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 good 4Q results, which are likely to come above Street expectations when the company reports on Tue., Feb. 27 (post-close). Our view is supported by analysis of 4Q data points, including global search, meta-search performance and hotel pricing trends. Despite a potential risk to outlook from further changes to ad spending, we’re cautiously optimistic for 1Q, given a) easier room nights comps, b) signs of stabilization in meta-search channel and traffic trends to date, c) favorable Easter shift and c) greater visibility for mgt. into 1Q (with 2 months of bookings already completed)." (2/26/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Priceline.com 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, Priceline’s 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. Over the last 12-month period, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to." (1/10/2018)
  • 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)
