The end of an earnings season can be a great time to assess how companies are handling the current business environment and discover new stocks. Let’s take a look at how Soho House (NYSE:SHCO) and the rest of the hotels, resorts and cruise lines stocks fared in Q4.

Hotels, resorts, and cruise line companies often sell experiences rather than tangible products, and in the last decade-plus, consumers have slowly shifted from buying "things" (wasteful) to buying "experiences" (memorable). In addition, the internet has introduced new ways of approaching leisure and lodging such as booking homes and longer-term accommodations. Traditional hotel, resorts, and cruise line companies must innovate to stay relevant in a market rife with innovation.

The 13 hotels, resorts and cruise lines stocks we track reported a mixed Q4; on average, revenues beat analyst consensus estimates by 1.6% while next quarter's revenue guidance was 4.8% below consensus. Stocks have faced challenges as investors prioritize near-term cash flows, but hotels, resorts and cruise lines stocks held their ground better than others, with the share prices up 4% on average since the previous earnings results.
