    Our featured recommendation, the BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (BPT), is a grantor trust. What that means is that the trust holds royalty interest in minerals from the Prudhoe Bay on the North Slope of Alaska.

    In trading on Friday, energy shares fell by 1.30 percent. Meanwhile, top losers in the sector included BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE: BPT), down 14 percent, and Gulf Island Fabrication, Inc. (NASDAQ: GIFI), down 13 percent.

direct investment: Pebblebrook Hotel Trust(PEB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Marshall Hargrave]

    The other key benefit for Strategic is that it enjoys industry-leading earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) per available room. For 2012, Strategic generated $81 per room of EBITDA. Compare this to top comps LaSalle Hotel (NYSE: LHO) at $74 per room and Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB) at $71. The reason for this is that Strategic is much less reliant than its peers on rooms, with much greater exposure to food and beverages. Strategic earns 53% of its revenue from rooms, while its peers get around 66% of revenues from rooms.
