WTM London welcomes 60 new exhibitors Sixty new exhibitors have already signed up to do business at this year’s WTM London – the leading global event for the travel industry taking place from November 6 to 8– including major tourist boards, innovative technology specialists and famous attractions. .....Meanwhile, many exhibitors have decided to upgrade and take a main stand, instead of sharing exhibition space with others, in order to raise their profile during the event. They include international attractions giant Merlin Entertainments – which runs brands such as Legoland and Madame Tussauds – and the tourist boards of Grenada and Moscow.

'UK Stocks Tapping into Emerging Markets Growth' Merlin Entertainments (MERL) Merlin Entertainments’ main business is the operation of theme parks. Most of its revenue is derived from its Midway Attractions division of indoor venues. The stock gains 7.9% year to date. Known in the UK as the operator of theme parks Alton Towers and LegoLand, Merlin Entertainments is not limited to the UK. They currently have four theme parks in China, one in Korea and two in South East Asia. The company will also open a theme park in Dubai in October this year, and continue to explore opportunities in China. “Merlin has a diverse portfolio of global brands with over 70% of 2016 profits from outside the UK and this proportion will only grow over time as we continue to invest internationally. I remain confident in the company's underlying growth prospects,” said Nick Varney, chief executive of Merlin Entertainments. Richard Buxton, manager of the Old Mutual UK Alpha Fund and Steve Davies, manager of the Jupiter UK Growth Fund both back the stock, believing the company is a “fabulous long-term structural growth story”. “I can see their growth story out to 2030 and there are not many companies particularly in the top end of the FTSE 100 that you can say that about,” said Davies. According to Morningstar data, fund management group BlackRock owns 8.7% of the company. HTTP://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/news/159991/uk-stocks-tapping-into-emerging-markets-growth.aspx

Incredible, just look at the contrast in views: Berenberg reiterating SELL , target 375p - June 8th Barclays overweight tp 575p - June 15th So, what's changed over a week? The information set available to both is the same. At the end of day it all boils down to taking a view, and who's opinion is more reliable? Pick a card.

International revenue to support Merlin through decline in UK visitors... Neil Wilson, senior market analyst at ETX Capital, said the warning about visitor numbers in the UK this year is "not encouraging, but it is worth noting Merlin is only about a third of the way through a planned global expansion of Legoland". "The Japan site opened in April and with plans for further expansion in Asia and US (a site in South Korea is planned, while it is exploring options for sites in China and New York, too) there ought to be considerable new revenue streams coming in the longer term that investors who are worried about terror threats to the UK business in the near-term may want to look more closely at.” proactiveinvestors.co.uk FT: Analysts are predicting Merlin’s underlying earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation will come to £499m in 2017, following the £433m recorded last year. However, Simon French, analyst at Cenkos, said he expected earnings estimates “to edge down slightly to reflect the comments in the trading update”. FT Alphaville.....

Ahead of next weeks AGM statement.....Panmure... BE The AGM statement traditionally has no numbers but we expect YTD trading to be in line with management expectations. The trend of improving inbound visitations to Merlin’s London attractions should be holding, given strong hotel RevPAR/air traffic data and robust airport concession performance from the likes of SSP Group/The Restaurant Group. Terrorism concern remains elevated across gateaway cities (and the Drayton Manor tragedy may have taken the shine off UK performance) but Merlin’s portfolio is well diversified (greater than 70% profits ex-UK) and 2017 expectations feel well set as peak trading approaches, for £306m PBT. Share price strength has continued and Merlin’s valuation now (rightly) sits towards the top of the peer group, trading on 12.8x 2017 EV/EBITDA. HTTPS://ftalphaville.ft.com/marketslive/2017-06-06/
