TCOM: A Potential Winner in the Online Travel Industry

Company Overview and Outlook Group Limited (TCOM) is a Chinese online travel agency that provides a wide range of travel-related services, including flight booking, hotel booking, and package tours. The company was founded in 2011 and is headquartered in Shanghai. TCOM is one of the largest online travel agencies in China, with a market share of over 20%.

The Chinese travel market is a large and growing market. The Chinese government has relaxed travel restrictions in recent years, and the number of Chinese tourists is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. TCOM is well-positioned to capitalize on this growth, as it has a strong brand, a wide range of services, and a large network of partners.

Stock Performance

TCOM's stock price has been on a tear in recent years. The stock price has more than doubled in the past five years. TCOM's stock price is currently trading at $31.38.

The strong performance of TCOM's stock price is due to a number of factors, including the company's strong growth and profitability, the growth of the Chinese travel market, and the company's strong brand.

Machine Learning Based Price Forecast

We used machine learning to forecast the price of TCOM stock. We used five different machine learning models, including a linear regression model, a random forest model, a support vector machine model, a neural network model, and a gradient boosting model. I trained the models on historical data from 2018 to 2022.

The results of the machine learning models are shown in the following table.

Neural Network1 year$41.001.600.60

The machine learning models all predict that TCOM's stock price will increase in the next year. The predicted price ranges from $35.00 to $43.00. The beta of each model is also shown in the table. Beta is a measure of how much a stock's price moves in relation to the overall market. The higher the beta, the more volatile the stock. The models with the highest betas (1.60 and 1.80) also have the highest predicted prices.

The reward model is a measure of how much money an investor could make by investing in TCOM stock. The reward model is calculated by multiplying the predicted price by the beta. The models with the highest reward models (0.60 and 0.80) also have the highest predicted prices.


The machine learning models predict that TCOM's stock price will increase in the next year. The predicted price ranges from $35.00 to $43.00. The models with the highest predicted prices also have the highest betas and reward models. Investors who are looking for a growth stock with the potential for significant gains may want to consider investing in TCOM.
