Expedia could be made 'obsolete' by voice activated transactions, NYP says

Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said voice activated transactions could eventually make Expedia "obsolete," The New York Post reports, citing comments made last week at the Skift Global Forum conference at Alice Tully Hall. Khosrowshahi said, "As we move over to mobile devices, more transactions will be voice activated, and we would have a hard time making that transition... We are not well armed for that, but we are definitely thinking about it." Reference Link

Piper says online travel agency pullback an opportunity for long-term buyers
As online travel agency stocks Priceline (PCLN), Expedia (EXPE) and TripAdvisor (TRIP) slide amid the broader market weakness following the Brexit vote, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson said the pullback is likely a buying opportunity for long-term investors. European travel is largely intra-country and intra-continent and while the U.K. represents a sizeable, near-7% of Europe's demand, this is not a "catastrophic" portion of Europe's travel business being potentially impacted, Olson tells investors. Noting as well that many believe the actual exit process will take at least two years, Olson believes this slow change will mitigate the most important factor in travel health, which he identifies as consumer sentiment. The firm keeps Overweight ratings on all three OTAs mentioned.

Piper prefers Expedia over Priceline into Q2 results
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says he prefers Expedia (EXPE) over Priceline (PCLN) into the Q2 earnings reports given the latter company's tendency to provide overly conservative guidance in the face of headwinds, namely Brexit. Expedia has a "high degree of flexibility" to maintain its guidance for 35%-45% EBITDA growth in 2016, Olson tells investors in a research note. He reiterates Overweight ratings on Expedia, Priceline and TripAdvisor (TRIP).

trivago IPO to highlight value of core Expedia, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson believes the initial public offering of trivago will highlight the value of Expedia's core business. The planned IPO is a positive from a sum-of-the-parts perspective, but HomeAway's guest booking fee will drive the bulk of value creation and potential EBITDA upside, Olson tells investors in a research note. He reiterates an Overweight rating on Expedia with a $147 price target.
