitles me to a free popcorn during my birth month.But as much as I'm bullish on AMC stock, I admit that the past several months were rough. Shares initially took off in late summer last year but crumbled under broader market pressures. Nevertheless, AMC is one of the stocks on the rise in 2019, gaining over 30% since the January opener. * 7 Marijuana Companies: Which Pot Stocks Should You Buy? So why am I optimistic despite this volatility? It really comes down to the value proposition. While streaming has taken over the entertainment landscape, the box office offers an unparalleled consumer experience. Plus, taking your family out to the movies is a much cheaper form of escapism than going to a ballgame. RCI Hospitality (RICK)Source: Edkohler via FlickrAccording to population data, the most common birthday in the U.S. is Sept. 16. Through reverse-engineering, we can logically surmise that Americans get it on most frequently during the winter months. Maybe that helps explain why RCI Hospitality (NASDAQ:RICK) crashed last winter?Jokes aside, despite the severe volatility, I think RICK stock presents a great opportunity. For starters, RCI Hospitality is one of the recent stocks on the rise. Since the close of March 22, shares are up over 8%. Moreover, sex never goes out of style.This is an important point if this market upturn turns out to be a head-fake. During the last recession, so-called "gentlemen's clubs" performed very well. While it's not among the feel-good stocks to buy, RICK stock provides a quick and dirty boost to your portfolio. Sturm Ruger & Company (RGR)Source: Stephen Z via FlickrDue to mass shootings and fierce political opposition, firearms manufacturer Sturm Ruger & Company (NYSE:RGR) has fallen out of favor. However, an unbelievable occurrence in painfully liberal California may give RGR stock new life.For nearly two decades, California imposed a restriction on magazines that carry more than 10 rounds. That draconian -- liberals would say sensible -- measure was overturned by a federal judge before being legally challenged. However, this created a one-week period where Californians could rush to their local gun shops to stock up on magazines holding more than 10 rounds.The San Francisco Chronicle anguished that firearms retailers may have sold hundreds of thousands of these magazines. Not that I would know, but many southern California gun stores completely ran out of inventory before the deadline passed. * 7 AI Stocks to Watch with Strong Long-Term Narratives But how will this impact RGR stock? Simply put, Ruger makes AR-15 rifles that accept a variety of magazine sizes. Some people will find these rifles more fun to shoot with 30-plus rounds at their disposal, breathing new life to the platform. Manchester United (MANU)Source: Paul via Flickr (Modified)You don't find too many analysts incorporating Manchester United (NYSE:MANU) into their list of stocks to buy for a reason: unlike their underlying English soccer (or "football" for you snobs) team, MANU stock stinks. Over the last five years, shares moved up a very pedestrian 12%.So why even consider MANU stock for this spring season? This has all the appearance of a stock that makes you think this time it's different, only to disappoint yet again. Plus, sports-related investments don't have the greatest reputation. Sure, World Wresting Entertainment (NYSE:WWE) is making a killing, but how long did it basically drift sideways before that?Back to the original question: the answer is China. Out of all European soccer teams, Manchester United has the greatest following in China, totaling 107 million followers. For perspective, the U.K. has a population size of 66 million.However, Manchester United has jealous competitors. In response, management is developing "entertainment experiences" in China to further cement their popularity. It's not a guarantee that MANU stock will move higher. But if it's gonna happen, it just might happen this year.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto WAs long AMC stock.

    Bomb Watchers Twitching as Looser Rules Weighed for Uranium

    It’s also why Kelley and his colleagues are now concerned that United Nations officials and atomic regulators are poised to loosen rules on the industry, unlocking finance to take more radioactive material out of the ground without corresponding new checks. “Uranium extraction from phosphates flies under the radar,” said Kelley who also inspected phosphate plants in Egypt and Syria as a director with the International Atomic Energy Agency. Diplomats at the UN and IAEA have proposed reclassifying uranium as a “critical material.” That would allow countries to tap funding from the World Bank and other development institutions to ensure supply under the guise of the UN’s sustainable development goals.

