Why Carnival Stock Fell 7% on Friday

Why Carnival Stock Fell 7% on Friday

Shares of Carnival (NYSE: CCL), the world's biggest cruise line operator, were sliding today, in line with a broad market sell-off on fears of rising interest rates and a recession. For the third day in a row, stocks sank after the Federal Reserve raised the fed funds rate by 75 basis points, and Fed chair Jerome Powell said the central bank would continue to raise rates to rein in inflation, even if it means rising unemployment and an increased risk of a recession. The slide in the stock market over the last few days seems to reflect investors' view that the chances of a recession have increased, and that's bad news for travel stocks like Carnival, as travel, and vacations like cruising, are especially vulnerable.
