Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Lodging stock undervaluation has been a longstanding issue in the hotel industry. Many market experts and industry educators and managers have participated in, or at least been exposed to, discussions and/or arguments over this issue. In summary, the proponent of lodging stock undervaluation attributes the occurrence to Wall Street’s lack of comprehension of the lodging business. The opponent dismisses this claim by stating the unlikelihood of Wall Street having such extensive knowledge on all industries except this particular industry. Which view is correct is an empirical question and, therefore, it would be a safe assumption that empirical studies have been conducted investigating the issue when considering the importance of the issue.
