  1. I should know better about Thai news. I bought MINT recently thinking tourism is and will be ok. I even read they had 90% occupancy. Hummm. I knew that was not likely.
    So my question is…’Is tourism coming back soon which makes MINT a good stock to buy’. Is there another way to play recovery?

  2. Today in Chiang Mai the tourists are back. They are all Thai but they are staying in the best hotels and spending on food. In my opinion this is the only tourist trade that will recover in Thailand. The international tourist will not return in numbers for 3 or 4 years. Even then dividends will be low as the Hotel industry pays down its debts. Unfortunately a vaccination has not shown yet that you are not a carrier and spreader. When we assured of that, tourism will improve.
    My recovery stocks are electronic engineering and pet food exporters.

    • A dictum I’ve had for a decade or so….when a situation goes from $hit to bad, thats when you make your best returns in share prices….

      as for tourism….domestic tourism is ~40% of total tourism in 2019. Major players and everyone’s fav boutique hotel are going to be fine, the rest will be gone. This applies across all industries. Roll-up of market share.
