Shares of Expedia Inc. (NASDAQ:EXPE) lost almost 20% in premarket trading on the back of the company reporting its financial results for the fourth quarter. The company posted earnings of 84 cents per share on $2.32 billion in revenue. The company fell short of earnings estimates by 31 cents and revenue expectations by $40 million. Total revenue grew by 11% year over year, however.
