Top Ranked Articles about Carnival Corp

Ebola Could Affect Availability of Important Ingredient in Chocolate
The Ebola crisis seems to affect everything it touches – or could have touched. Stocks in airlines, which carried the original patient to the United States and transported one of that patient’s nurses from Cleveland to Dallas earlier this week, largely went down; stocks related to the production of material used in the medical handling of specimens from Ebola patients went up.

Carnival: A giant in the cruising industry
As WTI oil price continues to decline to the current $83, the signal of Saudis not to cut output further gives support for the downward momentum. However, the decrease in oil price can be a boom for heavy oil consumption companies, like Carnival (CCL). The immediate effect of oil price might not be apparent as the hedges in CCL will negate some benefits from the near-term oil prices. Nevertheless, if oil price continues to decline in the future, it can really help to lower the operating costs for CCL and eventually benefit the profit margins. Some might argue that the Ebola issue will negatively affect the travel sector. That's true. Nevertheless, for long-term investors, we should take advantage of short-term issues and accumulate stocks with good prospects and sound fundamental support. Looking forward, when CCL can turnaround the negative sentiments around recent accidents and have positive growths in net yields, CCL should be re-evaluated for 30% upside potential. Read more...
