Investing in cruise ships
03 Mar 2020 (67 views)

An analyst stated that they have recently invested in the cruise ship business as the share price had dropped a lot due to the corona virus epidemic. He expects the share to recover when the crisis is over.

Here are the relevant figures for two big companies in this industry
 
  Current price Peak during past 5 years Drop from peak Price Earning Dividend yield
           
Royal Caribean 33 73 0.45 9 3.88
Carnival Corp 80 133 0.60 7.65 5.98
.
I find Carnival Corp to be more attractive than Royal Caribean. The chart for Carnival is shown below.
