Wyndham's (WYN) Q4 Earnings Trump Estimates, Revenues Lag

Leading hotelier, Wyndham Worldwide CorporationWYN is a provider of various hospitality services to individual and business customers through its premier portfolio of global brands. The company has significant presence in major hospitality markets in the United States and across the world.

Moreover, the company has an industry-leading guest loyalty program - Wyndham Rewards - which helps members to earn rewards and redeem points on their hotel stays. Also, in order to survive in the competitive environment, Wyndham is devising new ways to increase occupancy at its hotels.

However, lingering global uncertainty in economies like Europe, Brazil and China has been limiting revenue growth. Additionally, negative currency translation has been marring the company's revenues and profits over the past few quarters, given Wyndham's considerable international operations.

Investors should note that the consensus estimate for WYN has been moving slightly upwards over the last 60 days. Meanwhile, WYN's earnings have been mostly strong over the past few quarters. In fact, the company posted positive earnings surprises in three of the last four quarters, with an average beat of 0.98%. Revenues, however, outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate in just one of the trailing four quarters.
