I think it’s quite an understatement to say the hotel and leisure industry has felt the punch of a volatile economy over the past 12 months. The recent Carnival (NYSE:CCL) cruise ship tragedy of the Costa Concordia doesn’t help either. These five leisurely stocks were on my sell list last month, and they’re not coming off any time soon.
