Marriott estimates its equity beta to be 1.11. Based on this information, if Marriott had no debt in their capital structure, I believe their equity beta would be lower, more in line with the S&P 500, because adding debt to a firm increases leverage in their operations. If a firm has more leverage, they have more room to take risks and this reflects a higher beta, which in turn leads to greater returns.

Even if half the property tax can be expunged through sale of the unused lot, these expenses would still be %8.8 of sales. * Even with the relatively high expenses, Rhodes seems to be harmed most by his lackadaisical inventory management. His 2008 gross profit is 3.67% lower than the industry average (or 1.1% of sales).

Net oncome does not tell the full story, nor does it truly represent the overall stability.

The second thing is the almost six fold increase in the current installments of long-term debt. The company has eliminated nearly $1.7 billion in short-term debt, as well as successfully reducing the amount of payable income by nearly a billion dollars. This action will help the company down the road as fewer liabilities will result in less cash outflow, and place the company in a position to manage through the construction downturn.
