3 Firms Comment On Expedia Heading Into Q2 Earnings Release

Share:

Expedia (NASDAQ: EXPE) is scheduled to report its second quarter earnings after Thursday's market close. In the run-up to the release, a number of analyst have issued noted describing their view on what to expect.

The consensus estimates for Expedia's second quarter results are calling for an EPS of $0.76 with revenues of $1.44 billion.

Deutsche Bank
"We expect Expedia to report one of their strongest quarters in some time."

The analysts at Deutsche Bank believe Expedia faces "easy" comps due to 1) seasonality around Easter, 2) last year's miss on the TripAdvisor meta transition, 3) Qunar-eLong traffic issues from last year, 4) Hotwire lapping its tough quarter and 5) the expense side of the full first quarter of Travelocity.

"Expectations are high for Expedia, and we believe the company can meet them."

FBR
"We see a healthy quarter taking shape for Expedia with our check pointing to solid domestic room night growth."

FBR is looking for Expedia to post 30-35 percent domestic bookings growth for the quarter, compared to a consensus of 25 percent.

Cantor Fitzgerald
"We expect Expedia to report strong second quarter 2014 results, in line with our estimates."

The analysts at Cantor are looking for revenue of $1,467 million, EBITDA of $229 million and a normalized EPS of $0.83.
