Takeaway: Asia is the bright spot for RCL and with earnings next Monday, can it lift results?

  • According to our sources, bookings have been hot for RCL’s ships in Asia (Mariner, Voyager, Quantum, Explorer, Legend) and likely above management expectations.
  • Almost all of the shorter dated itineraries have been completely sold out for the year.
  • There are still available cabins for the longer-dated itineraries but they account for only a fraction of RCL’s Asia business.
  • Pricing, on the other hand, have been mixed, with the older fleet underperforming Quantum by a wide margin

Instant Insight: We Remain Long Term Bulls On Germany - zen44


Germany is one equity market we want to highlight this morning.


The DAX continues to be in a bullish formation and we remain long term bulls. Exports account for 47% of German GDP, so Mario Draghi’s weak EUR policy is obviously a huge TAILWIND for Germany. In addition, their fundamentals are outperforming peers and are showing positive lift (business & economic confidence; IP, factory orders, etc).


Even as the DAX has had a major run over the past six months, over the past five years, it has dramatically underperformed its U.S. counterparts.  On a related note, tomorrow at 11am, our European Analyst Matt Hedrick will be presenting a 50-page deck that outlines that continued case to be long of German equities.
