Words have power -- as investors discovered to their dismay last week. News of the new omicron variant of COVID-19 shocked the stock market, sending shares of cruise line stocks Royal Caribbean (NYSE: RCL), Carnival (NYSE: CCL) (NYSE: CUK), and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NYSE: NCLH) tumbling 10% and more in Friday trading.
Benchmarks recorded the worst Black Friday performance in decades, as reports of a new COVID variant spooked investors raising concerns on economic recovery.
Investors' holiday cheer received a rude interruption on Thanksgiving Day 2021: In South Africa, a new coronavirus variant is rising -- and it's terrifying investors with fears of a prolonged cruise industry recession. Shares of Carnival Corporation (NYSE: CCL) (NYSE: CUK), Royal Caribbean (NYSE: RCL), and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NYSE: NCLH) sank in quick succession as of 10:10 a.m. ET today, falling 10%, 10.2%, and 10.3%, respectively.
