Oil Tanker Stocks are going to skyrocket over the coming weeks. Where they have been making 30,000 to 40,000 per day they are now making 300,000 to 400,000. In 2009 some of these stocks went 5X and more in just a couple days. This scenario is far more beneficial for tankers than it was then, Tanker revenue are going to be astronomical.

room temperature iq investment.
there are several factors that can actually cause tanker stocks to dump:

how much oil producers have on hand?
can they easily cut supply to avoid paying exorbitant tanker fees?
if they can cut supply, will they?
which of these tanker companies actually service WTI crude companies that have a surplus of oil?

and finally - target price to sell (depends on current market cap of tanker companies)

because, due to greedy arabs, opec with their head up their arse, worldwide pandemics etc - there is a glut of oil. This oil has to be stored somewhere. Renting a tanker just to fill and store it with oil - which maybe CANNOT be delvered as onland storage still full - usually cost $35k per day. It is currently costing $350k per day. anons point being, someone is making 10 times as much profit, per tanker, per day - and he wants a piece. The question being, how quick oil producers adapt, stop pumping moar! oil and generally adjust to reality. Because paying $350k per tanker per day to store oil that sells for -$30 a barrel - its not a long-term winning strategy

Why don't they do this? I mean I was reading about how the old rigs they can't even shut down or they wouldn't be able to start them again, so if it just takes a few guys to run the rig, why not just keep it running but burn it instead of paying someone to take oil?

Timmy, can you point out on the chart where the big bad man touched you and tanker stocks went 5x?

I think all the tankers are full, filled up on contracts they signed where they agreed to rent it out at 40k a day.
The market is now paying 300 to 400k for that one tanker that might become available tomorrow.

The majority of tankers are now on the seas getting paid 30-40k as per they contract that they signed a month ago.
What are typical contract periods for tankers?

Also talking my book here but you can also consider DHT as another tanker stock. They're a VLCC (very large crude carrier) pure play as thats all their fleet contains. Main thing that I like about them is that they've got about 20% of their fleet locked into 1Y+ long contracts at current rates, which is essentially pure unrealised revenue. Rest of their ships are in short term contracts to benefit from the increasing daily rates, but the longterm contracts drop their charter breakeven rate from ~7500/day to ~2500/day. They'll have earnings released early May and then August.

I am Greek and my family is in the shipping industry (Cargo). I can tell there is somewhat truth to this.

$400k / pdpr charter is unheard of, but 300k/pdpr for VLCC and ULCC is not impossible.

Some VLCC (and ULCC) tankers are currently used for storage. But only a few of the +-750 VLCC are available for storage right now.

Spot charter rates are very volatile, but currently for a 6-month time charter a rate of 120-180k USD seems possible.

Too much uncertainty, oil production may be lowered or demand my rise again sooner than expect, in both scenarios rates can easily go back to $45k. In all honestly, most VLCC's are already on a current charter and not available to be chartered at the current spot rate.

Nonetheless most shipping stocks had their bull run already in January so you are late to the party.

>> No.18620312

super contango provides incentives for traders to buy super cheap front month contracts, take delivery, store the crude, and contract to sell in later months trading at much higher prices. The magnitude of the contango means traders will be willing/able to pay very high charter rates for tankers (which are likely the last bastion of oil storage available at this point) to hold the oil until delivery under the later contracts at higher prices

I dont think oil supply will be solved anytime soon. All this needs to do is go on for another month or so for most of these companies to secure incredibly lucrative rates on many ships.

Yeah, it's a short play, timing is key, and I don't mind giving you advice, I'm holding FRO, TNK, TK, and STNG, if you throw more money at my positions it can only help me.

Depending on the contracts the tanker companies strike strike, they will make solid money on rents, and will make money again on profit sharing when they unload. Once that happens, you'll see a quick spike but the play will be over and they'll dive like a goddamned stuka (they're the most expensive form of storage and will be emptied first) and leave a lot of sheep holding bags. With algos aggravating the problem, this will happen extremely quickly; if they don't do the same thing next month you may not have time to react if you don't have the buffer of the last two months built in

Many tanker companies are trading on their yearly highs now, so the sure thing is over, you missed that boat (no pun intended). If you want to get in now, you're essentially betting on futures tanking for at least a few months. I'd say it's a pretty good bet, but it's not without significant risk. A war, a therapy, a vaccine, further production cuts, or all of the above in some form or another could put oil right back on track, a lot can happen in the weeks these deals need to mature.

