Carnival recently reported robust first quarter financial results and provided a strong guidance. Following this announcement, Feinseth noted the company has managed to “overcome past issues and its size continues to drive economies of scale and improving operating performance,” which Tigress analysts think will result in:

  • An accelerating return on capital, driven by the operational advantages of its market leading position
  • Surging economic profit, helped by an expansion and renewal of its fleet
  • Increased shareholder value creation

In addition, Tigress maintains a Strong Buy rating on Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NASDAQ: NCLH) and a Buy rating on Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (NYSE: RCL).
