E-Commerce Stock Watch: Preview Travel Finally Bounces Back

Leading online travel agent Preview Travel (Nasdaq: PTVL) has been mentioned favorably by various analysts and publications in recent weeks, including Business Week and The Motley Fool. However, after a nice run-up, the stock fell in eight consecutive trading sessions leading up to Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the stock charged back with a bang, gaining 1-7/16 to 23-15/16 after the company launched a travel protection program to offer its customers insurance and emergency assistance services. It will be interesting to see if Preview Travel can build on the momentum. Preview Travel is a stock that many feel is cheap and a possible takeover target, but it remains to be seen whether the stock soars to new heights or whether it will simply just stay in a holding pattern. Shares of Preview Travel were up 5/16 to 24-1/4 in early trading today.

What do you think about Hillary Clinton's use of private email servers during her term as Secretary of State?
She broke the law and should go to jail.
She violated guidelines -- the issue is overblown.
She placed important state department information at risk.
Her servers might have been more secure than the government's.
I really don't care one way or the other.
