Marriott Stock Rating Climbs; Canary In Mine?

Pundits have said for some time that the hotel industry is poised for a renaissance. That hasn’t happened yet. The Leisure-Lodging group ranks a weak 104 on IBD’s list of 197 industries. However, in a welcome move that could be a harbinger of rising strength in the group, top-ranked Marriott International (MAR) on Thursday saw its Relative Strength Rating improve to 72, up from 68. That means Marriott stock is outperforming 72% of all stocks, regardless of industry.


It’s a bullish sign but there’s more work to be done. The market’s biggest winners tend to have an 80 or better RS Rating in the early stages of their moves. See if Marriott International can continue to rebound and hit that benchmark.
