What are Wall Street analysts saying about Booking stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Booking stock: 1. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We expect 1Q RNG to be slightly above Street expectations but to show a sizable deceleration Q/Q, largely reflecting a hit in its core European market from a tough macro and uncertainty around Brexit. That said, our read on Easter holiday booking trends suggest holiday demand remains intact, which coupled with a favorable Brexit outcome may ease the path for growth in 2Q-4Q. If growth continues to lag in 2019, we see scope for upside to our above-consensus EPS. At ~12.8x fwd EBITDA, buyback authorization ($4.5B) and a differentiated consumer offering, we find the risk/reward attractive. 1Q Room Night Growth (RNG) likely slow Q/Q but come in modestly above muted Street expectations." (4/4/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Booking Holdings’ increasing booked room nights and strong momentum in global accommodation space are contributing well to its gross bookings growth. Further, robust agency model continues to aid the company’s position in the international markets. Also, strong efforts toward ramping up of merchant business remain positive. We believe secular growth trend in the online travel booking market, growing mobile usage penetration and improving ADRs are tailwinds. Moreover, the company’s strong position in international markets, growth opportunities in the domestic market and good execution of marketing strategies are major positives. However, sluggishness in the rental car days poses risk. Also, rising advertising spend and occupancy tax litigation are concerns. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to in the past one year." (1/11/2019) Has Booking been receiving favorable news coverage?
