    Upgrades and downgrades mean something

    By manipulators you mean the pumpers? The gusy who love EXPE but have a price barely above $40?

    Even those that upgrade to HOLD (yes HOLD) didn't indicate large price appreciation. In fact the target price is well below $40.

    Stock was only inflated by a short squeeze and as that disipates, and it has, EXPE slids back to mid $30s.

    Any their growth was 12%, not 40%+, but 12%. Reason to celebrate? Yes, if you had it at $32 and can unload now. Expect a hifger stock price? Not a chance. Pigs get slaughtered.

    And now they have to buy obscure companies to find growth because the core business can't grow much. How many players do the same things as Expedia? Too many to count. Plus, to be fair I once user and once I am settled in my hotel I go direct as I do with my travelling with Delta. Going direct to the source is much eaaier and you build rapport with the vendor.

    EXPE had it's best days - and lucky to have them. From here it's ho-hum and a drop back to it's fair value.
