Morgan Stanley analysts reaffirmed their Overweight rating and a $64 price target for Trip.com Group (NASDAQ:TCOM), noting that the valuation is more appealing in the short term following the recent drop.

After the Q1/24 results, the company's stock fell more than 10%, mirroring the decline following Q4/23 results. Upcoming events like the Dragon Boat Festival (June 8-10) and the summer holiday season are expected to be catalysts. Domestic business year-over-year growth slowed in Q2/24 due to weaker hotel pricing and a one-time adjustment in air revenue/ticketing in late Q3/23. These factors are expected to normalize by Q4/24, potentially leading to accelerated growth in Q4 and bolstering market confidence in sustained domestic growth for 2025.

Outbound travel is anticipated to include more long-haul trips in Q3/24, which should boost prices for air travel and hotels during the summer. The current valuation is attractive at 15x 2024 estimated P/E and 12x 2025 estimated P/E, with projected profit growth of 28% in 2024 and 21% in 2025, corresponding to PEG ratios of 0.5x and 0.6x.
