$HSW Lockdowns are becoming softer and softer. COVID-19 will stay by humanity will return to active life will travel.
In 6-12m it will become obvious that air travel should be reopened or we loose it forever. Hope this time doctors will support the economy by finding out that infection probability in air travel is not unusually high and manageable. #buy

Hostelworld $HSW as the leading booking site for hostels is better positioned for post-COVID-19 recovery than upscale hotels like $IHG#buy

$HSW$IHG Wealthy people have the means to be the most cautious during COVID-19 crisis - they have space and can work from homes or summer homes and limit travel. Middle and lower classes still have to travel for work and have to travel for vacations to get some rest. Also people spend less due to the crisis and demand is shifting toward cheaper hotels.
This is clearly supported by US market recovery data - the highest occupancy rates in the US are in the Economy hotels! #buy

$HSW 2019 results were announced today. Turnaround strategy of new CEO finally showed clear results - bookings were up in Q4 2019 YoY. But COVID-19 clearly spoiled the whole picture: 2020 Q1 EBITDA hit is estimated in the range of €3m to €4m. (2019 Adj. EBITDA was 20.5m) #bearish
$HSW What a run in 2020: +22%! There is room for more to come: dividend yield is still high at 9% - this is what many funds are looking for in the current depressed rates environment. If you are a small cap investor - nice #buy idea

Is Neil Woodford now an official face of Hostelworld? Is he the only investor in the company?
