Why Bet on Travelzoo Stock?
TZOO earns money through advertising fees. Also, it earns transaction-based revenues through the sale of vouchers. Moreover, it generates subscription revenues from its members-only service, Jack’s Flight Club, which offers cheap airfares. Thus, the normalization of travel demand is expected to boost its revenues.
The company is optimistic and expects to deliver substantially higher revenue and profitability in Q4.
Barrington analyst James Goss, who is bullish on TZOO stock, said that recovery in travel demand is important for the company but “a particularly strong demand environment can make it more challenging to secure attractive travel deals with suppliers and travel operators less inclined to offer attractive deals.”
Thus a return to normalcy in demand and consumer spending would result in a more favorable situation for the company. Goss expects TZOO to benefit from new initiatives.
Is TZOO Stock a Buy?
TZOO stock has received two Buy recommendations for a Moderate Buy consensus rating on TipRanks. Moreover, these analysts’ average price target of $9.50 implies 55.2%.
TZOO stock has a positive signal from bloggers. Moreover, it has an Outperform Smart Score of eight on TipRanks.
