I have bought puts on this with my real money. In my opinion, the Japanese whaling for meat is far more ethical than SeaWorld imprisoning intelligent creatures for life.

I've never shorted a company for ethical reasons, but I will do so with SEAS. Whales are way too intelligent to be confined in tiny shallow pools-- as if they committed the worse crime imaginable. This type of business is just despicable.

I don't agree with it, but the documentary is killing this business. Aside from that, Disney and Universal Studios are giving Sea World more than they can handle for competition.

It's only a matter of time before Seaworld is shut down. Creatures as large, highly intelligent, and social as orcas should not be kept in tiny tanks.

Poor financials, especially far too much debt, make this company too risky in a down economy, especially when it's already the target for activist groups.

See Blackfish. Companies without integrity are a bad bet on the long side. It's an excellent short though.

More US citizens becoming aware the animal abuse at sea world. My heart goes out to the trainers who do love the animals, but keeping a whale in a pool is the worst kind of prison for whale. With time I expect continued protests and the eventual closure of the killer whale shows, which will hurt attendance and investors in sea world.

People refer to disruptive technology or innovation that a company brings to the table when they're bullish on a stock. Blackfish is highly disruptive in a different sense. It's disruptive media & its changing how an entire generation looks at Seaworld. This has the potential to be catastrophic for SEAS in so many ways.

Too much debt, lack of growth, and facing bad publicity in its core park businesses as it lowers prices while attendance falls. Efforts to diversify into media entertainment and consumer products should help, but I just can't see how this beats the market over the long haul going forward.

SeaWorld Entertainment owns 11 theme parks under the following brands:

SeaWorld (Orlando, San Antonio, San Diego)
Busch Gardens (Tampa)
Aquatica (Orlando, San Antonio, San Diego)
Sesame Place (Pennsylvania)
Discovery Cove
Adventure Island
Also in November, SeaWorld acquired Knott's Soak City which will be rename Aquatica San Diego

Theme Parks make money and as the economy starts to recover and people get more jobs the will take there children on vacations this stock will only go up

places like SeaWorld will still draw people/revenues regardless of the economy. i.e. "Disney"
