We haven't quite dropped to the levels of 2020 when I last bought some of these but have decided it's time to add more, especially as the investment managers and various staff and directors bought more recently along with the sizeable 4.1m share buyback announced today. 8.5% yield looks attractive if you expect inflation to fall back later this year.

Looks like a forced seller being cleared today at any price the market will bid. 95 cents? WTF!

The GBP is strong and the share price is weak - so I've added a few more. Paid slightly less than 1.11 at USD1.23 to the GBP. That's a touch under 90p in real money.

Share buyback programme continuing at a steady pace - too steady, perhaps. They are buying back at an even rate of 100,000 shares per day. My best guess is that they are helping out a shareholder who needs to sell a large quantity but without dumping them on the market in one go and trashing the share price. The shares will not make any progress whatsoever until the seller is cleared. What we are seeing is the agreed price. Could be a good time to add / buy.

The improved NAV predicted a year ago in my post 19 above has certainly come to pass. Good to see Tufton capitalising on strong container ship values with a couple of disposals this month with realised IRR of 31% and 47% with proceeds being recycled into vessels with excellent yields. With the planned dividend increase in Q3 yield will be a still very attractive 6.6%

Watching SHIP for a while attracted by the positive well-funded narrative and the high yield. Is this an enduring good business or a temporary bubble of demand for certain classes of shipping? I wonder what the downside looks like, too risky to be in my pension portfolio? This is a UK based (and taxed?) company but registered in Guernsey or IoM, priced in dollars ... so er is the dividend recalculated in pence and paid gross of any witholding taxes?

Robust performanc, and strong outlook:

At the end of the financial period, the Company had increased charter cover to c. 2.8 years and strong forecast dividend cover of c.1.5x over the next 12-18 months. I am encouraged by the Company's performance over the financial period and believe the strategy of diversification, strong charter cover and low leverage will enable the Company to grow profitably in the coming years.

Not sure why this has started to fall again in the last few weeks; presumably neither can the company hence today's small share buyback. Recovering demand and falling supply of new shipping capacity has to lead to improved NAV in the future; currently yielding 8.2%

Focusing upon an interesting niche market with potentially an excellent yield !

Earn a steady income from ships

Just before Christmas a Guernsey-based fund called Tufton Oceanic Assets (LSE: SHIP) launched on the London Stock Exchange, marking a real first for London – a chance for investors to make an income by renting out ships. Investors have long been able to invest in shipping giants such as Maersk or Hapag-Lloyd. But these are cyclical trading businesses, rather than ones focused on producing a steady dividend stream. In the UK, it has been possible to invest in a few small ship-owning companies under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), but there were no shipping investment trusts.

This is a pity, because there’s much to like about the market. Like aeroplanes, ships produce a steady stream of rental or lease payments, and the market in shipping rentals is huge and very liquid, with many reliable, creditworthy customers. On the downside, its cyclical nature means the market is prone to bouts of oversupply, with prices collapsing as a result – as they did for the Baltic Dry index (which charts the cost of transporting raw materials) after 2008.

But unlike many other asset-backed markets, grabbing hold of delinquent assets in a slump isn’t hard – repossessions have been going on for hundreds of years, and there is a very liquid market in new rentals for the ship owner. And as with any cyclical market, there’s always the potential for an upturn – indeed, we may be seeing one right now. The Baltic Dry has risen by around 60% over the past five years. The global economy is humming, helped by a strong US and China. Cargo rates have stabilised, and shipyards are relatively less busy – the global order book for new ships is at a 20-year low, and shipyard capacity has shrunk by 16% since 2012.

An established player

Tufton is an established player in the second-hand ship market, managing around $1.5bn across a variety of funds. It tends to target product tankers, bulk-cargo ships and smaller container ships. The vessels themselves might be anything from five- to 20-years old, trading at between 30% and 70% of their new value, while customers charter them for between two and ten years. As with aeroplanes, sale-and-leaseback deals are common – a big operator sells their new ship to a funding vehicle such as Tufton, then leases it from them. This leaves the finance outfit to deal with the hassle of the final residual value, or resale value. This is where the real profits are made – by buying second-hand ships cheaply, and making sure the residual value is as high as possible.

Tufton maintains that now is the right time to buy. Certain types of ship are still quite cheap to buy, but rental rates are rising alongside the economy. This upturn isn’t being swamped (yet) by a sudden spike in new ship construction. Tufton reckons it can pay out 7% per year (5% in the first year), with an overall internal rate of return (a measure of project profitability) – including capital gains – of 12%. Tufton’s existing institutional fund has made a total return of 12.5% since 2015.

The risks are clear (which is why the fund is floated on the specialist market, aimed at institutions and sophisticated investors). Shipping is cyclical and, in a downturn, residual values could plunge, and rental yields dry up. The fund is also dollar-denominated, which introduces currency risk. Yet as part of a diversified portfolio, this is an excellent source of alternative income, with real asset backing and steady income streams.
