The automated Quantcha Trade Ideas Service has detected a promising Long Iron Condor trade opportunity for CARNIVAL (CCL) for the 20-Apr-2018 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

Based on an analysis of the options available for CCL expiring on 20-Apr-2018, there is a 42.79% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $61.38-$75.02 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 59.52%.

Price target: Zacks Research has updated their six-month price target for CCL to $68.20. This price target is a consensus price created from the price targets published by 11 participating analysts whose targets ranged from $56.00 to $80.00.

Mean recommendation: Zacks normalizes analyst recommendations to a 1-5 scale where 1 indicates a strong buy. Their mean recommendation for CCL has been updated to 1.95, which indicates a buy consensus from analysts. Sentiment has moved from 2.09 to 2.09 to 1.95 over the past three months.
