Carnival downgraded to Neutral on capacity concerns at Credit Suisse

As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Tim Ramskill downgraded Carnival (CCL) to Neutral from Outperform, as he is worried that his estimate of absolute industry capacity growth in 2018-2021 is double that of the last five years. This capacity growth is a greater concern given demand risks, said Ramskill, who cited risk to the top 3 cruise markets - the Caribbean post Hurricane Irma, the Mediterranean post the Barcelona terror attacks and China with the Korea travel ban still in place. He cut his 2018 yield growth view to 1.5% from 3%, lowered his EPS estimate by 10% and dropped his price target on Carnival shares to $70 from $78. Other publicly traded cruise operators include Royal Caribbean (RCL) and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH).

Carnival price target raised to $76 from $67 at UBS
UBS analyst Robin Farley raised her price target on Carnival to $76 from $67. The analyst noted guidance for the second half of the year is only up 1-2% but he believes the company is being conservative given tougher comps and the uncertainty around any travel incidents when looking out six months. Farley reiterated her Buy rating on Carnival shares.

Norwegian Cruise Line should deliver beat and raise results, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Steven Wieczynski says that the results and comments of Royal Caribbean (RCL) and Carnival (CCL) indicate that Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) will report beat and raise Q2 results. The analyst expects Norwegian, like Royal Caribbean and Carnival, to benefit from higher prices. He also expects Norwegian to be boosted by a reduction of "operational headwinds" which should enable its yield to rise more than that of its peers in 2018. The analyst keeps a $60 price target and a Buy rating on Norwegian.

Grambling also raised his price target for Neutral-rated Carnival (CCL) to $68 from $60 and for Neutral-rated Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) to $60 from $55.

Carnival OCEAN platform to be 'powerful competitive advantage,' says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst David Beckel said Carnival's OCEAN "connected experience" platform, unveiled at CES 2017, could, and likely will, be emulated to some extent across the entire travel industry. However, citing Carnival's head start, scale, and technology expertise, he sees OCEAN becoming a "powerful competitive advantage for the company for years to come." Beckel keeps his Outperform rating and $63 price target on Carnival shares.

Royal Caribbean should be bought on any 'irrational' weakness, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Steven M. Wieczynski does not expect Royal Caribbean's Q2 results to significantly beat expectations, and he thinks investors' expectations for the results may be "unrealistic," particularly regarding the anticipation of increases in the company's 2017 guidance. However, he recommends buying the stock on any "irrational" weakness following the results, as he thinks that the company's 2018 results could beat his expectations and expects the company's multiple and capital returns to increase. He keeps a $125 price target and a Buy rating on the stock.

Agios Pharmaceuticals (AGIO) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Leerink with analyst Michael Schmidt citing his higher-level conviction regarding the commercial opportunity for its IDH inhibitors Idhifa and ivosidenib in acute myeloid leukemia following Idhifa FDA-approval and his recent checks indicating a high degree of enthusiasm for these agents in the physician community pointing to potential good initial uptake. 5. Sonoco Products (SON) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Vertical Research with analyst Chip Dillion citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
