:| Hi,

Another good reason for the stock being where it's at these days is the perceived ( and now confirmed as real ) family feud in the Pritzker family estate. That family, thru its holdings, has a 17% stock ownership position in RCL.
The internal feud has triggered the usual decision for everybody within the clan to sell off assets, '' everybody gets his/her $$$ and runs''-type reaction. Investors at large are a bit leery of the impact on the overall RCL portfolio should this bickering involving 17% of the portfolio get a bit too nasty. I see where Thomas Pritzker is still on the board...With the AGM taking place on 26th May, rest assured this situation will come up from the floor....
As a shareholder myself....I wish I could afford the trip to Miami for the AGM.....but, nope....long way from Vancouver....

Happy sailings

RCL is still a solid company and giving Arison & Co a run for its money.

Cheers
Claude G
