Shareholder benefit


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Anyone thinking of taking advantage of that benefit should consider buying now. When this is over, Carnival may never again drop below 30 a share. I increased my shares when it was under 10 and never plan to drop below 200 as I imagine that at some point they may increase the shares needed to get the benefit. My guess is that yesterdays news pushes Carnival over 30 today never to drop below again.

30.55 at the moment, and making this shareholder very very happy that I got what I did at 7.99. 😃  Just wishing I had grabbed a whole lot more at that price!!

 

 

Me too, already quadrupled in value, wish I had sunk all I had in it.

We bought it years and years ago in the mid 30s range. I did not think it would get near our buying price this quickly with them not sailing yet from US ports.

In my opinion Carnival stock is overvalued to the point of stupidity. Up to their necks in debt, have not made a dime in over a year, who knows when they will sail again, have diluted their stock value  by selling millions of extra shares, etc etc. Was a great deal at $7.99  which is probably what it is worth at the moment. 

Long term think it would be a great stock to own, and will keep what I own. Would be very wary of buying new shares at the current price.

 

No matter what happens to the stock..............look forward to being on one of their ships ASAP or on any ship. Given up on sailing out of the US and making reservations sailing elsewhere.

I kick myself for not getting it when I was looking at $11.  I ended up about $25. I put in for the benefit and just got my email a couple days ago and the credit is showing on my cruise docs.

I had bought 100 shares at 7.99, and then 100 at 17.  Too chicken to buy more, as that was my first dabble in the market!

I have exactly 100 shares that I bought at $18 just for the shareholder benefit. My plan was to hold onto them for the benefit, but if it goes over $36 I think I'm going to sell. The profit I will make off of those will be a lot more than the shareholder benefit I would be earning since we only cruise once every couple years or so. I'll put that chunk of change in our future cruise fund 🙂

Feeling so jealous! After years of saying I was going to buy 100 shares of both CCL and RCL for the shareholder benefits, I finally did in January 2020 at $45 and $115 respectively. Yup, what an idiot, right? I can laugh at it now, but it was painful watching the bottom fall out one week later.

Bummer, and you can't even cruise to get the benefit. Sad situation.

Some Carnival brands are cruising. Not sure if Americans are welcome to sail, though.

That is a forward looking statement that has no basis in fact. The market prices the stock based on many factors, but there is nothing to suggest the stock has a floor at $30. Some once rock solid stocks have fallen to zero and wiped out the shareholders entirely. Pan Am and Kodak come to mind. 

 

Be aware that the $50 share price before the debacle will probably not return anytime soon. One reason a significantly lower capacity, the other is a rather large number of shares have been sold recently to keep the company afloat. (pun intended) The total shares will have an impact on the price going forward, and the additional shares dilutes the value of the current shareholders. Carnival is an odd duck in the investment world as there is a US based company and a UK based company, as a LLC and PLC respectfully. They report as a combined entity, and shares trade on New York and London stock exchanges. 

 

The stockholder benefit is a wonderful  gesture on the part of the board of directors. However, before you invest please take advice from a professional if purchasing CCL shares is suitable for you.

More for my info than anyone else's, let's list the Corporation's lines, when they plan to sail, and who's welcome to sail on those first sailings:

 

Carnival - TBD, TBD

Princess - August, UK residents only

Holland - TBD, TBD

Seabourn - July, anyone fully vaccinated who can get to Greece?

Cunard - June, UK residents only

AIDA - sailing now, German residents only

Costa - May, Italian/EU/Schengen residents only?

P&O UK - June, UK residents only

P&O Australia - TBD, TBD

 

It looks like the only hope (a slim one) for an American to cruise on a Carnival Corporation ship this summer is Seabourn..  This kind of thing changes on a moment's notice, of course.

I see Carnival listings for Australia, Carnival Splendor from Sydney in Aug. 2021 and later. July cruises were listed in the search but came up, "Oh Snap." Are those being cancelled from month to month along with Carnival's cruises in the Carribbean?

CCL sure doesn't have an issue bombarding my in box with unsolicited emails....LOL.   THEY LOVE sending emails along with their PVP's.
