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 continued momentum in both agency and merchant businesses. Room nights and Rental cars have performed impressively. We remain positive about the secular growth trend in the online travel booking market, its strong position in international markets, growth opportunities in the domestic market, good execution, prudent marketing strategy and strong financial position are positives. At the same time, weaker ADRs and airline tickets, macro headwinds, increasing advertising spend and occupancy tax-related litigation remain overhangs. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year." (7/14/2018)
  • 2. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We find Booking Holdings’ shares to be attractively valued compared to our fair value of $2,300. Our target is derived using a five-year DCF, which assumes 10% 5-year pro-forma revenue CAGR, and a long-term EBITDA margin of 44.5%. We also assume a perpetuity growth rate of 3% and a weighted average cost of capital of 10%, consistent with the risk profile of similar large-cap Internet names in our coverage group." (7/10/2018)
  • 3. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "PCLN reported a strong qtr but that was not enough and stock declined 6% after the close. Conservative guidance, as usual, did not help either. While gross bookings did not beat high end of guidance for the 1st time in 11 qtrs, we don’t think PCLN’s fundamentals have changed. With gross bookings up 16% Y/Y (vs EXPE’s +12%), PCLN keeps gaining market share. We see any pullback in the stock as a buying opportunity. We maintain our Buy and raise PT to $2,300. PCLN reported a strong qtr with rev up 18% Y/Y to $3.02B vs. cons ests of $2.99B. Adj EBITDA of $974MM was ahead of Street ests of $927MM and guidance of $860-905MM. Non-GAAP EPS of $15.14 easily beat Street’s $14.20 and guidance of $13.30-$14.00. Gross bookings hit $20.80B in Q2 (+16% Y/Y / +19% ex-FX), slightly below cons ests of $21.06B but close to the high end of guidance. We believe this was a fluke and not a sign of fundamental changes. Adj EBITDA margin improved 40bps and remains 2x+ EXPE’s. Agency bookings at $17.95B were slightly below Street’s $18.17B, while Merchant bookings of $2.85B came in slightly above cons at $2.80B. Bookings growth was driven by 21% Y/Y growth in hotel room nights and 12% Y/Y growth in rental car days, offsetting 9% decline in air tickets." (8/4/2017)
