In general, Yangzijiang has the best fundamental compare with other stocks in this Maritime Index, followed by Jaya Holding. Cosco & NOL fundamental are pretty weak at the moment.

As Yangzijiang has the largest market capitalisation and the best fundamental in all the shipping stocks in Singapore, we shall take a cue from Yangzijiang’s earning and stock chart for any hint for recovery.

Yangzijiang Stock Chart

Yangzijiang broke out from a Falling Wedge and currently retracing to test the 200D SMA support. If Yangzijiang rebounds from this support level, the stock will start a medium up trend to the price target of $1.20 (Resistance of a Long Term Declining Line)


NOL Stock Chart

NOL chart is still very bearish and no sign of reversal yet.


COSCO Stock Chart

COSCO may be finding the bottom (potential forming of Double Bottoms) but need to see whether COSCO can clear the 200D SMA resistance or not before talking about the trend reversal.
