Priceline (PCLN) now +9.5% AH following its Q3 beat. Q4 guidance is for EPS of $6.12-$6.57, in-line with a $6.34 consensus and fine with investors worried about Europe and (increasingly) the U.S. Total bookings rose 25% Y/Y in Q3 - international +30%, domestic +7% - only a slight slowdown from Q2. Q4 bookings are expected to grow 21%-28% Y/Y, with 27%-35% international growth offsetting flat domestic growth. Between Priceline and TripAdvisor, online travel names such as EXPE, TZOO, OWW, and KYAK could have a good day tomorrow. (PR)
