    Expedia (EXPE +2.9%) outperforms after Cantor predicts the company will beat Q4 estimates when it reports on Tuesday, thanks to unchanged U.S. and European hotel booking trends. Both Expedia and archrival Priceline fell yesterday after the latter was downgraded by Morgan Stanley. Expedia skyrocketed in October following its Q3 beat, and has continued to rally since.

    Priceline (PCLN -2.4%) and Expedia (EXPE -1.6%) slide after Morgan Stanley's Scott Devitt downgrades Priceline to Equalweight. Devitt sees Priceline posting a bookings CAGR of 19% over the next 3 years (down from 46% over the last 3) and also expects EBITDA margin to fall by 220 bps over this time. Tougher European competition from Expedia, Google's (GOOG) online travel efforts, rising travel search ad costs (good for Google), and a shift to mobile bookings (Priceline is better at monetizing PC activity) are also concerns.

    The FTC has signed off on Priceline's (PCLN) $1.8B acquisition of Kayak (KYAK). Though the combined clout of Priceline/Kayak in the online travel search/bookings space will be huge, the presence of competition from Expedia, Google, and others seems to have mollified regulators. Priceline has said Kayak will be run as an independent company led by its current management.

    Priceline (PCLN +1.6%) opens higher following an upgrade to Buy from BofA/Merrill. the firm, which has raised its PT to $770, thinks Priceline offers more potential upside to 2013 estimates than Expedia (EXPE), foresees strong international growth over the next 3 years even as European growth slows down, believes Europe will have a modest 2H economic recovery, and is positive on the Kayak acquisition. Priceline has been range-bound since late August.

    Microsoft (MSFT), EMC, Expedia (EXPE), and Terex (TEX) all generate free cash flow well in excess of their earnings, notes Barron's, something it thinks value investors should give heed to. Microsoft trades at 9.6x estimated EPS for its current fiscal year, but just 7.9x FCF. For EMC, the multiples are 15.1x and 11.5x; for Expedia, 19.2x and 15.2x; and for Terex, 13.3x and 6.9x. Also, though by no means a value play, Red Hat (RHT) trades at 23x next year's FCF, compared with 40x EPS.

    Having just sold his position in TripAdvisor to John Malone's Liberty Interactive, Barry Diller promises to "stay engaged" with Expedia (EXPE) as long as he's "sentient." The 70-year-old Diller remains Expedia's chairman, and has profited nicely from its 2012 run-up.

    Priceline (PCLN -4.7%) and Expedia (EXPE -3.5%) are off after Deutsche downgrades Priceline to Hold on a belief a margin-compressing "Cold War" will break out in European online travel. The culprits: Expedia's growing efforts to acquire customers following an improvement in conversion rates; a declining amount of travel-related Google (GOOG) PC ad clicks thanks to the mobile shift; and the possibility Google will make a stronger travel search push once its regulatory issues are handled.
