|Should see upper 90's in fairly short order IMO|
|Luke sounds worried too
|Well Elegant hotels themselves disagree with you;"However, while visitor numbers and airlift to the island have continued to increase, and there is good underlying growth in demand for Barbados, most of that growth has been in the villa rental segment and at the lower-cost end of the hotel market. Recent data from Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. shows that, for the first quarter of calendar 2016, demand for luxury accommodation decreased by 3.7%, while overall arrivals increased by 7.4%"|
|This once I agree with Airbnb. I don't see that they are a direct competitor to EHG - they have a very different clientele.|
|However, Sullivan (Airbnb) denied claims that Airbnb was undermining the traditional accommodation sector.
“We do not cannibalize the industry or take market share from traditional accommodation sites. We end up basically growing the industry because more people are interested in coming. We have a tremendous impact on the local taxi companies, bars and restaurants. The entire eco-system which makes up the tourism sector in general benefits when there is a growing Airbnb presence,” he stressed.
Sounds great! Provided the zika virus doesn't stop people risking private homes! The possibilities for growth in tourism over the next ten years must be enormous.|
|Sounds possible bad news for Airbnb and good news for EHG.|
|I think "struggled in its last full financial year" is a bit hard, but all publicity of EHG is welcome! And what dividend growth can you realistically expect when the yield is ALREADY 8.5% or so???|
|Elegant Hotels Group (AIM:EHG)
The owner and operator of six upscale freehold hotels and a beachfront restaurant on the island of Barbados struggled in its last full financial year against a backdrop of challenging market conditions. However, this didn’t stop the Group fulfilling its IPO commitment of a progressive dividend policy in line with the growth in future earnings. The proposed final dividend of 3.5p, resulted in a full year dividend of 7.0p per share which equates to a yield of 7% on the IPO price of £1 and a whopping 8.5% on the current share price (81.80p). Little dividend growth is currently forecast but the yield could attract some buyers.
|Yes, fantastic chart, looking great here :-)
Another Great review
|Hi Peter! Yes, I'm waiting for this share to rerate to around 100p as well. I imagined the rerate would come after the next half-yearly update, which should show increased revenue and maybe profits with Waves now fully up and running. But it looks like it might be coming sooner than that.|
|If this breaks to the upside there is no resistance until 100p+ and there is a gap at around 97p.|

|Chart here looking strong.|
|I still don't understand the mysterious LBO's motives, but he/she seems determined to paint Barbados / EHG in the worst possible light. But, perhaps it's not such a bad thing he/she is here; I'm glad to hear the case AGAINST investing in EHG, so that I'm better informed.
So far, as far as I'm concerned, this share is a very good share to hold - 8.5% dividends, trades at huge discount to NAV, profitable company, big institutional investors behind it, very likely imminent rerating of the share.|
|Either Zika will spread and affect everywhere or like most other problems it will die out and soon be forgotten. I favour the latter. LBO certainly has a very narrow interest in the disease.|
|Looking very strong and with a juicy 3.5p dividend next month for owners!|
|EHG showing good strength ex-dividend; somebody is happily mopping up all the usual sales at this time. I still think this is one of my two best finds for an income stock with capital gain potential (FWIW, the other is ShoeZone (SHOE)), so here's hoping for many dividends to come in the future.|
