Royal Caribbean has very high historical volatility over the last 90 days
The company has 23.85 B in debt with debt to equity (D/E) ratio of 7.02, demonstrating that the company may be unable to create cash to meet all of its financial commitments. Royal Caribbean Cruises has a current ratio of 0.29, suggesting that it has not enough short term capital to pay financial commitments when the payables are due. Debt can assist Royal Caribbean until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Royal Caribbean's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Royal Caribbean Cruises sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Royal to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Royal Caribbean's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.

Royal Caribbean Greeks

Most traded equities are subject to two types of risk - systematic (i.e., market) and unsystematic (i.e., nonmarket or company-specific) risk. Unsystematic risk is the risk that events specific to Royal Caribbean or Consumer Cyclical sector will adversely affect the stock's price. This type of risk can be diversified away by owning several different stocks in different industries whose stock prices have shown a small correlation to each other. On the other hand, systematic risk is the risk that Royal Caribbean's price will be affected by overall stock market movements and cannot be diversified away. So, no matter how many positions you have, you cannot eliminate market risk. However, you can measure a Royal stock's historical response to market movements and buy it if you are comfortable with its volatility direction. Beta and standard deviation are two commonly used measures to help you make the right decision.

Royal Caribbean Volatility Alert

Royal Caribbean Cruises exhibits above-average semi-deviation for your current time horizon. We encourage investors to investigate Royal Caribbean Cruises individually to make sure intended market timing strategies and available technical indicators are consistent with their estimates about Royal Caribbean future systematic risk. Understanding different market volatility trends often help investors to time the market. Properly using volatility indicators enable traders to measure Royal Caribbean's stock risk against market volatility during both bullish and bearish trends. The higher level of volatility that comes with bear markets can directly impact Royal Caribbean's stock price while adding stress to investors as they watch their shares' value plummet. This usually forces investors to rebalance their portfolios by buying different stocks as prices fall.

Royal Caribbean Implied Volatility

Royal Caribbean's implied volatility exposes the market's sentiment of Royal Caribbean Cruises stock's possible movements over time. However, it does not forecast the overall direction of its price. In a nutshell, if Royal Caribbean's implied volatility is high, the market thinks the stock has potential for high price swings in either direction. On the other hand, the low implied volatility suggests that Royal Caribbean stock will not fluctuate a lot when Royal Caribbean's options are near their expiration.

Is Royal Caribbean's industry expected to grow? Or is there an opportunity to expand the business' product line in the future? Factors like these will boost the valuation of Royal Caribbean. If investors know Royal will grow in the future, the company's valuation will be higher. The financial industry is built on trying to define current growth potential and future valuation accurately. All the valuation information about Royal Caribbean listed above have to be considered, but the key to understanding future value is determining which factors weigh more heavily than others.
The market value of Royal Caribbean Cruises is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Royal that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Royal Caribbean's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Royal Caribbean's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Royal Caribbean's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Royal Caribbean's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between Royal Caribbean's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Royal Caribbean value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Royal Caribbean's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
