LaSalle Hotel Properties (LHO), Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc (HOT): This REIT Just Raised Its Dividend 40% — Is More To Come?

Risks to Consider: The hotel sector is very competitive, and demand for rooms could cool if the economy falters again. LaSalle has taken on debt on which interest rates could go up, which could cut down on its profits even though it uses hedges to ward off this risk.

Action to Take –> REITs are required to pay as much as 90% of their income to shareholders, so there is a good possibility of higher dividend payments for LaSalle Hotel Properties (NYSE:LHO)’s owners. There is also some upside on the stock as the REIT continues to grow. Because construction activity was down during the recession, fewer hotel rooms coming online as demand is going up, so the REIT is anticipating a favorable environment for the near term.

P.S. — Current yields averaging 7.2%… gains of more than 127%… and 43% safer returns than traditional investing. Amy Calistri’s Daily Paycheck advisory is delivering all of these things and more. Right now, 91% of her picks are winners and she’s collecting more than $1,400 per month in dividend checks. Click here to see how she’s doing it and how you can join her today.
