Joel Greenblatt Watch

  • 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 Ctrip.com (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.

  • One of Icahn's Favorite Stocks Seems to be Overvalued

    One well-known activist investor, Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio), further increased his position in Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK) through Icahn Capital LP by 10% to $1.03 billion in the company's latest filing, with 73.05 million shares. Chesapeake is Icahn's eighth-largest holding in its $32.05 billion portfolio, and the stake represents 3.2% of Icahn´s portfolio, so we can conclude that the stock´s performance will affect its performance.


    Icahn remains bullish on the company as evidenced by his increased position in the company's shares, so let´s try to find the intrinsic value of the stock based on an absolute valuation model and see if we can have an upside potential in this stock.
