As might be imagined, there are numerous resources available on the internet and elsewhere that provide a wealth of information on the hospitality industry. Care always needs to be exercised as far as possible in verifying the data they provide (and, often, the claims made for data, or claims made more generally).

They are Bloomberg and Yahoo! Finance both of which can be customized in a variety of ways to reflect interests in stock market performance. Both also provide a useful financial news service.
