Jefferies initiated coverage on Marriott International (NYSE: MAR) with a Hold rating and a $34 price target.

Jefferies commented, "Marriott's domestic prowess is attractive, as is its asset-light model. We forecast recurring double-digit earnings growth, despite limited exposure to faster-growing Emerging Markets. However, we think Marriott is fairly valued for what is a more defensive, US-centric operator. Hence, we initiate with a Hold recommendation."

Marriott International closed at $24.43 on Friday.
