CARNIVAL Stock Forecast: Conclusion

The company is slowly reviving with increased bookings and occupancy rates (at 84%) but the huge losses and high debts are a great disappointment. Moreover, the company is expecting negative losses, and EBITDA to decrease in the 4th quarter which is leading to a fall in the stock price. The recession and the slow economy can also be seen as short-term risks for the company. So, investors should be mindful of all the negative factors before taking a call.
