The Clownery of the Shippers Continues, as $DRYS and Others Get Annihilated

There was never a reason for these bastards to run higher in the first place, given that there are hordes of zombie dry bulkers littering the seas keeping day rates at artificially depressed levels. The only way this issue gets corrected, frankly, is for excess supply to be scrapped. Until then, enjoy your depressed day rates and floating bankruptcy vessels.

The sector looked good in the pre-market, but have since given it all up and more.


Day rates for capesizes are at a fraction of what they were back in 2007 and half of what they were in 2014.


At the forefront of this fuckery is DRYS, a company that saw its stock rise this morning after news that it agreed to terms with one of its lenders.

Like I said, clownery.

Brace For A Year Of "Peak Everything, Big Rotations" - Here Is BofA's Guide How To Trade It

Over the past year, Bank of America's chief investment strategist Michael Hartnett has often repeated that when looking at the "transforming word", one core theme that emerges is the rotation away from monetary to fiscal policy, and from "Wall Street"-focused strategies to "Main Street." Now, under the Trump presidency, his vision may be validated. On a report "peak returns, big rotations" he shares BofA's asset allocation under the new regime for 2017 as follows: long stocks (except in North America where he is bearish), real
estate, commodities, and the U.S. dollar, while shorting bonds.

Among his suggested trades are long inflation, short deflation; long Main St., short Wall St.; long fiscal winners, short "ZIRP" winners; long real assets, short financial assets. Hartnett also lays out the expected returns these various trades: low/negative for bonds, with single-digits for U.S. stocks, commodities, U.S. dollar, EM; sees double- digits for Japan, Europe, U.K. stocks, oil.

Hartnett says. "we believe that for first time since 2006, there will be no big easing of monetary policy in the G7, and that interest rates & inflation will surprise to the upside."

A summary of the bank's 7 key themes and trade is shown in the table below:

When looking at 2017, Hartnett says that he expects a year of "peak returns and big rotations" and break out the divergence from 2016 as follows:

In 2016
