+ Watch NAT
on My Watchlist
The Company was formed for the purpose of acquiring and chartering three Suezmax tankers.
While this is an energy dependant stock. The demand for Oil Tankers will contiinue to rise as long as the current sitting President is in office. After the next elections I think we will see an inward look at developing our own Oil & Gas within the US.
NAT saw tanker rates rise from $14,100 (Q4 2013) to $26,300 (Q1 2014), which is also up from $12,466 (Q1 2013). If this trend continues NAT will be able to boost its already huge 9.8% dividend, which management has stated that it will do if it is able to. NAT is all about the spot prices of tankers, which means the good times are good but the bad times are terrible. Tanking rates have been on the decline since 2010, but if rates have bottomed out and are on the rise, good times and great returns will ensue.
3rd Party Pick
Extreme oversold TOS - bullish chart
In 1 word, OILStock is cheap, half that of GNTX & has higher Dividend.Plus, "Mad Money" says it is a TOP Stock to have.
A play on the chinese economy growth will procide businees for NAT once again.
fleet is ageing and income has been dropping.
chart looks good
It is using common sense to keep its fleet in line and prepare for an upswing in the tanker market.
Speculative pick in the Oil Tanker business which is presently in the tank. But this company has no debt and the staying power to hang in until day rates improve.
This stock is rated a buy.
breakeven of around 12k day is one of lowest in industry when rates do turn around. dont like the paying of dividend by taking on debt. div may be cut in future if slump continues for to long.
So is now the time to back up the truck on this stock? With historic lows around $10 share, I don't see much potential downside here from where it's currently trading.Nicely run company. Well managed.CEO keeps saying over and over they will not cut the dividend, it is important to the shareholders.I am not sure how much immediate real upside % we will see, especially if management keeps diluting the stock, but at a 10% or so divvy, I am willing to wait.Seems like a really nice base hit, if not a potential home run, especially given the financial weakness of some of their competitors.
no debt and buying more ships at discounted prices. As economy improves, so should nat.
Go for broke on all shipping tankers
Bulk shipping will return over the next 5 years.I think the maximum negative outlook is priced into these stocks.
Good balance sheet it will do well when cycle is favorable
low debt shipping company
Contrarian, dividend stock. Current dividend yield beats the 0.005% I earn on my checking account. Entire sector is depressed with upside potential.
