09:50 EDTRCL, CCLCarnival declines after 2013 outlook misses expectations
Cruise ship operator Carnival (CCL) is retreating after the company predicted that its earnings per share in 2013 would be lower than consensus expectations. Since September, booking trends for the first three quarters of next year are unchanged compared with this year, Carnival reported. The company, however, said it was selling tickets at lower prices. The deteriorating economic situation in Europe is hurting Carnival's business there, the company added. On a positive note, Carnival reported that its results for the fourth quarter of this year did beat analysts' consensus estimates. In early trading, Carnival sank $1.86, or 4.76%, to $37.18, while Carnival's competitor, Royal Caribbean (RCL) gave back $1.17, or 3.33%, to $33.97.

08:31 EDTRCLRoyal Caribbean fundamentals 'fully intact,' says Stifel
Stifel says that Royal Caribbean's fiscal 2016 guidance does not reflect any deterioration in its fundamentals. The firm says that the cruise sector should benefit from higher Caribbean pricing and "an emerging Asian growth story." Stifel thinks the decline in the stock was overdone. It cut its price target on the name to $99 from $116 but keeps a Buy rating.
07:48 EDTRCLRoyal Caribbean core trends intact, says SunTrust

The firm expects higher costs in Q1 to normalize starting in Q2 and for investor sentiment to recover. Nomura reiterates its Buy rating and lowered its price target on Royal Caribbean shares to $96 from $112 to account for multiple compression.

16:23 EDTRCLOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the entire session. The early weakness was attributed to oil prices, which were down early and never recovered during the day. The losses of more than 5% brings the loss over the past two days to more than 10%, pushing WTI crude back below $30 a barrel and squashing equities in the process. Any hope that oil prices would de-couple from stock prices will have to wait another day as the two continue to move in lockstep with each other. Even a solid earnings report from tech bellwether Alphabet (GOOG) could not help the market. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was quiet. In Europe, statistics agency Eurostat reported that unemployment across the eurozone decreased by 49,000 to a total of 16.75M in December dropping the unemployment rate to its lowest since September 2011 at 10.4%. In central bank news, the Reserve Bank of Australia and Reserve Bank of India both held their benchmark interest rates steady, as expected. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Alphabet (GOOGL) advanced 1.3% to $780.91 after its better than expected quarterly results were followed by analysts around Wall Street hiking their price targets for shares, including Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler, who raised his target on the parent of Google to $1,080 from $900... Exxon Mobil (XOM) reported better than expected revenue and profits in the fourth quarter, but its shares slid 2.2% to $74.61 amid the renewed weakness in oil prices. Shares of fellow oil major BP (BP) plunged 8.5% to $29.02 in New York trading after reporting a steep quarterly loss, largely due to $2.6B in charges related to impairments of Upstream assets as well as restructuring... Ford (F) shares fell 4.6% after the company reporting that its U.S. sales declined 3% last month versus a year ago. Peer General Motors (GM) slid 1.5% after reporting that its U.S. sales grew 0.5% in January... Dow Chemical (DOW) jumped 5.75% to $45.03 after posting better than expected earnings and revenue. Of note, Dow CEO Andrew Liveris said he plans to transition out of the company when it completes its planned merger with DuPont (DD). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Michael Kors (KORS) and Mattel (MAT), which rose nearly 24% and almost 14%, respectively, following their earnings reports. Also higher was Pacific Biosciences (PACB), which jumped 24% to $12.67 after Reuters said Roche (RHHBY) has recently approached the company to discuss a potential acquisition. Among the noteworthy losers following earnings were Integrated Device (IDTI), which fell 26.8%, ADT (ADT), which dropped 15.7%, and Royal Caribbean (RCL), which declined 15.2%. INDEXES: The Dow fell 295.64, or 1.8%, to 16,153.54, the Nasdaq lost 103.42, or 2.24%, to 4,516.95, and the S&P 500 declined 36.35, or 1.87%, to 1,903.03.

12:07 EDTRCLRoyal Caribbean technical comments before earnings
The shares are sitting very close to long-term uptrend support at the $80 area, closing price basis. If the shares break below $80 on bearish news, the long-term uptrend would be broken, which is bearish for future price. Next support levels to watch below as potential downside objectives are at $77.82, $75.35, and $72.76. If the news is bullish, a further reaction up and away from $80 would put the stock back into the long-term uptrend channel. Next resistance levels to watch above the current price at $81.77 are at $82.68, $85.28, and $88.54.
