Teekay Tankers: A More Positive Outlook For 2022

Teekay Tankers announced a total adjusted net loss of $14.00 million, or $0.41 per share, during the first quarter, decreasing from a loss of $22.00 million, or $0.65 per share. The business outlook is turning slightly bullish due to trade disruptions and the rerouting of cargoes following the war in Ukraine. I recommend buying TNK on any weakness below $17. Introduction The Bermuda-based Teekay Tankers Ltd. (TNK) released its first-quarter 2022 results on May 12, 2022. Important note: This article is an update of my article published on April 19, 2022. I have been following TNK on Seeking Alpha since 2021. 1 - 1Q22 Results Snapshot The company posted a quarterly adjusted loss of $0.41 per share compared to a loss of $0.65 per share a year ago. The results were slightly better than expected due to higher spot tanker rates. Net income is again a loss of $13.94 million compared to $21.37 million a year ago. TNK 1Q22 highlights Presentation (Teekay Tankers) CEO Kevin Mackay said in the conference call: Our results improved quarter-over-quarter were primarily due to higher spot tanker rates. We have maintained a focus on financial strength, supported by our recent attractive refinancings and vessel sales that have taken advantage of its firm asset market Teekay Tankers is now the last remaining subsidiary of the "Teekay group" after the company sold Teekay LNG to Stonepeak on January 22, 2022. 2 - Stock Performance As we can see below, TNK has done quite well in 2022 but is now retracing from its high in June. TNK is up 25% on a one-year basis. Data by YCharts 3 - Investment Thesis The investment thesis for TNK is always a strenuous exercise due to the inherent extreme volatility of the Tankers industry, and the rest of 2022 will not be different. However, the sector has turned around and may continue to perform well in 2022. After a slow start in 2022, the tankers industry experienced a notable spike in spot tanker rates late in 1Q22. This increase was driven primarily by the impact of the ongoing Ukraine conflict. The midsize tankers segment benefitted the most due to disruptions in oil trading patterns. TNK rates (TNK Presentation) TNK operates mainly in this segment and saw an increase in ton-mile demand, pushing higher rates (see table below). CEO Kevin Mackay said in the conference call: However, Russia's invasion of Ukraine in late February, led to an increase in tanker rates, particularly in the Aframax and Suezmax sectors due to trade disruptions and the rerouting of cargoes. The company said that this trend is continuing in the second quarter, and according to the Fearnleys Weekly Report end of June, the Tankers market is still doing reasonably well. In the presentation, the company indicated the 2Q22 to-date spot. TNK secured strong second quarter-to-date spot tanker rates of $27,400 per day for the Suezmax fleet, $30,900 per day for the Aframax fleet, and $30,400 per day for the LR2 fleet. TNK 2Q22 spot rates (Teekay Tankers) Because most of the company's vessels are trading in the spot market, TNK is well-positioned to generate strong cash flow in 2022. CEO Kevin Mackay said in the conference call: As shown by the chart on the right of the slide, crude oil exports from the US Gulf to Europe at the end of April were the highest since March 2020 with the vast majority being moved on Aframaxes and Suezmaxes. Due to the nature of the lot of regions involved and the need for greater flexibility and discharge options, midsized tankers have benefited more significantly from these changing trade patterns compared to VLCCs, where rates have remained relatively weak. The net impact of these changes has been a lengthening in average voyage distances and therefore higher ton-mile demand. Total fleet: Type 1Q21 1Q22 Suezmax 12,294 13,786 Aframax 15,679 18,037 LR2 12,223 15,491 Source: TNK release. In 1Q22, TNK completed the sale of three vessels built in 2004 and 2005 for approximately $44 million. It includes one 2005-built Aframax sold for roughly $15 million and two other vessels that were previously announced. TNK fleet is specialized in crude oil and refined petroleum products tankers. Below is the fleet status as of May 1, 2022. TNK Fleet status as of May 1, 2022 (Teekay Tankers) Segment Number of vessels Owned and leased vessels 46 Chartered-in vessels 5 Total 51 However, as we can see above, TNK is highly specialized, which increases stock volatility. Thus, I continue to recommend short-term trading LIFO and taking advantage of the market's wild swings. The best way to profit here is to trade about 65%-80% of your position short term and keep a small long-term holding for a much higher price target. The lack of dividends is also a deterrent.
