Orbitz (NYSE: OWW) is an online travel company providing bookings for hotels, airline tickets, rental cars, and related services. The company competes with much larger competitors Priceline (NASDAQ: PCLN) and Expedia (NASDAQ: EXPE). The TTM revenues for the three companies are shown below.

Orbitz is nearly a factor of 5 smaller in terms of revenue than Expedia. This small size could be a benefit, as there is plenty of market share for Orbitz to grab from competitors.

Orbitz recently reported disappointing Q2 results, sending the stock plummeting.
