Carnival (CCL) -4.5% AH after warning it expects 2013 EPS of $1.45-$1.65, below prior guidance of $1.80-$2.10 and a consensus of $1.97. The cruise line operator says its net revenue yield will be down 2%-3% in 2013, worse than prior guidance for flat growth, thanks to soft ticket pricing, higher-than-expected trip cancellations, and higher sales/admin costs. It looks as if Hedgeye was right. RCL -1.5% in sympathy. NCLH could also end up falling.
