Echoing earlier sentiment of Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan stated in a note Thursday that the Priceline (NASDAQ: PCLN) investment in Ctrip.com (NASDAQ: CTRP) would be mutually beneficial for both companies.

JP Morgan said it thinks the deal could enhance quality and margins, while making it more difficult for other firms to establish a presence in the overseas travel market in China.

Shares of Ctrip are up more than 11 percent at $67.60, while Priceline is last quoted up about one percent at $1,292.
