Airbnb (NASDAQ: ABNB) investors have had a very good year so far. The home and room rental specialist's stock price is up over 67% in 2023, far outpacing the 34% rally in the Nasdaq Composite. Those excellent returns are partly due to persistently high demand in the travel industry today, which has lifted sales for Airbnb as well as industry peers like Booking Holdings.

But one of management's biggest priorities is to boost the supply of homes available, and progress there was just as encouraging. Active listings in the second quarter rose 19% year over year and were higher in each of the company's regions. Airbnb added more new listings in Q2 than in any previous quarter, in fact.
