Carnival Corporation & plc, the world’s largest cruise shipping group, is forecast to re[ort earnings per share (EPS) of $1.62 for the third quarter of its financial year. The company, which is listed in London and New York, will publish its third quarter figures at 3pm UK time.
Cruise industry analysts’ earnings forecasts, posted on the company’s website, range from $1.58 to $1.65. In the corresponding quarter last year, Carnival recorded EPS of $1.62. However, some observers note that a weak Mediterranean business, hampered by unrest in the region, may have hurt the company’s performance this time.
