Marriott International Inc. (MAR): Today's Featured Leisure Winner

Marriott International ( MAR) pushed the Leisure industry higher today making it today's featured leisure winner. The industry as a whole closed the day up 1.1%. By the end of trading, Marriott International rose 77 cents (2.1%) to $38.12 on average volume. Throughout the day, 2.6 million shares of Marriott International exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 3.3 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $37.56-$38.26 after having opened the day at $37.61 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $37.35. Other companies within the Leisure industry that increased today were: Arcos Dorados Holdings ( ARCO), up 14.1%, Multimedia Games ( MGAM), up 11.9%, Pizza Inn Holdings ( PZZI), up 8.3%, and Caribou Coffee Company ( CBOU), up 7.8%.

Marriott International, Inc. operates, franchises, and licenses hotels and corporate housing properties worldwide. Marriott International has a market cap of $12.12 billion and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 50.4, below the average leisure industry P/E ratio of 62.6 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 30.5% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 12 analysts that rate Marriott International a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and seven rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Marriott International as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, solid stock price performance and growth in earnings per share. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, Scientific Games Corporation ( SGMS), down 17.1%, Dover Motorsports ( DVD), down 10.1%, Granite City Food & Brewery ( GCFB), down 5.4%, and Jamba ( JMBA), down 4.7%, were all laggards within the leisure industry with McDonald's Corporation ( MCD) being today's leisure industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the leisure industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Leisure&Entert ( PEJ) while those bearish on the leisure industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Services ( SCC).
