What are analysts saying about TripAdvisor stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about TripAdvisor stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "TripAdvisor is one of the largest online travel research companies in the world.  Over the last one year, the stock has underperformed the Zacks characterised Electronic Commerce Industry. However, the secular growth trend in the online travel space, the company’s solid fundamentals, growth initiatives, partnerships to boost hotel bookings, strong focus on developing its mobile products, expansion into the international restaurant reservation space and improvement in user growth and engagement, especially related to mobile devices are likely to help the company to achieve desired results. Macro headwinds, increasing competition and uncertainty regarding the timeline for recovery of investments remain overhangs." (8/8/2017)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "1Q was below expectations, with revenue of $372M (+6% Y/Y) vs. (FactSet) consensus estimate of $376M. EBITDA was $73M vs. consensus of $74M, while." (5/10/2017)
  • 3. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "Late Monday TRIP's Chairman noted TRIP takeout potential and his view that BABA, FB, & AMZN may be acquirers in the space. Our thoughts: (1) We view the comments as a bad sign for TRIP fundamentals; (2) we expect increased takeout speculation; (3) "Meta Wars" challenges make a sale at $40+ difficult before year-end, but outlook could improve longer-term if product & brand initiatives succeed." (3/8/2017)
  • 4. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We downgrade TRIP to underperform because: 1) Instant Booking's business model (i.e., pay after the stay) has lower ROIs than expected; 2) TRIP's CPMs on mobile are monetizing at 1/3 the rate of desktop - a revenue headwind; 3) TRIP's strategic pivot from review site to booking engine is proving more expensive than hoped; 4) TRIP can't win a marketing war because even if TRIP spends 100% of their 2017 projected revenue of $1.6B, this would be less than half PCLN's or EXPE's marketing; 5) guidance for double-digit revenue growth coupled with flat to down EBITDA implies no incremental revenue is benefiting shareholders in 2017, adding risk; and 6) at current trading levels, TRIP looks expensive at 3.7x 2017 revenue, 17.8x EV/EBITDA and at a P/E of 39x. We think TRIP is worth $37-38/share, and thus we are downgrading to underperform." (2/28/2017)
