Despite the impressive performance of Corporate Travel Management (ASX: CTD) compared to other travel stocks like (ASX: FLT) and (ASX: WEB), investors who bought CTD stock as an investment 52 weeks ago would be down by 9%. This decline is partly due to investors taking profits as CTD recovered faster than its peers, but it’s also because of rising interest rates and the possibility of a recession leading to reduced discretionary spending and travel in 2022, totalling a fall of 46% from its all times high and the bottom of the cycle. Although recession remains a concern in 2024, the recent drop in CTD’s stock price, shows that the stock is currently sitting under the SMA250 and the SMA40.
