Best Stocks of the Bull Market #2: Wyndham Worldwide (WYN)
Market Capitalization: $9.7 billion
Total Return Since 3/9/2009: 2,557%
Wyndham Worldwide (WYN) operates Days Inn, Super 8, Ramada and other resort and hotel arms across the globe.
And while during the depths of the financial crisis it seemed unlikely anyone would ever splurge on a vacation ever again, things have improved on the spending front — and deep cost-cutting made to boost margins have paid off.
Wyndham now commands well more than 600,000 “rooms” worldwide in thousands of properties, and revenue has gone from $3.7 billion in 2009 to more than $5 billion in 2013.
