Directors dealings: Carnival non-exec jumps ship at start of 2017

(ShareCast News) - Carnival non-executive Director Sir Jonathon Band sold some shares after the start of the new year.
Band sold 6,276 shares at an individual price of $53.47, for a total consideration of $276,264.1, on 18 January, the cruiseline operator said in a statement.

On 19 December, analysts at Berenberg downgraded their recommendation on Carnival shares from 'Buy' to 'Hold' and lowered their target from $55.0 to $50.0.

The Sterling price target was lowered from 4,200p to 4,000p.

To back-up their investment thesis, the analysts pointed to recent trends in the cost of fuel, a further strengthening in the US dollar and higher interest rates.

Nevertheless, they were optimistic on the outlook for yields in the cruise industry going into 2017.

Shares in Carnival ended the session down by 1.51% at 4,105p, not far off their 52-week highs of 4,105p.

On a more positive note, on 20 January analysts at HSBC upped their target on the shares form $60.0 to $62.0 and maintained a 'buy' recommendation.

"Fuel and currency will weigh on 2017 but valuation still provides upside," adding that the firm´s fundamentals remained "attractive".
