Holdings: Post-October 2019 - Strong performance in line with N100 Index

Performance In October, the holdings in our universe showed strong performance. Both the mono and non-mono holdings performed strongly, reporting a 6.3% and 5.4% average increase in share prices respectively. In doing so they both outperformed the n100 index by 1.3% and 0.4% repetitively. Discount The average discount contracted further to 11.7%, compared to 12.4% at the last holding update in September. The discount contraction is mainly driven by a contraction in the mono-holding discount from 24.6% to 17.1%. The non-mono holding discount remained largely flat at 9.6%.

Holdings: Post-October 2019 - Strong performance in line with N100 Index

Performance In October, the holdings in our universe showed strong performance. Both the mono and non-mono holdings performed strongly, reporting a 6.3% and 5.4% average increase in share prices respectively. In doing so they both outperformed the n100 index by 1.3% and 0.4% repetitively. Discount The average discount contracted further to 11.7%, compared to 12.4% at the last holding update in September. The discount contraction is mainly driven by a contraction in the mono-holding discount from 24.6% to 17.1%. The non-mono holding discount remained largely flat at 9.6%.

EURONAV - KBC Securities Company Note 11-12-2018 - Copper bottomed and ready for market uptake EURN BB

We like Euronav for its conservative balance sheet, rejuvenated (merged) fleet and strong VLCC exposure, allowing it to fully profit from a potential market uptake. Euronav is the listed pure play VLCC operator, owning 6% of a very fragmented market with a fleet consisting of 43 VLCCs and 26 Suezmaxes. Freight rates were still challenging in Q3 but improved vs Q2 which is against normal seasonal movement. In recent weeks we have seen rates reaching the highest point since 2016. Given Euronav’s operational leverage, the disruption IMO2020 will bring and market momentum we upgrade our recommenda...
