Elements to consider before selling or buying Airbnb shares

Analysis N°1

Firstly, it will be important to monitor regulatory developments in favour or against AirBnB accommodation. These factors can either slow down or boost AirBnB's rentals and therefore its activity. This concerns in particular the taxes to be paid by individuals who rent out their accommodation or the limits on rentals during the year.

Analysis N°2

It will also be necessary to closely monitor the development of new functionalities and new technologies by AirBnB in order to facilitate the rental of the accommodation offered or the administrative management for the renters. This was notably the case with the launch of AirBnB plus, which is a form of hotel platform for those who are resistant to the classic AirBnB system.

Analysis N°3

The same applies to the diversification of the group's activities, which is not only focused on accommodation and has already started to invest in a restaurant platform or even tours through AirBnB experiences.

Analysis N°4

Legal action by local authorities may also influence AirBnB's activities in certain countries.

Analysis N°5

It is also important to keep an eye on the competition that the company is facing, particularly with regard to the large groups that used to specialise in the classic hotel sector and that are trying to establish themselves in this segment in view of its significant growth in recent years.

Analysis N°6

Finally, you should also follow the financial and economic publications of the AirBnB group, including its annual and quarterly results, which you should preferably compare with analysts' expectations and the objectives set by the company.
