Buy
American Express initiated with a Buy at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Ashish Sabadra initiated American Express with a Buy rating and a price target of $118. Sabadra contends that accelerated small business growth, proprietary card use in the international segment, and co-brand wins in the U.S. suggest that the company's business model remains intact. The analyst also notes that moderating rewards competition and cost discipline will support American Express earnings power.

American Express price target raised to $115 from $105 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Donald Fandetti raised his price target for American Express to $115 from $105 as he believes the U.S. consumer remains quite healthy and the tax cuts could provide a slight tailwind. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Neutral
American Express likely to suspend buyback, says Nomura Instinet
After speaking with investors, Nomura Instinet analyst Bill Carcache believes the capital impact on American Express from tax reform is not well understood. He estimates the tax reform charge will bring the company's CET1 ratio to 9.2% in Q4. The analyst believes, however, that American Express needs to maintain a CET1 level of no less than 11% if it is to pass the Federal Reserve's stress tests and sustain its buyback program. As such, he thinks the company will likely to suspend its buyback program in the first half of 2018. Carcache lowered his estimates and expects the stock to underperform in 2018. He believes other card issuers are better positioned to reinvest tax savings into growth. The analyst reduced his price target for American Express shares to $108 from $110 and keeps a Neutral rating on the name.

Strong Buy
Hilton upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst William Crow upgraded Hilton (HLT) to Strong Buy and increased its price target to $92 from $78. The analyst raised estimates to reflect a lower tax rate and believes global brands are "ideally positioned" for continued growth in global travel as middle classes "balloon" in faster growth regions such as China/Asia, Brazil, Mexico, India, and the Middle East, fueling international lodging demand. Crow notes lodging is "Amazon resistant" and is constructive on Hilton's strong unit growth, respected management, increasing free cash flow, solid earnings growth, balance sheet, and commitment to return capital to shareholders.

Hilton price target raised to $94 from $80 at Argus
Argus analyst John Staszak raised his price target on Hilton to $94, saying he expects the company's room growth to be the strongest in the lodging industry thanks to the "solid development pipeline, new brands, and a well-regarded loyalty program". Staszak is also positive on Hilton's shift to franchising, helping it generate a stream of royalties and management fees with a "relatively low capital investment". The analyst keeps his Buy rating on Hilton, also raising his FY18 EPS target to $2.40 from $2.25.

Deutsche neutral on Lodging space into 2018, continues to favor Hilton
Deutsche Bank analyst Carlo Santarelli attributes the 2017 rally in Lodging stocks to a combination of favorable sector rotation, optimism around tax reform, new branded credit card deals and an acceleration in the return of capital. With the cycle one year closer to a natural conclusion and tax reform is complete, the analyst believes sector rotation is more likely to be a headwind than a tailwind in 2018. As such, he's taking a neutral approach to the group heading into 2018, while continuing to favor Hilton (HLT). Santarelli raised his price target for the Hilton to $90 from $79, for Choice Hotels (CHH) to $80 from $74, for Hyatt (H) to $78 from $72 and for Marriott (MAR) to $136 from $124.

Equal Weight
Hilton downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Thomas Allen downgraded Hilton (HLT) to Equal Weight from Overweight despite raising his price target to $84 from $81, saying he sees fewer "idiosyncratic bull case drivers" for it versus Marriott (MAR) and La Quinta (LQ). He also said he is concerned around HNA's 25% Hilton stake, which could become a greater overhang if HNA begins unwinding other investments.

Hyatt upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Michael Bilerman upgraded Hyatt Hotels (H) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $82 from $74. The analyst believes asset sales and becoming a more fee-based business should narrow the stock's valuation gap relative to Marriott (MAR) and Hilton (HLT).

Buy
Park Hotels & Resorts upgraded to Buy with $32 target at SunTrust
As previously reported, SunTrust analyst C. Patrick Scholes upgraded Park Hotels & Resorts (PK) to Buy from Hold, stating that stability now being seen in the Group business decreases his fear of downward earnings cuts and provides confidence that his estimates will hold. Stating that he expects Hilton (HLT) and Marriott (MAR) to hit the high-end of their Q4 RevPAR guidances, or beat them, Scholes said such a scenario would bode well for the hotel REITS like Park to do the same. He raised his price target on Park Hotels shares to $32 from $28.
