Analysts at Jefferies & Co. on Wednesday initiated coverage on hotel operator Wyndham Worldwide Corporation ( WYN ) with a "Buy" rating.

The firm also set a $49 price target on WYN shares, suggesting a massive 47% upside to the stock's Tuesday closing price of $33.26.

A Jefferies analyst commented, "We believe WYN is a significantly undervalued stock in a market environment where valuation bears little relevance. However, we believe these conditions should change over time, with WYN being a primary beneficiary. We expect the market view of timeshare to become more positive and the top line stable growth, cash generation and equity accretion should result in a more appropriately valued share price."

Wyndham shares posted small losses in premarket trading Wednesday.
