RCL Stock: Royal Caribbean Still Has a Tall Mountain to Climb

While volatility is on the rise in broader markets, investors wonder if now could be a good time to buy Royal Caribbean (NYSE:RCL). After all, like many other battered travel and cruise names, RCL stock is down over 50% year-to-date.

However, that metric tells only half the story. Since the lows hit in March, the shares have tripled in value, in part due to hopes for a V-shaped economic recovery and the development of a vaccine.

Abhinav Sharma and Juan Luis Nicolau of Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Tech recently conducted a study on the effects of the pandemic on the travel industry. They conclude that while hotels, airlines, cruise lines and car rental agencies have

By Eric M. Johnson, Tim Hepher

SEATTLE/PARIS (Reuters) – Boeing Co is nearing a decision to shift more 787 Dreamliner production to South Carolina, industry sources said, a cost-cutting strategy accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic that would deplete its iconic factory north of Seattle.

As recently as last year, Boeing was making record numbers of 787s at its Everett widebody hub north of Seattle and – since 2012 – a second plant in North Charleston, South Carolina.

But the strategy of supporting two plants has been severely tested by the coronavirus slump in international travel, on top of a cyclical downturn in demand for big jets.

The decision marks a watershed moment in a decade-long saga that has seen the 787 emerge as an alternative cash cow to the 737

WV Travel Team: Saying goodbye to summer at Deep Creek’s Wisp All Season Resort | Travel

SWANTON, Md. — When I boarded the pontoon boat at Deep Creek Lake State Park, I expected a relaxing ride along the shores of Maryland’s largest inland body of water. While I got what I expected, the engrossing narrative of skipper Bob Salvucci added much to the experience.

“You want to explore the north or south end of the lake?” Salvucci asked as we set off from the dock. “The north takes in the town of McHenry, the ski area and the dam. The south includes a look at the house Einstein vacationed in back in 1946, the beautiful shoreline with some incredible mega-mansions and the sail boat section of the lake, home of the Turkey Neck Yacht Club.”

Our party of seven picked south, and off we went as Salvucci began telling us a bit of local history with amazing panache and verve.

“This area was once the summer

Why Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Stocks Are All Sinking Thursday

What happened

It’s another bad day for investors in Carnival (NYSE:CCL) (NYSE:CUK), Royal Caribbean (NYSE:RCL), and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NASDAQ:NCLH). In Thursday trading, the three major cruise line stocks all fell in near lockstep. As of 11:05 a.m. EDT, shares of Carnival are down 4.1%, Royal Caribbean is down 4.3%, and Norwegian is down 5.2%.

So what

Why are cruise stocks down again today? Take your pick of the reasons. The U.S. Department of Labor just reported that claims for unemployment benefits are rising once more, up 4,000 to 870,000 in the week ended Sept. 19. Economists had been hoping jobless claims would decline, and the fact that they’re moving the wrong way isn’t great news for the economy — or for the discretionary spending power of consumers who might like to take a cruise, if they only had the money.

Elsewhere in Washington, Congress still

No Dee Beckwith for UT Vols

Tennessee will not have versatile freshman Dee Beckwith available for its season opener against South Carolina on Saturday (7:30 p.m. ET, SEC Network).

Beckwith suffered an ankle injury during practice this week and will not make the trip to Columbia, coach Jeremy Pruitt said during Wednesday’s SEC teleconference.

“He’ll be out, and hopefully we can get him back and get him back going again so he can contribute before the season is over,” Pruitt said.

Beckwith emerged as a Swiss Army Knife throughout the preseason, practicing at wide receiver, tight end and running back. He played quarterback in high school.

“In the last week, he really has made a lot of strides — just kind of showing his natural playmaking ability, whether it’s catching the ball or competing on special teams,” Pruitt said. “But, unfortunately, he won’t travel with us this week.”

Another Tennessee running back, freshman Len’Neth Whitehead, is
