In this episode of ETF Spotlight, I spoke with Sylvia Jablonski, CEO and CIO of Defiance ETFs, about the broader market and travel stocks.
Major indices jumped today after a brutal week as concerns related to higher rates, inflation, economic slowdown, and supply chain disruptions continue to weigh on investor sentiment.
It remains to be seen whether the Fed will succeed in curbing inflation without causing any serious economic damage. At the same time, many high-quality companies with strong cash flow, good business models and strong pricing power look attractive at today’s prices.
Sylvia wants names like Apple AAPL, Microsoft MSFT and NVIDIA NVDA for long -term investment. He also likes travel stocks including airlines, hotels and cruise operators willing to benefit from demand.
This summer is expected to be the busiest time to travel since the pandemic began. As consumers continue to waste money, they are willing to pay a higher price. Removing restrictions related to Covid will also help travel stocks.
Delta Air Lines DAL reported that it returned to profit in March. Its management said the demand for travel was so strong that the company was able to offset the cost of fuel through higher fares. Hotel giants like Marriott MAR are also reporting an increase in travel demand.
Defiance Hotel, Airline, and Cruise ETF CRUZ holds airline, hotel, and cruise stocks. Marriott, Hilton HLT and Norwegian Cruise Line NCLH are its leading properties today.
