Dry Bulk Shipping


Freight rates continue to rise; upside risks to 2016E
supply growth as scrapping continues to moderate
The BDI rose w/w, driven by higher rates across vessel segments except for
Handysize: Capesize earnings rose 11% w/w to $8.3K/day. Panamax earnings
rose 1% w/w to $6.3K/day for the week ending September 2. Supramax index
rose 1% while Handysize index was steady w/w. No period fixture was concluded
last week vs one period fixture concluded in the previous week at $9.0k for 12-16
months. Capesize time-charter rate rose 14% w/w to $8.3K/day (source:
Clarksons).
Capesize chartering activity fell 15% w/w but rose 14% y/y to 41 ships: 76%
will carry iron ore (81% a week ago), 24% coal (17%) and 0% others (2%). JanDec 2015 split: 77% iron ore (76% in 2014), coal 20% (18%), others 3% (6%).

China and Rest of Asias share of shipping demand rose while Europe's

fell 18% w/w for Handymax but a more significant 89% for Handysize.

JPM View Some upside risks to 2016E global dry bulk shipping supply
growth if scrapping continues to fall; demand has recovered driven by China
but sustainability is key to support freight rates: Current global dry bulk shipping
capacity implies only 1.7% growth annualized in 2016E, well below the 7% growth
implied by the orderbook. However, the rise in scrapping continues to moderate
(+3% y/y in Jan-Aug vs double-digit YTD growth in Jan-May and high single-digit
YTD growth in Jan-Jul). Annualized scrapping implies only c.5% of capacity vs
c.7% in Jan-Apr, 2016 and c.6% in May-Jun, 2016 as freight rates have recovered.
Lower scrapping was mostly driven by the Capesize segment whose contribution to
total scrapping went down from 61% in May, 2016 to just 22% in Aug, 2016. New
ship orders have completely dried up as well, down 84% YTD on top of 55% y/y
fall in 2015. Current orderbook implies 7.2% supply growth in 2016E. However,
like 2015, we believe net supply growth will be much lower as current deliveries are
implying a slippage of c.45%. Assuming slippage of c.45% in full year 2016 and
scrapping of c.3%, 2016E supply growth is expected at c.3.4% with upside risk if
scrapping remains low. On the demand side, Chinas iron ore and coal imports
have staged a smart recovery in 2016 so far (iron ore imports rose 9% y/y YTD
while coal imports rose 12% y/y and much better than 2015 growth) but coal
imports are expected to come under pressure going forward as China eases
supply restrictions. Capacity discipline and sustainability in demand recovery is

Forward curve points to higher rates in 4Q16 in Capesize


and Panamax vessel segments which is traditionally a peak
season
FFA indications for Capesize TC are at $10.4K/day in 4Q16 (current: $6.8K/day),
$5.4K/day in 1Q17, $7.3K/day in 2Q17, $8.5K/day in 2017. FFA for Panamax TC
are at $6.9K/day for 4Q16 (current: $5.2K/day), $4.9K/day in 1Q17, $6.0K/day in
2Q17, $5.8K/day in 2017. FFA for Supramax TC are at $7.2K/day for 4Q16 (current:
$7.6K/day), $5.0K/day in 1Q17, $5.9K/day in 2Q17, $6.0K/day in 2017. FFA for
Handysize TC are at $5.9K/day for 4Q16 (current: $6.1K/day), $4.6K in 1Q17,
$5.3K/day in 2Q17, $5.2K/day in 2017 (source: Clarksons, SSY).

Recent News
1) Chinese government announced the relaxation of its policy on supply restrictions
on coal given demand-supply balance turned into deficit. The government will allow
some mines (with advanced productivity) to operate back to 330 days vs 276 days.
We believe this could slow the momentum in coal imports going forward driven by
higher domestic production and weaker seasonal demand in 4Q as we exit the peak
summer demand which is negative for the sector especially Capesize and Panamax
vessel segments. 2) Chinas iron ore imports rose 18% y/y in Aug-16 (steady m/m
from high base in July, 2016 which was the second highest level on record) resulting
in YTD growth of 9%, much better than 2% growth in 2015. Our Metals & Mining
Research team expects iron ore imports to remain elevated in the near-term as
seaborne supply continues to rise while construction lead indicators in China remain
firm. Chinas coal imports rose a significant 52% y/y in Aug, 2016 (+26% m/m and
highest level since Jan, 2015) resulting in YTD growth of 12% y/y, much better than
30% decline in 2015, mainly driven by the 276-day rule (vs 330-day rule before but
this is relaxed now and will likely put pressure on coal imports going forward), low
port inventories and seasonal summer demand. Having said that, the domestic output
is expected to rise as the supply side restrictions are being relaxed, miners turn
profitable and summer power demand fades. Please click here for more details.

Important Disclosures
Company-Specific Disclosures: Important disclosures, including price charts and credit opinion history tables, are available for
compendium reports and all J.P. Morgancovered companies by visiting https://jpmm.com/research/disclosures, calling 1-800-477-0406,
or e-mailing research.disclosure.inquiries@jpmorgan.com with your request. J.P. Morgans Strategy, Technical, and Quantitative

Explanation of Equity Research Ratings, Designations and Analyst(s) Coverage Universe:
J.P. Morgan uses the following rating system: Overweight [Over the next six to twelve months, we expect this stock will outperform the
average total return of the stocks in the analysts (or the analysts teams) coverage universe.] Neutral [Over the next six to twelve
months, we expect this stock will perform in line with the average total return of the stocks in the analysts (or the analysts teams)
coverage universe.] Underweight [Over the next six to twelve months, we expect this stock will underperform the average total return of
the stocks in the analysts (or the analysts teams) coverage universe.] Not Rated (NR): J.P. Morgan has removed the rating and, if
applicable, the price target, for this stock because of either a lack of a sufficient fundamental basis or for legal, regulatory or policy
reasons. The previous rating and, if applicable, the price target, no longer should be relied upon. An NR designation is not a
recommendation or a rating. In our Asia (ex-Australia) and U.K. small- and mid-cap equity research, each stocks expected total return is
compared to the expected total return of a benchmark country market index, not to those analysts coverage universe. If it does not appear
in the Important Disclosures section of this report, the certifying analysts coverage universe can be found on J.P. Morgans research
website, www.jpmorganmarkets.com.
