What is Carnival Corporation & worth?

The stock is currently trading at US$43.56 on the share market, which means it is overvalued by 44% compared to my intrinsic value of $30.19. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. If you like the stock, you may want to keep an eye out for a potential price decline in the future. Since Carnival Corporation &’s share price is quite volatile, this could mean it can sink lower (or rise even further) in the future, giving us another chance to invest.

Can we expect growth from Carnival Corporation &?

NYSE:CCL Past and Future Earnings, February 6th 2020

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Buying a great company with a robust outlook at a cheap price is always a good investment, so let’s also take a look at the company's future expectations. Carnival Corporation &’s earnings growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming years, indicating a solid future ahead. This should lead to robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? It seems like the market has well and truly priced in CCL’s positive outlook, with shares trading above its fair value. However, this brings up another question – is now the right time to sell? If you believe CCL should trade below its current price, selling high and buying it back up again when its price falls towards its real value can be profitable. But before you make this decision, take a look at whether its fundamentals have changed.

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on CCL for some time, now may not be the best time to enter into the stock. The price has surpassed its true value, which means there’s no upside from mispricing. However, the optimistic prospect is encouraging for CCL, which means it’s worth diving deeper into other factors in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
