SeaWorld reports Q1 EPS (44c), consensus (63c)

Reports Q1 revenue $220.58M, consensus $215.91M. Attendance increased by 100,000 or 3.6%, to 3.3M guests from the Q1 of 2018. Reports Q1 revenue per capita $66.04. "We are pleased with our first quarter results that exceeded the prior year quarter. Increased attendance and revenue growth and the realization and flow through of cost savings are demonstrating improved operating leverage," said Gus Antorcha, CEO of SeaWorld. "Attendance and revenue primarily benefitted from increased demand and increased in park spending which was partially offset by impacts from unfavorable weather in some of our parks and the shift in the timing of Easter and school spring break in some of our markets from the first quarter to the second quarter. Our improved results reflect our focus on improved marketing and communications initiatives, new pricing strategies, and the favorable guest reception to our new rides and compelling attractions and events. Our results also reflect the impact of our successful and ongoing efforts to reduce costs. Despite this solid start to the year, we know we still have significant opportunity for further improvement."

SeaWorld upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR
B. Riley FBR analyst Eric Wold upgraded SeaWorld Entertainment (SEAS) to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $34 from $30 after taking over coverage from Barton Crockett. The analyst also maintained a Buy rating on Cedar Fair (FUN) and trimmed his firm's price target to $60 from $61. Wold also kept a Buy rating on Six Flags Entertainment (SIX) while lowering its price target to $57 from $72. He has a favorable view of the theme park sector.

B. Riley upgrades SeaWorld, sees attendance hitting pre-Blackfish levels
B. Riley FBR upgraded SeaWorld Entertainment (SEAS) to Buy from Neutral after transferring coverage of the Theme Park universe to Eric Wold. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $34 from $30. The stock in premarket trading is down 29c to $48.65. As a leading operator of differentiated theme parks as well as driving animal preservation and education, SeaWorld is well positioned to benefit from increased global consumer brand awareness and improving economies of scale, Wold tells investors in a research note. Further, he sees an attractive opportunity for the company not only to return to attendance levels that were attained prior to the Blackfish fallout six years ago, but to do so with an improved cost structure that will drive strengthening free cash flow and returns to shareholders. The 20% pullback in shares over the past six months provides an attractive opportunity to add to positions, says Wold. He has a positive view of the Theme Park space and kept Buy ratings on Cedar Fair (FUN) and Six Flags Entertainment (SIX).

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. SeaWorld (SEAS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with Eric Wold saying as a leading operator of differentiated theme parks as well as driving animal preservation and education, SeaWorld is well positioned to benefit from increased global consumer brand awareness and improving economies of scale. 2. Trex Company (TREX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst John Baugh saying the stock is trading at an attractive level with a risk/reward "very favorable" below $60. 3. Five Below (FIVE) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Christopher Prykull saying the stock is trading at a discount to Five Below's "growing" intrinsic value as building brand awareness, "robust" new store performance, and tailwinds from initiatives such as remodels should sustain double-digit top- and bottom-line growth. 4. People's Utah Bancorp (PUB) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Sandler O'Neill with analyst Andrew Liesch saying the bank has consistently posted strong operating results since its IPO in 2015 but that the stock has declined 15% year-to-date and underperformed the Nasdaq Bank Index. 5. Cheniere Energy (LNG) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Michael Lapides saying he views Cheniere as the best way for investors to gain exposure to the growing U.S. liquefied natural gas industry.

KeyBanc analyst Brett Andress maintained an Overweight rating and $37 price target on SeaWorld, saying he is "incrementally confident" that fiscal 2019 is off to a strong start, citing metrics from his Key First Look Data that point toward Q1 attendance growth, indicative of both sustained operational momentum and a "solid" opening weekend for Orlando's Sesame land.
