As some of the few travel stocks that have failed to fully recover from the pandemic, plenty of investors have tried to bottom-fish in cruise-line names like Carnival (NYSE:CCL) stock. Unfortunately, these contrarian wagers have failed to pan out.
Investors who have dabbled in CCL or its peers haven’t reaped substantial gains. Instead, going against the grain has led to heavy losses. Although the industry is in a much better place now compared to last year, cruise lines have a way to go before attaining pre-virus revenue and earnings levels.
Worse yet, this recovery, which has arrived far more gradually than the recovery for airlines, hotels, and casinos, is likely to be further stretched out by factors outside the pandemic. Put it all together, and it’s doubtful that this stock, despite being down more than 85% since 2020, has enough rebound potential to outweigh its still-high level of risk.
