    • "Lodging demand is clearly slowing," says BAML analyst Shaun Kelley, downgrading Hilton (HLT -3.1%), Hyatt (H -3.9%), RLJ Lodging (RLJ -6.1%), and Hersha Hospitality (HT -3.5%). He's most bearish on RLJ, which is cut two notches to Underperform; the other three are downgraded to Neutral.
    • RevPAR dipped 1.1% in the first two weeks of May, says Kelley, and if the trend continues, RevPAR growth from May 2014 to May 2016 would be the slowest of any two-year period since the financial crisis.
    • "The lodging cycle that began in March 2009 is over," he says, and hotel names have 15-40% of downside from current levels.

    • A global travel warning issued by the U.S. Department is impacting several sectors. Hotel stocks are notably weaker, while amusement park stocks are also trailing broad market averages. Airlines are feeling a double whammy from travel demand concerns and a 3% rise in crude oil futures.

    • Decliners include Hyatt Hotels (H -1.5%), Hilton Worldwide (HLT -1.1%), Marriott International (MAR -1.8%), JetBlue (JBLU -1.7%), Delta Air Lines (DAL -3.3%), American Airlines Group (AAL -2.4%), United Continental (UAL -3.2%), Allegiant Travel (ALGT -5.3%), Spirit Airlines (SAVE -4.1%), Southwest Airlines (LUV -2.7%), Six Flags (SIX -1.0%), Cedar Fair (FUN -1.0%), Disney (DIS -0.9%), and Sabre (SABR -3.9%), Virgin Amerinca (VA -2.5%), Alaska Air Group (ALK -1.5%).
