Expedia fundamental analysis and Michael Burry’s positioning

The ascent of Expedia’s shares is attributed to a bullish announcement from the company: a colossal $5 billion stock buyback plan coupled with the report of record revenues. 

This tailwind comes just in time as Expedia has recently been spotlighted as a new addition to Burry’s holdings in his Q2 filings revealed to the public.

Interestingly, this company’s performance and fundamental analysis are a strong indicator of the resilience of the travel industry, even in the face of relentless inflation and economic uncertainty.

In its latest report, Expedia Group Inc. witnessed a revenue upswing of 9% to $3.93 billion. Gross bookings were not far behind, ascending 7% to reach $25.7 billion. As for EBITDA, it showed robust growth of 1.1% year-over-year, translating into a 31% expansion.

Since Michael Burry’s positioning on August 14th, EXPE stocks have impressively climbed more than 5%, reflecting investors’ renewed confidence in the travel industry and in Burry’s strategic investment choices.

Expedia’s performance is a beacon for the travel sector, projecting a relentless march forward despite the cost-of-living crunch. In the coming days, all eyes will be on one of the most famous traders in the world’s next move and whether he will continue to bank on the travel industry’s robust momentum.
