Expect to see it put into service anytime soon. All of the other ships are now active, and recent rates have been in the 8000 to 12,000 GBP range, which should be quite profitable. If oil prices can hold above $50, things should be looking up.
a1, you need to do a little reading....just google ex-dividend and you will learn that you do not get the dividend if you buy on the ex date....ex means it's no longer there. Also, you don't need to own it for three days to receive the dividend. It is sufficient to buy on the day before the ex date and sell it (or don't) on the ex date.
Incidentally, I think that it's OK to buy DHT....today, tomorrow, or anytime soon. Management is doing a good job.
This stock is very dependent on VLCC rates, which had been falling, but now appear to be strongly rebounding. I'm sure it's going to remain volatile. But, I agree that it's significantly undervalued, at present levels.
Charles R. Weber posts them every day for tankers....in terms that are tough to decipher. But, I use them to see trends. For service vessels like NAO has, google "North Sea Activity List". Under "Short Term Fixtures" there are rates shown for some fixtures....usually in British pounds.
I just caught an interview with Herb on CNBC. Notably, he said that he bought another $500K of NAO last week, that he isn't worried about NAO, and is looking to buy more ships because he can get them cheaply. All that made the stock pop a little.
