Cruise-line stocks are rocky these days, but the one standout at sea could also be the one standout in your portfolio.
Three of the most beaten-down groups of stocks led today's big day higher for stocks, as investors react to positive news about a potential treatment for COVID-19.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI) saw the biggest gains on a percentage basis, but the S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC) also climbed more than 1%, and the Nasdaq Composite set a new record high. Carnival (NYSE: CCL) had good news for those following the beleaguered cruise ship industry. Elsewhere in travel, airline giant United Airlines Holdings (NASDAQ: UAL) also achieved an important milestone in its efforts to cut costs and reduce the rate at which it's burning through available capital.
In a business update today, Carnival Corporation (NYSE: CCL) offered both good news and bad news. Carnival said it expects "future capacity to be moderated by the phased reentry of its ships, the removal of capacity from its fleet and delays in new ship deliveries." Including a previously announced sale, the company said a total of 13 ships, or 9% of its current capacity, will be sold within 90 days.
A raft of good news couldn't keep cruise line stocks afloat amid a falling stock market on Thursday -- but Friday is dawning a bit brighter for cruise ship stocks. Royal Caribbean (NYSE: RCL) was up an even better 5.9%, while industry giant Carnival Corporation (NYSE: CCL) (NYSE: CUK) was up a whopping 8.8%. Carnival Corporation probably deserves the lion's share of the credit for today's rally.
It's been nearly a month since Carnival Corporation (NYSE: CCL) shocked the stock market by revealing it was burning through its cash reserves at a faster-than-expected $650 million a month. It's been nearly a month since the company laid down a marker and promised to cut that burn rate to $250 million monthly, the better to help it ride out the recession. In an 8-K filing with the SEC this morning, Carnival updated investors on the state of its business as it crosses the midyear mark.
(Bloomberg) -- Carnival Corp., which plans to begin cruising again next month from German ports, said Italy could be next as it looks to restart its business following the coronavirus shutdown.Chief Executive Officer Arnold Donald said the company’s ships will start with less than half their usual levels of passengers as they implement precautions for social distancing. The response to new cruises has been strong, he said, with 1,000 bookings coming in for the company’s German brand, Aida, immediately after it reopened. Many of the bookings came from first-time cruisers.“We expect demand to be more than adequate to fill ships in a staggered restart,” Donald said on a conference call with investors Friday. “There’s a lot of pent-up demand.”Carnival shares rose as much as 12% in New York trading Friday and were up 8.6% to $15.83 at 11:50 a.m. The stock has suffered along with the rest of the cruise business, falling 71% this year through Thursday.The industry halted sailing around the world in March as Covid-19 spread rapidly. Carnival and other lines had to hustle to return passengers and crew while raising money to blunt the financial impact of the shutdown.The company plans to shed 13 ships and is pushing back deliveries of new ones. Donald said it would be 2022 at the earliest before the company returns to its prior level of passenger capacity. Bookings for 2021 are coming in at prices that are a low- to mid-single-digit percentage below those of earlier periods.Burning CashThe Miami-based company reported a loss of $4.3 billion on sales of $740 million for the quarter that ended in May. The company’s cash burn, with none of its ships sailing, is $650 million a month.Carnival returned 260,000 passengers and 77,000 crew to land amid the crisis. About 3,000 crew members are still at sea.The company holds some $2.6 billion in customer deposits, most of them credits consumers can use for future bookings.Donald said Carnival had “less than our market share of incidents” of the virus on board but received a “disproportionate amount of media attention,” given its size as the industry leader.It’s mounting a public conference on the virus featuring scientists on July 28.The executive said its brands aren’t seeing the same negative perceptions among consumers as they did back in 2012, when Carnival ships experienced high-profile accidents including a fatal crash in Italy and an engine fire in the Gulf of Mexico. “None of the brands have gone to the low levels we experienced at that time,” Donald said.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
