The last week or so has brought the conclusion of the Travel sector's first-quarter earnings season near.

Of the six or seven companies which operate within the space, only one has not yet reported, Shanghai-based International, Ltd. (ADR) CTRP. With most of the group now out of the way, it seems the first part of 2016 was a relatively tough one for this small group.

Since the likes of Expedia Inc EXPE and Travelzoo Inc. TZOO started reporting results on April 28, stocks in the sector are, on average, underperforming the broader stock market, down nearly 2.5 percent versus a 2 percent decline in the S&P 500.

Below is a quick roundup of the performance so far in the Travel sector.

  • Priceline Group Inc NASDAQPCLN - shares down 8 percent since reporting. Posted first-quarter EPS $10.54 vs a $9.66 analyst consensus estimate on sales of $2.15 billion vs $2.12 billion estimate. Expecting second-quarter adjusted EPS $11.60-$12.50 vs $14.98 estimate on sales growth of 7-14 percent.
  • Expedia - stock up 4 percent. Issued quarterly non-GAAP EPS $0.09 vs $(0.06) estimate on sales of $1.9 billion vs $1.84 billion estimate.
  • Travelzoo - down 3.5 percent. Reported quarterly EPS $0.14 vs. $0.09 estimate on sales $34.8 million vs. $37 million estimate.

One of the remaining Travel players left to report, Ctrip, is expected to publish quarterly results on Wednesday, May 11 after the close. Wall Street analysts are looking for EPS of $(3.75) on sales of about $4.16 billion.
