SeaWorld and Cracker Barrel have been highlighted as Zacks Bull and Bear of the Day

For Immediate Release

Chicago, IL – April 28, 2022 – Zacks Equity Research shares SeaWorld SEAS as the Bull of the Day and Cracker Barrel CBRL as the Bear of the Day. In addition, Zacks Equity Research provides analysis on Amazon AMZN, Jabil JBL and Broadcom AVGO.

Here is a synopsis of all five stocks:

Bull of the Day:

SeaWorld, a leading aquatic-based theme park and entertainment company, is coming out of the pandemic downturn with a vengeance. SEAS has soared 850% out of the ashes of its pandemic lows and is now trading over 90% above its pre-pandemic levels with more room to run.

I originally pitched SEAS as my bull of the day in late August of last year when the stock was trading at less than $50 a share (over 40% returns since). Nevertheless, this stock’s recent ability to buck the broader market’s declines leads me to conclude that SEAS’s 25-month bullish uptrend is far from over as the US economy finally emerges from the medically induced recession mask-free.

SeaWorld proved its operational superiority in the amusement park space this past year, demonstrating an unparalleled return to profitability with record annual results as in 2021 (something no other travel & leisure business can claim).

The awe-inspiring rally SEAS exhibited from its pandemic lows can be attributed to the company’s savvy leadership team, led by Marc Swanson, who has captured more revenue (& market share) from excitement-seeking customers than any of its peers, and yet the stock still trades at a relative valuation discount.

Analysts have become more bullish on SEAS than I ever thought was possible, with many expecting its upcoming earnings report (May 5th) to be a catalyst for this leading travel & leisure stock’s ostensibly inhibited price.

Analysts have cited that consensus expectations for SeaWorld’s Q1 earnings underestimate foot traffic and in-park spending, which is driving aggressive upward EPS revisions, propelling SEAS into a Zacks #1 (Strong Buy).
