Bocom: CONTAINER SHIPPING still ‘Market Perform’

Bocom International said it is keeping its “Market Perform” recommendation on Hong Kong-listed container shipping firms.

contships_bocomSource: BocomLast week, share prices of HK-listed container shipping companies underperformed the market index, wiping out some of the outperformance over the past month.

“As we have said, with the interim results announcements drawing near, downward revisions of earnings outlooks for the container shipping companies may create some short-term pressure on share prices,” Bocom said.

The research house said it expects an operating environment improvement from 2H13 onwards.

“We believe the market should not be too surprised by the recent retrenchment of freight rates on the Asia-Europe tradelane after a hefty recent increase.

“Meanwhile, more container shipping companies are joining the ranks to implement the Peak Season Surcharge on the Transpacific tradelane.”

Pls kindly disclose if the author has a vested interest in the above mentioned stock for amateur readers to decide.
This stock has a fantastic run up to date and talked about in the forum.
As far as I know, my personal opinion is that the container sector is far from coming out of the doldrums.
Cheers.
