trivago jumps with Deutsche seeing signs of Booking.com 'inching back'

Shares of trivago (TRVG) are moving higher after Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley reported that Priceline's (PLCN) Booking.com advertisements are back on the trivago site in Germany. Walmsley, in a research note last night to investors, said he sees signs that Booking.com is "inching back to trivago, on the margin." The key advertiser returned to German points of sales on trivago.de after several weeks of essentially being absent from the site, the analyst wrote. Since late December, Walmsley has observed Booking.com ads back on the site in Germany as it continues an elevated level of testing with its ad spend on trivago. He sees the return to more normalized bidding levels in Germany as a positive and continues to view the risk/reward on trivago shares as "compelling." The analyst reiterated a Buy rating on the stock with a $10 price target. trivago in early trading is up 8%, or 57c, to $7.88.

Morgan Stanley would be buyer of Priceline on weakness in sympathy with Expedia
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak noted that Expedia's (EXPE) slower room night growth, decision to lean into investments and trivago's (TRVG) challenges are all impacting its profitability. However, he lays out three reasons he would be a buyer of any Priceline weakness that follows Expedia's report: (1) the U.S. makes up only about 10% of Priceline's global room nights, so U.S weather should not have a large impact; (2) Expedia did not call out any macro or online travel penetration challenges and called the overall environment "reasonably solid;" (3) He believes any pullback in ad spend on trivago played an immaterial role in Expedia's room night miss.

trivago upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Mark May upgraded trivago (TRVG) to Buy saying the 66% selloff since July has created a favorable risk/reward profile. Priceline's (PCLN) Booking.com recently reverted back to displaying "regional" landing pages on trivago, which suggests a willingness to spend more with trivago in order to acquire higher converting customers, May tells investors in a research note. He now sees a positive bias to trivago estimates and upped his price target for the shares to $9.50 from $9.

The analyst left the company's analyst day with increased confidence that the worst is likely behind it with regard to bid reductions on the platform.
