TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Carnival as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations, increase in net income 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. Highlights from the ratings report include:
- CCL's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 5.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 4.4%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry. The net income increased by 158.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $41.00 million to $106.00 million.
- Net operating cash flow has slightly increased to $1,196.00 million or 3.37% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, CARNIVAL CORP/PLC (USA) has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -5.08%.
- The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.39, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Even though the company has a strong debt-to-equity ratio, the quick ratio of 0.13 is very weak and demonstrates a lack of ability to pay short-term obligations.
