Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry downgraded Expedia (EXPE) to Neutral from Buy with a price target of $120, down from $140. The analyst expects continued pressure on the company's advertising returns and believes the window for incremental efficiency as a result of competitor pullbacks has lapped. Further, the customer acquisition environment, particularly search, will continue to evolve in ways that further squeeze online travel agencies, Terry tells investors in a research note. The analyst says the trade-off between growth and margins in online travel continues to deteriorate amid "healthy" consumer and business travel demand, high occupancy rates, "muted" hotel room supply growth relative to occupancy, and growing competition from sources of traffic, particularly Google (GOOG, GOOGL). He remains Sell-rated on TripAdvisor (TRIP) and Neutral-rated on Booking Holdings (BKNG) and Trivago (TRVG).

JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth raised the firm's price target on Alphabet to $2,575 from $2,390 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. Even with the stock up 30% year-to-date, Alphabet remains one of the analyst's best ideas. Anmuth remains positive on the company's "improving top and bottom line trajectory and potential for bigger capital returns." He updated his sum-of-the-parts valuation, which suggests a market cap approaching $2 trillion, or $2,857 per share, 25% above where shares currently trade.
