TripAdvisor's third-quarter results continued a troubling trend for the online-travel specialist. Total revenue grew 17%, to $415 million, with the slower pace of growth disappointing investors, who had generally expected a 21% rise. On the bottom line, adjusted net income rose almost 10%, to $78 million, but the resulting adjusted earnings of $0.53 per share were $0.02 less than the consensus forecast among those following the stock. As we've seen several times in recent quarters, the strong dollar had an adverse impact on TripAdvisor's results. Revenue took about an eight-percentage point hit, and adjusted operating earnings would have been 17% higher if measured on a constant-currency basis. Still, TripAdvisor delivered growth in all three of its major revenue sources. Subscription and transaction-based revenue jumped 56% from the year-ago quarter, now bringing in more than a fourth of total revenue for the company. Growth in the key click-based advertising area rose just 6%, while display ads brought in 20% more revenue this quarter than in 2014's third quarter.
