Royal Caribbean (RCL) has recently been on Zacks.com's list of the most searched stocks. Therefore, you might want to consider some of the key factors that could influence the stock's performance in the near future.Over the past month, shares of this cruise operator have returned -0.9%, compared to the Zacks S&P 500 composite's -0.9% change. During this period, the Zacks Leisure and Recreation Services industry, which Royal Caribbean falls in, has lost 1.7%. The key question now is: What could be the stock's future direction?Although media reports or rumors about a significant change in a company's business prospects usually cause its stock to trend and lead to an immediate price change, there are always certain fundamental factors that ultimately drive the buy-and-hold decision.Earnings Estimate RevisionsHere at Zacks, we prioritize appraising the change in the projection of a company's future earnings over anything else. That's because we believe the present value of its future stream of earnings is what determines the fair value for its stock.We essentially look at how sell-side analysts covering the stock are revising their earnings estimates to reflect the impact of the latest business trends. And if earnings estimates go up for a company, the fair value for its stock goes up. A higher fair value than the current market price drives investors' interest in buying the stock, leading to its price moving higher. This is why empirical research shows a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements.Royal Caribbean is expected to post earnings of $1.30 per share for the current quarter, representing a year-over-year change of +665.2%. Over the last 30 days, the Zacks Consensus Estimate remained unchanged.For the current fiscal year, the consensus earnings estimate of $10.01 points to a change of +47.9% from the prior year. Over the last 30 days, this estimate has changed -0.7%.For the next fiscal year, the consensus earnings estimate of $11.74 indicates a change of +17.3% from what Royal Caribbean is expected to report a year ago. Over the past month, the estimate has changed +0.1%.With an impressive externally audited track record, our proprietary stock rating tool -- the Zacks Rank -- is a more conclusive indicator of a stock's near-term price performance, as it effectively harnesses the power of earnings estimate revisions. The size of the recent change in the consensus estimate, along with three other factors related to earnings estimates, has resulted in a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) for Royal Caribbean.The chart below shows the evolution of the company's forward 12-month consensus EPS estimate:12 Month EPSProjected Revenue GrowthWhile earnings growth is arguably the most superior indicator of a company's financial health, nothing happens as such if a business isn't able to grow its revenues. After all, it's nearly impossible for a company to increase its earnings for an extended period without increasing its revenues. So, it's important to know a company's potential revenue growth.In the case of Royal Caribbean, the consensus sales estimate of $3.64 billion for the current quarter points to a year-over-year change of +26.3%. The $15.94 billion and $17.27 billion estimates for the current and next fiscal years indicate changes of +14.7% and +8.3%, respectively.Last Reported Results and Surprise HistoryRoyal Caribbean reported revenues of $3.33 billion in the last reported quarter, representing a year-over-year change of +27.9%. EPS of $1.25 for the same period compares with -$1.12 a year ago.Compared to the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $3.38 billion, the reported revenues represent a surprise of -1.34%. The EPS surprise was +10.62%.The company beat consensus EPS estimates in each of the trailing four quarters. The company topped consensus revenue estimates three times over this period.ValuationWithout considering a stock's valuation, no investment decision can be efficient. In predicting a stock's future price performance, it's crucial to determine whether its current price correctly reflects the intrinsic value of the underlying business and the company's growth prospects.While comparing the current values of a company's valuation multiples, such as price-to-earnings (P/E), price-to-sales (P/S) and price-to-cash flow (P/CF), with its own historical values helps determine whether its stock is fairly valued, overvalued, or undervalued, comparing the company relative to its peers on these parameters gives a good sense of the reasonability of the stock's price.The Zacks Value Style Score (part of the Zacks Style Scores system), which pays close attention to both traditional and unconventional valuation metrics to grade stocks from A to F (an An is better than a B; a B is better than a C; and so on), is pretty helpful in identifying whether a stock is overvalued, rightly valued, or temporarily undervalued.Royal Caribbean is graded A on this front, indicating that it is trading at a discount to its peers.

However, its Zacks Rank #2 does suggest that it may outperform the broader market in the near term.Infrastructure Stock Boom to Sweep America A massive push to rebuild the crumbling U.S. infrastructure will soon be underway.
