Carnival rallied on a better-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings report. Earnings rose 29% as the cruise company benefited from improving demand. The stock rose 4.3% on heavy volume, closing at $45.18.

New highs are always bullish, but considering the economy is only just starting to get back on its feet, there could be a great deal of continued good earnings results in future months.

The short-term target for this advance is $47.95. If this level is surpassed, traders can look for Carnival shares to reach as high as $52.71 over the coming months.