If you want hop in and take risk, watch June futures, trading closes in the third week of May. If all goes steady, sit back and enjoy your gains. However, if Brent futures don't shit the bed again approaching the last day of trading, watch your tankers like a hawk and dump them the MOMENT they stall.

Tankers skyrocketed in the past 2 days but today they're into the dumpster, pump and dump style. What's up with that?

>> No.18621146


Yes, I think this period is beneficial for the oil tanker industry because unlikely that charters will not go back under operating costs and occupation rate is up too.

On average we estimate $40k as break even for VLCC's so charter signed at current rates are extremely lucrative. But they have been since the beginning of March.

Average VLCC fixtures per week as of 1 jan 2020 is just under 50, In second week of march there was a surge of 92 fixtures. Currently we almost have 700 VLCC fixtures in 2020, though last week there were only 22 VLCC charters. Spot prices surged because there is simply not enough supply of VLCCs.

As for Storage, ‘vintage’ VLCCs are now sold as storage units. While there are only few new VLCC transaction, cargo and bulk sales are pretty much non-existentt. Moreover, storage on land may be cheaper, if this is a long-term situation then rates will eventually drop.

In sum, oil production surplus will keep charter rates high but the tanker industry is volatile so it can go back to break-even level as fast as it went up. Although it is unlikely to see this happening any time soon. Other things to keep in consideration are the current occupation rate of active VLCC is high, and as fixtures at the current exorbitant charter are on the low side. On the other hand, vintage VLCC are now sold as storage. As rates go up, the profits of storing oil goes down as well.

All in all, I think most tanker stock can see a 10%-15% sustainable increase. Bear in mind, stocks were already high and Greek money made their biggest capital moves in early March. Now it is pretty much breadcrumbs with a high down-side risk. Just be careful with putting money in the shipping market right now.

Specialised maritime consultancy firms provide the market with most data. Keep in Mind there are about 750 active VLCC's there is no online ticker for charter rates.

>> No.18622270


I wouldn't overestimate the profits, as you said yourself most profit will go to cleaning up their balance sheet.

DHT has 27 spot fixtures and 6 time charter; which is a really good set-up in current market conditions. The TCs provide a cash flow buffer while te spot fixtures are greatly benefiting the exorbitant spot rates. So it comes down to one thing: the longer the spot rate is high, the higher the average rate per day and as a result overal profit will increase incrementally as the spot market stays high. Though, we don't know when this will change. You can either go all in at once or play your 'bets' every week depending on the weekly fixtures and spot rate. I expect them to use this back wind to cleanout their balance sheet, and prepare their financials to buy 5 more ships In the coming 3 year. So this may also be reflected in the share price.

DHT is making a killing and there is still room to go higher, 9.10 USD per share is reasonable but the market is risky, especially at the current share price.

DHT is a well managed company; similar to euronav.

Tanker rates themselves move with the oil contango.
Today the oil contango between the june contract and the september contract is 12 dollars.
A VLCC stores a bit above 2 million barrels, let's say 2 to be conservative.
If you buy the 2 million barrels in the june contract now and sell short the september one, you'll have 24 million dollars in your hand.
This is enough to pay 266000/day for 90 days to rent a tanker. Thus the price to actually rent a tanker for 90 days will not be above that but close to that price.
When land storage becomes widely available, a lot of traders will start to make this trade and will push the spread down.
Now as said, normal rates are 40k/day for a VLCC (this is for transportation purposes) or differently put, 2 cents/day/barrel or put yet another way, 60 cents/day/barrel.
Whenever the spread between the current contract and a future contract is bigger than this, traders will want to start bidding on tankers, trying to outbid those that just want tankers for transportation and tanker rates will be higher than normal.
I think we should keep an eye on the spread between the contracts and when these spreads narrow, then this will mean that tankers rate will drop and this MIGHT mean that your tanker stock will drop as well.

