Evercore Partners analyst Ken Sena reiterated an Overweight rating on (NASDAQ: PCLN) and raised his price target from $975 to $1,100, following strong Q2 results.

The firm raised 3Q adjusted EBITDA estimate by 9% to $1.08 billion, 6% above the high-end of the company's guidance range which they see as achievable given that the company came in 7% and 11% above in 2Q and 1Q, respectively.

" ranks first globally in diversity and quantity of travel supply and, despite current marketing deleverage, still enjoys the highest marketing efficiency in the industry," Sena comments. "Moreover, we view valuation as justifiable on the basis of growth, even given its recent performance. Our $1100 target price considers DCF and multiple comparison and implies that Priceline can trade at 17x Adj. EBITDA and 23x Adj. EPS on our 2014 estimates, consistent with our long-term growth rates."
