What: Shares of TripAdvisor (NASDAQ: TRIP ) fell 10% in early trading, after the company released earnings.
So what: The fourth quarter wasn't bad, with revenue up 23%, to $169.4 million, and earnings per share up 44%, to $0.23, both ahead of estimates. The problem is that management expects marketing costs to push higher in 2013, putting pressure on profits.
Now what: The company did show strong growth, so it isn't a reason for wholesale panic today. The challenge is that the stock is priced for perfection at 24 times forward earnings estimates. I'm not yet a buyer today, but if you are long the stock, I wouldn't jump ship just yet.
