I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Action Hotels (AHCG) the owner and manager of 3 and 4 star hotels in the Middle East and Australia, has opened of its second hotel in Bahrain, ibis Styles Manama Diplomatic Area.

The hotel comprises 95 rooms including 24 family suites, a restaurant, a meeting room and a gym. This is Action's tenth collaboration with AccorHotels and the second ibis Styles-branded property in Action's portfolio. The first paying guests turned up on 1st August 2017 and we are told that "early business enquiries have been encouraging" This brings Action Hotels' portfolio to 13 operational hotels and 2,276 rooms in six countries with the remaining pipeline set to take Actions' total portfolio past 3000 rooms.

The shares are unmoved on the news and at 37p-41p the historic yield is now 5.51% at the offer price. The NAV at at 31 December 2016 was just over £1 per share. As such the shares remain well oversold. Sentiment may be poor after missed targets last year but the yield appears safe and the asset backing is very real . This has not been a great tip to date but the price is just plain wrong and the stance has to be BUY
