Hi Joe,

Many shares are low at the moment, I don't think CDL hotels has been
singled out. The NTA isn't as important as other factors like earnings per
share and cashflow, expected future earnings, general market interest in a
company etc (by the way, some earnings per share are misleading at first
glance for example they may have been achieved by selling off assets etc,
although I don't think CDL are in this category). The NTA is more relevant
if the companies assets are relatively liquid (ie. may make a good takeover
target or may make it easier for a company to change direction), but I
don't know if there are many companies around ready to snap up hotels at
the moment. Personally, I see CDL hotels as a reasonable share to hold for
the long term given the bright outlook for tourism in NZ and their
reasonable p/e ratio.
