Leisure Stocks' Oct 27 Earnings Roster: HLT, CHDN & More

The leisure industry is likely to have benefited from the reopening of the economy, accelerated pace of vaccinations worldwide, robust demand for recreational products and golf business.

The hotel industry is gradually coming out of the woods driven by the reopening of the economy and a ramped-up vaccination process. People are feeling more optimistic and confident about traveling again, primarily backed by the rapid pace of vaccinations. To capitalize on the sentiment, the hotel operators are increasingly focusing on a number of initiatives to cater to their customers as they return to hotels. Although occupancy is improving, it is still below the pre-pandemic level.

The boat industry continues to focus on consumer experience, digital marketing, operational excellence and human capital development to drive growth. Although pandemic induced lockdowns and restricted movement acted as a roadblock, the ship, boat building and repairing market exhibited significant resilience to overcome the same.

The theme park industry might have benefited from the strong consumer spending backdrop and the absence of constraints in park capacity and ride seating (particularly in the United States). Further, emphasis on offerings such as touchless payment systems for in-park purchases (including tickets), digital queues and self-pay systems for food orders are initiatives in the right direction. There is further room to run as companies continue to monitor additional business development opportunities and focus on adapting to customer-preference trends.
