JPMorgan analyst Joseph Greff is "increasingly cautious" on valuations in the Lodging space. Recent share performance, "peak" valuations, an extended cycle and decelerating industry trends all point to "diminished upside" from current share levels, Greff tells investors in a research note. On "more even" risk/reward profiles, the analyst downgraded both Marriott (MAR) and Hilton (HLT) to Neutral from Overweight. Greff also downgraded both Ryman Hospitality (RHP) and CorePoint Lodging (CPLG) to Underweight from Neutral as he sees more risk to the downside. The analyst's only remaining Overweight-rated names are Wyndham Hotels & Resorts (WH) and Extended Stay America (STAY).
