FSL Trust: US0.95c DPU.

Friday, October 22, 2010

FSL Trust has declared a DPU of US0.95c, payable on 26 November 2010. The EDGE has a good write up and the following provides some solace to unitholders worried about the early termination of charters by Groda for the two ships:

"Revenue for 3Q FY10 declined 4.9% year-on-year (y-o-y) to US$23.4 million compared to US$24.6 million in 3Q FY09. The 3Q FY10 revenue includes freight revenue of US$2.5 million earned by the vessels FSL Hamburg and FSL Singapore deployed in the product tanker spot market during the period.

"This mitigated the loss of bareboat charter lease rentals of US$3.8 million for the quarter due to the premature termination of bareboat leases for FSL Hamburg and FSL Singapore."

The decline in overall revenue is expected but it was not as bad as feared. This could possibly explain the strengthening unit price of the trust over the last couple of months.

Technically, it seems that price has hit resistance at 48c.  Could the rising 20dMA give a much needed nudge for price to move higher?  Could the more benign news plus income distribution be positive catalysts?


OBV has been gently rising which suggests that some quiet accumulation has been taking place. MFI, with its higher lows, suggests sustained demand.  Indeed, we could see the MFI decline a bit more to retest 50% and the uptrend would still be intact. MFI is a function of price and volume. So, a slight decline in price or volume or both would see it coming down.

The declining 200dMA should provide a rather strong resistance at 50c in the event of a further upmove in price. I would do a partial divestment if unit price should rise to that level.
