5 Travel Stocks to Ring in New Year

InterContinental Hotels Group

Hotels might see a pop this season while more people travel, and InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) gets a buy rating from Telsey Group analyst Christopher Jones. He noted that key gateway markets, including New York, San Francisco and Miami, are seeing strong tourism and IHG has hotels in some of these markets.

From an investment standpoint, Jones noted that IHG keeps expanding but also has one of the lowest valuations among its peers. He considers the company to be "very underleveraged."

IHG's operating revenue increased to $467 million in the third quarter from $421 million the previous year. The hotel chain has been able to outperform the industry because of sustained results from relaunching the Holiday Inn, said CEO Richard Solomons in the company's third-quarter earnings report.

IHG will be rolling out a plan of several years for its Crowne Plaza brand.

Shares of IHG are down almost 12% year to date.
