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’ 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)
  • 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." (8/9/2018)
