RCL-N vs. CCL-N. He would be cautious on both names. Both businesses will survive but never be the same. There is enough risk investing in safe stocks that you don't need to buy these.

(A Top Pick Jan 07/19, Up 35%) He still holds it. About 12 times earnings. Cruise lines are growing faster than the economy. He trimmed a little bit of weight. He would not be surprised at $155 in the next year. It is the best managed of the cruise lines. It is a bit of a demographic play.

(A Top Pick May 04/18, Up 7%) Supply concerns have recently weighed on the share price of the three big cruise lines with weakness in Europe and the Caribbean. RCL is still growing revenue at a healthy rate. In 2020-21, new maritime regulations about fuel will take out a lot of supply.

Well-run. Demographics favour cruise lines; seniors like cruises. There's growth opportunity in Asia where RCL has a dominant position. Trades at a cheap 11.5x earnings. Also, ships can easily be moved to high-demand areas; RCL can literally move their assets around to make money. Personally, he doesn't like cruises, but he knows many who do.

There is worry over over-supply in the industry. He likes this company and thinks the growth rate in cruising is still in line with ships being built. The company is managed well. The developed countries are cruising and the developing countries are starting to cruise. We increase cruising as we age. (Analysts’ price target is $139.58)

(Past Top Pick May 4, 2018, Up 21%) It did poorly in the first half of the year on concerns of capacity additions, but it has come back. He still holds it. As long as the economy is strong, this will continue to do well. But trim if the economy pulls back.

Headwind: this spring, oil prices started to rise, and the market got worried that we're in the peak of the cycle. But the business is growing 6% annually in volumes, and the Chinese are getting into this business.

This is at a valuation high. His model price is $199.99, 50% higher than the current stock price. This just had a positive transit. Any pullback to EBV+3 of $99, he would certainly be a buyer.

He still likes this as well as Carnival (CCL-N). When consumers have money, they spend it on leisure and travel. We have an aging population that really likes cruising. Royal Caribbean gets about 10% of their revenue from China. This is a long-term theme that is not going away.

(A Top Pick July 13/16. Up 57%.) Last summer there was the zika virus which was causing worries about going to the tropics. There was also a nasty Isis incident on the French Riviera which caused fear of travel. The cruise line business is still great. Demand for cruises is growing faster than the economy, and there are only 3 big cruise lines.

Carnival Cruise (CCL-N) or Royal Caribbean Cruise (RCL-N)? As a thematic investor, one of the key themes he is interested in is travel and leisure. Both these companies play into that theme, as does Disney (DIS-N). Both are well run companies and global. He would buy either one. Both should grow earnings in the mid-teens, and you could do well in either one.
