    We now have the quarterly updates for all five of the country’s leading theme park and regional amusement park operators, and it’s safe to say the first three months of 2018 blew out the same three-month period of 2017.

    SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) appears to be the only operator that’s still fumbling away the telltale travel season in Florida. The record-setting river-rafting attraction has been pitched as a summertime opening for SeaWorld Orlando since it was announced last year, but construction appears nowhere close to being completed in time to soak the first wave of summer visitors.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    June got off to a dicey start. Disney(NYSE:DIS), Universal Orlando parent Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), and SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) were particularly aggressive with June promotions in an effort to goose the quarter’s results, a strong indication that attendance levels weren’t up to snuff in the early going. Disney lifted most of the month’s blackout dates for its cheaper annual pass plans. Universal Orlando offered Florida residents a deal to get two tickets for the price of one. SeaWorld Orlando countered with free beer. However, with new rides and experiences available as the heavy July crowds come pouring in it seems as if Central Florida’s theme park landscape is finally ready for its closeup.

The folks at Bespoke Investment Group note that its “Death By Amazon” index, which includesBest Buy (BBY), Barnes & Noble (BKS), Wal-Mart Stores (WMT), and Macy’s (M), among other traditional retailers that have been hurt by Amazon.com’s (AMZN) dominance, has been outperforming since Donald Trump’s election victory:

Photo: Sean Gallup/Getty Images

On the following pages, we update the performance figures for the Bespoke Death By Amazon Indices. Until the period just before the Presidential Election, the Death By Amazon index was underperforming, down 4.6% YTD versus an S&P 1500 up 5% and Amazon up over 16%. Since election day, its been the complete opposite. Amazon has shed over 6% while the Death By Amazon index has rallied almost 9%! Retail has been one of the better performers over the last week. The broad thesis seems to be that infrastructure spending and tax cuts could boost spending from consumers. For Amazon, meanwhile, its been part of a broad decline thats seen the large-cap tech leadership of the Obama era crushed in the first few days since Trump was elected. The performance advantage is still very large for Amazon.
