The problem was the company’s outlook for the second quarter: earnings between $11.60 and $12.50 per share, while analysts had projected $14.98 per share. For the first quarter, Priceline Group Inc (NASDAQ:PCLN) reported revenues of $2.15 billion and a profit of $10.54 per share, topping Wall Street’s estimates of $9.66 per share on $2.12 billion in revenues.