However, if say a tanker company is now raking in the cash 5 times as fast as usual and this situation holds for a month or two, these profits might not get priced in by the market in the same timeframe.

>> No.18622900

On top of that there's like 5 billion barrels of oil in storage now.
Unloading that is the equivalent of one extra saudi arabia producing for 1 year and a half.
Off course world storage will never drop to zero but even unloading 1 or 2 billion to return to normal is quite an extra amount.

I think people are underestimating the severity of the situation. This never happened before.
In 2008 oil crashed from 130 to 30 bucks, but it went to 130 because there was almost no oil left in storage (I'm assuming here) and the recession just brought relief to this with a period of weak demand.
Now we went from years of weak demand or oversupply due to the shale oil boom to a period of extreme oversupply.

>> No.18623163


I was actually already holding FRO and TNK and am up about 30%. I was thinking of increasing my shares and holding for 1-3 months as storage continues to fill and maybe some of the contracts on some already-rented VLCCs expires and they can be re-rented at 10x the rate as we're seeing today

the time to buy was March, yes, and some of us did. the question i have is:

FRO and TNK will report earnings in late May, and then again in late August. Is the play to sell around May earnings, or August? Even if we cured coronavirus TODAY and opened up the world TODAY, how long will it take for oil demand to make a comeback? We could still have full storage going into July / August, meaning those companies will be able to report higher revenues coming from the 10x tanker rates they've been able to charge for months. Plus shareholders get dividends, dont forget.

I feel like people in this thread are saying the play was for May, but I'm not so sure. This could be come a 4-month swing trade if the oil glut continues into Q3. Do we want to cash out in May, or keep holding until August for potentially more gains? Oil demand will not bounceback over night

If you are young, you'll first get an master in maritime finance or MBA. Then you will have to look for consultancy firm that provides such services. It is a small world dominated by Greeks, if you are Greek and fluent in English, you have a competitive edge.

The thing is, it is one small network most shipbrokers became shipbrokers simply because they know many ship owners. It is all about knowing the right people.

Working as a shipbroker, means working for a consultancy firm. Unless you have the capital and connections to start your own firm.

The ICS qualification is very good introductory program and highly appreciated by the shipping industry in Europe. If you have worked in the financial or consultancy sector this can be a useful steppingstone to the shipping industry.
If you have no professional experience related to finance, law, consultancy, shipping, ... this qualification has its limited use. You are better of getting a master in (shipping) finance or an LLM in finance or Maritime law. Those two are what most consultancy firms are looking for. Also working in Asia, UK/US degrees are highly valued because this is important for a firm's imago.
So, if you have prior professional experience then do the ICS exam. Other the ICS also offers a 1-year Professional Maritime Programme which is much more valuable. Ideally you have professional experience as a consultant, lawyer, or in finance; do the ICS exam and/or full program.
Where do you life? Ideally you work in Singapore, Shanghai or Hong Kong if you want to cater to the Asians. On the other hand, you can also find work in NY, London, Rotterdam and Antwerp at some selected firms who work want to tap into the Asian market. I genuinely think that your Chinese will be most valued in Europe due to a lack of Chinese speaking consultants.
Finally, why Greek? Greeks own roughly (in)officially 24% of the world’s commercial fleet. Many shipping company are fully owned by one Greek family thus being Greek helps.

Coordination offices only do charters but not provide any other services. Typically smaller vessels are chartered through. They do not have the resources to provide full fledged services to bigger companies. Basically, these kind of companies are the easiest to get into because of the low skill requirement. Basically you will be picking up the phone all day. Although, you are better of working in a full fledged maritiem consultant firm.

Is the ICS exam alone enough? Eventually it will all come down to your ability to sell yourself to a company. Ideally you have some knowledge and qualification, be it the ICS exam or full program. No company would hire someone who doesn't know what they are doing.

Maritime consultancy and finance is serious business, this is not just something you can do without the proper background. Start with the ICS, ask them question about how to start your career in shipping. Shipbroking is quite broad, so you'll have to start somewhere. A firm will hire you and will put you on small account first, probably arrange bunkers or supramax size charters. VCLL and UCLL are high level fixtures, you won't be doing such transactions anytime soon.

