2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Guru Investment Theses on Priceline Group Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Priceline.com - Nov 06, 2013

priceline.com, Inc. (PCLN) is the leading online travel agency, operating several e- commerce websites, including booking.com, priceline.com, rentalcars.com, and agoda.com. We believe the company continues to have a large opportunity to benefit from the ongoing shift of travel-related booking transactions onto the Internet. We believe the company also has a significant runway to expand its business in the fast-growing Asian travel market. Its shares advanced after reporting good quarterly results and encouraging forward earnings guidance. While the scope of priceline's marketing expenditures incr eased, these were more than of fset by revenue growth.

From Ron Baron's Baron Funds third quarter 2013 report.

Baron Funds Comments on Priceline.com Inc. - Aug 02, 2013

priceline.com, Inc. (PCLN) is the leading online travel agency, operating websites across the world, including booking.com, priceline.com and agoda.com.The company's shares rose after reporting good results that highlighted its many opportunities to expand in fast-growing overseas markets, where the offline-to-online shift in hotel bookings continued. In addition, investors became less concerned that competition with other players in the online travel sector would lead to higher marketing costs and reduced profit margins. Finally, the company has had early success growing its booking.com business outside of its existing core European markets.

From the Baron Funds’ second quarter 2013 commentary.

Baron Funds Comments on Priceline.com Inc. - Dec 06, 2012

priceline.com, Inc. (PCLN) is a leading online travel agency that operates several online sites, including booking.com, priceline.com, rentalcars.com and agoda.com. Its shares fell after it reported a weak global outlook for its upcoming quarter, especially in Europe, which accounts for a majority of its cash flow. Despite the near-term macroeconomic headwinds, we remain positive on the company's longer-term outlook. Priceline's penetration of the European market for hotel rooms is still below 15%, representing, we believe, significant runway for the company to grow in that market. Further, the company's penetration in the fast-growing Asian travel market is also quite low, leaving additional room for growth.

From Baron Funds’ third quarter commentary.
