H.C. Wainwright analyst Magnus Fyhr initiated coverage on five Shipping stocks with a Buy rating for all of them. Fyhr states that despite dry bulk equities being up more than 100% in the past year and spot rates being at their highest level in over a decade, he remains constructive on the outlook for the dry bulk market. He adds that moderating demand growth coupled with limited fleet growth should further tighten the supply/demand balance and support strong vessel earnings over the next year. He believes stricter environmental regulations should favor companies with modern fuel-efficient fleets as older fuel vessels are likely to be margin.
