  • As Norwegian is relatively smaller than its North American cruise peers, we believe that it has significant global capacity growth potential over the next five years.
  • As the baby boomers enter retirement, they are likely to travel more. Norwegian's freestyle cruising should play into cross-generational travel trends, allowing families across demographics to travel together.
  • Norwegian can draw on knowledge of the leisure industry from its sponsors as well as the acquisition of Prestige, gathering best practices and leverage with vendors.
  • NCLH profitability is improving. The YoY profit margin change was 1.09 percentage points. See NCLH profitability chart.
  • NCLH Price/Sales ratio is 1.00, which is low compared to its industry peers’ P/S ratios. See NCLH forward Price/Sales ratio chart.

5. What are the reasons to sell NCLH? Why should I sell NCLH stock?

  • NCLH quarterly revenue growth was -99.00%, lower than the industry and sector average revenue growth (1.08% and 0.78%, respectively). See NCLH revenue growth chart.