Natural gas dipped at the end of last year and I can't see it going back up with oil the way it is.

No you misunderstand. Japan isn't converting infrastructure. They are developing the technology with will make petroleum irrelevant. The only infrastructure that will change will be at oil deposits which will be generating hydrogen and alcohol on much larger scales. Vehicles will shift to hydrogen and alcohol.

They aren't going to be converting anything. They've been working with other countries for years to help produce hydrogen for them. Using electrolysis you can convert closed/unprofitable oil wells into hydrogen and alcohol producers. This drives down the price of hydrogen to a viable fuel source. Then with the materials science that japan has been working on with the west.

Japan is heavily reliant on importing fossil fuels to keep it's large industrial economy ticking over. In a world that is turning increasingly away from fossil fuels. Japan isn't well suited to renewable energy and is going to have to find a way to keep importing chemical energy from somewhere else. And for that they've seen an opportunity in hydrogen, it provides a way to source chemical energy that isn't necessarily made from fossil fuels, is abundant and it puts them at the technological forefront of a potentially massive industry. They're working with Australia to source hydrogen from coal initially, and if successful to then start looking at using renewables in Australia to create Hydrogen for export. Hydrogen could be the way of trading surplus renewable energy from places that can produce an excess of it efficiently to places that can't like Japan, South Korea and other densely populated energy hungry economies.

As far as I am aware hydrogen can be pumped through current natural gas grids fairly easy or at least with relatively minor modifications. The Netherlands is starting to experiment with it as they see the value in becoming a hydrogen hub for NW Europe/Germany.

Tankers are used for moving oil around overseas and exporting/importing.

When it arrives on land, it has to go through pipelines and is also stored in large holding tanks that are much larger than tanker ships (see: >>18617603)

Nustar specializes only in transport, storage, and buy/sell and only has like 1k employees.

Oil companies are operating at a loss because cheap oil prices.

They cant just "stop pumping".

Its like a siphon. Once the flow is going, you cant stop or the suction losses pressure and oil well drys up (oil level falls). Its then a bitch to get it flowing again.

So oil companies are continuing to pump at minimumal levels and they have to put oil somewhere quickly.
Hence..whey they are PAYING people to take oil away.

1 is coming in next week to finish its contract, the other early may.

They are keeping their eyes out for longer term contracts so they will not say that they will always operate 2 in the spot market its just the way it is now.

No, but they will get two lucrative spot contracts (45 days at 200k) in these market conditions (if it holds for two more weeks)

Their current spot contracts were made over a month ago at almost 90k a day.

So even if this bubble deflates again in 6 months they'll have 2 contracts 45 days at 90k, 2 contracts 45 days at 200k, 2 contracts 45 days 90k and 1 contract 180 days at 69k.

It's too late to get in now. You would be buying high. Yes it's going to go higher but by how much is highly questionable.

Rates will stay up through the end of the June contract but after that it's anything goes. Once production goes way up day rates will fall.

Do not buy high. If you aren't in this already it's too late to get in.

Only three carriers, all 18 years old.
I dont think the premium of new vs old matters as much in this age of the oil glut as it does during normal circumstances.

Well, I am not here to give people advice, but I can share my opinion. Mot people in /biz/ gamble with their money and are completely clueless, I am just pointing out that the shipping industry is not just 'free money'. Investing in shipping industry is, and always has been, very risky. Little transparency and highly susceptible to changes in the global economy.

I rest my case: don't invest in shipping if you are not active in the sector yourself.

I checked the company, this is a typical holding company with leveraged subsidiaries combined with a debt push down. Basically you're financing a very risky project.

So they lent money from a bank, then inject capital into a SPV to buy the ship. Now, I can already tell you that a part of the income that goes to the subsidiaries will disappear in the pockets of their 'directors' and 'consultants'.

Furthermore the ships are build in 2002 and the company was incorporated in 2018, at a 20 years life expectancy that means all loans for the purchase of the fleet is due in 2022. Whether they make a killing now or not they will have to discharge their debts, notwithstanding the fact that some of that debt may be convertible. These kind of loans also have profit distribution covenants so their dividend will be limited. Don't expect to see a big pay out. Furthermore, we don't know the lasting impact of covid-19 so they will have to keep a financial buffer, which again will be in the SLA.

