Marriott announces Starwood guest reservation database security incident

Marriott has taken measures to investigate and address a data security incident involving the Starwood guest reservation database. On November 19, the investigation determined that there was unauthorized access to the database, which contained guest information relating to reservations at Starwood properties* on or before September 10. On September 8, Marriott received an alert from an internal security tool regarding an attempt to access the Starwood guest reservation database in the United States. Marriott quickly engaged leading security experts to help determine what occurred. Marriott learned during the investigation that there had been unauthorized access to the Starwood network since 2014. The company recently discovered that an unauthorized party had copied and encrypted information, and took steps towards removing it. On November 19, Marriott was able to decrypt the information and determined that the contents were from the Starwood guest reservation database. The company has not finished identifying duplicate information in the database, but believes it contains information on up to approximately 500 million guests who made a reservation at a Starwood property. For approximately 327M of these guests, the information includes some combination of name, mailing address, phone number, email address, passport number, Starwood Preferred Guest, or SPG, account information, date of birth, gender, arrival and departure information, reservation date, and communication preferences. For some, the information also includes payment card numbers and payment card expiration dates, but the payment card numbers were encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard encryption, or AES-128. There are two components needed to decrypt the payment card numbers, and at this point, Marriott has not been able to rule out the possibility that both were taken. For the remaining guests, the information was limited to name and sometimes other data such as mailing address, email address, or other information. Marriott reported this incident to law enforcement and continues to support their investigation. The company has already begun notifying regulatory authorities. "We deeply regret this incident happened," said Arne Sorenson, Marriott's president and CEO. "We fell short of what our guests deserve and what we expect of ourselves. We are doing everything we can to support our guests, and using lessons learned to be better moving forward. Today, Marriott is reaffirming our commitment to our guests around the world. We are working hard to ensure our guests have answers to questions about their personal information, with a dedicated website and call center. We will also continue to support the efforts of law enforcement and to work with leading security experts to improve. Finally, we are devoting the resources necessary to phase out Starwood systems and accelerate the ongoing security enhancements to our network," Sorenson continued.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) upgraded to Outperform from In-Line at Imperial Capital with analyst David Miller saying while fiscal 2019 should be a "transitional year," fiscal 2020 brings an "abundance of catalysts." 2. Citizens Financial (CFG) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie. 3. Parsley Energy (PE) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst John Nelson saying greater appreciation of the the company's free cash flow inflection in the second half of 2019 should drive improved investor sentiment. 4. Taubman Centers (TCO) was upgraded to Sector Perform from Underperform at Scotiabank and to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley. 5. Marriott (MAR) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Stephen Grambling saying the stock has been penalized recently amid Starwood integration issues, but these will prove temporary and position Marriott better in the future.

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Stephen Grambling removed Wyndham Hotels & Resorts (WYN) from his firm's America's Conviction List while keeping a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst lowered his price target for the stock to $70 from $76. Grambling reduced his estimates for Wyndham to reflect incremental caution around timeshare amid softening housing data and rising rates. However, he continues to believe upside from the La Quinta acquisition, accelerating unit growth, and fee rates should all drive upside to consensus estimates and a "re-rating" versus peers. Nonetheless, Grambling sees a more attractive risk/reward in shares of Marriott (MAR).

Marriott upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Stephen Grambling added Marriott International to his firm's America's Conviction List while keeping a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $153 from $159. The stock has been penalized recently amid Starwood integration issues, but these will prove temporary and position Marriott better in the future, Grambling tells investors in a research note. He believes that as the disruption normalizes, net unit growth should accelerate and Marriott should post upside to consensus estimates.

Hold
Marriott downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus
Argus analyst John Staszak downgraded Marriott (MAR) to Hold, citing a recent slowdown in its RevPAR growth as well as the potential for the multi-year upturn in the lodging industry to end. The analyst states that the company's latest EPS beat reflected stock repurchases and "carefully managed expenses", as revenue fell 1% and North America RevPAR was up just 0.6% and below the management's prior guidance of 1.5%-2.0% growth. Staszak adds that Marriott shares have rallied over 200% since his upgrade in 2012, but believes that other consumer discretionary names such as McDonalds (MCD) offer greater return prospects.
