The Q3 slides--http://tenn.irwebpage.com/files/TNP_Q3_2012.pdfTNP do attempt to cover their negative stats well.- Company reports dividend of 50c for 2012 (True statement). But one payout is the Q4 2011payout. But 50c reported in such a manner hides the point that the dividend got slashed from15c => 5c- The company claims 1245 months of charter coverage (slide 7). Again, true. But digging a little deeper, the four newest Suezmax vessels have 9.5-15 years of charter coverage. Throwin the LNG tanker, and probably 50 of the charter coverage is covered by those 5 vessels.- Strengthened LNG toehold- first mover advantage?? This one is a true embellishment. TNP orderedits new LNG tanker in 2012, and is thus in the back-of-the-line. Actually, way, way, back-of-the-line.There are at least 50 LNG tankers delivering to owners before TNP receive their second LNG tanker.On the positive side, their 50% charter coverage is decent for 2013 and TNP has the shuttletankers starting up in the new year.
