    I'm confused

    Did EXPE report earnings or did PCLN? Typically when your competitor misses the number, but from Trip Advisor people are obviously spending a lot of time on travel research, so that should be a great sign for Priceline. I used to use Expedia, orbitz, hotwire, but I've booked most of my trips on PCLN or gone through Kayak. To me that means that PCLN should see a very strong quarter.
    I just don't understand why PCLN would give up its entire day's gains for its competitor missing. That would be like Verizon dropping when AT&T misses, doesn't make sense.

    Sentiment: Hold

    • EXPE had a huge cost problem in the quarter based on increased marketing and managing an acquisition. Their lackluster performance could be specific to them and not be indicative of a sector problem.

    • let me explain: With these travel stocks, one beat means it's looking good for everybody. yesterday Trip Advisor beat the earnings and hence all travel stocks were up today, BUT traders especially watch EXPE because there is a direct corelation between EXPE & PCLNs earnings. Now watch how PCLN will tank until its earnings. Traders buy or sell PCLN based on EXPE numbers.

    • EXPE is dragging down PCLN after hours. Same business.

    • you are a MORON. PCLN is up 800 bucks in the last few years and you are still being a pompous greedy weirdo?

      • I'm not sure why you need to attack me, I just find it funny that Expedia had higher rev, but also way higher expenses which is why they missed. That is the perfect scenario for PCLN, as they should see the same or higher increase in rev percentage, but their costs are under control. We should see PCLN beat on both the top and bottom line, while giving good guidance as Europe improves. Keep in mind that PCLN reaching 1,000 per share is nothing with the anemic float they have from the reverse split they did over a decade ago.

    • Momo traders always bail when the condition of the industry a company is in looks to be in doubt. In their minds EXPE could be a tell of trouble for the online travel industry and PCLN, so they sell. Only time will tell if they are wrong to sell. Are EXPE's problems PCLN's problems? I don't think so. But no one knows for sure until PCLN announces earnings.
