    • Six Flags (NYSE:SIX) broke ground on its first theme park in China

    • Though retail sales in the U.S. have disappointed across a number of categories this year, the theme park sector has quietly outperformed broad market averages.
    • Lower gas prices in the U.S. and some improvement on the employment front have helped to drive guest spending and traffic at theme parks even as ticket prices were raised. The YTD returns at Six Flags (+27%), Cedar Fair (+17%), SeaWorld Entertainment (+13%) are all much higher than the meager 1% gain in the S&P 500 Index. The theme park segment at Disney (NYSE:DIS) has also been a profit driver, helping to lift the House of Mouse's shares 13% this year.
    • If the scope is widened outside of theme parks a bit - Royal Caribbean (+24%), Carnival (+22%), and Dave & Buster's Entertainment (+54%) are all showing outsized gains this year which could be partially attributed to low gas prices.
    • Consumer-happy stocks: SIX, FUN, SEAS, DIS, RCL, CCL, PLAY.

    • Six Flags (SIX +0.3%), Cedar Fair (FUN -0.9%), Universal, and SeaWorld Entertainment (SEAS -0.1%) are expected to follow Disney's lead in adding extra security to their amusement parks. Metal detectors may become more common.
    • The measures could add some incremental costs to park operations.
    • Sector check: Solid traffic and pricing trends have helped to lift the amusement park stocks this year. Six Flags (+24%), Cedar Fair (+14%), and SeaWorld (+6%) are all ahead of the S&P 500 Index.

    • Credit Suisse updated its list of favorite consumer discretionary stocks after factoring in consumer spending trends.
    • Apparel & Footwear: Acquisitions and a mix shift toward premium products could help lift shares of Hanesbrands (NYSE:HBI), according to the investment firm.
    • Autos & Auto Parts: Magna International (NYSE:MGA) is well-positioned due the trend toward "vehicle globalization."
    • Gaming & Lodging: Six Flags (NYSE:SIX) has an attractive dividend yield and could see pricing gains.
    • Homebuilding & Building Products: Caesarstone (NASDAQ:CSTE) is poised to see  “significant" revenue and EBITDA growth over the next several years.
    • Media, Cable & Satellite: Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) is called a value pick as the underlying business looks under-appreciated if the valuation of HBO is stripped away.
    • Packaged Food: The risk-reward profile on Kellogg Company (NYSE:K) sets it apart from peers.
    • Retail, Broadlines & Department Stores: Consistency continues to reign supreme at Costco (NASDAQ:COST).
    • Retail, Food & Drug: Comp sales are improving at Dollar General (NYSE:DG). An aggressive share repurchase strategy also provides investors a backstop.
    • Retail, Hardlines: Home Depot Inc (NYSE:HD) is tapped to outperform with the right management team in the right business.
    • Restaurants: Perhaps the biggest surprise of the bunch, McDonald's (NYSE:MCD)  is given the nod by CS. Same-store sales improvement is expected.

    • A global travel warning issued by the U.S. Department is impacting several sectors. Hotel stocks are notably weaker, while amusement park stocks are also trailing broad market averages. Airlines are feeling a double whammy from travel demand concerns and a 3% rise in crude oil futures.
    • In some cases the sell-off appears to be an overreaction with little evidence in that travel habits will change dramatically, according to some analysts.
    • Decliners include Hyatt Hotels (H -1.5%), Hilton Worldwide (HLT -1.1%), Marriott International (MAR -1.8%), JetBlue (JBLU -1.7%), Delta Air Lines (DAL -3.3%), American Airlines Group (AAL -2.4%), United Continental (UAL -3.2%), Allegiant Travel (ALGT -5.3%), Spirit Airlines (SAVE -4.1%), Southwest Airlines (LUV -2.7%), Six Flags (SIX -1.0%), Cedar Fair (FUN -1.0%), Disney (DIS -0.9%), and Sabre (SABR -3.9%), Virgin Amerinca (VA -2.5%), Alaska Air Group (ALK -1.5%).
    • Previously: PCLN, EXPE, TRIP sell off after State Department issues travel warning (Nov. 24)

    • Six Flags (NYSE:SIX) is the top pick of Credit Suisse in the theme park sector.
    • The investment firm sees a Q2 earnings beat and thinks management at Six Flags is dedicated to providing long-term value for shareholders.
    • Sector watch: Shares of Disney and Cedar Fair have outperformed Six Flags so far this year and could be played out on valuation for the short-term, while SeaWorld Entertainment is still trying to rebound from a disastrous 2014. CS likes the upside for the core demographic at Six Flags.
