Deutsche Bank names Norwegian top 2019 pick in cruise lines

While the cruise lines remain fairly consensus long picks on the sell-side, particularly Royal Caribbean (RCL) and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH), the consensus is not always wrong, Deutsche Bank analyst Chris Woronka tells investors in a research note. As the retail sector continues to fight disintermediation from online, gaming has to deal with China macro concerns, and lodging confronts concerns about decelerating corporate room demand, the cruise industry's "wall of worry" appears to be much more manageable to navigate, says the analyst. He sees the industry benefiting from positioning in 2019. Woronka thinks Royal and Norwegian offer the best risk/rewards and names Norwegian his top pick for 2019.

JPMorgan says stay long Royal Caribbean, Norwegian on 'depressed' valuations
JPMorgan analyst Brandt Montour tells investors to stay long shares of Royal Caribbean (RCL) and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) given the companies' "depressed" valuations. The analyst is positive on Cruise shares in 2019 as he sees "strong/stable" fundamentals. The stocks can outperform from here as operators continue to execute modest organic pricing/net yield growth and low-teens earnings growth, says the analyst. He keeps Overweight ratings on Royal and Norwegian and a Neutral rating on Carnival (CCL).

Norwegian Cruise Line upgraded to Outperform at Bernstein
As previously reported, Bernstein analyst David Beckel upgraded Norwegian Cruise Line to Outperform from Market Perform, with a $57 price target, to reflect a positive shift in his view of the company's prospects. The analyst also believes the recent capitulation in Cruise sector valuations presents a compelling risk/reward opportunity and a cheap option on a reversal in cycle sentiment.

Royal Caribbean shares remain undervalued, says Stifel
After attending an event with Royal Caribbean upper management and members of the travel agent community that was hosted aboard Celebrity Edge, the first new build for the Celebrity brand in over six years, Stifel analyst Steven Wieczynski said he came away with the drivers of his constructive thesis "firmly intact" and he continues to view the shares as undervalued. Echoing what they said during their Q3 call, Royal Caribbean management noted that the company is in a stronger booked position for 2019 than it was in at the same time last year for 2018, noted Wieczynski, who reiterates a Buy rating and $157 price target on the stock.

Barclays a buyer of Royal Caribbean, Norwegian after yesterday's selloff
Barclays analyst Felicia Hendrix is a buyer of Royal Caribbean (RCL) and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) following yesterday's selloff. Carnival's earnings call yesterday took down all three cruise stocks by "injecting uncertainty regarding Europe into the narrative," Hendrix tells investors in a research note. The analyst acknowledges that there will now be an overhang on the entire group until it becomes clear that this is a Carnival-specific issue. However, it is important to understand that Carnival's strategy in Europe has been operating country-specific brands that source from very specific markets, says Hendrix. The analyst points out that in contrast, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian's brands are globally sourced and marketed, allowing them to fill their ships with customers that will pay the most from anywhere in the world.

He keeps a Buy rating on Carnival, but says the stock will likely be range-bound until next earnings.

The analyst believes overall cruise industry demand remains strong based on his contacts and feels investor concerns, following Carnival's December 20th FY2019 guidance, of industry European passenger sourced pricing being an issue appear misplaced.
