TheStreet Ratings rates Wyndham Worldwide Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations, notable return on equity and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Panera Bread Company ( PNRA), down 6.8%, Ruth's Hospitality Group ( RUTH), down 6.2%, Chuy's Holdings ( CHUY), down 4.4% and Nathans Famous ( NATH), down 3.9% , were all laggards within the leisure industry with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide ( HOT) being today's leisure industry laggard.
