  • Janney Montgomery Scott analysts commented, "SEAS will report 4Q16 results on February 28. We believe sentiment remains bearish, with many investors skeptical of our upgrade this past December. While we are not making a specific call on 4Q16, we think it's a positive that pricing has increased, San Diego lease payments are up, and Brazil travel trends to Orlando have improved. December indicators for Orlando tourism were soft, but we think SeaWorld can offset the weakness. Our FV is $24, which is 9.5x our 2017 EBITDA." (2/21/2017)
