What are Wall Street analysts saying about Booking stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Booking stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Booking Holdings is benefiting from expanding alternative accommodation business. This bodes well for its growing footprint in both international as well as domestic regions. Further, the company’s strong efforts toward ramping up the merchant business are major positives. Additionally, Booking Holdings’ expanding payment platform is acting as a tailwind. Further, growing usage of mobile by travelers for their travel planning is another positive. Also, integration with Rentalcars.com has started benefiting the company. Additionally, strengthening flight capabilities are contributing well. However, continued softness in agency business remains a headwind. Further, the company has withdrawn its guidance for the current quarter due to coronavirus led disruptions in the travel space. The stock has underperformed its industry over a year." (3/26/2020)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We remain cautious, but do not have a draconian view and thus reiterate our In Line rating. Our PT moves lower to $44, which includes an NPV hit of $2.8 Bn related to upcoming litigation (would equate to ~8x EBITDA if you adjusted for fine as debt – we will be using this methodology broadly for group going forward)." (8/11/2019)
  • 3. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We expect 2Q RNG to be slightly above Street expectations but to remain impacted by a weak European macro and moderation in global growth. Within Europe, we view slowing economic growth in Germany and Italy as modest negatives and see marginal benefit from extended Brexit deadline. Given the cloudy macro picture, we expect greater European traveler flows to lower cost destinations, contributing to ADR decline. While the macro is likely to remain a NT overhang on growth, at ~12x in buyback authorization and a sticky offering, we find the risk/reward attractive for LT holders." (7/18/2019)
