Should Investors Consider Buying Airbnb Or Expedia Stock?

Should Investors Consider Buying Airbnb Or Expedia Stock?

Lido Advisors' Gina Sanchez and CEO Todd Gordon discussed whether Airbnb Inc ABNB or Expedia Group Inc EXPE is the better buy at current levels Tuesday on CNBC's "Trading Nation." 

Airbnb Vs. Expedia: The trade for the first half of the year was "growth at a reasonable price" and Expedia fit the bill, Sanchez said.

The trade for the second half of the year is growth and Airbnb presents a significant growth opportunity for investors, she said.

Gordon told CNBC that he prefers Expedia with a $24 billion market cap over Airbnb with a $90 billion market cap. From a technical perspective, Airbnb is struggling to find support near its IPO price at $140, he said.

On the other hand, the technical setup for Expedia looks pretty good, Gordon noted.
