Shares of TripAdvisor (NASDAQ: TRIP) were sliding today after the travel recommendation site got swept up in the broader sell-off over coronavirus fears. Not surprisingly, travel stocks are generally one of the first sectors to get hammered by concerns over a Health epidemic. Today we're seeing just that: Hotel, airline, cruise, and online travel stocks are all tumbling in response to news that the outbreak is expanding beyond China.
TripAdvisor shares were down 4.5% as of 12:21 p.m. EST after falling as much as 5.9%.
