March 2015: Royal Caribbean Cruises (Stock to Study), Freeport-McMoRan (Undervalued)The Editorial Advisory and Securities Review Committee of BetterInvesting Magazine today announced Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE: RCL) as its March 2015 "Stock to Study" and Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE: FCX) as its March 2015 "Undervalued Stock" for investors' informational and educational use.
"The committee chose Royal Caribbean because the company is one of two dominant players in an industry that should greatly benefit from lower oil prices, assuming they remain at historically low levels," said Adam Ritt, editor of BetterInvesting Magazine. "For the Undervalued selection, the committee cited Freeport-McMoRan's high dividend yield, which currently stands at more than 5 percent, and recent company actions to bolster the safety of the dividend."
