A recent news article published in the UP-Indices states that LNG shipping stocks: The drop has arrived.
5% lost last week
The UP World LNG Shipping Index (UPI), the world’s only stock index focused on LNG shipping companies, lost 5% last week. U.S. stocks represented by the S&P 500 (SPX) index lost 3.37%.
The UP World LNG Shipping Index started declining, as we expected. UP Index did an all-time high before the decline, and its gains are still huge for this year. SPX has declined since the new-year eve and is doing lower-low now and again. The green line on the UP Index chart is a support line, but we don´t expect the decline will touch this line.
New Fortress Energy
New Fortress Energy (NASDAQ: NFE) lost 14% last week. That was the most significant decline and the only one in the two-digit range. Just a little below this range was the loss of GasLog Partners (NYSE: GLOP), which lost 9.8%. Excelerate Energy (NASDAQ: EE) lost 8.8%. Awilco LNG (OSE ALNG) declined by 8.5%, and Chevron (NYSE: CVX) lost 7.5%.
Flex LNG (NYSE / OSE: FLNG), with a loss of 5.3%, separates this group from constituents, which lost around 4%. In this large group were bp (NYSE: BP) -4.7%, Capital Product Partners (NASDAQ: CPLP), which lost 4.5%, Exmar (BRX: EXM) -4.4%, Golar LNG (NASDAQ: GLNG) -4% and Shell (NYSE: Shel), which declined by 3.7%.
