I think that's what's known as tempting fate. I was going to sell at £43.61 earlier this afternoon, but took a phone call and then got distracted. By the time I remembered it was back down to £43.09 - an expensive distraction :-(
Not necessarily overpriced - there is rarity value here. Carnival is by far the largest cruise ship operator in what is a growing market, and it is also a big hedge if you think that the pound will weaken against the US dollar.
This petition was stalled in parliament since 12th Aug 15; finally green lit on 12th feb 2016.
The FCA don't even reply on the matter, now is your chance to have your say.
If you hate seeing buys reported as sells etc!!!!!!
Has already been sent to Martin Lewis, Daily Mail, Moneyweek & Watchdog.
My local MP supported this petition by writing to the petitions committee to help un-stall it.
Theres 650 MPs in Westminster, So have you written to your MP? 649 to go!
If this petition doesnt reach 10,000; then imo we might as well have not bothered as it will almost certainly be filed B1N; @ 10,000 the government should respond. We are currently getting approx. 100 new signatures a week, but need 3x that amount to reach the target with only 15 weeks to go.
At 5000 I will send this to the PM & the chancellor as well as my MP again.
So If you havent yet signed or indeed have but havent passed it on to others, then nows the time to do so. If each person who has signed can get just one other person to sign then we will double the total immediately. I have posted to all aim listed gas n oilies, currently doing the footsy 100. But I can only do so much to push this. Really need you guys & gals to help. Thanks to all who have signed so far.
We really need a social / media savvy individual to help generate more interest in this.
Shares in Carnival continues to take on water on Wednesday after sinking almost 8% the day before due to investors reading across from the disappointing results of rival Royal Caribbean Cruises and fears around the Zika virus.
Royal Caribbean fell 15% and Norwegian Cruise Lines 8.6% on Tuesday after Royal Caribbean's guidance for 2016 arrived below expectations, with strong US dollar and higher interest rates cited as drags on earnings.
Analysts at Numis said the falls "look like a classic overreaction", though it retained its 'hold' rating on Carnival shares and noted Royal Caribbean's lack of effects from the Zika virus.
Despite failing to meet Wall Street estimates, Numis said Royal Caribbean's guidance suggested a 25% increase in earnings per share at the mid-point and the company was positive about the outlook, with net revenue yields expected to increase 2.0% to 4.0% on a constant currency basis.
This is in line with the guidance from Carnival which has guided to underlying net revenue yield growth of near 2% and EPS growth of 20%.
Royal Caribbean anticipated strong North American consumer and strong demand for Northern Europe and Asia will counterbalance pricing challenges in the Mediterranean, Australia and Brazil, with Carnival's Mediterranean offering being around 15% of capacity and the Antipodes 9%.
"At this stage, however, we maintain our 'hold' on Carnival for three key reasons," Numis said, "there is a danger that the Zika virus leads to a short-term hiatus in bookings especially given the importance of the Caribbean (circa 30% of CCL capacity); the sector is still vulnerable to customer concern about terrorist attacks, and; despite the bullish noises coming out of the cruise companies the outlook in China/Asia remains uncertain.
"We acknowledge, though, that the rating is now beginning to look attractive on current forecasts."

Cruise operator Carnival has seen a number of analyst upgrades, both before and after releasing forecast-beating fourth-quarter results on 19 December.
At a share price of 2,932p, Carnival trades on an ostensibly pricey forward P/E of around 20, but Credit Suisse analysts said: "We continue to see [Carnival] shares as attractively valued particularly versus longer-term earnings power in a normalized environment".
Analysts at Berenberg, which this week lifted their price target on Carnival from 3,000p to 3,500p, "continue to believe there is a new-found determination on the part of the cruise operators to improve returns on capital, which is and remains pivotal in our positive stance on the sector". The Berenberg analysts also point to a number of other factors, including the continued recovery in the US economy and lower fuel prices, which "leave us optimistic on the outlook for 2015.
Please bear in mind that these people are financial journalists not experts. They have probably done a lot less research and know less about the company than we do. It was obvious that once the oil price started to drop so would the companies costs.
"Falling oil prices have been bad news for the oil majors and junior explorers alike. Shares prices have tumbled and, according to a new article written by Interactive Investor's Harriet Mann, the immediate future looks bleak. But concerns about a ..."
