4. What are the reasons to buy EXPE? Why should I buy EXPE stock?

Here are the reasons to buy EXPE stock:

  • Expedia has a dominant network effect that we think only a few can enjoy, and recent acquisitions stand to add to the company's network advantage.
  • Mobile application use is rapidly increasing, and Expedia is positioned well (45% of its traffic comes from mobile).
  • Outsize online travel booking growth during the past few years in China and emerging markets should continue over the next decade, given low penetration levels and increased online use. Additionally, in-destination and vacation rental bookings are driving strong industry growth.
  • EXPE profitability is improving. The YoY profit margin change was 0.54 percentage points. See EXPE profitability chart.
  • EXPE PEG ratio (P/E adjusted for growth) is 0.73, which is low compared to its industry peers’ PEG ratios. See EXPE PEG chart.
  • EXPE average analyst rating is Buy. See EXPE analyst rating chart.
  • EXPE cash to debt ratio is 0.54, higher than the average industry (0.13) and sector (0.13) cash to debt ratio. See EXPE cash to debt chart.

5. What are the reasons to sell EXPE? Why should I sell EXPE stock?

Let's look at the reasons to sell EXPE stock (i.e., the bear case):

  • TripAdvisor's Instant Booking platform has gained traction with U.S.-branded hotels; therefore, we estimate it to have a 2-percentage-point impact on Expedia’s booking growth in the near term (2017).
  • Expedia has large exposure to the more mature U.S. travel market (around 60% of total bookings), where large brands constitute 70% of all rooms; the scale of this market could drive bookings away from OTAs and toward hotelier direct websites.
  • Competition from existing peers (TripAdvisor and Google) and new entrants (Facebook) could meaningfully affect Expedia's growth outlook.
  • EXPE stock price ($96.79) is close to the 52-week high ($103.97). Perhaps now is a good time to sell? See EXPE price chart.
  • EXPE quarterly revenue growth was -82.00%, lower than the industry and sector average revenue growth (1.08% and 0.78%, respectively). See EXPE revenue growth chart.
  • EXPE forward P/E ratio is 65.30, which is high compared to its industry peers’ P/E ratios. See EXPE forward P/E ratio chart.
  • EXPE Price/Book ratio is 8.08, which is high compared to its industry peers’ P/B ratios. See EXPE forward Price/Book ratio chart.
  • EXPE Price/Sales ratio is 1.54, which is high compared to its industry peers’ P/S ratios. See EXPE forward Price/Sales ratio chart.
  • EXPE short share of float is 12.78%. The stock is much more frequently shorted than the average industry, sector or S&P 500 stock. See EXPE short share of float chart.
  • EXPE short interest (days to cover the shorts) ratio is 5.1. The stock garners more short interest than the average industry, sector or S&P 500 stock. See EXPE short interest ratio chart.
