Billionaire Stephen Mandel‘s Lone Pine Capital filed a Form 13G with the SEC yesterday in which it reported acquiring 7.14 million common shares of Expedia Inc. (NASDAQ:EXPE), which account for 5.21% of the company’s float. The acquisition represents a new addition to Lone Pine Capital’s portfolio and is valued at about $840 million, which would rank it as Lone Pine’s ninth-most valuable position based on the value of its public equity holdings on June 30.

Expedia Inc. (NASDAQ:EXPE) is one of the world’s largest online travel companies. Since the beginning of the year, the company’s stock has lost 5.29%. In its financial results for the second quarter of 2016, Expedia reported adjusted EPS of $0.83 and revenue of $2.2 billion, compared to EPS of $0.89 and revenue of $1.66 billion for the corresponding quarter in 2015.
