TheStreet Ratings rates Carnival as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in stock price during the past year, attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. You can view the full Carnival Ratings Report.
