Is Carnival Cruise (CCL) Stock A Buy At $14? Bankruptcy Coming!?


Is Carnival Cruise (CCL) Stock A Buy At $14? Bankruptcy Coming!? – Review

Carnival Cruise Line stock has been a nasty ride for many investors. Over the last few weeks, it has shown many false bottoms where it appeared to be cheap but kept on falling. Now, we are seeing this stock trading around $14 per share. A lot of people are wondering if this is the bottom, and is this a buying opportunity. I will be sharing my opinion on CCL stock. I will also let you know if I plan on buying this stock in the future.

    Once the ports open back up, big upside potential. Plus, if the $4,000 tax credit passes or more stimulus money, people will move on just like we did in 2003 with H1N1, SARS outbreak in Canada, ZIKA virus.

    My husband and I love cruising, my parents loved it too. When my father bought his CCL stock, In those days, if you bought 100 shares, it gave them instant “ elite” status onboard with lots of perks. Now 100 shares gets you a generous amount of onboard credit instead, on every cruise- about $250 per trip. So, when CCL dropped to $8, we decided to buy 100 shares. We had two cruises cancelled due to COVID-19, but we opted for 150% of their value in future cruise credit, which we hear many cruisers did, so I think people will continue to cruise. If we take 4 cruises, the onboard credit has paid for our stock and the stock was over $24 today! We’re keeping it for the long term, hopefully.

    50% less people on a cruise ship at best might be toleratable now and for rest of time.To buy stocks you better really think it over.

    I definitely believe CCL will make it through this pandemic fine… it definitely hurts that it was one of my largest positions going into it but glad that the rest of my portfolios gains covered the losses

    Why do you speak in this shouting manner? How about just have a normal conversation.

    Carnival is noteable for encouraging 1,500 confirmed COVID-19 passengers to go aboard ships between February and March and having tested postive thereafter for the virus with over 30 deaths

    While that number comes from about 7 of the company’s ships, it is still a significant number that the CDC feels could have been avoided. According to CDC epidemiologist and cruise ship task force leader Cindy Friendman, Carnival had ample warning to cancel sailing and prevent this issue

    CCL stock looks like it’s on a discount. It’s the people who decide with their wallet what they want to do and it’s not likely they’ll return to the open waters for a non-essential function like going on a Carnival cruise ship hereinafter.

    Reality Works Against CCL Stock

    For those that think this industry offers untapped recovery potential, I would reconsider the thesis. Unlike other disasters that we’ve faced in this country, this is a crisis that has impacted in some significant way every American. Indeed, much of the world has suffered acutely from the pandemic.

    Therefore, the quick recovery narrative that you would find associated with, for instance, tragic accidents isn't the same here. That airplanes crash or that boats sink is an accepted risk that consumers take, particularly because these incidents are rare.

    Without a vaccine, Carnival will go bankrupt. A pandemic always has multiple waves, the second one is usually the worst. CCL will drop to $8.

    The tourism industry is the main factor you miss. You never mentioned many cities rely on cruise ships for their revenue. Like Kechikan in Alasak and thousands more industries are linked to cruise business. Uber, airlines, transportation, cities, and many more places benefit from cruise ships. So if there is no cruise business that will impact all those branches.

    stay afloat? do you mean literally???? did you also mean a no sale order? instead of buying a lottery ticket you can buy 1 share of this company and have more chances of winning

    They would make great jail's

    Carnival Cruises being on a fast track to sickness or death

    MESSAGE; Those who don't remember past bad happenings customarily condemned to relive them. Re: Carnival Cruises planned cruise bookings – CARNIVAL CRUISE LINE SUED BY PASSENGERS FOR ‘CONCEALING’ CORONAVIRUS INFECTIONS ON BOARD – Prior to the cruise, customers had been told that there was no cause for concern, and that if they cancelled they would not be entitled to a refund.

    CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE: When a party acts in such a way that it can be considered an extreme departure from the manner in which a “reasonable” person would have acted in the same or similar situation. In general, an act that rises to the level of criminal negligence showing an indifference or disregard for human life, or for the safety of other individuals. CONCLUSION: If we’ve learned nothing else from the coronavirus catastrophe, it’s that cruise ships are a breeding ground for nasty, potentially lethal little germs and that the vessels are perfectly positioned to transport those germs around the world. Moreover, Carnival Cruise Lines has made plain it cares little for customers’ loyalty or for that matter their health and well being (to the matter of life and death itself). Furthermore, denying refunds for cancelled trips and instead offering credit for unscheduled restrictive non-sociable style cruises sometime in the future. Which is to say, a chance to be sickened, or dying at sea. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the current coronavirus is highly contagious and more deadly than past norovirus strains and no longer is there a question of safety assurances on any ship. The public’s awakening call to be aware of Carnival cruise ships being on a fast track to sickness or death. Obviously an enormous gamble as soon as you step aboard.
