‘Although the operating leverage could have been more convincing last year, it should improve over time’, writes the analyst in his study.

‘Together with the improvement in the momentum at the level of RevPAR, this observation brings our estimates above those of the consensus’, adds the intermediary.

Stifel says it is considering other potential catalysts, such as payouts to shareholders, but believes that these elements are currently outweighed by more unfavorable factors, in this case concerns surrounding strategy and a stock market valuation deemed ‘stretched’.

The professional nevertheless notes his recommendation to ‘sell’ to ‘hold’, with a target price increased from 20 to 32 euros, which suggests, according to him, a small potential for appreciation.
