I feel bad for the shorts

Classic dot com stupidity. What we have here is a frantic attempt to prop up a stock's value by "expanding" overseas. Travelzoo was an early and lucky internet venture that actually provided a useful newsletter. Now they're just a declining marketing… More

Advertises and promotes discounts being offered by hotels, restaurants, travel destinations, etc. to their 29 million members. They do not book reservations themselves. They supply promo codes to be used by their members when they book directly. Was listed as one of the top thirteen best Web sites for travel-related information and travel deals in 2006 by Forbes.com. Their revenue has been steadily falling for at least four years. In the last several years, used about 1/2 their cash hoard to buy back 10% of outstanding shares, thereby reducing the book value to less than $1 per share. Return on equity: 50.7% (2015), 36.7% (2016), negative (2017 - YTD). Currently trying to expand their small base in the Asian markets to counterbalance the revenue decline in North America and Europe.

Investors have thrown the baby out with the bathwater following the Q3 earnings report. Much of the revenue from the company's new hotel booking platform is pushed forward 40-50 days (into Q4) vs. its old vouchers program that frustrated consumers but allowed the company to recognize revenue immediately upon booking vs. when the guest stays. Insiders own 58%, Institutional investors own another 33% and that leaves only 1.4 million shares in the free trading float. Over 515,000 of those shares are already sold short. Amazon's has been quietly building up to launch a business similar to TZOOs and I think they will soon make a bid to acquire TZOO, unless Alibaba or Groupon beats them to it.

Travelzoo is dirt cheap on a price per subscriber, earnings or sum of the parts basis. One of those companies will acquire them within the next 12 months.
