Nomura Securities maintains a 'Neutral' on TripAdvisor (Nasdaq: TRIP) price target raised from $32 to $34.

Analyst, Brian Nowak, said, "TripAdvisor reported strong 1Q:12 adjusted EBITDA of $84mn, 4% (or $3mn) above our estimate of $81mn and 7% above the Street’s of $79mn. Higher cost-per-click advertising (up +21% vs. our +9%) drove the beat. Flowing through the beat and our new higher CPC estimates, we now see 2012 adjusted EBITDA of $349mn (8% yoy growth), up from our old estimate of $327mn. We raise our px tgt to $34 on higher estimates, but the same multiple of 11x 2013 EBITDA. Trading at a 70% premium to the median EV/EBITDA multiple of its vertical-specific peer group, we are cautious of the company’s current valuation."
