Norwegian Cruise Line downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Patrick Scholes downgraded Norwegian Cruise Line to Hold from Buy and lowered its price target to $43 from $52 following a recent pricing survey that indicates a broad based slowdown across all global regions. Scholes said Norwegian's pricing went to negative 1.5% in September from +1.3% in August and has decelerated every month since April. The analyst said the company's high-end Prestige brands were especially weak and it appears pricing for Regent Seven Seas took another leg down, something he believes is not reflected in August earnings guidance.

Cruise prices decelerating, says SunTrust

The analyst reports that Carnival's (CCL) advertised prices are up only 1.1%, versus a 6.4% jump previously, while Royal Caribbean's prices dropped 1.5% versus a 5.3% gain previously. Norwegian Cruise Line's (NCLH) prices also declined 1.5%, while "most brands were down sequentially," according to Scholes. The analyst downgraded his rating on Norwegian to Hold from Buy and cut his price target on that stock to $43 from $52. He reduced his price target on Royal Caribbean to $92 from $97 and lowered his price target on Carnival to $54 from $57. However, the analyst keeps Buy ratings on the latter two stocks.
