  • Expedia Jumped After Beating Wall Street

    Expedia (NASDAQ:EXPE) shares jumped almost 13% to $121.44 in today´s trading day after the company´s Q2 results. The company reported stronger-than-expected revenue and earnings. Further, it received a price target increase. Revenue was up more than 15%, beating the consensus, and reported second-quarter earnings of $0.89, beating analysts' estimates of $0.84 per share. Expedia also announced it raised its September dividend to $0.24 per share, a 33% increase over its previous dividend.

    At the end of May, the stock also jumped in response to news that the firm was selling its majority stake in Chinese travel company eLong (NASDAQ:LONG) to (NASDAQ:CTRP). I think this was a strategic move, apart from reducing exposure to China, because the firm can focus on valuable ideas in the long haul instead of losing time and sources in that business.

  • A Look at SPY´s Value at Risk

    In this article, let´s take a look at The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY). An ETF is a special type of fund that invests in a portfolio of stocks or bonds. The aim is to mimic the performance of a specified index. As well as the shares, they are traded in the secondary market at any time (market hours) and investors can sell short. The advantages of this investment vehicle are that they provide an efficient method of diversification because investors gain exposure to an index or a particular sector. Second, investors know the composition of the fund at all times. Moreover, as they are a passive managed fund, they have good operating expense ratios.
