Unusual volume provides reliable clues that the stock is expected to make a move. Investors
can use the put/call ratio statistics to measure trader sentiment. A high put/call ratio
suggests that the overall investment sentiment is bearish and that investors expect the
underlying stock to decrease in value. Conversely, a low put/call ratio implies that
investor sentiment is bullish based on the large amount of call options.
After a more than fivefold increase in Starwood's stock price since early 2009, a lodging recovery is fully priced into the stock, and shares are fairly valued.
Additionaly, Starwood's timeshare division is an unattractive business relative to its managed and franchised hotel operations. The timeshare industry is mature, cyclical, capital-intensive, and generates relatively low returns. Starwood shareholders would benefit from a sale or spin-off of the division.
