Tsakos Energy Receives a Buy from Maxim Group
Maxim Group analyst James Jang maintained a Buy rating on Tsakos Energy (NYSE: TNP) today and set a price target of $4.50. The company’s shares opened today at $3.50.
“Ahead of 1Q18 results scheduled to be reported tomorrow, pre-open, we are reducing estimates for TNP through 2019 as we expect the current low earnings environment to persist through 2H19. We expect minimal asset value appreciation through the end of 2018 and we are lowering our price target to $4.50, from $5. Although our forecasts for TNP have been lowered, we maintain our expectations of a tanker recovery in 2H19 as the IMO mandated low-sulphur regulations helps to re-balance supply/demand fundamentals; accelerated scrapping of older tanker tonnage should continue through 2019.”
According to TipRanks.com, Jang is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 22.4% and a 47.6% success rate. Jang covers the Services sector, focusing on stocks such as Dynagas LNG Partners LP, Nordic American Tanker, and Eagle Bulk Shipping.
