What are analysts saying about Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Norwegian Cruise Line is a cruise line operator. It offers cruise itineraries in various locations, including destinations in the Caribbean, Bermuda, the Bahamas, Mexico, Alaska, Europe, Hawaii, New England, Central America, North Africa, and Scandinavia. The company markets its services primarily through retail/travel agents. Norwegian Cruise Line is headquartered in Miami, Florida. " (8/16/2017)
- 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "As expected, management's formal 2017 guidance and forward-looking business commentary, as articulated on today's call, painted two distinctly different pictures. Investors clearly preferred to draw their own conclusions from the latter, as evidenced by the surge in NCLH's share price over the duration of the call. In squaring the two outlooks, we sense guidance reflects management's best estimates as it relates to the entirety of business on the books for 2017 at this point, whereas the commentary focused heavily on the trends witnessed over the past eight weeks. Clearly, provided the business remains on current trend, there appears to be considerable upside to current guidance, particularly with respect to the summer 2017 European program." (2/23/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NASDAQ:NCLH) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
