'I think oil is going lower (and maybe much lower -- can you say $1-a-gallon gas?) in the near term. As I have written about before, oil is now in the steepest contango on record. That means oil is cheap today and more expensive in a few months. That is not normal. Oil is bidding for storage. You can make 20-25% on your money in a few months if you can buy oil and find somewhere to store it. At least 25 supertankers have been leased to store oil, and sources say another ten are being bid for. It remains to be seen if OPEC can really cut enough to make a difference in the near term'. from mauldin

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=auDNDfdmNfzE&refer=home Investment Banks Seek Supertankers for Contango Trade (Update1) Email | Print | A A A By Alaric Nightingale Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Investment banks want to hire supertankers to store crude oil at sea, seeking to profit as futures contracts get more expensive later in the year, according to Frontline Ltd., the largest owner of the ships. A few banks are asking about Frontline's vessels, Jens Martin Jensen, the Singapore-based interim chief executive officer of its management unit, said by phone today. The banks, which tend not to hire ocean-going tankers, are seeking to profit from a market situation called contango where futures prices are higher than the cost of immediate supplies. A purchaser could buy oil now, keep it for months at sea and fetch better prices by selling oil futures that are higher than the spot price. "There's a window of opportunity right now and it could last some time," said Sverre Bjorn Svenning, a director at Fearnleys A/S, an Oslo-based shipbroker and consultant. Shipping costs could triple as a result and eventually bring an end to the trade, he said. The companies exclude Citigroup Inc., Jensen said, declining to identify them. Its Phibro LLC commodities trading unit has the 1 million-barrel Ice Transporter stationed off northern Scotland, according to people familiar with the matter. Hedge funds aren't trying to conclude such deals, Jensen said. 'Significant Returns' Morgan Stanley owns half of Heidmar Inc., a company that operates oil tankers on behalf of groups of owners. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. trades commodities through J. Aron & Co. Barclays Capital noted the potential for profit as early as November, saying in a report that traders could make "significant returns" by storing oil and copper. Heidmar hasn't had demand for its tankers to store oil, probably because the vessels aren't the largest supertankers that presently make the trade attractive, Tim Brennan, the company's chief executive, based in Norwalk, Connecticut, said by phone yesterday. The pricing structure has been caused by excess near-term oil supply as demand slows, and speculation that output cuts by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries will reduce the glut later this year. The cost of storing on supertankers works out at about 80 to 90 cents a barrel each month, Denis Petropoulos, head of tankers at Braemar Shipping Services Plc, the world's second-largest publicly traded shipbroker, said Jan. 7. Hoarding at Sea West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures for March delivery are trading at $45.98 a barrel, about $4.78 more than the February contract. Frontline's Jensen said Jan. 7 that oil traders wanted as many as 10 very large crude carriers, or VLCCs, to hoard oil for between three and nine months. That would take the amount being kept at sea to the equivalent of almost five days of European Union demand. Iran, OPEC's second-largest member after Saudi Arabia, idled as many as 15 of its biggest ships in May to store crude. That contributed to three consecutive months of higher rental rates for ships. Commodities prices fell the most in five decades last year, with crude dropping more than $100 from the peak of $147.27 a barrel in July, as simultaneous recessions hit the U.S., Europe and Japan. Oil demand in 2008 fell for the first time since 1983, according to the Paris-based International Energy Agency.

well up from a low of 650ish anyway 3800! Thanks for the link much appreciated as can watch and judge future purchases linked to this as well. As CR states however the fundamentals on both CKN/BMS IMO are strong and any sign however small of economic contraction slowing and an improvement in sentiment and these IMO will move sharply. Lets see....relative strength is obviously good judging from chart. Have good weekends

Baltic Capesize is rising - usually a lead indicator to dray bulk pick up. Also what about all these tankers being hired in the middle east just to store oil? That must be adding business to CKN and BMS imo. Chart says you've missed the bottom here but not missed the bulk of the forthcoming rise - which should be pretty steep when it goes through 440p CR

Looks to be a nice bowl forming in the CKN share price chart but the potential cup and handle nearly completed by BMS is a delight to see, especially if and when the share price reaches 300. "Cup and handle" finest chart bull signal of all, but the completion of chart patterns are best not anticipated by jumping the gun !

At the interims CKN said they had settled a dispite with a Russian Shipping co for £21m. "Settlement of claims with Novoship and Sovcomflot leading to a previously announced exceptional cost of GBP21.0m" I presume that will come off the cash balance that the co had at the interims. They had net funds of £32m at the inteims so that leaves £11m net cash. They paid 16p divi at H1, 44p is the tear's divi forecast so that means aboyt 28-29p final divi. Final divi goes xd in May. So over 17 months you get around 70p in yield. 132p earnings expected - even if that fell to 100p this year the divi is well covered. So a PE of 4 even if earnings fell to £1 and around 18% yield over 15 months. That's a lot of earnings per share and total return if you believe 6 months to a year out economies will have improved. BMS looks even cheaper imo and I struggle to remember when BMS was cheaper than CKN so might be worth splitting the investment across the two - directors have been strong buyers at BMS. CR

Probably one of my best ever investments - owned these several times since 2000 - multi-bagged them lots of times - been a real star. Chart starting to turn imo - will be going very long here as they bounce, great well run co and prone to getting very oversold in markets like this - I think we'll have a positive trading statement soon and you just won't be able to buy for the dust. 11% yield, PE under 4, net cash of £32m at the interims - even if a big chunk of that goes in settling with the Ruskies which is now settled they still have £10m+ net cash. Looks a screaming buy to me. CR

Took a wedge of these today, managed to get inside the silly spread, not calling a bottom or anything rash like that, just seemed the right thing to do. Regards all, good luck, happy xmas or similar.

FT today - "One of the world's key shipping markets has begun to recover from a slump, with a revival in Chinese demand for iron ore and coal pushing some average charter prices up almost threefold in the past week. The revival in prices, after a disastrous six months for the industry in which charter rates fell nearly 99 per cent for the largest vessels, could encourage shipowners to bring mothballed vessels back into service." This is a class act - I rode it from £2.50 to £10 and think its time to get back in now

From Coxe's Q&A: "Ted spread down through 150" ============ The iron ore companies are renegotiating with China in particular what the prices will be and once they've got a new pricing structure although China's steel prices are down, China is continuing with its infrastructure development. The Chinese economy is not collapsing and they still have got to carry forward their 30 year plan of having 200 cities of more than a million population to permit the migration which will be the greatest migration in history of people from small farming units of one and two hectares into the city because one and two hectare farms do not produce the extra food that's needed to support urban populations. So the Chinese will not abandon that strategy. They've reduced their interest rates and reserve requirements three times in a short space of time. This is the fastest response from China on record. Therefore at some point what you're going to be able to do is see cargos flowing again. The other thing is that because of the banking crisis you couldn't get bankers willing to put up the money for the trade credits needed that you could ship it and you'd know you'd get paid in a bank draft at the other end. The banking system had just basically shut its doors. So the reliquification of the global banking system which will be virtually complete once we've got the Ted spread down through 150. My prediction is that once the Ted spread is down there you're going to see a sharp leap in the Baltic Dry Index. The prospect that you were going to load up a ship and send it out and you weren't going to be paid at the other end was enough that you weren't going to bother chartering a ship to do anything. /more: http://freefilehosting.net/download/41ggk