>> No.18640912

Ok thanks, i'm just going to hold for a couple of months instead of buying more which i was contemplating.
But still the one contract for 180 days at 69k is enough to pay back half of the debt needed to pay for that ship. If they're smart they'll use the extra money to buy invest in newer ships rather than in more ships because after the glut has been spread out over all the world, the need for tankers is going to stay low for a couple of years.

Could someone explain why my bets from yesterday are mooning? Some of them seem heavily into exploration (HES, FANG), so shouldn't they be tanking? Do they magically have storage nobody knows about? Trump said they're saving HES on April 15, it's far back enough that this should be priced in already.

You’re incorrect about piping hydrogen through natural gas infrastructure at more than about 5% hydrogen by volume. The transport of hydrogen from Australia (or anywhere) requires incredibly expensive hardware to cool and pressurize the hydrogen.

Why would people pay more money to shuffle valueless stock around? I can kind of see it, but without demand there's going to be less production. We're already seeing the high cost-of-operation sites going into mothballs. With less oil to move there would be less contracts to move it.
Also nobody is going to pay a premium to move an asset that has no value.
I expect there's a rush to expand current storage operations, but it feels like a leap to believe they're going to randomly start mass shipping crude all over the place.

anons Ive never purchased an option
What is the catch on a call or a put?
from what I understand I set a strike price and I am not obligated to act on the call or put
so say I wanted to buy a call on FRO for 1000 stocks at $11 strike price
the risk would be that FRO would not increase past $11 but if I decide not to act on the call what is the reprecussion?
would I incur a fee based on the risk I am assuming? like if I set it for 1 month instead of 2-3?

>> No.18643748

You lose that investment if the strike price don't hit. Longer term options are generally safer but priced so. May options dropping now but ull see longer dated aren't which tells you something

>> No.18643820

this anon gets it. OP doesn't realize it's priced in, all the tickers he listed are already up off their near lows. it's fucking over.

>> No.18643828

When you buy a call or put you pay a premium upfront. That premium is not recoverable, so if your strike price is not hit, you lose your premium completely and get nothing.
On the other hand, if you do it right (i.e. don't create an infinite loss, limited gains scenario like most /smg/ retards), you are heavily hedged against being wrong (your maximum loss is the premium, you can never lose more than that) while having the same gains as the direction of the stock you chose minus the premium.
Thus the risk is associated with failure to hit the strike price exclusively. This can be avoided by itm options, but then the premium will match.

>>Why not invest in these on land storage tanks and pipelines rather than export/import dependant tanker ships?
Because Tankers are storage of last resort, and the thought process is that the rates that they're charging have not yet been entirely priced in. Specifically - the earnings they're seeing now will take a few months to materialize in their financials.

Meanwhile, pipelines and land storage tanks have been nearing capacity for a while. While much more reliable, they will very likely be less volatile in coming months. Thus, for traders looking to maximize volatility and aren't adverse to the greater risk associated with storage of last resort, tankers are an attractive investment.

After reading about FRO, predictions, comments, analysis, for the past few hours...I think I'm just going to go balls to the wall with it. Gonna buy more $13 May 15 calls and even more June $14-16 calls. Fuck it. I'm here to make a shit ton of money. Hopefully this is a good start.

Actually, still don't understand this crap. Sorry to turn this into an options trading lesson...

So let's say my May 15 calls (bought 4 contracts for a total of $240) will a strike price of $13 and break even of $13.60 were to hit, say $14 dollars before they expired. How much money would I end up with?

Thinking of going much bigger with my next buys, but want to figure this out first. My guess is it wouldn't be much, like $300 profit?

>> No.18646382

A call entitles you to buy the underlying shares at the strike price. If strike is $13 and share price at expiry is $14, you have made $1 per share - premium. Assuming premium is $0.60 per share, that means you made $0.40 per share (IF you exercise and exercising is free and you don't have commissions), which is $160 total (100 shares per contract * 4 contracts * $0.40 per share).
