Shares of Expedia and TripAdvisor both reached new year-to-date lows during mid-day trade Thursday, tumbling as much as 25%.

The stock plunge comes after both the travel service stocks reported third-quarter earnings misses after the bell Wednesday.

Expedia reported earnings of $3.38 per share excluding certain items on revenue of $3.56 billion, falling short of the $3.80 in earnings per share and revenue of $3.58 billion that analysts expected, according to Refinitiv. Expedia’s gross bookings also came in just shy of estimates, coming at $26.93 billion versus the $27.06 billion expected.

TripAdvisor, meanwhile, posted earnings of 58 cents per share on revenue of $428 million, while analysts expected an earnings per share of 69 cents and revenue of $459 million, according to Refinitiv consensus estimates.

Expedia’s shares are down more than 10% year-to-date, while TripAdvisor’s shares are down about 42% year-to-date.
