UPDATE - Barclays downgraded Expedia (NASDAQ: EXPE) to Underweight, maintains price target of $34.00.

Analyst, Anthony DiClemente, said, "On the heels of a 31% rise in EXPE since 1Q12 earnings (vs SPX -0.1%), we are downgrading to 3-Underweight. While we came out of 1Q12 incrementally positive and maintain our $34 price target, we would avoid EXPE at present based on: 1) Pricing - overly optimistic on new platform; 2) Buybacks - 20M share program looks too aggressive considering cash on hand; and 3) Valuation - trading at 8x 2012 guided EBITDA with FX headwinds coming in Q2."
