Can Tripadvisor’s Stock Rebound After An 11% Decline??

view original post

Tripadvisor’s stock (NASDAQ NDAQ : TRIP), an online travel company providing booking for hotel reservations, transportation, lodging, travel experiences, and restaurants, has declined by almost 11% over the last five days (one week) and currently stands at around $23. In comparison, the broader S&P500 index remained largely flat over the same period. The company saw a mixed earnings report, with revenues beating expectations but earnings missing consensus marginally. TRIP’s Q1 revenues grew 113% year-over-year (y-o-y) to $262 million and its adjusted EPS came at a loss of 9 cents compared to a loss of 39 cents in Q1 2021. The company’s stock declined largely due to concerns about rising costs. An increase in direct credit card payment costs, 93% growth in selling and marketing expenses, and increases in general administrative expenses contributed to a 36% y-o-y increase in Q1 operating expenses. While the company did narrow its bottom-line loss significantly, it still could not reach profitability quite yet.

It should be noted that travel trends were favorable in both the categories of Experiences & Dining, as well as Hotels, Media, & Platforms in the quarter. During Q1, the two businesses experienced growth of 229% and 82%, respectively. In fact, the average monthly user base also grew 27% to reach around 75% of its 2019 level. Tripadvisor has other businesses, such as Viator and TheFork, which could offer a lot of value. This is because both these businesses saw a faster recovery than the main Tripadvisor hotel business in 2021. While Viator offers travel experiences on its platform, TheFork (LaFourchette) is a restaurant reservation app primarily available in Europe, similar to OpenTable for the U.S. market.
