    Lloyd's List seems bullish on Product Tankers most of us, I don't subscribe, but the headlines and first 25 words or so, in about three articles, all point in our direction...............Dave

    • Bloomberg Trifagura report from Jan 21 - bought 3 MR2s en bloc on subjects. Sounds cheap, eh?NNA has several of these to hit the water this q and with 50/50 over about 13k so earnings could see a bump. I added at 2.62 yesterday. Article says:
      Returns for product tankers are gaining as ships hauling cargoes of crude oil generate weaker earnings. Daily returns for medium-range vessels climbed 6.5 percent to $16,000 since the start of the year, according to data from the London-based Baltic Exchange, while very large crude carriers, the biggest oil tankers, are losing $3,890 a day.

      Trafigura paid between $60 million and $70 million for the vessels, according to Clarkson Plc’s Shipping Intelligence Network, which cited shipbrokers it didn’t identify. The tankers were built between 2008 and 2009 and each has a capacity of about 50,000 deadweight tons, it said.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • One cant be sure of the value, since it depends a bit also on if charters were attached. But, the price per vessel ($20-23M) was less than half what NNA paid in 2011 ($44M) for a similar vintage MR2 tanker. Then, they bought 2, but they had attractive 3-yr charters. Even accounting for those, it appears than NNA paid dearly in comparison...
