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 riding on improving gross bookings. The company continues to witness solid growth in the booked room nights. Its rising mobile share and growing accommodation business are aiding total room nights bookings. Further, strong efforts toward ramping up of merchant business remain positive. We believe secular growth trend in the online travel booking market and growing mobile usage penetration 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. Notably, the stock has outperformed its industry on a year-to-date basis. However, sluggishness in the rental car days poses risk. Moreover, macro headwinds, increasing advertising spend and occupancy tax-related litigation remain concerns." (9/12/2019)
  • 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)
