Focused approaches and strong financials mark the industry's top players

The travel industry is highly susceptible to economic conditions. When the economy is struggling, fewer people are willing or able to go on big-ticket excursions, and the opposite holds true for economies in the midst of bull markets.

It is undeniable that the Covid-19 pandemic has devastated the travel industry more so than the previous few recessions, which were purely financial in nature. People are even less willing to travel in a recession when doing so will help the spread of a potentially deadly virus that has no known cure or vaccine.

This has driven down the valuations of companies

Guru adds bank to portfolio in 4th quarter

Weitz Investment Management leader Wallace Weitz (Trades, Portfolio) disclosed one new position when he released his fourth-quarter 2019 portfolio earlier this week.

When picking stocks, the guru’s Omaha, Nebraska-based firm combines Benjamin Graham’s principles of price sensitivity and insistence on margin of safety with a conviction that qualitative factors that allow the company to control its future can be more important than statistical metrics like book value and earnings.

Based on these criteria, Weitz established a holding in First Hawaiian Inc. (FHB) during the quarter.

Guru stock highlight

Additionally, we purchased shares of online travel services provider Expedia (EXPE) at roughly 12 times our 2020 free cash flow estimates after the market violently (over)reacted to a soggy near-term outlook and lower-than-expected margins. We think these short-term issues are manageable and applaud Expedia’s willingness to take a long-term view.

Discussion of markets and holdings

The Hickory Fund returned +6.58% in the fourth quarter compared to +7.06% for the Russell Midcap Index (the Fund’s primary benchmark) and +8.54% for the Russell 2500. For the year, the Hickory Fund returned +36.06% compared to +30.54% for the Russell Midcap and +27.77% for the Russell 2500.

The solid fourth quarter results put the finishing touches on very strong 2019 performance, on both an absolute and relative basis.

Operational missteps and a dubious internal reorganization may be the true causes of Expedia's poor quarter

Expedia Group Inc. (EXPE) had a bad third quarter. Reporting earnings on Nov. 5, the company narrowly missed analysts’ estimates. The miss was especially embarrassing, since Expedia’s new management team had previously increased their earnings guidance.

According to Expedia, the miss was due to search engine optimization headwinds. However, a look beneath the surface reveals that this clame may not account for everything.

SEO headwinds get the blame

Expedia’s management team tried to place the blame for the poor quarter entirely on the shoulders of SEO. CEO Mark Okerstrom was unequivocal on this point during the company’s

When strong growth does not impress investors

Expedia (EXPE) recently reported its third-quarter earnings. At a time when stock market indexes have hit their all-time highs, the Bellevue Washington-based online travel company suffered its worst stock price drop in history as it failed to meet earnings expectations.

As a result of increased competition from the world’s largest search engine, Alphabet's Google (GOOGL), other similarly established online travel peers did not escape the market’s dissent as share prices of Booking (BKNG) and Trip Advisors (TRIP) also fell. Expedia identifies the need for higher costs in the short term, but still expects itself to return to
