    Tanker rates surprisingly resilient. One reason: negative vessel supply effect of drawdown of intentional floating storage is (so far) largely being offset by new unintentional floating storage due to escalating China congestion.

    Most floating storage has yet to be unloaded while delays in China are mounting.

    No one should be surprised by this, but narrative emerging from US-listed ocean shipping CEOs is that coronavirus downside is inherently finite, ergo market will overshoot to upside when coast is clear.

    Good morning fellow shipping magnates. Another good day for dry bulkers. Capesize index +9% to $33k a day. Brazil China route +9% to $33k a day. July FFA +5% to $43k a day
    August FFA +3% to $43k a day.

    $SHIP is the only USA listed pure Capesize play. Now SHIP owns 16 vessels up by 5 from Q1.

    Quick check what is the short volume ratio
    $SHIP 20.34
    $EGLE 13.04
    $DSX 13.33
    $SBLK 10.23
    $GNK 8.05
    $GOGL 6.40

    SHIP has the highest short volume and the higher the volume the more likely for the price to move violently up due to short sellers scrambling to cover their losing positions once the price goes higher (feedback loop).... and since we are seeing very strong shipping rates the stocks are well positioned to go higher. Also there is more and more interest in shipping. Recently M. Burry (Big Short 2008), George Soros and others invested in shipping.

    Feel free to share, copy paste on other channels.

    Dry bulk is the place to be.

    Floating storage is far from dead in the water. Still building, should still be building into at least next month, then 6-12 months to unwind and get all tankers back to regular trading.

    Earlier this year, CEO of $FRO bet analyst that VLCC tanker rates would not fall back to $20,000-30,000/day by end-3Q. If CEO loses, he promises to walk 300 miles between Bergen and Oslo. It increasingly looks like he may need a new pair of Nikes.

    Crude/product tankers stocks stole the show (rightfully so) but LPG shipping could be interesting going forward for those rolling dice on strong COVID rebound: high spot exposure + volatile spot rates + no floating storage destocking hurdle + demand levered to recovery.

    Just a few things:

    On July 21, 2020 , Ardmore agreed to acquire a 50,093 Dwt, 2010 Japanese-built MR product tanker for a purchase price of $16.7 million.

    The Company's average number of owned vessels decreased to 25.0 for the three months ended June 30, 2020

    Vessels and vessel equipment, net 645,937,320

    Total stockholders' equity 345,355,948

    Weighted average number of shares outstanding, diluted 33,356,978

    Current Book Value = $345,355,948 / 33,356,978 shares = $10.35 per share

    However, 25 vessels at $16.7 million = $417.5 million, which is $228.4 million less than the $645.9 million balance sheet value for the vessels.

    Subtracting this $228.4 million from the 345.4 million stockholder equity equals $117 million.

    So a revised book value would be $117 million / 33.4 million shares = $3.50 per share or 2/3 less than the $10.35.

    COVID-19 optimism = higher crude price = lower contango = floating storage now uneconomical = tanker stocks left out of stock rally. Tanker pitch now shifting way from floating storage toward hope of fast destocking + return to transport fundamentals.

    Total Shareholder equity for ASC, basically their cash +Fleet valuation minus liabilities, is per their last quarter statement $345M.

    They have 33M shares outstanding.

    So, the effective NAV is above $10/sh, implying ASC trades today at 1/2 its liquidation value.

    Spot rates for Product Tankers have risen almost 10% over the last few weeks, and are back to Nov 2018 levels. Q42018 and Q12019 should therefore not adversely impact shareholder equity, as the company may actually show a small profit.

    2H2019 rates will support stronger charter rates, and drive earnings.

    ASC has no capital expenditure commitments, but is believed in the hunt for modern MRs.

    All their vessels are Eco-Design, and will operate efficiently under IMO2020 rules, w/o scrubber needs.

    While shares may not return to NAV soon, a drift to 80% NAV brings shares to $8, and that could occur by end of 2019 as the strengthened charter rates become established.
