Accor: Oddo's best pick in its sector
(CercleFinance.com) - Oddo highlights a 50% y-o-y drop in RevPAR in August in Europe after three months of almost no revenue for hoteliers.
This is a sequential improvement compared to -62% in July and -80/-90% between April and June.
In cumulative performance, and since the beginning of 2020, RevPAR has fallen by 59% in the region, compared with flat growth at the end of February. Occupancy rates vary between -41% and -52%, but average prices are quite different by country, with a drop of only 5% in Germany against -27% for the United Kingdom, Oddo says.
Oddo says that it remains convinced that in the recovery phase, it is profiles that are exposed to local demand, and in the conomy/intermediate segments (given down trading) that will do best. Analysts add that they still prefer Whitbread (Buy) and Accor (Buy).
