Increased vaccinated population and reduced travel restrictions are expected to boost demand for hotel bookings.
However, high inflation, war in Europe and rising interest rates will continue to affect consumer spending.
In such a scenario, TipRanks’ need for insightful tools seems appropriate for investors. Use of data from SEMrush Holdings (SEMR), the world’s largest website usage monitoring service, TipRanks’ website traffic tool visualizes the relationship between estimates of consumer visits to its websites and stock prices.
Let’s take a look at three stocks that are trending up on the website and have a good future.
Wynn Resorts Limited (NASDAQ: win)
Wynn Resorts is a publicly traded company in the hospitality and gaming sector. We focus on the development of luxury hotels and casinos.
Hampered by the pandemic and subsequent measures, Wynn Resorts’ finances were under significant pressure. Nonetheless, the recovery in travel due to the easing of COVID-related travel restrictions, especially in China, reflects increased customer demand.
TipRanks also found an upward trend in website traffic in their website traffic tool. Total visits to wynnresorts.com in April and May showed an upward trend on a global basis, increasing 4% and 52.86% respectively year-over-year. And compared to the year-to-date website growth rate of the previous year, year-to-date website growth was a whopping 69.76%.
This suggests that the company may report strong results in the second quarter.
In May, Wynn Resorts reported first quarter operating revenue growth of 29.4% and adjusted property EBITDA more than tripled.
Recently, Deutsche Bank analyst Carlo Santarelli maintained a ‘buy’ rating and $92 price target for Wynn Resorts. Santarelli’s price target suggests a 54.6% upside potential for him over the next 12 months.
Overall, the rest of the street is cautiously optimistic about the stock, with a medium buy consensus rating based on an even split between buys and holds. Wynn Resorts’ average price target of $85.69 implies a 43.99% upside potential. The stock has risen more than 51% over the past year.

Nevertheless, Huazhu Group’s management tried to navigate the situation through cost control measures and other strategic initiatives.
Huazhu CEO Jin Hui commented: Longer term, we will continue to put our customers, franchisees and employees at the center of our ability to weather the ups and downs of economic cycles over the long term. ”
I’ve noticed an upward trend in website clicks in my online traffic tool.

The consensus among analysts is a strong buy based on three unanimous buys. Huazhu Group’s average price target is $47.73, implying a potential upside of 24.43% from current levels. However, the stock has fallen 27.43% over the past year.

In the current market scenario, with a market capitalization of $32.57 billion, the company has suffered losses of around 3% over the past year. This reflects Hilton’s resilient business model and strong fundamentals.

Also, his website grew 24.9% year-to-date compared to the year-to-date growth of his website in the previous year. Moreover, compared to Q1, website traffic has increased by 22.04% in Q2 so far, showing optimism.
Barclays analyst Brandt Montour recently began reporting on Hilton with a hold rating and a price target of $125 (8.43% upside).
In line with Montour’s stance, consensus among analysts now results in hold valuations based on 2 buys and 8 holds. Hilton’s average price forecast is $149.6, meaning he could rise 29.77% from current levels.
