BofA Cuts Oil Tankers, OMI to Neutral

Friday, October 20, 2006

Shipping rates could underperform fourth-quarter expectations by 20 percent, the brokerage added.

Shares of OMI, the owner and operator of crude oil tankers, have increased over 25 percent in value this year to date, outperforming its peers by over 20 percent and the S&P 500 by 18 percent, it added.
