The Real Truth: Expedia vs. Priceline
April 27, 2012 (AAPLTrader)
When it comes to technical trading, high beta and using momentum, I’m a big fan of Priceline Inc. (NASDAQ: PCLN).
However when it comes to dividend and low trading price, Expedia Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPE) is the one to go with.
To see which company may see the most growth in 2012,
let’s look at the numbers…
Here’s the breakdown:
Yield = 0.89% Yield = 0.00%
Dividend = .09 Dividend = 0
120,846,000 Shares VS. 49,792,000 Shares
$40 per share $762 per share
Volume = 24,425,587 Volume = 1,843,064
Beta = .8766 Beta = 1.206
Expedia Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPE) closed today at $40.31 up 23.54% from yesterday after it announced earnings of $.26, beating the streets estimate of $.05.
PCLN closed today at $762.13 up 3.94% from yesterday and will have their Q1 earnings on May 9, 2012 at 4:30 p.m. ET. The streets estimate PCLN earnings to be at $3.94.
Since February 13, 2012, Priceline broke out of a channel with incredible momentum to the upside. I believe it may go all the way back up to $974, where it was previously in late April 1999, and maybe even go beyond $1,000. When looking at the momentum and how the range is increasing every time PCLN makes another move up has me very bullish.
