Alan Marsh CEO of BMS invested another 45k in BMS yesterday. Well he could hardly buy CKN! but a nice vote of confidence in both BMS and CKN especially as he gifted them to the kids (No pressure Dad! - but they had better increase in value!) SJ

Amazed these are not up 100-150p on those results but I guess by a stroke of bad luck they released them at a time when the market was weak. Got to fancy them to go through that 980p with ease as soon as the market firms in general tho imo, especially with that Baltic index firming nicely. CR

Dave - don't worry about BMS - it will catch up. CKN/BMS are like twins - never far apart though we might have to wait for BMS interims late October. Now hold both since recent CKN purchase. GL SJ

Was coming home from holiday yesterday. Unexpectedly strong results are great news. Any forecast updates in? A p/e of only perhaps around 7 in a growth market seems light.

Greece's deficit was down 42% in H1 and 60% in June despite falling GDP, which puts it below a lot of others now. If they can do it, I don't see why the rest can't and most European countrioes have sharp cuts in place. I always said it was overblown by the media. Since when have our politicians and newspaper financial pundits forecast anything right? We have cut deficits back this hard before - from 85-89 and again from 1998-2001 so it is not new. Stockmarkets did very well each time, at least for a couple of years, and shares are arguably cheaper this time because of all the double-dip scaremongering. China has been buying Greek and Spanish debt recently which will help relations greatly, and they have a lot of firepower. The USA hasn't done itself any favours with them letting its hedge funds short everything European, and its own debt was recently downgraded. It needs to look at its own deficits. I think WWIII is being fought in financial markets and the USA is losing as Europe turns to face East

Aleman - I am very confused by the current situation, much of the news seems to point towards a double dip recession whilst other things point to a continuing recovery. My real concern is that the banking sector problems have only been deferred not solved and the whole thing can only really be cleansed by a full blown crash followed by hyperinflation. Some major sovereign debt defaults for example. But that might be months or many years away, who knows? I am certainly in the market double bottom camp though and CKN is one of the shares most exposed to a downturn if there is one. Just as an aside, how can air freight be booming? Who is buying what I wonder? Is it BP sending stuff to the Gulf of Mexico?

http://www.economist.com/blogs/newsbook/2010/07/shipping_rates_slump These ships take around three years to come onstream. Despite the cancellation of some orders the flow of new ships is now in full flow: in the first half of this year the global fleet increased by 23% as new vessels came into service at the rate of 16 a month. There are now 23 such vessels arriving each month, adding to oversupply. Other freight indicators are less negative than the Baltic Dry. Container-shipping rates are holding pretty steady as companies decide to accept a lull in traffic rather than cut rates to stimulate demand. And according to the International Air Transport Association air freight is booming, up by 34% year-on-year in May.

JTCod - I can't understand why CKN is still at 900p with the collapse of the Baltic Dry Index. But container movements hit 6th busiest week ever? Conflicting messages, no idea what's going on I'm afraid but I'm just wondering about opening a short position on CKN. I'm waiting for it to get a sudden sharp move downwards sub-800p first.

I would be interested to hear any thoughts on the sharp drop in the Baltic Dry Index over recent weeks. CKN and BMS are still reporting good business levels. Are we about to see profits warnings in the sector or is this just a blip perhaps? http://investmenttools.com/futures/bdi_baltic_dry_index.htm

RNS Number : 4703O Clarkson PLC 30 June 2010 ? 30 June 2010 Clarkson PLC Pre-Close Trading Update Prior to entering its close period on 30 June 2009, Clarkson PLC the world's leading shipping services group, is today providing the following update on trading. The steady improvement in our trading environment, reported at the time of our Interim Management Statement on 12 May 2010, has continued. Whilst shipping markets are recovering at differing rates, we have been pleased to see further positive signs across a number of our markets. These trends, augmented by the movement in the value of Sterling against the US dollar, mean that trading for the six months to 30 June 2010 is ahead of the Board's expectations.

Current trading Trading across the Group is increasingly robust as the market improves. ACM's global offices are performing well, and the Board looks forward to the integration of Endeavour to further broaden the Group's offering. Despite the challenging period that the sector has experienced, the Group is ideally positioned to capitalise on the upturn in the market. With global oil demand regaining strength, and tanker demand increasing, particularly in the Far East, the prospects for ACM remain strong.

http://www.nrf.com/modules.php?name=News&op=viewlive&sp_id=943 "Virtually all of the ocean carriers now seem to accept that there will not be a relapse into a second-dip recession nor an end to the growth," Hackett Associates founder Ben Hackett said, noting that many shipping companies have recently restored services and capacity that had been cut back. "Not a day goes by without a new announcement of additional services or re-instatement of services that had been withdrawn."
