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).
