I like Whitbread shares... and will soon be booking a room too

When I last looked, Whitbread (WTB) shares were in the top ten of my personal pension fund positions. I have been a fan at various levels for years, having enjoyed the share price bump after Coca-Cola purchased the company’s Costa unit at a decent multiple to take a decent profit, and then invested it back into the share when the Premier Inn owner decided to raise some money back during the 2020 COVID-19 uncertainties. I may not have made it one of my formal two tips of the year during the Christmas holidays, but I am still hopeful of a return to a c. 40 quid share price as I discussed back in June last year. So what do I make of its Q3 update today?

I still love Whitbread shares

Naturally you have to think carefully about every share in the travel sector at the moment. Earlier this week I wrote why I thought On The Beach (OTB) was wholly uninvestable HERE. By contrast I still own shares in Carnival (CCL) and, as I talked about last month HERE, I will even get back to making a bit of profit on my holding if the shares go up another couple of quid and there was an announcement today that its ‘ultra-luxury cruise line’ brand Seabourn would depart for both the Greek Isles and the Southern Caribbean next month. Certainly there is a bunch of older (and richer) people who look forward to their next trip soon. My top sector holding in the travel and related space though is Whitbread (WTB).

Do I panic as Whitbread shares fall 4% today?

Whitbread (WTB) is a share I have owned successfully for a while and noted back in January here that I still targeted a 4000 pence share price.  Whilst the shares have moved up from 3050 pence in early January, today they are down 4% or so at 3260 pence.  Still workable but why has the Premier Inn, Beefeater, Brewers Fayre and Table Table owner fallen back a couple of quid plus since the high of the year?

Why this Old Punter Will Not Be Returming to Hospitality Shares for Some Time to Come

Hello, Share Poolers.  This old punter has Whitbread shares.  It owns the Premier Inn, so must have suffered mightily during the lockdowns. As they’re gradually clawing back some of their old values, I won’t sell them. But once the present rising trend gives way to any weakness, I’ll probably let go. Nor will I buy any shares in the hospitality game probably for some time.
