Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates EXPEDIA INC as a Buy with a ratings score of A. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
We rate EXPEDIA INC (EXPE) a BUY. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.
