Expedia, Inc. (EXPE)

    Priceline (PCLN -0.3%) and Expedia (EXPE -0.8%) pared the losses they saw after the Kayak (KYAK +28.1%) deal was announced, while TripAdvisor (TRIP +0.6%) fully erased its decline. Nomura's Brian Nowak points out Kayak could take a hit if Expedia (its biggest advertiser) cuts back on spending in response, and that TripAdvisor's 2013 estimates could be at risk if Priceline cuts its ad spending now that it has Kayak as a channel. As far as Priceline goes, Nowak likes the deal's ability to lower Priceline's dependence on Google traffic. (previous)

    Expedia (EXPE) -4.3% AH on news Priceline (PCLN) is acquiring Kayak (KYAK). Investors are likely worried the direct integration of Priceline's travel listings and bidding platform with Kayak's search engine will hurt Expedia's market share. TripAdvisor (TRIP) -3.3% AH, likely on concerns the Priceline deal could end its travel reviews partnership with Kayak. Priceline is holding a call to discuss the merger (webcast).

    As expected, the solid earnings reports from Priceline and TripAdvisor, have lit a torch under sector players such as Ctrip (CTRP +1.3%), Expedia (EXPE +2.2%), Travelzoo (TZOO +2.8%), Orbitz (OWW -0.6%), and Kayak (KYAK +3.5%) in early trading. The general theme is the online travel business is stabilizing as it adjusts its model to dialed-down expectations in Europe and Asia.

    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)

    A judge in Hawaii rules online travel sites won't have to pay the state hotel room tax for a period of time that covers 1999 to 2011. The ruling could save the companies close to $700M in back costs. Clearer sailing: EXPE, PCLN, OWW.

    Travelzoo (TZOO) -17% after warning it expects Q3 revenue of $35M-$35.5M and EPS of $0.20-$0.22, below a consensus of $38.9M and $0.27. The travel deals providers says its hotel search and group-buying voucher solutions aren't "meeting the needs of hotels and users well enough," and is in active talks to buy a hotel bookings site to shore up its offerings. Some online travel names are adding to yesterday's losses. PCLN -1.4%. EXPE -1.8%.

    Expedia (EXPE +4.6%) pops after Deutsche upgrades shares to Buy, citing an improving bookings conversion rate. Also, Cantor started coverage yesterday afternoon with a Buy, as part of a broader sector launch. The firm argues Expedia is reasonably priced at 9x estimated 2012 EBITDA, and thinks the online travel services firm "is still in the early stages of a business turnaround."

    Airline companies begin to offer more deals on their own websites in an effort to lure customers away from travel sites. Frontier Airlines is the latest carrier to add incentives for booking flights directly by cutting frequent flyer miles and imposing more fees on off-site bookings. If the trend continues, online travel players such as PCLN, TRIP, OWW, and EXPE could feel a sting.