    The long-shuttered hotel property on L’Enfant Plaza, now dubbed the Hilton Washington D.C. National Mall, has reopened after a closure of more than five years.  The 367-room hotel has laid fallow since Stanford Hotels & Resorts bought it from then JBG Cos. in a court-ordered sale in 2013. Stanford shuttered the hotel to make way for the renovation, though there was little immediate movement at the time.  The project features a complete renovation of the guest rooms, an opening up of the lobby and attached restaurant, and renovation of the meeting and event spaces. In all, the Hilton at L’Enfant Plaza has 23,000 square feet of meeting and event space.  In the guest rooms, which average more than 300 square feet, there are now hard-surface floors — and complimentary slippers to help keep noise down.

    3 Reasons Booking Holdings Stock Will Take Flight

    Travel and reservation agency powerhouse, Booking Holdings (NYSE:BKNG), has been sputtering lately. During the past year, the shares have shedded more than 15% of their value. The problem? Well, Booking Holdings stock is suffering from a lack of meaningful growth on the top-line. As seen with the latest quarter, the company posted lackluster guidance.Source: Shutterstock Then again, the competitive environment is getting more intense, as Expedia Group (NASDAQ:EXPE) and Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) have ramped up their efforts. But Booking Holdings stock has also come under pressure from the effect of operators like Airbnb, which may go public this year. Oh, and companies like Hilton Hotels (NYSE:HLT) and Marriott International (NASDAQ:MAR) are trying to look for ways to cut out the middlemen.In the meantime, there is the slower growth in Europe and China, and it is far from clear when things will start to pick up again.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsNo doubt, all these are quite worrisome. But I still think there is value with Booking Holdings stock as Wall Street appears to be overeating. * 8 Risky Stocks to Watch as Earnings Season Kicks Off So let's take a look at some of the bullish factors: Reason 1: Diverse Global PlatformThe roots of Booking Holdings go back to 1997, during the heyday of the dot-com boom. At the time, the company was focused on providing a "Name Your Price" model for purchasing airline tickets.Yet since then, BKNG has gone through a major transformation, mostly driven by aggressive M&A. Now the company has an extensive platform, which includes the following: * Priceline.com/Booking.com: These brands are for reservations for hotels, rentals, airline tickets and vacation packages. * KAYAK: This is a meta-search service that allows users to comparison shop for travel options. * Rentalcars.com: This is a top global rental car reservation service. * Agoda: This property provides accommodation reservations in Asia. * OpenTable: This service allows for booking restaurant reservations.In other words, BKNG is quite diverse. But there also are strong synergies across the properties. What's more, the wide platform has allowed the company to capitalize on emerging growth opportunities, such as alternative accommodations. The business posted revenues of $2.8 billion last year.Then there is the mobile side, which has been thriving. The company is a top 10 app in over 100 markets across the world. Reason 2: Expanding MarketIn a way, the competition is a good thing for BKNG. It's a clear indication that the market is enormous and growing. For example, according to Zion Market Research, the category is forecasted to hit $1.955 trillion by 2026. This would come to a compound annual growth rate of 12.1%.Some of the driving forces include: the ubiquity of smartphones, the availability of secure payment systems and rising income in emerging markets.So all in all, there are strong tailwinds that should help gin up growth for Booking Holdings stock, especially since it has a broad base of offerings that span key parts of the online travel space. Reason 3: ValuationFor the most part, it looks like much of the problems are baked into Booking Holdings stock. After all, the valuation is fairly low at current levels, with the forward price-to-earnings ratio at about 16X or so. This is reasonable in light of the company's strong positioning and brands in core markets. Such advantages are difficult for companies to replicate.Besides, the company continues to generate substantial cash flows, which allow for healthy buybacks and acquisitions. Last year the company reported EBITDA of $5.7 billion, up about 18% on a year-over-year basis.Tom Taulli is the author of High-Profit IPO Strategies, All About Commodities and All About Short Selling.
