Singapore Shipping caught my eye while I am doing the usual chart screening. Based on Chart 1 below, Singapore Shipping has been trading between $0.325 – 0.350 since 13 Apr 2015.

ADX has been strengthening since 24 Jun 2015 and it is now around 31.1, indicative of a trend. All the exponential moving averages (EMAs) are rising which represent a strong uptrend.

Indicators such as MACD, RSI have strengthened since 13 Apr 2015. As a result, odds are higher for an upside breakout from its three month trading range $0.325 – 0.350 in the next couple of months. In the event of a breakout, a measured technical target is around $0.375.

Near term supports: $0.340 / $0.335 / $0.325

Near term resistances: $0.350 / $0.360 / $0.375 – $0.385

Some Noteworthy Developments

FY16F Results Are Likely To Be Strong; Backed By Long Term Contracts

FY15 (financial year ended in Mar) revenue and net profit rose 2 percent and 9 percent to US$35.1 million and US$9.3 million respectively.

Based on their FY15 results, management indicated that they have obtained delivery of three vessels and these vessels were secured to blue chip customers via long term 10 year charters in the 2HFY15.

These vessels would have their maiden full year contribution in FY16F. Consequently, management believes that they should perform better in FY16F.

According to Lim & Tan, there is scope that Singapore Shipping may be able to double their fleet in the next 2-3 years to further boost growth under the stewardship of the new CEO, Mr Ow Yew Heng, son of Chairman & Founder Mr Ow Chio Kiat.
