Ben een beetje aan het googlen en dan zie ik dat andere tanker companies ook positief zijn tav de korte termijn. Dit zegt bijv Teekay bij de presentatie van hun Q4/2015 resultaten, maar ook daat de laatste weken koersdruk:
Looking ahead, the Company anticipates that many of the positive fundamentals which existed in 2015 will continue during 2016. Global oil demand is forecast to grow by 1.3 mb/d in 2016 (based on the average of IEA, EIA, and OPEC forecasts). While this is a decrease from 2015 oil demand growth of 1.7 mb/d, it is above the average growth rate of 1.0 mb/d over the last decade. Global oil production is anticipated to remain high with no change to OPEC policy expected in 2016. In addition, the return of Iranian production is projected to add up to 0.5 mb/d of supply in 2016, further increasing global crude oil exports and keeping oil prices relatively low. Finally, while tanker fleet growth is set to increase in 2016, the tanker fleet growth is relatively modest for the mid-size sectors with anticipated tanker fleet growth of 4.5 percent and 4.0 percent in the Suezmax and Aframax/LR2 fleets, respectively, which compares favorably to the average fleet growth in the last decade of approximately 5.0 percent per annum. Furthermore, the fleet growth is weighted towards the second half of the year and thus, the full impact should be felt more in 2017 than in 2016.
