Yes it is!  All of the travel stock I purchased in March is doing well and even some I purchased a little over a week ago.  I'm so glad I purchased Carnival stock when I did.  It is a good investment and the OBC is a bonus. Go Carnival! I'm sure that once there is a vaccine or the virus has run its course, Carnival will someday be back to pre-covid numbers.

I agree, once there is a reliable vaccine CCL stock and any stock related to travel will go up. I bought CCL stock at 8.01 dollars.

I was hoping it will go back down to the $8 mark but looks like it won't happen again anytime soon.

I better purchase some now before it keeps climbing. My first time buying stock and I think is a good investment.

As a long time CCL shareholder it has been quite a ride.  Bookings across all of the major cruise lines are up for Q-4 this year and in 2021.  Will be interesting to see what the future holds.  What changes we will see when cruising resumes will have some impact in any number of ways--good and bad.  We are not currently adding to our position but we are not selling either.  As an earlier poster said the OBC is a nice perk.

Something happened to my wire transfer a couple of weeks ago! I thought I was in at 12, I guess not! At 16 now, ugh!

Up another $2+ today. I doubt it will get back down to $8, but I'm not sure it won't come back down quite a bit again, especially if the August date is pushed back. I still believe it is going to be a bumpy ride.

As another long time CCL shareholder I have to agree with you on the ride. Good thing I bought the stock as wanting to own a piece of something I enjoyed doing rather than a retirement investment.

 

As for the future, I am interested in what the shoreside port authorities are going to do. I keep reading about both nursing homes, assisted living facilities, long term care facilities, and local emergency management authorities who were no where near following federal pandemic guidelines relative to PPE stockpiles, nor meeting staffing levels and training requirements. Reopening ports will require them to step up, and I am betting many will refuse to do so. I will never spend another dollar in Ft Lauderdale for example.

My dh is mad at me.  I have wanted to buy some CCL stock for many years but I did not want to possibly lose money.    When the stock went down to 8. I bought 100 shares.  He kept telling me to buy more, but I was chicken, as I had never dabbled in the stock market before.  Also bought 100 shares of NCL stock at a bit above 7.  Both stocks up.  Would love them to go up to before-covid prices!

CCl stock is going up and up hopefully it will continue.

 

Our Carnival stock adventure. Never played the market before and thought we bought  100 shares last year at $40.53 a share. Just discovered all we did was put money in an account. Bought 200  shares yesterday for $16.23 a share with $800 still in our account. Saved money and 100 extra shares at a lower rate,  that was a wonderful day In the Market.

You caught both stocks at their bottoms and doubled your money in, what, two months?  Not even the most famous stock pickers can do that consistently.  Got any more hot tips for us?  😁

 

In order for either of them to hit their pre-COVID prices, they'd have to triple.  Let's just say they have a long way to go before they can get there.

I bought in at $32.  It was the lowest I had seen it in years.  Doh!  So I waited and bought more at $8.  Market is looking good today👍

I waited to be sure it had bottomed out - I missed rock bottom but bought in at $9 a share, which I'm happy with. I bought into Delta and Hilton at the same time, and while I didn't time either of them as well as CCL, they're both up from where I bought in. I took a bath on HTZ (thought it had bottomed out at $3, but then they declared bankruptcy) but for a relatively small amount compared to what I've made on the others. I don't expect every investment to be a winner. 🙂

The market is doing great today.  I bought 100 shares of Carnival in early March at $27 and thought I got a great deal. haha.  But I bought the other 600 shares when it was $10 and under, so I am way ahead.  I bought some United stock when it dipped a couple of weeks ago and am already almost $10,000 ahead on that stock alone. Of course it fluctuates daily, but over time that will be a winner. The travel stocks may be a risky investment, but to pain, no gain.  I am kicking myself for only purchasing 50 shares of Royal in the low 20s.  But I am happy with all of my purchases of stock.  This was a great opportunity to pick them up and I spread it out over several airlines.

I want Carnival to succeed and am happy that I made the investments.

I bought a whole bunch about $30. Thought good dividend.

 

Before that I bought chevron and exxon, nice dividend. I sure didnt see this virus coming.

 

Luckily I sold a winner before that, which is where I got the money to buy these great safe dividend stocks. At least now I think long term I'll survive my terrible picks.

It all about buying the right stock at the right time, I don't think anyone knows that. I would say just watch how the Market responds to the economy but but low and let it ride, yes, you are taking a chance but the younger you are the more chances you can take.I knew CCl stock would bounce back when and how much is anyone's ones guess.

Yes! I want them to succeed as well because I also liked cruising on HAL and Princess which is nice about the stock you can use at these brands as well.

My son pushed me hard enough and I bought 300 shares when it was $10. He bought 3 or 4 times and has about 1,000 shares. Now I know I should have bought more but im happy with the 300.

That is probably a good investment for the long run. Now if the ccl market goes crazy, which is good for the company ,it may split but how it is split no one really knows. I sold my shares for 48.00 dollars a share years ago. If it gets back to that price and people bought low and sell high they could make some serious money depending how many shares were bought.

Retired now and have a little "play" money so I thought I'd take some chances. Bought NCL at 7.9. It's at 17.07. Bought RCI at 35.72. It's at 53.10.  Bought CCL in april and got greedy, so I sold half for a nice profit. Should have held on, so bought more last week at 13.82, it's at 17.10 today. Bought Allegiant Air at $94.95 and it's at 109.56 this morning. I'd been watching it since it was 60.6. Shoulda coulda woulda bought then. Who would have thought travel stocks would be up at this time? Oh well, continuing to watch closely for bargains. I know it's a gamble, but I think the odds are better than all the times I pulled the handle on the casino slot machines.

It will probably go up and down for a while but don't sell .Once there is a reliable vaccine for COVID-19 ,which could be by years end, and the ships are sailing again things will get back to normal.
