According to an April 27 report from The Business Times, there has been a slew of upgrades on the offshore and marine, and shipping sector on account of early signs of a pick-up in new-builds. Yangzijiang's stock has risen some 28 per cent this month on news that it was acquiring rig-builder PPL Shipping for $155m through a joint investment. Cosco's stock has surged some 48 per cent in the past three weeks following its announcement of new shipbuilding contracts worth a total of $106.6m.
