The price of Cedar Fair (FUN) seem to follow the Six Flags (SIX), but in a slower pace.
It's easy to notice, that the value of fundamental indicators for those companies are higher than the average. ROE for both stocks exceeds 45 percent and the P/E is higher than 20. P/BV for Cedar Fair equals 134, for Six Flags 11.68.
One month ago, Zacks Equity Research revealed, that the 50-day SMA broke out below the 200-day SMA for both stocks (the death cross). On the one hand, investors can expect on a basis of death cross and the fundamental ratios, that the bearish market has just started. On the other hand the companies are reporting good financial results. The situation seems to be interesting.
