Expedia Stock: Its 3Q16 Performance

WRITTEN BY Ally Schmidt

Expedia stock has risen

After a disappointing first half of 2016, Expedia (EXPE) stock has had a good run in 3Q16. It has risen almost 10.0%. Priceline Group (PCLN) stock has risen 18.0% in the same period, and Ctrip.com International (CTRP) has risen 13.0%. Maybe investors are finally noticing the cheap valuations.

Increased investments by hedge funds and activist investors such as PAR Capital have also helped the run. On the other hand, concerns over instant booking monetization have led to TripAdvisor (TRIP) stock falling about 1.7% in 3Q16.
