Royal Caribbean earnings call will NOT sink the company

3 weeks ago by Jared Russo in Earnings
RCL CEO & Chairman Richard D. Fain

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.'s ($NYSE:RCL) is bouncing back from the devastating damage caused by Hurricane Dorian. Analysts tracked by Zacks Investment Research are expecting EPS $4.31 when the cruise line reports earnings October 30. It was only a few weeks ago that Dorian wrecked havoc across the Caribbean, and a number of cruise liners had to adjust to the storm. Let's dive into the numbers.


Job listings are up 90% since August 15, so if you need a job, and you love to sail the seas, Royal Caribbean may have an opportunity for you. The company employs upwards of 80,000 people at any given time, but that can fluctuate. Our LinkedIn data (not shown here) accounts for roughly 5,000 jobs, which are mostly corporate. That number increases about a thousand a year.

Likewise, social media followers and likes are up. Twitter added 83% over the last four years, and Facebook likes are up 59% in the same amount of time.

About the Data: 

Thinknum tracks companies using the information they post online - jobs, social and web traffic, product sales and app ratings - and creates data sets that measure factors like hiring, revenue and foot traffic. Data sets may not be fully comprehensive (they only account for what is available on the web), but they can be used to gauge performance factors like staffing and sales.
