Shares of Expedia (NASDAQ: EXPE) are leading the online travel sector higher Tuesday afternoon, now up 2.5 percent on very heavy volume. With about three hours left in the trading session, more than 6 million shares of Expedia have already traded hands. Normal daily volume for Expedia is usually just over 4 million shares.

Deutsche Bank's Ross Sandler issued a research note this morning suggesting Expedia has won back the top spot from Tripadvisor (NYSE: TRIP). The analyst cited recent proprietary data. Sandler believes Tripadvisor's shift toward a meta search has caused instability within the company.

Sandler maintains a Buy rating and $66 price target on shares of Expedia.

With the stock last trading at $50.97, Sandler's price target implies potential upside of about 29 percent.
