I remember last year, when the stock was hovering around it’s all time high, some of the big hitters in the financial world were predicting $165 per share, how did that pan out??

The big hitters were saying this about all stocks. What's your point?

RCL stock Jan 2018 Around $138.00 July 2018 around $138.00 Mid December 2019 to Mid Jan 2020 around  $138.00 Might not hit $138.00 but if it get to $80.00 in a year. A great profit I will see. Along with the OBC and the small dividends if any.

They need more corporate space for what?

Royal Caribbean has been negotiating with Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez and the commission, primarily Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa, over the terms of the land and structure lease agreement. The trio has a successful track record: Royal Caribbean’s new cruise terminal at the port opened in November 2018.

In the campus expansion proposal the committee approved Monday, Royal Caribbean will pay the county $311 million in rent over the course of 40 years with the option to extend the lease for two five-year terms after that. 

The county will provide Royal Caribbean with an estimated $20.9 million in maintenance, utilities and repairs for its existing office buildings. The county will also give Royal Caribbean around $24.1 million in insurance reimbursements and rent-and-maintenance credits over the course of the lease. 

The new projects would expand Royal Caribbean’s claim on the southwest corner of PortMiami by more than three acres.

I wonder if the stock will drop with the cases of COVID discovered on Oasis with crew members just now?  Makes me think it will go up VS down. 🤷‍♂️

14 crew members so far.

 

Not surprising since US is the primary market of Coronavirus cases.

I'm thinking all cruising stocks may suffer on Monday with the ongoing Zaandam saga

On the other hand, Wall Street doesn't giving a flying {you know what} who lives or dies, just that their stock prices go up

I don't know about the crazy pricing on the stocks but I can't even imagine what the cruise lines' PR departments are going to come up with to attract new comers to cruising when they start running again. If I had never cruised before I don't think I'd be considering one now.

Don't know if you read my posts on other threads, however I posted yesterday (I think?) I had a ZOOM on-line meeting with colleagues, about 40 of us. Many know me as the cruiser. There's one other cruise fan in the bunch. One of my colleagues asked me what I thought about the current cruising issues, and if I'd cruise again. The discussion went on with at least 5 more of my colleagues saying basically I am nuts to ever think of cruising again and they would never bring their families on a ship.... and then watching the screen several others who had not voiced opinions were nodding their heads up and down.

That's not a very nice thing to say. :classic_huh:

 

One of the articles on Seeking Alpha mentioned that next Friday is an important day, because companies will be posting their first quarter earnings and future projections. SA is opinion pieces but for gamblers (excuse me, stock market people) many stocks will either go way up or way down. DH owns quite a bit of RCL in his IRA, but for now, I am just holding on to cash.

The US has the most confirmed because where doing the most testing. 85% of pos. cases are light symptoms. In other countries those cases go under Radar 

The stock is going to bounce around for a while. You don’t have to buy at the lowest 

just on the way up LOL

Jeeze, really? I was saying it tongue in cheek. Actually it was 102%, so that would be more than double. Unless math has changed. 

I actually was trying to be tongue in cheek, too. I thought you had a typo leaving out a decimal (10.2) since the other stock quoted was 15% or something. Should have checked the prices myself, I guess.  Sorry I didn't get the joke.

The most tests is the most tests 
 I don’t Know if the knock Donald Trump article is Quotable. LOL 

I Guess the press in other Countries Twist 
things the way the want them also 

50,000 more tests is more tests

-1 is closer to 1. Than 3.4  Death rate 

37,000 is in between the range of ,26000 and 52000 Flue death rate 
 

Hope all stay safe and nobody ends up in any of those stats in any country

I'm not sure why?😕

 

With 130000 cases - as well as the highest growth - it's a simple fact that they have the most cases. Given that extensive penetration, it's an unfortunate but realistic outcome that recent cruises with lots of US passengers have a high chance of that exposure.

Despite some thinking that there will be loyalty downgrades and bad pricing, I'm of the view that it's more likely they'll actually be trying to entice their loyalty members. 

 

Signing up new cruisers in the near future after restart is a much tougher sell. Once the broader market sees it's safe, _that's_ when they'll return.

"Most testing" is a proportional term. If you said "the most tests" sure. But testing is a proportion of your sample/population size. In this case they aren't.

No they're not. The US has fewer people than China and more than Australia, but our population is sort of dispersed without a lot of unity. But I think we're trying. The San Francisco Bay Area counties have a good stay at home compliance rate and we are entering our third week...with probably more to come. Of course, when testing is increased, the number of cases goes up and the mortality rate goes down. Strange times.

We own 100 shares each of RCL and Carnival - both offer shareholder benefits in the form of OBC.

Glad I never look at the price of either....

I was thinking of buying shares too. Do the OBC start at 100 shares?

Its a long term investment. It will come back up but its going to be a very long time. If investing made everyone rich everyone would do it. Its all timing.    Lets be honest nobody has a crystal ball. They could go bankrupt. Probably wont but they could.  Im an investor in Royal stock but I have no expectations of it going up anytime soon

DW and I pulled the trigger and bought 100 shares this morning.  I think we got a great deal and I'm optimistic, over time, stock will go back up.  We bought to enjoy the additional OBC on future sailings.
