12:35 EDTAWAY, PCLN, EXPEAnalyst downplays near-term threat to HomeAway from AirBnB
AirBnB, which connects travelers with non-traditional lodging options, does not pose a near-term threat to either HomeAway (AWAY) or online travel agencies, FBR Capital contended in a note to investors earlier. WHAT'S NEW: After media outlets reported that AirBnB was seeking to raise $400M-$500M at a company valuation of $10B, some are concerned about whether the company will hurt HomeAway or online travel agents, FBR Capital analyst Jake Fuller wrote. AirBnB - which matches travelers with spare apartments and rooms, as well as more exotic lodging options - operates in different markets than HomeAway, Fuller explained. AirBnB focuses primarily on urban locations, while HomeAway concentrates on enabling travelers to stay at peoples' second homes in vacation locations, the analyst wrote. Meanwhile, AirBnB is probably increasing the number of travelers who utilize traditional lodging options offered by the online travel agencies, the analyst stated. While that could change in the future as AirBnB looks to enhance the appeal of shared accommodations, the company does not threaten Expedia (EXPE) and priceline.com (PCLN) in the near-term, according to Fuller. He kept a Market Perform rating on HomeAway and Outperform ratings on Expedia and Priceline. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, HomeAway fell 2.5% to $38.54, Expedia slid 0.9% to $71.65, and priceline.com lost about 1% to trade near $1,214.

14:16 EDTEXPEEarnings Preview: Analysts expects strong Q2 results for Expedia
Expedia (EXPE) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, July 31 with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Expedia is an Internet-based travel website that offers airplane, hotel and car reservations, and other vacation and business travel services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 76c on revenue of $1.44B. The consensus range is 57c-95c for EPS and $1.34B-$1.52B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Expedia reported first quarter adjusted EPS of 16c against estimates of 15c on revenue of $1.2B against estimates of $1.14B. Reports Q1 room nights grew 24% and Q1 domestic room night growth of 20%. It also reported Q1 gross bookings increased 29%, primarily driven by air ticket and room night growth. Domestic gross bookings increased 35% and international gross bookings increased 21%. STREET RESEARCH AND NEWS: In the past quarter, the company agreed to acquire Wotif Group and Auto Escape Group, while also signing strategic agreements with Sabre and Sixt. Oppenheimer said Expedia's acquisition of Wotif is positive and should allow the company to expand in the Asia Pacific region. Piper Jaffray said travel industry data indicates material improvement in the U.S. and points towards a strong Q2. Cantor agreed, expecting Expedia to beat expectations due to relative strength in U.S. paid search, robust growth at Hotels.com, and improving European room rates. FBR Capitals says channel checks on Expedia indicate positive upside in Q2, with bookings growth of 30%-35%. PRICE ACTION: Expedia shares have gained around 6.9% since the first day of trading following the company's Q1 report. In Thursday midday trading ahead of its Q2 report, Expedia shares are trading down almost 3%.

08:18 EDTPCLNZillow, Trulia merger story viewed as credible at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank views Bloomberg's report of merger talks between Zillow (Z) and Trulia (TRLA) as credible, saying the deal would make a lot of sense. The firm says Trulia shares would be worth around $63 in a takeover when using Priceline's (PCLN) acquisition of OpenTable as a comparison. Even at that price, the firm sees nearly 20% upside for Zillow's enterprise value should an acquisition occur. Deutsche notes that neither company has denied yesterday's report, nor has either company announced an earnings date. It cautions, though, that the potential merger could easily fall apart as well. It has a Buy rating on Trulia and Hold rating on Zillow.
