Valentines for Investors?

Morningstar markets editor Jeremy Glaser discusses where investors may find love and heartache in the market.

Jason Stipp: I'm Jason Stipp for Morningstar, and welcome to the Friday Five. This is our look back at five notable headlines for investors. Joining me as always with the Friday Five is Morningstar Markets editor, Jeremy Glaser. Jeremy, thanks for being here.

Jeremy Glaser: Glad to be here.

Stipp: So this week, because we love our investors, we have five valentines out there in the market. Tell me what you've got for the Friday Five Valentine's edition.

Glaser: We'll take a look at hotels, we'll see that Google might not be spending their money as wisely as they can, wide-moat investors might be in for a great Valentine's Day surprise, Greece got a big gift from the European Union, and finally we'll take a look at our Valentine's Day stock pick.

Stipp: OK, so hotels actually did get a valentine from last week. So tell us a little bit about what you saw there.

Glaser: Last week we talked about how the big winner of the Super Bowl could very well be hotels, and even though your Colts went down in flames, hotels seem to be doing a little bit better. Wyndham Worldwide and Marriott had results that were better than expected, their 2010 outlook is pretty good, Starwood already came out with a 2010 outlook.
