11:42 EDTCCL, RCL, NCLHCarnival sinks after narrowing full-year profit forecast
Shares of cruise line operator Carnival (CCL) are sinking after the company reported better than expected adjusted earnings but issued guidance that fell below analysts' consensus forecast. WHAT'S NEW: Carnival reported first quarter adjusted earnings per share of 0c, compared to analysts' consensus expectation for an 8c per share loss. The company's first quarter revenue of $3.59B edged out analysts' $3.56B expectation. The cruise company expects second quarter adjusted earnings to be between a 2c loss per share and a 2c gain, compared to analysts' consensus of 7c per share profit. For FY14, the company now sees earnings per share in the range of $1.50-$1.70, versus analysts' estimate of $1.73. In December of last year, Carnival had pointed toward FY14 EPS of $1.40-$1.80. Carnival said it continues to expect net cruise costs excluding fuel per ALBD for FY14 to be slightly higher than the prior year on a constant dollar basis. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the company's first quarter earnings conference call, Carnival said it feels it will "turn a corner" in the second half of the year and that its brand perception has nearly recovered. The company believes that cautiously optimistic pricing will continue to improve and that it is encouraged by its progress, but acknowledged the company still has a lot of work to do. The company projects third quarter revenue yields to be positive and sees lower fourth quarter costs. PRICE ACTION: During late-morning trading, shares of Carnival fell $2.17 or 5.42% to $37.83. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the cruise industry include Royal Caribbean (RCL) and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH).

05:21 EDTCCLCarnival, CSSC sign MOU
Carnival announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding, or MOU, with the China State Shipbuilding Corporation, or CSSC, to explore the possibility of a joint venture aimed at accelerating the development and growth of the Chinese cruise industry, expected to be one of the largest cruise markets in the world with 4.5M passengers by 2020, according to the Chinese Ministry of Transport, or MOT. Becoming official at a signing ceremony today at the Ninth China Cruise Shipping and International Cruise Expo in Tianjin, the MOU outlines the framework for exploration of a partnership between Carnival Corporation and the CSSC that includes the possibility of forming a shipbuilding joint venture that could become a three-way arrangement involving Fincantieri of Italy, the world's largest cruise ship building company, in support of the Chinese government's plans to grow the cruising industry in China and meet escalating demand for cruises from Chinese travelers. As part of the possible shipbuilding joint venture, Carnival Corporation would work closely with CSSC and Fincantieri to help define the first-ever, world-class cruise ship built in China. Carnival Corporation, the world's leading cruise operator, has been involved in building modern cruise ships that exceed guest expectations more than any entity in the world. Under the joint venture concept, Carnival Corporation would provide its ship design and shipbuilding expertise to create the vision, definition and overall specifications for the China-built cruise ship.
