I can hardly wait to hear the post earnings rationalization from SeaWorld "management"
This ought to be fun.
What possible reasons will they come up with? Weather? Already trotted that one out? Their CFO already tried some very suspicious balance sheet maneuverings even before the Blackfish phenomena hit but some sharp analysts already picked up on it.
I view the entire rotten bunch of morally bankrupt cowards as not unlike the Orcas caught up in kidnapping nets and the leftovers slowly left to die a miserable death... Watch out below as in less than $10 once the bleeding stops..
Just a bad investment period. Their image will never be the same again unless they do something dramatic. In the back of people's minds there will always be the questions. Are these animals suffering, is this wrong? People's social conscience on this topic has been awakened and it will always be in the background. People who love animals go to Sea World. But will they now with this knowledge? My bet is they won't. Blackfish is not some small documentary. It's mainstream now. It's all over for SeaWorld.
