Deutsche Bank has downgraded hospitality company, Wyndham Worldwide Corporation( WYN ) to a "Hold" on Thursday.

The firm downgraded WYN from a "Buy" to a "Hold," and has increased its price target from $55 to $57. This price suggests a 8% increase over the stock's current price of $52.37.

An analyst from the firm commented, "despite a solid quarter which left the bull case thesis on the stock largely unchanged, we are downgrading shares of WYN to Hold from Buy. Our downgrade is solely predicated on our view that: 1) shares have had an elongated run and we see current valuation into staunch growth expectations as being fair, 2) the potential for moderating free cash flow exists, 3) margins appear to be harnessed, and 4) the risk reward has become more balanced."


Wyndham Worldwide shares were mostly flat during Thursday morning trading. The stock is up 38.57% YTD.

Shares of Wyndham Worldwide ( WYN ) have a 1.76% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $52.29. The stock has technical support in the $47-$50 price area. The stock is trading near all-time highs of $55 a share.
