Aug 02, 2022 (Vehement Media via COMTEX) -- Have you been looking for an investment that is sure to pay off? If so, then Trip Advisor might be the perfect option for you! Despite the fact that its stock has dipped in recent years, there are a number of reasons why it is poised to make a comeback. TGcapital broker discusses what you need to know about Trip Advisor's stock and why now may be the best time to invest in it.
How are Stocks of Trip Advisor rising?
Trip Advisor's /zigman2/quotes/206118480/composite TRIP +0.67% share price has tumbled (-35%) in 2018. The epidemic devastated the travel industry as a whole. However, with the reopening, much-unbridled demand has resurfaced, with many airlines like American Airlines /zigman2/quotes/209207041/composite AAL +2.24% seeing travel return to pre-COVID levels. Despite that, the fantastic travel site's stock went as high as $64.95 on March 15, 202, and has been declining ever since. Peers like Expedia /zigman2/quotes/202291990/composite EXPE +2.81% and Booking Holdings /zigman2/quotes/203576210/composite BKNG +1.63% are bottoming out, suggesting Trip Advisor shares will rebound. Airbnb /zigman2/quotes/222990650/composite ABNB +0.08% stock has also attempted to put in a bottom. By 2022, travel and tourism are expected to reach $2 trillion, surpassing pre-pandemic levels by 6%. Beijing's COVID regulations were subsequently loosened, allowing more Chinese tourists to visit the United States.
Unfortunately, the economy's terrible shape is causing investors to be concerned about inflation, fuel costs, and interest rates. When consumers curb their discretionary spending in a recession, sales of the recovery may be impacted. In July 2022, the Company installed a new CEO as it enters the commercial season of the travel season in the third quarter. Investors looking to gain exposure in the online travel and leisure industry might keep an eye on Trip Advisor's shares for opportunity pullbacks.
