(BKNG) is set to report Q3 results tonight after the close with a conference call to follow at 4:30pm ET. 

Current Capital IQ consensus stands at EPS of $38.13 on Revenue of $4.81 bln. 

An increase in competition and FX headwinds led to a slow down in growth in Q2 as revenues decelerated to +16% from +21% in Q1.

There remains a potential for a more cautious outlook on Q4, at least in relation to the current analyst expectations.
