they have Charters locked in. Some may be for longer terms than desired as they may miss some of the run-up in day rates, however profit improved as did the other metrics I saw. So far the demand for LNG ships is still outstripping planned construction so this would seem to be a "Perfect Dividend Payer"
i am saying general market malaise. TGP is doing it right but many investors are squeamish and are headed for sidelines after earnings reports. I am sticking with this well run company and the attractive yield.
