Ctrip.Com (NASDAQ:CTRP), which is essentially China's version of Expedia (NASDAQ:EXPE) or Tripadvisor (NASDAQ:TRIP), pulled off a standout fourth quarter. Somehow the company has been able to manage through the slowdown in the economy. So on the earnings news, Ctrip stock spiked by 15%. This puts the year-to-date return at 45%.Source: Thomas Galvez via FlickrHere's a look at the quarter: Net revenues jumped by 22% to RMB7.6 billion and earnings came to 9 cents a share. As for the Wall Street consensus, it called for RMB7.19 and a loss of 24 cents a share. So yes, it was a convincing beat.Consider that there was strength in the accommodation reservation segment, with lots of traction in the low-end hotel market. Air ticketing was also robust and the international business was a nice source of growth.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Dow Jones Stocks to Buy In terms of the user base, it remains healthy. The transacting users for Ctrip and Qunar came to 135 million, up by a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 25% over the past two years. Interestingly enough, the demographics of the base continues to skew younger, with about 50% at under 30. This compares to a third in 2013. This is an encouraging indication that the Ctrip brand remains relevant. CTRP Stock and New InitiativesTo help boost engagement, Ctrip launched Trip Moments in December. It's a social media platform for customers to communicate about travel. Already Trip Moments has logged near one million posts about more than 6,000 destinations.But yes, there have been other important changes. In fact, for the past year, the company has been focused on a restructuring. One of the priorities has been to become more customer centric. To this end, the company has increased transparency and invested more in customer service. Keep in mind that Ctrip receives more than one million phone calls and ten million instant messages every day; they are answered within 20 seconds on average and closed at first contact 90% of the time. As a result, Ctrip has seen an impressive 35% increase in the Net Promoter Score (NPS).Next, CTRP has developed a new version of its platform, which now includes more small and medium size suppliers. This has meant more opportunities for monetization.Finally, there has been more emphasis on brick-and-mortar stores. Note that there are more than 7,000 franchises across 200 cities in China and a majority are in lower-tier cities. Bottom Line on CTRP StockWhen it comes to Ctrip stock, the long-term prospects do look promising. This is what CEO James Jianzhang Liang said on the earnings call:"From a macro perspective, it is projected that urbanization rate in China will increase to 70% to 80% from the current 50% within 10 years to 20 years, reaching the level of most middle-income countries. This translates to 10 million to 20 million predominantly young people moving to cities to live and work each year, and indicates that there is a huge consumption capacity still to be unlocked."But the short-term may be another matter for CTRP stock. Just this week the Chinese government announced that it was reducing the 2019 growth rate forecast for GDP from 6.5% to 6%. This is despite higher spending and lower taxes.Besides, CTRP stock is no longer cheap. After the big-run up since mid-December, the forward price-to-earnings multiple is at 34X. What's more, Wall Street's price target on CTRP stock is at $34.44, which is at a 14% discount to current price.Given all this, it's probably best to wait on this. It does look like much of the good news is already baked into the valuation.Tom Taulli is the author of High-Profit IPO Strategies, All About Commodities and All About Short Selling.

For the last few years, the performance from Yelp (NYSE:YELP) hasn't been quite good enough. Yelp is growing: Adjusted EBITDA rose 16% in 2018, but growth was priced in. The YELP stock price is down 14% over the past year, and still sits below mid-2015 highs.Source: Shutterstock Yelp management clearly believes that will change. Executives laid out aggressive targets in conjunction with Q4 earnings last month. If Yelp hits those targets (or comes close) the stock has tremendous upside. But the initial reaction to those plans suggests that investors are skeptical. Recent history suggests they have good reason. * 7 Chinese Stocks to Buy for the 2019 Rebound Yelp's New TargetsIn the fourth quarter release, Yelp detailed its targets for the next five years. Revenue is expected to rise in the "mid-teens" annually through 2023. Adjusted EBITDA margins are expected to rise 2-3 points in 2019 and at a similar pace for the following four years, ending at 30-35% against 2018's 19%.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIf Yelp hits those targets, earnings will soar. Assuming 15% annual top-line growth, revenue should double over the five years to $1.9 billion. Margins of 32.5%, the midpoint of the out-year target, suggest Adjusted EBITDA of $617 million.That's more than triple 2018's $183 million. Assuming a 24% tax rate and a modest rise in depreciation and amortization, net income would reach the range of $400 million. That's close to $5 per YELP share.However an analyst runs these numbers, they suggest enormous upside. A 12x EBITDA multiple, plus cash, gets the stock to $100. A 20x P/E multiple - again, plus cash - gets YELP past that point.The current YELP stock price sits below $37. As such, there's a reasonable case that if Yelp management is right, YELP stock could triple. And the company is putting its money where its mouth is: the company doubled its share buyback authorization after Q4, and pledged to buy back $250 million of Yelp shares in the first half of the year alone. The Reaction to Yelp EarningsOf course, it's also reasonably clear that investors don't trust Yelp management. YELP stock actually soared in after-hours trading following the Q4 report. In regular trading the next day, however, the YELP stock price actually dipped modestly. An analyst upgrade gave the stock a boost, but it has weakened in recent sessions, and now trades well below its pre-earnings price.That seems surprising given solid 2019 guidance, the long-term targets, and an impressive Q4. (Adjusted EPS of $0.37 crushed consensus estimates of $0.10.) But investors do have some reason to be skeptical.Indeed, there are concerns with the Yelp business model, dating back to those I detailed on this site back in 2017. Yelp is projecting strong revenue growth but activity on the site isn't increasing all that fast. Figures from the 10-K suggest that the number of reviews on Yelp has risen only 6-7% on average in the past three years.The aggressive long-term targets are somewhat belied by recent performance. Revenue rose just 11% in 2018. Adjusted EBITDA margins were flat. Yelp is projecting quite an acceleration in the business, in terms of both the top line and margins.Most of the operating leverage is supposed to come from sales and marketing, which Yelp believes can be leveraged by ten full points, the majority of the projected margin expansion.That goal depends on one shift; one that Yelp hasn't been able to master so far. Self-Serve and YELP StockFor Yelp to leverage sales and marketing spend, two things have to happen. First, revenue has to continue to grow. Secondly, Yelp has to drive that revenue growth while moderating its spending on sales and marketing.That's obviously easier said than done. That's particularly true given that Yelp's model requires intensive sales and marketing spend, which accounted for over half of 2018 revenue.The way to do this is to drive a "self-serve" model. At the moment, Yelp is selling most of its services - which undercuts the value (and operating leverage) of the platform. It's a model that looks a more like Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN) than Match Group (NASDAQ:MTCH) or TripAdvisor (NASDAQ:TRIP). That's obviously not a good thing.So the pivot to more self-serve revenue makes some sense. The question is whether it will work. Yelp already is struggling with higher cancellations. And local advertising competition remains intense, with Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) an obvious rival and myriad other smaller and mid-sized offerings (including from newspapers).The concern here is obvious. Yelp is having trouble keeping customers even while it spends 50%+ of sales attracting and maintaining those customers. Can it do better in terms of retention while spending less (on a relative basis)?Investors don't believe it can. Right now, that skepticism makes some sense. But if Yelp can show some progress and regain investor confidence YELP stock is too cheap. That's a big 'if' - but it no doubt would lead to big rewards.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
