Host Hotels & Resorts Inc (HST): Today's Featured Real Estate Laggard

Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

Host Hotels & Resorts ( HST) pushed the Real Estate industry lower today making it today's featured Real Estate laggard. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.7%. By the end of trading, Host Hotels & Resorts fell $0.22 (-1.0%) to $20.90 on light volume. Throughout the day, 4,135,013 shares of Host Hotels & Resorts exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 6,855,300 shares. The stock ranged in price between $20.86-$21.11 after having opened the day at $21.11 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $21.12. Other companies within the Real Estate industry that declined today were: Zillow ( Z), down 10.4%, Leju Holdings Ltd ADR ( LEJU), down 8.4%, Transcontinental Realty Investors ( TCI), down 7.9% and Consolidated-Tomoka Land ( CTO), down 7.4%.

Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. is a publicly owned real estate investment trust (REIT). The firm primarily engages in the ownership and operation of hotel properties. It invests in the real estate markets of United States. Host Hotels & Resorts has a market cap of $15.9 billion and is part of the financial sector. Shares are up 8.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday. Currently there are 9 analysts that rate Host Hotels & Resorts a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 8 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Host Hotels & Resorts as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, reasonable valuation levels and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

On the positive front, JW Mays ( MAYS), up 3.8%, Desarrolladora Homex SAB de CV ADR ( HXM), up 3.5%, Impac Mortgage Holdings ( IMH), up 3.1% and Weyerhaeuser ( WY), up 2.7% , were all gainers within the real estate industry with AvalonBay Communities ( AVB) being today's featured real estate industry leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the real estate industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate ( IYR) while those bearish on the real estate industry could consider ProShares Short Real Estate Fund ( REK).
