••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on TripAdvisor Inc

Giverny Capital's Podium of Errors - Tripadvisor - Mar 25, 2014

As you can imagine, I spend a great deal of the year on the road visiting companies, attending conferences and meeting partners. Having had all sorts of hotel experiences over the course of the past decades, I really like to be able to choose hotels which can make my travels more enjoyable. I discovered the website Tripadvisor a few years ago and became a loyal fan. To paraphrase an American Express advertising, I never leave home without vetting out my destination on Tripadvisor ahead of time. The company also owns another very useful site called webseatguru.com which helps you choose the best seat on any commercial flight.



Tripadvisor went public at the end of 2011 and I was very impressed with the company’s financial performance after reading the prospectus. Unfortunately, the stock rapidly climbed to $45 and was trading at 30 times its earnings. Then, in the fall of 2012, the stock tumbled by 33% to $30 and I seriously thought about buying it. The P/E seemed reasonable (20x) for a company with a dominant brand that was growing at 20% a year. Yet, as often the case, I decided to wait for an even better price. And the stock surged by 180% in the following year and is now trading at $84. It’s too bad that I didn’t convert my admiration into profits as it would have paid for a few five star hotels…for both you and me.

Beyond travel-related content, its websites also include links to the websites of its customers, including travel advertisers, allowing travelers to directly book their travel arrangements. In addition to the flagship TripAdvisor-branded websites, it has also acquired and launched numerous other travel brands, connected by the common characteristic of providing travelers with valuable planning resources across the travel sector. These brands have expanded its reach, product breadth and appeal to domestic and international advertisers. The Company operates in the online advertising sector of the global travel industry.

The Company also competes with a wide range of other companies, including, among others, Airbnb, Inc., Ctrip.com International, Ltd., HolidayCheck AG, HomeAway.com, Inc., and Yelp, Inc. The Company is subject to a number of United States federal and state and foreign laws and regulations that affect companies conducting business on the Internet, many of which are still evolving and being tested in courts, and could be interpreted in ways that could harm its business.
