    Why sooooo cheap price to revenue growth, could that explain why no options because it's too extremely cheap and bankers the option writers would certainly loose money due to DESP guarantee huge upside?

    Surprised no news source has picked up on registration filing for Tiger Global's 43% of DESP that happened last week. Tiget is winding down fund that made DESP investment and distributing all shares to the underlying limited partners. That explains the massive jump in volume over past few days. Many LP's (endowments, etc) are required to sell shares received from VC's as soon as received. Regarding questions of why this thing is cheap, in addition to that short term factors:
    - extreme volatility in South American markets particularly home market of Argentina due to depreciation of local currencies, extreme interest rates, Turkey, etc.
    - DESP sacrificing margins to grab market share during this period of weakness, probably smart long term
    - more low margin intra-country travel bookings versus more profitable overseas package bookings
    due to weakness in Brazil, Argentina and strong dollar meaning overseas packages much more expensive in local currencies

    Will be curious to see how much stock they buy back under the $75 million authorized buyback plan. Wish they wouldn't do adjusted EBITDA where they drop out stock based compensation as if it isn't a regularly recurring real expense.

    Why is this stock $17-18 per share ? 52 week 30+ should be on fire @ $31.00 or more!

    Despegar is total buyout bait for Priceline. Priceline failed last time they tried to get into South America. They can pickup DESP for stock representing only 2-3% of its market cap. Real easy way in to acquire the largest online travel service in the region. If DESP stock stays here, it WILL be sold. Just a matter of to whom, Priceline, Expedia, Ctrip etc.

    I wonder if the long term performance of a stock is inversely proportionate to the amount of mindless chatter on these boards. Good discussions here. Really appreciating Yahoo Finance Insights.
